Just had to drop you a note to THANK YOU for posting the PS2 repair instructions on Tweak3D. I have a first edition that has amazingly working all this time, and finally broke last week, right after I bought a bunch of new games. But, I found your instructions and made the gear adjustment, and you saved me the $150 it would have cost to get a new system. Plus, my husband was terribly impressed by my technical skills. Thanks again!

WOW** Thank You!
I was real close to slamming my PS2 down, and I was actually looking on ebay to buy a new one. On there someone was trying to sell a manual for $4 to repair a ps2, I almost bought it, instead I ran a Google search and found your webpage with AWESOME step by step picture instructions, and got my PS2 working in less than a half hour.
I THANK YOU GREATLY, I feel like I should have paid you.
I was having unbelievable frustration with DREs, especially with Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando having just come out. I searched for PS/2 repair and came across your site. 15 minutes later and my PS/2 was loading first time, every time.
Thanks for taking the time for putting this information out there!
Thank you so much for the guide on ps2 repair! This guide saved me $40
at my local gaming store to have the ps2 fixed. I have the same model that
was covered in the guide (SCPH-30001) and it worked perfectly after
cleaning the laser
(which was grey because of all the dust, rather than blue). I also had
to rotate the white disc near the laser to have dvds work. This saved me
a total of $200 because i was going to buy new discs (i didn't know ps2s COULD
break until my friend told me so!
Your guide was very helpful, thanks for making it!
Thanks for the PS2 Guide
Wow.. I never knew that could be so helpful! I still get some errors
for Vice City.... but it's much better! Thanks so much, bro.. my other
games work also! Finally.. X Box and PS2 now work! Thanks bud!
Hello! I know you are busy but I just had to say "thank you" for your
article on ps2 repair on Tweak3D. It has helped me fix both of my kid's old
ps2's and made him and I so very happy! You are really a great person and we
thank you! -Lee and Dakota
Gdday - just a quick note to say thank you for showing me how to fix my Playstation. I was just about to throw it away when I found your site. I kept getting the DRE and thought it was stuffed... I did what you said and I couldn't turn the gear... I forced it a little bit more and it fell into place. My kids had dropped the ps2 and dislodged the gears. I would never of looked if i hadn't found your info...
Cheers, thanks again.
Thank you very much, you've made a six year old boy very happy. Have a great night.
