about 3 days ago, i clicked on the psx4central.com bookmark, and it tries to redirect me to psx5central.com but it said not found.  2 nights later, a quarter after 11 p.m., i delete the extra word community on the website address and presto it takes me to psx5central.  at first it though it might not work but it works.

so titan, i think you accidently added the extra word community when you tried to make a redirect link to psx5 central.  since i was sleepy last night, so i just read a little bit of new posts and i went to sleep until now to notify you about the redirect ink.

I didn't do anything lol. You must have done that right after the server settings were changed and while I was waiting for a response from the host to fix it. It was a temporary glitch with the redirects that the host fixed. For some reason, it was adding an extra community to the address.

see.  its not just some commentators that said ps5 lookd like a router.  even you and me included think it looks like a router too.  lol. :D

And the original PS4 looked like an eraser lol. But I care about function over design. If it cools and reliable, I don't care. The PS4 as weird as it was is the only Sony console I haven't had some issue with besides my PS2 Slim. My PS2 fat and PS3 slim both had the laser burn out and I had to replace them (surprised about the PS3 slim because it wasn't a super common issue as far as I know. But IIRC, the PS3 had the disc read error like a month out of warranty lol). My original PlayStation now even has an issue reading discs. I have to stand it upright to read. And it's the model that's supposed to have fixed that issue. What's weird is it worked just fine before it got stored for like a decade. Guess sitting did something to the drive. I'll have to crack it open and figure it out. May just need to be cleaned and lubricated.

I can understand why you like the XSX design. Microsoft has kind of gone minimalist the last couple generations. But when they design their consoles, they want them to blend into your entertainment center. But Sony takes the opposite approach. They've always had criticism of their designs. They want it to stand out. I don't think they've had a console that didn't get made fun of (but it seems everyone liked the PS3 slim design). Quite frankly, I don't care. XSX looks like a mini fridge and the PS5 looks like a router. And that's ok. As long as it cools and functions properly, I'm fine with it. We don't want a red ring or yellow light of death again because design was more important than cooling.

Nice job on that. I guess it helps a lot having the correct tools for the job and you look to be nicely prepared to get it done. :thumbsup:

I've opened that PS2 so many times in the past lol. I used to do it with just a phillips head screw driver and a jewelers screw driver (for the drive cover). Otherwise to replace the laser, you just need a soldering iron to remove that solder point. So really, it's tools you probably have lying around, minus the soldering iron (which if you have a Harbor Freight equivalent in the UK, you can pick a cheap one up for like 10/15 bucks). I got that fancy screwdriver set because I knew I'd be working on a lot of electronics. That kit also came with a game bit so I can open NES cartridges (all mine work now :D I had to polish the games contacts but you need to open the cartridge up). I got the soldering iron because I needed to occupy my time during my furlough so I took up soldering lol. 30 bucks for the kit on Amazon and it came with some good stuff.

 I actually just bought an original Xbox yesterday that may or may not work. I should have it in a few weeks. I probably won't video that one though if I do need to crack it open because I honestly don't know a lot about them. All I know is if I need to replace that hard drive or anything like that, I'll need to hack the console. Microsoft makes their consoles extremely difficult to work on, unlike Sony (but the slim PS3 was a bit of a pain, but serviceable none the less. It's just more disassembly of little parts as opposed to PS2). But if I'm going to be buying and reselling these consoles, I need to be familiar with them :)

EDIT: Sorry Kurt. I accidentally hit "Modify" instead of "Quote" on your post and made my post thinking it was quoted :(

General PlayStation Discussion / Changing a laser on a PS2
« Last post by Titan on July 03, 2020, 03:33:56 PM »
Got bored and decided to permanently fix my 30001 model PS2. We all remember the infamous disc read error. What basically causes it is a weak laser. You can try raising the laser height, adjusting the pentiometer, or put it in the freezer (which we learned from GAMES didn't work  :laughing: ). These can be temporary reprieves but it will eventually fail. But a nice permanent fix is just replacing the damn laser for 15 bucks. You can get OEM lasers on Amazon. I made a video on how to do it. Gotta keep busy during lockdown :) Also, be kind. This is my first video :)

New domain is active. Update your bookmarks guys :) But there is a redirect too and that's permanent so if you forget or straggle, you'll still find the new domain automatically. Oh, and I am aware of the glitch with mobile devices. Hang tight it's in the works.
