In January 2001, I purchased my ps2. since that time it has been fixed once replaced twice, and now its about to be replaced again. Every time the problem has been similar. First about two months after originally buying it the console stopped reading dvd movies. So I called sony and they repaired the problem, and not only did they repair the problem but I shipped the unit out and recieved it back in the same week. then three months later it stopped playing cd-rom and music cds. So I called Sony and they replaced it instead of fixing it. This was in late August early September. It last all the way to January where it would not play anything. Even though the warranty was up Sony replaced it again. I just got it about two weeks ago and already the system stop playing dvd movies and dvd-rom based games. It will play ps2 and ps1 cd-rom games and music cd's. I called sony and they are replacing it again. I don't want it replaced I just want it to work. I dont use any aftermarket products, no mod chips and I take critical care of it but I can not figure what's the problem. the only thing I can slightly suspect. is Blockbuster. The second time it had to be replaced, came a couple of hours after I played final fantasy 10 that I rented from blockbuster. And this week I did rent another game from blockbuster. Have anyone else out there expierience this problem. Are there any sony representatives out there surfing this site that can shed any light on this problem.
