This is about 15 years out of date but maybe someone might know!?

Does anyone still run a PS2 slim and is it noisy? Theres a serious amount of clicking when its running. I imagine its the arm moving back and forward but it sounds like a bag of spanners in a washing machine. Theres no rhythm to it or anything and it does it on all games, its just unnerving and is there a way to try and quieten it down?

At a guess it will be a worn laser unit. There is a very small plastic nub that rests in the worm screw and it wears after time. It's probably jumping around on the screw.

I think it was just a few screws, but the part in the picture doesn't have the worn piece on it.

Identification Playstation 2 Slim

The easiest way to identify which version of the PlayStation 2 Slim you have is by noting the model number on the manufacturer label on the back of your PlayStation 2 Slim (SCPH-XXXXX)
There are 4 different model numbers for the European versions of the PlayStation 2:
  • SCPH-7000X
  • SCPH-7500X
  • SCPH-7900X
  • SCPH-9000X
  • The X present in some of the model number represents a figure between 1 and 9
If you getting it from fleebay just sent the bloke a message and tell him which model you have
