Hi all Iam currently using my PS2 as my main player whilst my Panny is away being chipped. Until recently ive never bothered using the PS2 to play DVDs so iam not sure wether this problem is a result of my not setting up the machine right for films or wether it is a fault that has always been there since I had the machine. Anyway the problem is with the majority of disks I play everything is fine until around the layer change where it starts to stutter and then eventually stops and wont play further. Ive managed to skip past problem points and then search back up to just after the problem point where it then plays reasonably well with the odd stutter of picture flutter. What do you think guys? Iam almost certain the 12 month warranty has just expired isnt that always the case tho!!
