    Hello,

    Was wondering if you may be able to help me?

    I have a problem with a PS2. After watching a DVD recordable copy of Jerry Maguire (I know, I know) the PS2 now won't play games properly. When I insert a disc, it loads and the flicks through all the menus as if a button was stuck on the controller even if I take the controller out. The pointer seems to move on it's own as well. After it's been through all the menus it won't let you select anything at all.

    Any ideas?

    Nope, strange on that. Have you tried fully turning the system on and off using the switch at the back.

    Sometimes if I play an import game and then try a UK game without a full turn off with the rear switch, then it comes up asking me to insert a proper Playstation 2 disc. This will be something to do with the mod chip still being in the wrong region I guess and the power must still get to it unless the unit is fully powered down.

    Different problem I know but it's worth trying.

    No I haven't tried that, but I will now.

    Thanks again!

    I get that all the time, I've found I have to blow into the bit where the controller slots into on the front of the PS2.
