Default Where can I download a PS2 repair manual/guide?

sponsored links

 
I'm quite handy, and think that I could repair a PS2 if shown how, so is there anywhere that I can download a guide or manual?
I've seen them for sale on Ebay so I know they exist, but people on there sometimes sell things, which are available freely.
If anyone has one then could they email it to me?

Cheers for any help!

I just want a repair manual that covers all aspects of PS2 repairs. I've seen lots of faulty ones for sale, and believe that I could fix them, but I want to read a bit about it first

We have a wealth of knowledge here if you can think of a problem just ask away and I am sure that any number of fine people here can answer many repair questions on different aspects of ps2 repair

I have seen the thing on ebay also but I can say I wanted to spend $10 on it.

I learned alot from baldbouncer, charlie_ps2, and got a lot of interesting insights and ideas from madisonmods, spagboll, briny_uk and many many others on this board

Now I can:

Adjust,replace, and clean lasers
check fuses
Fix fan problems
Fix stuck trays
Replace faulty controller ports and/or fix power supplies
Troubleshoot and diaganose a whole lot of other problems pertaining to modchips

I have started my own PS2 repair business and I have fixed over 30 ps2's now

I'm also interested in setting myself up repairing ps2s. Looking at the faulty ones on Ebay, there seems to be some common faults eg the drive will only play cds, no dvds, the unit powers on but will not read anything, the unit powers on, but the drawer does not eject etc.
Are these common faults easy to resolve, and basically can I make a bit of extra cash doing so. I've recently finished an electronics degree so should be well able if shown how.

Perhaps you could email me some troubleshooting guides/solutions to common probs ps2daddy?

Cheers again!

BTW I am in the UK and as such would be looking mainly at PAL machines

Just to show you some examples, here are some that I thought of perhaps buying, repairing, and selling on. Are these faults easily(and cheaply) resolved? What would be the maximum to spend on any of these units?
