i just bought brand new thinner ps2 last night and it won't play any of the games: it reads the disc goes thru the intro and then freezes the discs are pretty close to new. i'm returning it...don't waste your time/money trying to get your ps2 to work...take it as a loss.. i guess i'll try xbox and start over with new games and controllers....

The Ps2 can't let u play copied games. If ur game is copied then u can't play it in ur Ps2. Only "original" Ps1 games could be played not copied games. Or it could b something else...

"I speak from experience. MY PS2 is 3 years old and I had the same problem with inserting a disc and hearing the system just click and hear the cd spin up and then click and hear it speed up again. A student of mine told me that it's actually a lens problem which SONY is aware of. So I called them, and they were very nice and sent me an authorized return number. Within 9 days, I had my PS2 back and it works and they didn't charge me at all.
Here's the link for the phone number to call.
http://www.us.playstation.com/support.aspx?id=howtoobtainservice"


I tried calling Sony up today and they told me that they are unaware of any defect with the PS2 and that they would not replace the lens free of charge. They would however offer me one of their repair options, with having to pay $45 to get it fixed. Is there more information available on this somewhere? The customer service guy and their supervisor had no clue about it and just said their was no defect and they could only offer me their normal repair options.

This worked:

From the second post, I just put some scotch tape on the blue game (Lego Star Wars) and it worked.

I took apart the PS2 and cleaned the laser, I also adjusted the gears. None of this helped. It sounded like it was stripping or something, so I figured I'd give the tape a shot. I know it sounds crazy but it worked - for me in this instance anyway.

My ps2 has been making a funny noise lately, it will do it randomly during gameplay, or wen i turn it on, it sounds like like it has something to do with the disk spinning becuz il get this crazy sound like something is loose but keeps repeating itself really quickly...sometimes gameplay will continue, but most times the game will freeze, now after trying to clean the insides of the ps2, it doesnt even read the disks, it will go "reading disc..." then stop
plz email me or reply if u can help

Hello,

Would someone kindly assist me in my PS2 problem? I have recently found then whenever I turn my PS2 on, and put in a DVD/Game it repeatedly flips through the menu options without it being touched. (Example. With a DVD, on the main page, it will constantly go from play movie to scene selection to options to extras and back to play movie again.) No matter what I do, it won't stop. Clicking on it with the controller has no effect. The only way it will quit is if I unplug the controller (and I used a brand new controller on the system to in case the one I had was faulty, but it did the same thing.)

The only thing I can currently do on the PS2 is watch a DVD with the controller unplugged (and that's only if the DVD will start automatically with out pushing the play movie option). If the controller is plugged in when the movie is playing it will start skipping to other scenes, fast forwarding, pause, and ultimately it will stop and give a the black screen. On the black screen, the PS2 will fly through the bottom line of the PS2 movie options continously.

Does someone know what is the matter with my PS2?

you can use scotch tape about an 1 inch long and put on the side with the picture. Make sure one of the tapes is on one side of the hole. The other tape on the other side exactly parralel to the 1st piece of tape. It should work better. Good luck!

This is concerning the all known disc read error.

Ahhh... the gear. I've just spent a chunk of time adjusting the little gear that moves the laser optics closer and farther away from the media (CD). I have had mixed results. You see, my PS2 plays DVDroms fine, but it will not play a PS1 games (black media) to save it's life.

I was able to adjust the gear to get a few PS1 games to read but this was at it's maximum hight and caused the laser optic to score a few disks. This also rendered the PS2 unable to read DVDroms.

I'm not about to tweak my PS2 into being nothing other than a PS1. But, I still want it to be double duty.

The optics are clean as most of you who actually crack the case will find out.

Forget the tape on the CD, fix it and make it work.

My next step is to adjust the voltage of the laser for the CDrom portion of it.

I hope that this feedback helps you all. I will post again with more information, if I can get it to work.

P.S. READ THE GOD DANG FORUM!!! before you post a stupid question. I've seen so many questions posted after an answer was given it makes me sick.

RTFM - Read The F**king Manual

As posted before (I know I've read it) is this link http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/ps2_disc_read_error_a.txt

it will tell you how to adjust the voltage on the laser.

Okay, ...this is a follow up to my last post.

After lurking around in the bowls of the internet I have found lost of information concerning disk read errors on the PS2. There is a large range of problems with the drive and there is a large range of adjustments that can be made to counter them.

The one fix that did work for me was to adjust a little screw located on the sled that moves the laser back and forth. Over time the sled will get play in it and this screw will need to be adjusted. Be very carefull when adjusting this because to much of an adjustment will leave you with a scored disk.

There us a quick way to tell if this might be your problem. Turn your PS2 upside down and se if the game loads. If it does than your sled needs to be adjusted.

There is also the option of adjusting the laser voltage. I strongly reccomend adjusting the sled first as even the smallest voltage adjustment to the laser can be damaging.

e-mail me if you have any questions...

My PS2 does the same thing....when i put a disk in and click on "Browser" it flashes "Reading disk" for about 2 seconds then it goes away and it doesnt even read the disk and it does that with all most of my games.

Sometimes it works if i keep pressing the "Open" button over and over again then it might finnally work but most of them dont work, expecally god of war, ive tried to get it to work and 300 times and nothing. Ive took it abort and clean it really good so....i just dont no, i guess ill open it again and figure out what to to with the little gear and the screws.

E-mail me if you have any ideas how to fix it

I bought a PS2 slim for my children for easter and to this day it will not play anything but some blue disks. I don't get a read disk error, it just simply says no data on disk, please insert playstation2 format disk. My children are very frustrated so does all this advice help this problem as well? Our machine is still under warranty so I do not want to have to open it if there is another way.

Here's how to fix the Reading Disc for 2 Secs problem.

Open your ps2 and remove the black lid over the disc tray. Once you have removed it clean around it. Make sure theirs no dust on the spinner. Also clean out the fan. Once I was done with mine it worked perfectly fine.

My PS2 is 3yrs old and will not play Killzone. It plays all my other games. Killzone is on a DVD. My other games are Cd's i think...It doesnt say "Disc Read error", it just tries to spin he disc, the screen stays black, then goes back to the menu/browser screen where u have the option of entering the disc or memory card. is this just a dirty lens or is the laser out of alignment to play dvd's. Thing is, it plays DVD movies. GO FIGURE!! plus, i swapped killzone the first time when it didnt work. i thought the disc was faulty so i took it bAck to the store and swapped it 4 another copy, but alas, the 2nd copy also didnt work. Whats going on?? A hearty cyber cheer for the champ who can solve this mystery!!

Does anyone want a funny cheat for The Sims(PS2)?

Unregistered guest
Here's the funny cheat: Light a fire place and then put a heart bed right smack in front of it and then choose relax. Then before anything happens pause the game and go to build. Put a fence next to the bed where your Sim gets out of the bed diagonaly. Somwtimes the fire will just go out but if it's sucessful the bed will burn away and your Sim will run away to another part of the house completly naked. No blur or whatever. I found this out whith my cousin while i was trying to burn him alive. :P

My PS2 would play all disks except for the blue one's. I tried adjusting it, but there still was one blue game it wouldn't play and the disk was fine. While I had it apart, I took a 6" Grinding wheel...no not really... q-tip with alcohol on it and rung out all the extra alcohol. Then I blew air on the laser and whiped it with the wet end of the q-tip and then once with the dry end and then hit it with air again. It has worked ever since. I'm not suggesting that anyone else try it, i'm sure it isn't scientific...but it worked for me.

2. ur disk is dirty/ scratched badly

i suggest maybe a quick cleaning so use this like like the smart person left a while back b kuz it works

and lastly i just fixed my buddies ps2 b kuz he was freaking out like most of u worrying about money instead of trying to do sumthing for himself...so he told me his ps2 made funny noises and wudnt play any of his disks....so i just bought a can of compressed air dropped by and followed the steps above...all better...and can u believe what he told me afta

First off..Harko, STFU. No body cares about graphics, at least they shouldn't. Players should be playing games because they enjoy it, who the hell cares who hates it? And not just Harko, I'm talking to all those damn system fanatics out there. Whether it's X-Box, PS2, or GC; STFU already. If you like it good, if you hate it, who the hell cares? Damn fanboys are so freaking annoying.

there is a rather simple fix that anyone can do, and it is totally non-technical, run out and get a roll of black tape - (electrical tape) then just strategically place four strips around the inner circle all right to left, do not go over the center circle, or any closer than a quarter inch from the outside of the disc, this will add enough weight to stabelize the media, and it will work fine, I have an older PS2 and have over 20 games that I have done this too, all of which are other than silver. ENJOY !!!

the problem is your ps2 old and dieing

if it ant SCPH-39003 that means it not amercain
so its ether jap or europe
it best to have amercan so if you ant means your got a diffenet bios chip so get a dif ps2 or change the chip your self
if you still got problems your ps2 is dieing
i say find one game that works sell your consle if they look to see if it works put that game in
to trick them your get cash and if they phone you up saying the consle ant working say it works great for for your self and say they must have broke it so they cant get there money back

Random Guy, well said. Unfortunately you're dealing with a childish element that hasn't come here to help or even debate; they do not know how.

ok the ps2 has a defect. it has always had it from when it was first released the ir lazer is slowly burning itself out and they normaly last a year thats defect number 1 the second and more comon one is that if you bump it hard or it fall over the lazers focus is nocked off and it looks like thats the problem that most people here is having. all you have to do is open it up and ajust the white gear at the top. depending on the model it will be either one or two gears. I fix ps2's for people all the time with the problems that people is describing here. just remember if it's new you have a warnety and you should use it and if it's about a year old it may be just that the lazer had died. if it's a year of over old and you adjust the gear and it's still not working then the lazer is most likely dead. oh and noone should ever send their ps2 to sony to have it fixed without a warnty. they will charge a little less then it will be to get a new one and all they will do is adjust the gear or pop out the lazer and put in a new one with hardly any work done to it so it would be best to jsut get a new one. the whole disk scanning unit was either desizened by someone or someones thats really stupid or it was purposly done that way. actually there has been a design change to make taking the cover off alot more easier then it was before. oh and one more thing make sure you have the right region. the best thing is that if you are buying a ps2 in a country get games from that same country. thats the easies way to not run into that problem

for Harko I just noticed what was typed there. most of the major games is avaliable on both of them. there is only a little bit of times where that is not so. and overheating is a must more major problem then optical lazer trouble. overheating in most cases is where the electronic circits id burning themselves out and I would guess that the cpu may be running to hot because it's being made to run faster then it can take. if thats to you will be lucky if a xbox lasts a year. basically the ps2 and xbox is jsut about identical in performance with slite differences. you should have waited to brag until the xbox360 and ps3 comes out there will be plenty to brag about on both sides

look for the gta games that may not work it possible u save game with codes cause if u do u screw it up. and if ur ps2 is new and it just dont work with games/etc its just a defected ps2.

this is the main problem most ps2 has is that the ps2 cant read disc...

to fix this u have to take apart and fix ur self or send it back and get it fixed.or get a new one.

to fix the ps2 disc read error ur gona have to change the laser things which u can find out how to do this on some site.

go here to find out how to fix the laser thing or something...with wheel or something....

OK, yes,I'm a blonde who bought her kid a BoomChair 2.0 (stereo and vibration) but I can't figure out how to hook it up to the Sony PS2 we own. I've been to the website (www.BoomChair.com) and it says it should be simple but no diagrams that match the PS2 set up. The PS2 audio/video connector has a multi-pin "female" end and separate red/white audio and a yellow input pin for the back of the TV. When I take the BoomChair 2.0 audio cables (only red/white) and try to hook them up, there's no sound. Any help is appreciated because an expensive Christmas game chair has left me (as usual) wanting to "hook up"...Merry Christmas. Wish Santa had left a cute geek elf behind.

When your Playstation will not read disks, a common problem is with the laser read depth that automatically (in theory) adjusts itself. Diferent types of media require different read depths.

Here is the fix from Playstation tech support:

[quote]
The PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system has an auto-diagnosis feature that automatically adjusts the settings to allow the best possible performance from the media (PlayStation®2 format software and/or DVD movies) you are attempting to use. You may want to try the auto diagnosis feature to update the settings when you experience difficulties playing the above mentioned media. Please note that the auto diagnosis feature will not improve playback quality for the original
PlayStation® format software titles.

==================================
To use the auto diagnosis feature:
==================================
1) You must be in the "main menu" screen of the PlayStation 2 console

2) Highlight "Browser" and press the "triangle button"

3) Select "Console" using the up and down directional buttons and press the "Triangle" button

4) Press the "X" button and highlight "On" using the up and down directional buttons; press the "X" button to confirm

5) Insert a disc. The console automatically starts the diagnosis

6) Press the "Circle" button two times to back out to the Browser Screen; highlight "Browser" and press the "X" button. Once in the Browser, press the "X" button to load the game.

Please note: The diagnosis setting automatically returns to "Off" (default
setting) when you press
the "Reset" button or start playing a PlayStation 2 format software title or DVD movie.

In addition, it is important to maintain your PlayStation 2 console by keeping the vents on the console free of dust. Because dust can accumulate in the vents on both the front and rear panels of the PlayStation 2 console, we recommend that you check the vents from time to time. After turning off your console, and unplugging it from the electrical outlet, you may remove any accumulated dust with the hose attachment of your vacuum cleaner or with a small handheld vacuum.

We also do not recommend the use of any type of lens cleaner. Doing so may actually cause more problems for your PlayStation 2 console. Instead, we only recommend that you clean your PlayStation and PlayStation 2 format software discs/DVD discs using lint-free "CD wipes" found at your local software stores. When cleaning your discs, we recommend starting at the inside circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circle motion, as it may cause scratches on the disc.

Peace Out,

On a lot of the older PS2 consoles the lasers will eventually go out, usually the first indicator that this is happening is that it will not read specific types of games. If the disc you are trying to use is blue or purple and your system is not reading it, I would say it's the laser. In which case you need to just replace the system. You can get a new PS2 for about $100 now.
