Hi, I don`t know how to explain but I`ll try. My daughters ps2 will only bring up browser when turned on. The silver part inside which I presume houses the laser for some reason appears to be pulled towards the centre of the disc when game inserted and turned on. After looking at my ps2 I presume this part of the machine should stay in one place so why is this part on my daughters ps2 moving?

Is it stuck at this screen? If so, try shutting down the PS2, then remove the power cord for 5 minutes. Plug the power cord back in and turn the system on.
Also, if the PS2 is having trouble reading the disk it will do this. You can try another disk because maybe the one you are using is scratched up. The system may have to much dust and dirt inside causing disk read problems. Try a can of compressed air and see if you can blow some of the dust out from inside the disk drive!
Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)
Dear Sir!You should increase the disc speed.Follow these steps to increase the disc speed:
Step 1>>Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc into it.
Step 2>>Wait for the main menu [Containing Browser and System Configuration ].
Step 3>>Press Triangle Button to enter Version Information menu.
Step 4>>Move the cursor to Play Station Driver and Press Triangle to enter Play Station Driver menu.
Step 5>>At PlayStation Driver screen, Press x at Disc Speed and set it to Fast.
Step 6>>Enter game disc and enjoy.
Hope that solves your problem.Good Luck!
Hi i need more info when you put the game in and close draw does it load the game or does it just goto browser like their is no game in if this is the case then the only thing you can try is buying a lense cleaner and run this through your ps2 if this dont solve your problem then the chances are you will need the laser replacing you can get these off well known auction site but the problem is you will need the info on how to calibrate the new laser. Let me know what actually happens then i can assist you further
The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
I believe you have the PS2 Slim model. This model has a laser with plastic housing and when it tries to read a disc for along time like hours, the lens housing begins to melt. You may be experiencing this and the process of melting is slow, so no way of knowing what wil happen since the laser adjusts itself to focus in on the media. One day or one disc might work, and another wont. I normally see Blue colored PS2 discs work and silver colored disc not work. This is a tell tale signof melting. Sony did not buiuld the slim as tough as the previous fat Versions. This helps them save money on Shipping and raw metarial costs. When the Laser automatically adjusts focus all day, it gets extremely hot and melts. You need a new laser. I can solve your problem there by replacing the laser for you for $32 plus shipping. contact me through www.playstatiopnclinic.com.
