Play station 2 slim

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?

I dont know how to delete the corrupt data from my play station 2 memory card can you help me please


  • Turn on your PS2 without a disc in it. This will bring you to a menu that says "Browser" and "System Configuration"
  • Choose Browser.
  • There you will be able to access data on your Memory Cards
  • Please reply if you have any more questions. Good Luck! Please give 4 thumbs up if I helped!

When my daughter turns on her system it goes to a "Browser / System Configuration" screen and we don't know what to do?


Hello,

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!

Regards,
G33k

A silver slim ps2 is unable to play certain games


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 :)

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc


Hi Elvis,

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.

Going to the console browser instead of reading disc


Hi Morquea, 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.
