    My ps2 won't read god of war games, DVDs, Audios. it will play all other games. Help!

  • godofwarprob Jan 22, 2009

    My PS2 will NOT read the God of War games, one or two. It reads all other games, movies, audio CDs, and we've tried everything. Does anyone have any ideas? We even went out and bought new God of War games and they didn't work. What gives?

OK, slimline ps2 means nothing. heres exactly what you do (cause i just had to do it). find a cloth that will not leave fibers behind, put some rubbing alcohol on it, and clean your laser. once you do that, let it dry for about 30 secs, and then pop in your god of war game. it will read it perfectly. hope this helps.

It should work,but don't be surprised if bugs from games and incompatibility happens.There's always a risk.

American disc won`t play on my ps2 console in the uk all i get is please insert disc


if your ps2 is not a modded one sorry to tell you but yours is a pal ps2 (means you live somewhere in asia europe)so there is some difference i the american ps2 disc(ntsc) and pal ps2 disc both are designed to play in specific consoles so if you bought they console from ntsc territory(japan ,north america) it should work for sure but sometimes in japan and all they sell pals also but there is still chance try returning the cd to the shop and buy a pal disc or you can mod your ps2 from ps2 technicians (they are all around the world,every console shop has one) and then you can play american disc this is the only chance it will only take a small 25 bucks from you just mod it and u can play games u burned from your computer and also any pal ,ntsc territory original discs also

Japanese game wont play on ps2 slimline!


if its in a region lock, its impossible to be played on a American PS2, if your PS2 is modded it will read any region locked discs, the only possible solution is to buy a Japanese Version PS2

I bought japanese version of PS3, runs all japanese games but all PS2 UK games are not recognize. Can you advice please?


Hi there

If you buy a gaming console from one country and you buy a game from a different country, the game will not work because the file format is different to what the console supports. i.e You buy a Playstation 3 in America and you buy Hitman in the UK, they will not work with each other. If the game is copied or damaged it will also say "File Format Not Supported" or "Incorrect Region Code".

The only way to fix this problem is if you buy games from the country that the console was bought from or you can also purchase a code that will unlock certain regions so your console should play most games.

If this solution helped you, please rate it as FixYa!

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day.

Kind regards

Slimline ps2


This is the most common problem with any ps2 the only thing you can try is cleaning the laser lense its best to use an actual lense cleaner in the form of a disk.
As it only reads compact disks this does mean your laser is on the way out but try cleaning lense and try again but you might find the problem remains.
The problem with you ps2 the slim one is that you cant adjust the laser the older bigger ps2 had a dial on the back of the laser tray that you could turn and adjust the height of the laser doing this got a couple more months usage out of the ps but the slimer one doesnt have this dial as they used newer lasers that couldnt be adjusted in anyway.
If cleaning doesnt make the ps2 any better then you need to replace the laser but the problem you have with this is if you buy a new laser its easy enough to fit yourself but buying a new laser means its going to need calibrating this isnt something you can do yourself unless you have an osciloscope to use on the board at test points these cost about $1000 to buy and if you get someone else to fit and calibrate they will charge more than the price of a new ps2 so its not financially worth doing.
The cheapest option is buying a second hand slimline ps2 that dont work but the laser is fine then you could transfer the laser without calibrating it but you need to be carefull and make sure the lasers are the same else it wont work at all.
Then the problem you will find is you do the repair then say 2 months down the line you get another problem this costing more money again.
What i would do but its upto you is just buy new ps2 knowing its working and is going to last a while the new ones now have better lasers and seem to last for ages ive had mine for years now and had no problem.
But i have got a slimline ps2 that dont work with same problem but what ill do is keep checking auction sites untill i can pick up cheap ps2 that dont work and replace any parts i need you can usually by damaged ps2 for about £10 including delivery but i repair them and sell them to make a bit of money but as you only want maybe one then theirs a risk involved not knowing if its going to work after the repair i suggest buy new one.
Sorry ive gone on a bit but thought it best if i give you all the info ok

My slimline ps2 switch is jammed


if you have warrenty by all means get it repaired , but if not go onto ebay buy the switch unit and Turn off the ps2 while on to discharge it , make sure you touch your hand on a metal object every 15min open up the ps2 and on the right or left should be the switch and you pull on the ribbon VERY LIGHTLY and it should pop out (cable)and you should be able to take out the switch and then replace switch and connect it .Close the console and see if it works

Ps2 region disk


Hi Helena,

The NTSC , I think NTSC stands for National Trade Security Commission, either way they implemented Region locks. You need to get on Ebay and buy you a PS2 that is NTSC-PAL to play your UK Games. The one you bought here in America is a NTSC-U/C. Same thing goes for all DVD players in the world.
