Question about Konami Dance Dance Revolution SuperNOVA 2

Ddr Supernova goes straight to FAILED

All controls work fine (selecting level, selecting music, selecting # of players) but when the stage starts it goes directly to FAILED before the first arrow hits.

    I have moved the dance pad to another setup (we have 10 setups) and it works fine. The problem seems to be in the system (PS2) or the CD itself. Any ideas there?

    we are actually a school and the DDR games are the only games we have for our PS2's. I will have a student bring me another to see if it is the PS2. thank you so much!

It seems your start button might be stuck: the start button acts as a "ditch game" button in home games: hold it for about 5 seconds and then the failed screen will show.

I would suggest purchasing another dance pad, or trying to see if you can, by pressing the area gently "unstick" the start button area.

    Ok, considering it works on other setups, I would take a look at any other games you can use that may have you hold down start for something: I cannot think of any games offhand, but I am sure there are some of them.

    I really doubt it is the disk, becuase that would be one VERY specific code error, something that a disk mistake usually could not re-create: also something I have never heard of beyond a stuck pad (which seems to NOT be the case here) So I am pretty sure it is something in the PS2 in question: IIRC DDR games will "flush" the input before the gameplay screen starts up, thus making it seem any stuck button has been pressed again, which would cause the "go to fail" screen without you actually noticing problems in any other screens or games.

    This, of course, presumes you can press start and get normal functionality from a start button on that system. >_>

    No problem. Please do let me know the results!

    It is nice to see the games in use in schools. :)

My PS2 wont allow me to watch movies about level 2. its getting to the point that i cant watch ice age. i tried 7444 but it didnt work. i bought it from Gamestop used and they said that they didnt know of...

Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:
1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
2. When the screen asks for the code, press and hold the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.
