When playing a game on the ps 2 it freezes when u start to play at higher levels on any game. For example on guitar hero when we're trying to play a song set at medium as the game is loading it freezes. It...


there are a few solutions to this ill list em from least extreme to most extreme

1. Take a can of compressed air and gently blast some air inside of the CD door, there may be some dust on the reader lens.

2. make sure there arent any scratches on your CDs. a damaged CD will either not play at all or freeze up. when checking for scratches, check both the silver/blue/purple side and the side with the image on it. PS2 discs are notoriously fragile and if mistreated will break easily.

3. Take your playstation to someone who would be able to repair it, though it may or may not be costly, depending on how the repairman feels about the system.

4. finally buy yourself a new system this is the most extreme thing you can do about it, since now gamestops sell new PS2s and used PS2s for under $60

MY GRAND THEFT AUTO 4 WONT PLAY IT KEEPS STOPING THE GAME AND TELLING ME 2 CLEAN THE GAME WITH ACLOTH THEN PLAY IT THERE IS KIND OF BIG SCRATCH ON IT BUT ITS NOT THAT BIG SHOULD I JUST BUY ANEW ONE


Hi,
you could buy a new game, but it,s worth trying this disk repair solution first. i,ve been repairing game-music cds/dvds for a couple of years, with 80% sucessful results.
1:) Find an empty jewel Case ( plastic cd holder case ) put the game-disk into the case upside down. ** Underside Facing Up**
2:) Take a soft-cloth ** Yellow Duster Type** and apply a small amount Of T-Cut Or Toothpaste. to the cloth.
3:) holding the disk with one hand, to stop it moving. use your other hand to work the cutting paste into the disk, around the scratched area. using light to medium pressure.
4:) once you,ve polished the area around the scratch, using a clean piece of soft cloth, buff to a polish.
5:) once the scratch has been removed, polish with a light solution of furniture polish, to fill in any surface inperfections.

If your in the UK, i can repair the disk for you.

Game loading


  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. I do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].

PS2 GTA: San Andreas Disk Problems


this shows that your cd is already damaged, the scratches might have hit the critical part. you said that some other cd's of yours have also scratches these are presumably minor scratches. its better if you purchase anew one. a damaged cd with deep scratches can damage the lense of your cd rom if you continously use this it would soon permanently damaged the lens

Disks does not play.....


First thing to try is use a can of compressed air and blow that into the area of the lens from many angles. If that doesn't work you'll have to open up the PS2 and try a more direct version of the former. If not then email me and I will get to work on making a "youtube" video for it.
