Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
PS2 only wants to work as a ps1 won't play dvds or ps2 games.
Your ps2 isn't reading cause your drive is dying. you can get a lil more out of it by opening the ps2 up, (void your warranty if you have one you will yess....) after flipping the top part of the cover to the side (careful the power and reset button have a cable still connected) you will want to remove the screws on the dvd rom, 4 lil tiny screws. then remove the cover. you will see the lens and behind that a White GEAr about the size of quarter. mark the teeth that meet the metal clip on the left hand side of it with a marker. then twist the gear clockwise slowly (click click click click) then you will hear a sound and the laser will drop down. now do 2 to four clicks clockwise and then put the thin cover back on the ps2 and boot it up and try a game out. (please place cover back over dvd rom area for the dvd's fly off and then the laser will melt a hole in your brain.) its' basically readjusting the laser to read the cds. the blue ones are hard really hard to get it to ready but silvers and ps1 are easiest. so if it dosen't read the dvd or cd shut off the system take the thin cover back off and do 2 to 4 more clicks clockwise and repeat until the cd reads.
