My PS2 will play the games for a little then they will freeze.
Okay i have a PS2 SCPH-75001--it is a thin PS2. Like earlier in October it would play the game sjust fine until like a week or two ago it wouldn't play the games fully. I would put the game in, it would load up, go pass the Playstation 2 logo popping up, then it would get to the loading screen and then it would freeze. I've tried Grand Theft Auto San Anderas, Spider-Man, Midnight Club Three Dub Edition Remix, the newest racing game, Tekken 5, and Tekken Tag Tornament. I even had tried two DVD cleaners that can work in the PS2 but they won't show up on the screen. I bought a remote for the PS2 to see if i could navigate through the DVD cleaning process but it wouldn't work. Anybody with a clear answer please help me out with this becuase the PS2 isn't even mines, im borrowing it.

Try using a q-tip with rubbing alcohol to clean the lens of the laser.the lens is exposed on the slim versions.just dip the q-tip in the alcohol and rub the lens firmly in a circular motion.use the dry side of the q-tip to dry the lens

make shaw its not a ps3 game, not trying to be patronizing but ive had 3 people do that brought ps3 games and try to put them in ps2, its true sony are rip off merchants, my advise is not to get a wii ether go for a xbox 360, he will love you for ever. the download content alone you can get for rock band1/2 and guitar hero world tour is worth it
your lense is more than likely defragmented jacob and you should never take any system apart okay so what you wanna do is if your warrenty is still in effect dont tell sony you took it apart just send it in for a refurbisment if it isnt you need to look around online for a ps2 slim lense okay
There were two versions of the multi-tap made; one for the original fat
PS2 and a smaller version made for the slim. The two versions are
incompatible with the other PS2. If you have the original multi-tap
connected to the slim, it should throw out the 'controller
disconnected' message when you boot up. The slim version of the
multi-tap should have a sticker on the bottom saying 'only works with
models SCPH-70000, SCPH-75001, SCPH-75002'.
Other than the sports games, I don't recall any titles that allow more than two players anyway.
To all you guys having this problem with PS2 - I bought World Tour for my brother and put it in this morning. It worked the 1st time we put it on, but we restarted the game because both guitars weren't connected, and it would NOT work after that (we have an old fat PS2 by the way). After reading online, I found out this disc is a Dual Layered DVD, and can cause problems reading it
Here's what I did to fix it - I took out all 8 screws on the bottom of the PS2, popped the case off, and then took out the 2 tiny screws for the DVD drive. After taking that case off, you can see the laser lens. All I did was clean it with an alcohol-soaked Q-tip, then buffed it clean, and after turning the game back on - it works fine! We're so pumped over here, and to anyone else having the problem, I bet this will fix it! Good luck!
To the best of my Troubleshooting knowledge on the Slim, this sounds like a Temperature problem. Do not lay the Slim on the carpet when playing and try not to keep it in sunlight. It will last you much longer to shut it off when not using it. Let it cool off and try it again.
If dust is the culprit, you will need to disassemble the Slim and clean it out, mainly the fan. The Slims fan is very succeptable to dust accumulation.
