Question about Video Game Consoles

1 Answer

Son's Playstation 2 can't seem to read disks alot of the time, but not all of the time. It's been hit or miss over the last several months, but now it's alot more often. Tried the games on a different console, and they worked fine, so I know it's something to do with the console itself. Any ideas?

It could be the laser, try cleaning the laser with a laser cleaning disk, if this does not help then it may be that the laser needs replacing.

Not reading disk


Your laser need to be adjusted or calibrate.If you have a ps2 old model is a common issue.Look around on youtube for some tutorial and if the adjusting will not work you need a new laser.Slimline Machine can not be adjusted but need new laser

Ps2 ver 4 unit will not work unless I lean it on two cases


The fatboy systems have 2 spindles that hold your disk in place so that the laser can read it. If you have a fatboy than the problem is probably one of the spindles is off balance which will make your disk spin off balance.
The slimlines have 3 balls that you click the disk into it. If you have a slimline then you probably have a ball loose. If it is the newer slimline it isnt a ball but a small plastic piece.
If you are savvy with fixing things then you could find the replacement pieces on ebay. If not you will need to trade in or buy a new system.

Playstation won't read game disks


What you probably have is a disc read error, if you don't want to get a new system first you can always open it and repair yourself but that voids the warranty but is voided after the 30th day, I have tried it a few times in the past and it works but is time consuming and if your not careful you can break it beyond use. But if you're brave read this article.

Disk read errors


I have the same model, What could be going wrong is your Power Callibration for the Laser might be off (Look on Youtube for Repairs on how to fix this) The site is : www.youtube.com Search "PS2 Repairs" :)

PS2 will not play DVD


Make sure the disk is compatible and not damaged.Try playing another disk and see what happens if you still do not get anything you may want to consider a xbox or 360 with remote control for dvds. Also check to see if ps2 has a remote for playing dvd disc. never worry!!
