Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Won't load or play disc or dvd

I load a disc into my PS2, and it goes through the motions. It then goes to the browser / system configuration window, and whatever I try will not move past this. Ive tried different games, loading dvd's and the only message it displays is "reading disc". Nothing happens - I even tried leaving it for an hour or so - nothing! Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I've been a VERY responsible user of my PS2 Slim for 2 years (cleaning it at every sight of the smallest speck of dust, no knocking it, no abusing it in anyway, etc.). Earlier in the afternoon, I was happily enjoying Resident Evil 4. Later that same night, any game I put in will just take me to the Browser/Sys. Config. page. Even when I insert a game at the Browser screen, the "Reading Disc" message appears for 2-3 seconds, disappears, and that's it. What could have happened in those few hours? It was left in an air-conditioned room. Could low temperatures cause this?

It's a well known fact PS2's had a cheap lazer fitted to them, that's why when it gets chiped to play copy games, not long after it starts playing up. The lazer may just need aligning, purchase a cd/dvd cleaning cd rom as these can check audio, lazer alignment and clean the lens.

When disc is put in system goes to "browser/ sys


Depending on how long its been since you ran a cd lens cleaner.

The insides of your PS2 are just dirty.

You can pick up a disk cleaner for cd/dvd lenses at walmart or target cheaply.

Run it several times, and you will be surprised at how much better the PS2 reads disks.

Not recognizing disk


My PS2 always does that now. Just make sure it's reading the disc in the System Browser, and it'll play fine.

Disc doesnt spin, ps2 slim


Does this problem apply to ALL of your discs? If not, then first, when putting your discs in the tray, be sure that ALL of the three PINS on the tray that holds the disc are locked in place, meaning they should all be sticking out on the hole of your DVD. This happened to me a lot...heheh...then, if this problem apply to all of your disc, There probably is a problem with the lens of your PS2...either slim or the fat one...then the only solution is to have your lens replaced...sorry, but i don't know how much it cost now...
