Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Not reading disk

Ps2 will play some games, not others. Sometimes it will not read disk on games that have worked in the past. Have cleaned it, cooled it down and seems to help some times. Pretty much hit and miss.

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 won't read disk sometimes


I've helped someone else with a similar problem here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t1300166-playstation_2_console_keeps_freezing

It's not enough to use a disk to clean the laser lens. You have to take the PS2 apart and clean the lens manually. Nicotine, Incense, diffusers, and other smokes and just time itself clouds the lens. Not only that but the part that the disk sits and spins on needs to be cleaned over time as well to assure the disk is in proper alignment and Is not just kinda spinning on the spindle.

In that link i posted above you be led to directions on how to take apart your PS2 and what parts to clean. The instructions I have posted in that tutorial is for the (FAT) PS2 model not SLIMLINE. If you have a slimline model you don't have to take apart anything just open your cover and clean the parts in the video.

Hope that helps,

Had ps1 game resurfaced, no longer works on ps2


Sounds like you need to get your money back ..the resurfaceing can also do more bad than good
But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way

Disc read error


You will ne4ed to clean up the PS2. open it up and clean the laser lens with alcohol on a cotton swab. If it is the Slim Ps2 model you should not use Alcohol. Use A glass Cleaner like windex on the slim. Sometimes the magnet gets week and you need to add some magnetism to help improve the spindle grip on the Game disc. Cut up a refridgerator magnet and place it in the white cap thatt clamps the Game disc in the cd player.

Ps2


all right kiwi you need to run a cleaner disk it means the ones that you use to clean cd players with its problably the laser eye its dirty and its not reading the information on the format disk if that doesn't work wen you turn on your console go to
browser instead of hitting the x button hit the tryangle that will take you to system vertion Information go to playstation driver
press tryangle that will take to disk speed and texture mapping
set them to standard. and if cleaning the laser eye and setting drivers don't work buddy I don't know what to tell you sometimes it pays to open your console and clean it inside once and a wile.

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.
