How to get Rock Band to work no the ps2


Hi! Here are the tips to get Rock Band work on the ps2: Clean the disc well. Run another disc in the PS2 for about 5 minutes, then try the Rock Band disc. Plug in a standard controller, navigate to the browser screen, and if the PS2 reads the disc, simply select it with the controller. Insert a copy of Rock Band Track Pack (PS2) and let it run until it gets to the Harmonix screen. Quickly switch this disc for the Rock Band disc, and reset the console. Insert the disc so that the "K" in Rock Band on is pointed at roughly 6 O'clock. If the disc isn't read, then open your PS2 and rotate the disc one hour to the right. Repeat this until it is working or until it is back at 6 O'clock. Be careful with your Rock Band disc as some of them barely work to start with, and you don't want to damage it more. Save your receipt because if it doesn't work at all you will want to return it. Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee

How do u make ur rock band 1 and 2 disk read again on slim ps2


Your Laser is starting to go. Clean the discs, resurface them if they are really scratched, and try blowing some compressed air in and around the laser.

Don't blow the air directly on the laser lens though, it could cause more damage.

if those don't work, you can try boosting the power to the laser (voids your warranty) or get the laser replaced.

If you have old ps2(fat one) or some of the older slim models they are unable to read the new dual layer discs like GHWT. You can send your ps2 back to sony to reformat it to be able to read these new discs for about $50. There is currently a class action lawsuit against sony and activision for not being upfront about this problem.

PS2 rock band disk


Ok, I was having the same problem. You need to take your playstation apart and clean the laser with some alcohol. Only use alcohol as it dries faster and clear. Might as well clean the rest of the inside as well. you will be surprised at the dust it collects. After I done this my works fine.
