Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

3 Answers

We have just bought a second-hand PS2, the big console. We played games the past few days, then today I was playing and it just froze up. Now when I put in a disc it says disk read error after a few seconds. How can we fix this?

    It is not the lens that is the problem. We have tried the instructions given and followed them. Now the tray wil not close.

Had the same issue with mine, hadn't used it in over a year and dust and grime collected on the laser head. I tried a cleaning disc to no avail, finally had to open the unit and use alcohol soaked q-tips, delicately but repeatidly to remove the grime off the reader head.

Don't suggest doing this if you are not mechanically inclined.

My unit has worked flawlessly for months since...

Can I play PS2 games on my brand new PS3? I bought the 120 GB today, Is there another model I should exchange for if this is going to be a problem. The owners manual refered me to this website.


Hi,

The 120GB console does not have backward compatibility with PS2 games unfortunately. For a full explanation on what PS3 consoles are able to play PS2 games, please view this FixYa Tip.

it's dirty. that's all there is too it. your whole system is dirty if you haven't cleaned it. try cleaning it with spray-air or whatever you have in your stores. and if you've kept cleaning it try cleaning the laser.

Guitar Hero Metallica Wont play on my Ps2


okay, try this: 1. Start up PS2 with no disc 2. select 'Browser', press triangle. 3. select 'Console', press triangle. 4. select 'Diagnostics', press X, select 'ON'. 5. press 'O' to back out of this menu. 6. select 'Playstation Drive', press triangle. 7. select 'Disc Speed', press X, select 'FAST'. 8. press 'O' to back out of menu. 9. turn off PS2. 10. insert disc. The Diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I got this "FIX" from someone who had the same problem. Hope this helps :D

It sounds like the disk reader could be damaged. PS2 is an old console so I think it is just dying. You could try this. How to Fix PS2 Disk Read Errors

Japanese game wont play on ps2 slimline!


if its in a region lock, its impossible to be played on a American PS2, if your PS2 is modded it will read any region locked discs, the only possible solution is to buy a Japanese Version PS2
