There are a few solutions to this ill list em from least extreme to most extreme

1. Take a can of compressed air and gently blast some air inside of the CD door, there may be some dust on the reader lens.

2. make sure there arent any scratches on your CDs. a damaged CD will either not play at all or freeze up. when checking for scratches, check both the silver/blue/purple side and the side with the image on it. PS2 discs are notoriously fragile and if mistreated will break easily.

3. Take your playstation to someone who would be able to repair it, though it may or may not be costly, depending on how the repairman feels about the system.

4. finally buy yourself a new system this is the most extreme thing you can do about it, since now gamestops sell new PS2s and used PS2s for under $60

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

My XBox 360 freezes


Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL

Disc Reading Problem


If the problem happens with more than one disk , then it is probably the PS2 lens , that is dirty or is starting to be opaque because of use and age.

Try Katamari on a cd reader, and guitar hereo on some friend's PS, if they work, then the PS is starting to get old and having lens problem.

All you can do is blowing asome canned air on PS lens and trying to use a cleaning DVD inside PS. Often this does not work.

The guitar hero world tour does not play on my playstatin 2


We had the same problem with Guitar Hero World Tour for PS2. We have an older fat PS2 that would play all of our other games but this one. I tried changing the settings to fast/smooth, changed the diagnostics, still didn't work. Finally, I took The PS2 apart, blew out the dust,cleaned the laser lens with a qtip and rubbing alcohol, dried it gently with a dry q-tip, and the game works!!
