Open Question

Enter game in PS2, starts but says has no controller inserted.

I enter the game Need for Speed in PS2, it starts running and the title appears in the screen of my tv, then the four small lights appear below in the sreen, as if it wants to start the game, but then I get the error: no control has been inserted, please insert a controller to continue. I blew into the port and control and changed the position of the PS. No result. The game Gran Turismo 4 does work.

SOURCE: PS2 Slim Controller Port 1 Not Working..change out??

Yes this port be changed out on a slim like the fatter PS2 version it is a complicated work and should be done by an expert technician only otherwise the tracks on motherboard will be spoiled.
One thing be sure before changing the port you check it if this port is physically damaged then only you can proceed otherwise you please compare the working voltages on all pins with your port 2 and sort out the fault because sometimes +5v supply missing or any diodes connected on port is short which can be the reason for this fault.

Disc read error


Disc Read Error generally means that the game disk cannot be read by your console.

Reasons for Disc Read Error
1. Disk surface scratched or smudged.
2. Disk surface dirty.
3. Lens surface dirty.

Here is what you can try doing.

1. Check the game disc for any scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.

2. If the PS2 console is lying down, please set the console to on its side or if it's on its side set it to flat position, restart the console and then try game again. Always ensure the PlayStation 2 is in a cool, well ventilated place.

3. Remove and reinsert the Memory card of your PS2, restart the console then try running the game again.

Other troubleshooting that you can try.

Change the Disc speed of the PS2 DVD and then try again.

Start the PS2 with no disc in a drive. Press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Use the up and down buttons on the controller to select "Playstation Driver” and press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Select Disc speed. If it is set to "Fast," select "Standard"; if it is set to "Standard", select "Fast" and press the "X" button on the controller. Press the "O" button on the controller. Insert the game disc and restart the PS2. Try running the game again.


Turn the Diagnosis On for PlayStation2 to auto detect the best settings.

From the Browser and System Configuration menu. Press the triangle button to select Version. Highlight the Console from the list and press the triangle button - this accesses the next menu option. The Diagnosis will be highlighted. Press the X button to access the options available. Highlight "ON" and press the X button to affect the change. Restart the console and try the game again.

If the above steps does do not solve the error then you would probably have to replace the disc.


Note: If you are using the Slim version of PS2 make sure that the console is properly ventilated and that it should always be in the standing position, as the slim version of PS2 no fan or any other cooling unit unlike the normal PS2.

Dvd parental controls


With a DVD disc inserted in your PS2, press the Select button to bring up the on-screen Control Panel. Press the X button to select the Setup icon. Use the directional pad to reach the "Custom Setup" menu, and press the X button. Move to "Parental Control" and select with the X button. A window will appear asking you to enter a four-digit password. Enter your choice of password using the number buttons that appear then enter it again for confirmation. You're now able to set the Parental Control level using the "Region" and "Level" options, and change your password
