Re: ps2

If you take the ps2 apart there is a unit which can come out that the controlers and memeory cards hook up to. Well this comes out once seperated from the ribbon and is replacable. I found this out by calling Sony and ordering the part. Call Sony helpline and be persistant. It is expensive and would have been cheaper to have it done proffessionaly, or get a used one...late

not sure but we have an older model ps2 about 8 years old and they said at store these new games have too much info for older ones to read. it sucks but i guess u could call sony and complain we just bought new ps2 for 99 dollars we have too many games and controllers to get new system. beside they'll probably come out with new system soon and that will be the latest thing.

I have a playstation2 console that will not recognize my gameshark2 disc as a ps2 disc can someone help the gameshark disc is formatted for ps2

i was having a similar problem with a brand new v.2.2 gameshark(blue bottom).
Then i decided to stand m system vertically instead of horizontally and it's been working fine since i put it vertically.

I also try to reset your ps2 with the gs2 disk still in the tray a couple of times and see what happens.....

and does all of your GS2 disk got scratches?

and by the ways, many ps2 version, like version 4 with the R after or version 5 and up will need GS2 version 1.9A / 1.9B / 1.9C / 1.9D or 2.0 and above to be booting with those ps2 version....

but i know GS2 version 2.1 will work with every new ps2 version.....

Guitar Hero World Tour PS2

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 wont read discs and asks for format disc

I can guess that the games you are trying to play have a Blue underneath and not silver. This was a big problem with my sons disks too using the older version of the ps2. We managed to mess about with some of the settings and changed the rgb setting to the other option (can't remember what that was now...sorry) and got some of them to work, but not for long. When the new games come out now they expect you to have the slimline ps2 and unfortunalty won't work on the older model. So to fix this problem I just bought a new one.

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.

Vibration malfuction

The controller will still function as normal,
But inside there is a BENT / CROOKED / weighted, spinning mechanism in one of the protruding grips... that often straightens or gets stuck.

The only way to fix it is to take it apart - EASY!
Putting it back together is - NOT!

firstly, spray the pins with a contact cleaner.

No AUX button on TV and lost orignal remote

Try hooking up PS2 as instructed and turn on. Then check all channels to find which one is receiving the signal. I had to do the same thing with an older RCA.
