Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

New game won't play.

I own a slim ps2 and my new copy of god of war 2 won't play.It says reading disc in browser but the disc won't even spin and it makes this clicking sound,the game never comes up.This is my 3rd copy of the game (god of war 2)and all 3 copys did the same thing.I'm talking about brand new games fresh out of the box,no scrathes or anything.All my other ps2 games,cd's,and dvd's work just fine and some of them even have a few scratches but I have no problem playing them.Why is this one game not working?What can I do to fix this problem?Any help would be very appreciated.

The problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk

I had the same problem. I called the support line at sony, and they said that my system was unable to read the disk because the disk is a dual layered disk (DVD ROM). They told told me to send the system in for repairs ($45) and that it would take 5-6 days.

I'm having the same issue. I was told by people at the game store that this is a known issue with some of the PS2's (old and new style) not being able to play the gold discs. (god of war I GH, god of war II, gt4, and others). I received the same advice to call Sony. It's out of warranty and for $45 (per above) I'd rather fix it myself. Any ideas? Will the white gear on the bigbox models fix the slimlines too?

My ps2 slim wont read god of war II disc but it reads all my other games just fine so please i need a solution


God of War II being one of the few Dual-Layer discs on the PS2, it is possible that your problem originates from your PS2 lens being unable to read it correctly. The PS2 Slim is supposed to be able to read Dual-Layer, thus you should try cleaning your lens, it may be dirty, leading to this kind of error while still able to read Single-Layer discs.

A silver slim ps2 is unable to play certain games


Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)

Games like God of War 2, Grand Turismo 4 etc take time to load and some times these games are not loaded by consoles with weak lenses or dirty lens.You should consider cleaning your lens.Cleaning lens might solve your problem plus here is a trick for you to play such heavy games(Although its about playing DVDs on PS2 but you can play your game by following this tip the same way.)

Your ps2 needs to be fixed, gow 1 and 2 are dual layered discs and alot of ps2 originals and slims have trouble playing it, trying calling sony and they can usually fix it for about $45, the laser in your ps2 is worn.  Hope this helps :)

It wont work


try and change the settings on your ps2
on the screen that says browser and system configuration press triangle.this will take you to another screen. while Playstation Driver is highlited press triangle again. this will take you to a screen that will allow you to adjust the way in which your ps2 reads discs that are inserted. try changing the settings to fast nd smooth
also some times you just have to insert the game over and over again until it works. its kinda like breaking in a new pair of shoes
