Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
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?
