Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
My playstation2 console used to play ps2 discs but all of a sudden stopped, now it will only play ps1 discs,my brother also had the same problem with his console. i went out and bought new discs from the store thinking the problem was my games, that still didnt work,could someone please let me know of any possible solutions to this problem or reasons as to why this happens to the consoles.
This is a classic sympton of a worn and/or dirty laser, What mode is the console? Some models are well known for this problem, May require laser clean and service or laser replacement or calibration, It really needs inspection first to assess the problem and find the best solution.

Grim is not right on that one. You can have your PS2 relearn by using the diagnostics feater from browser. Boot it up, press Triangle to get options on version. Press Traingle again to get to diagnostic and press X. Select on. Press X again. Try your PS2 Discs. If not working, open the ps2, gain access to the laser and Clean the lens.If you still have probalems check out www.playstationclinic.com for help.
