My ps2 scph-3001 will not play new games

I have had one game in my console for about 5 years. It will play my old game, but not new ones. My son got some new games for christmas, but when we put the games in the console they will not play the new game. What do I do to play these new games?

    Since the game was not removed in 5 years, it has probably warped the disc tray and spinner. Since the game has been warped with it, it will still register it as a playstation disc.

I had to change the browser settings. If I turned the diagnosis on and up the disc speed it played the games. Every time I put in a new game I had to go through the changes. It did not work every time, I had to be patient.

Sony playstation model no.scph- 39001 wont run browser


There are no browser on playstation 2, for an online play you need a network adaptor or slimline ps2. Still when i checked for example killzone 1 multiplayer like 5 years ago one lonely person was playing so it's not worth the cost and trouble.

PS2 Won't read 1 game-game works on other PS2's


1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

2. IF THE LASER CLEANING DON'T WORK ON YOUR PS2 SYSTEM PERFORMANCE THEN TRY ADJUSTING THE LASER VOTAGE.

3. IF THE LASER VOTAGE DON'T WORK YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE LASER $50-75 CALL FELTON (870) 733-1375 OR EMAIL ME IWHYOU@YAHOO.COM

Have a ps2 scph-30001 and it will not play new games? It will play a 5 year old game.


If it will play multiple other games, then the new game is defective. If not, your system will need a cleaning.

You're stuck not being able to play, you need to get the slim PS2's because they reconverted the discs for a new disc encoding.
