    I have a modded slim ps2 (scph-90004). All the games works perfect it cant play DVD movies. I tried using ARmax(app for ps2) which had a all region dvd player, when I inserted the DVD, it said DVD player not found.
    I tried cleaning the lens too, but no use!!

    Please give a solution for this problem.

I can't get a movie to play on my ps2

The PS2 has a pretty notorious poor history of functioning as a DVD player. Even the smallest of scratches on the disk can keep your movie from playing well.

If there's another option then I suggest you reach out and take it. Currently however, I would unfortunately just state that you are not alone.

Why does my ps2 play games and not dvd movies

It should play dvd's (provided it is the right reigon player for the type of DvD that yopu are trying to play), as well, but if it has stopped playing dvd then the problem may well be the laser, as there are 2 components to ps2 lasers, a dvd laser and a cd laser the dvd laser is much more sensitive and will be the first part of the laser to fail.

You could try cleaning the laser but it is much more likely that the laser will have to be replaced soon.
