I bought a Dance Dance Revolution game with pad for PS2. It loads ok, but the graphics are weird, instead of having clouds as a background, it has multicolor squares and the game freezes. I exchanged for a new one and do the same. I used a DVD disc cleaner, but did not work. The does not freeze in the same spot, so I do not know what happen.

Re: PS2 game freezes
It is definately the Eye of the PS2 Console. The part that reads the disks is called the eye. After having a system for a long time, the eye wares down. It probably needs to be replaced or repaired. I would call Sony for assistance.

The lag comes fr0m the digital picture processing.
Most televisions have a video game mode which can adjust the delay in rendering video from games. See if your television has a video game mode.
If not, a number of games that depends heavily on timing have a "Calibrate" mode to adjust to the delay on the TV. This is most common in rhythm games like Rock Band or Dance Dance Revolution. Look for the calibrate mode.
You can Google "Wii lag " for more info.
