PS2 game freezes

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.

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.

DON'T FORGET TO RATE SOLUTION

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

How do I connect my dance dance revolution II pad to the new wii console that does not have the gamecube expansion?


The newer Wii console does not support Gamcube games. That's why it was probably cheaper.

Just bought an led tv .my wii was fine with tube tv now its controls are delayed.can it be fixed


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.

A usb dance pad does not work with a ddr game on ps2 slim, is there a way to make the dance pad work with this game?


The dance pad is just a big flat controller. If it doesn't work, there is probably an issue with the dance pad, not the system.

How to play ps2 games on ps3


Ok well here is the "Skinny" 1). 20GB has no chrome trim, no memory card reader and no wi-fi. Not manufactured anymore. Has the best backwards compatibility with PS2 games due to Emotion Engine (PS2's CPU) and Graphics Synthesizer (PS2's GPU) installed.
2). NTSC 60GB has the same backwards compatibility as 20GB version, also has memory card reader and wi-fi. Has a chrome trim.
3). 80GB - extended memory, but reduced backwards compatibility with PS2 games, it has only Graphics Synthesizer (PS2's GPU). Around 80% of PS2 games can be played. Available only in NTSC regions.
4). 40GB - can't play PS2 games at all (all PS2 chips were removed), has 2 USBs instead of 4, no memory card reader, has wi-fi. Avalable in black and white colors. White is on sale only in Japan. Uses 65nm technology (lower power consumption). Improved cooling system. It's the latest version. 40GB doesn't support SACD.
5). PAL 60GB - reduced backwards compatibility with PS2 games. it has only Graphics Synthesizer (PS2's GPU). Around 80% of PS2 games can be played.
Wi-fi included in all models, except 20GB.
