Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

My brother's Ps2 has stopped reading all his PS2 games

My brother's PS2 has stopped reading all of his games. We figured that it must have something to do with the lens but we're not sure how to get to the lens. We have cleaning solution, and tried opening the PS2 but we can't get to where we needed to go. After we did that we put it all back together. We plugged it back in but is still not reading any games. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

First off, NEVER TOUCH THE LENS! Second, it's been played burnt discs too much and now you have to get another one.

Ps2 repairs


is it all game disks or just one ? It may be something as simple as a greasey finger print on the disk or a scratch that stops your console from reading a disk

My ps2 has no color when im play games but i can watch DVD's with no problems


Hi, these are reasons or problems that can affect ps2 color.

Its the model games your downloading. the unloaded didn't upload it right.
The problem would have to be your PS2. When you modded it, the PS2 must have had something changed in it.
That thing that you changed may not allow it to read the color on certain PS2 games. You either have to buy a new PS2, or figure out what you did wrong when you modded it.

its something with the chip u used... i did the same thing and replaced it and im working fine now... u should think about getting magic swap... requires no modding to play station and i hear from people that it works well

The thing in the back that hooks up to the back of the tv or cable connection needs to be changed

This may sound stupid and completely obvious, but mine occasionally play without color as well. Try jiggling the RGB cable from the back of the console.

because its the way they made them the only difference is the type of film they use other tha that game play is still the same

go to game stop or a game shop 4 them to fix or it might be that your psp had been dropped or something that happened to it .

Hope it helps.

Why dose my ps2 only read ps1 games


Since PS1 Games Have Less Compaction Than PS2 Games It Needs Full Use Of The Laser Sensor To Play The PS2 Game. If Its Dirty Open Up The PS2 And Clean The Laser Sensor With Rubbing Alcohol And A Cotton Swab. It May Also Be The Fact That You Knocked Something Loose And The PS2 Cant Run At Full Capacity. If The 2nd Thing Happened You Must Take It To Game Stop,Eb Games, Or Any Electronics Store And Have Them Fix It. Look For A Video On Youtube That Gives Details On How To Clean The Sensor.

Make sure that your laser eye inside the ps2 isn't dusty or anything,unless your ps2 is still under warranty(which I doubt)and you want it to stay that way.
