My ps2 won't play games it just goes to the settings screen and when to go to browser it says disk could no be read

if the ps2 start and goes to the browser very fast then it is browser ic problem, you have to change it

if it says disck could not be read , then it can be disk problem or the lens

just blow the air into lens so that any dirt is on the lens will be gone or wipe it with soft cloth slightly

thank you

New ps1 mem card wont formaton ps2...

I have read that some manufacture PS1 memory cards will not work properly on the PS2. I would suggest trying another PS2 to see if it's a problem with your specific PS2. If the memory card doesn't pop up on the browser screen of another PS2, it could be defective or incompatible. If it does work on another PS2, it could be something weird going on with your memory card slot on your PS2.

Playstation 2 stopped working

It sounds like the disk reader could be damaged. PS2 is an old console so I think it is just dying. You could try this. How to Fix PS2 Disk Read Errors

It wont work

try and change the settings on your ps2
on the screen that says browser and system configuration press triangle.this will take you to another screen. while Playstation Driver is highlited press triangle again. this will take you to a screen that will allow you to adjust the way in which your ps2 reads discs that are inserted. try changing the settings to fast nd smooth
also some times you just have to insert the game over and over again until it works. its kinda like breaking in a new pair of shoes

Disc read error

Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.

My new ps2 game wont work

if your ps2 is old, it may not take certain disks e.g. purple backed disks, dvds and a disc read error problem will appear in the browser
