Sometimes is can read ps2 cds... sometimetimes it cant and can only read ps1 cds? wat is the problem of my console??? help plssss.....

PS2 CDs are in fact DVDs, whereas PS1 CD are CDs. The DVD reading part of your laser unit is failing. You need to replace the laser unit. This is not necessarily an easy process as you may also need to tweak the positioning of the laser as well.

My psp will not play and movies or play games screen is dark

have you tried adjusting the brightness of the screen on your psp by using the display button to toggle if it is dark or light? if so the problem is either coming from your lens or the cds you are trying to play.
playstation console usually have regional codes that determines the kind of cds they play. for example a region 2 psp might not play a region 1 cd and so on. what you do is to check the region of your psp by reading through the manual and you would see the regional cds it accepts.
also make sure the cds are in good condition as that could also affect the game. if all the above refuses to work, it could be that you need a software update which you can do by going through your manual too. if all refuses, your lens is probably bad and needs replacement.
hope this helped you? please rate

My playstation 3 stopped playing playstation 3 and playstation 1 games. It will only play dvd's.

Your blu ray drive is shot. The drive motor has to operate much faster to read a game then it does a regular DVD. Eventually your PS3 wont play DVDs but will play CDs.. same reason.. then nothing.
I would consider replacing now. Ebay is a good place actually to buy good blu ray drives for cheap. if your not under warranty I could get you a guide on how to do it, or you could send it to me and I could do it for you. Either way. let me know

My ps2 lence is not working

You can open the door and blow inside a few times real hard to see if that works.
Or you can unscrew the top cover, (there are little slits on bottom for screwdriver) then clean the laser lens eye with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.

If cleaning doesn't help, then the laser lens circuit will likely need to be replaced.
