They Playstation 2 is notorious for laser calibration issues there is a method http://arstechnica.com/articles/paedia/hardware/ps2.ars shown here that I myself have used and been successful

My PS2 Slim says "please


Form your post I can clearly know that you don't have any problem with your Play Station.


The problem might be with the Digimon world 4 Disc. You should buy a new digimon world 4 DVD orginal or pirated it up to ur choice. if not you can download the game iso file from this link http://www.gamestorrents.com/eng/ps2-game-digimon-world-4-english-english-descargar-torrent-3103.html and write it to a DVD with the help of software like DVD decrypter. Dvd decrypter can b downloaded from the following link http://www.dvddecrypter.org.uk/.

Please insert ps2 format disc?


Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Can't Read DVD Games.


Your laser needs to be adjusted Inside the PS2 there is a white wheel that can adjust the laser up and down to find it's sweet spot for reading all types of disks. It's also possible something is wrong with the laser and it needs to be replaced.

Disc reading error


Open the Case.
Clean the lens with Q-tip and Alcohol. This is only if you have the SCPH-30000 through 5000X models. If you have the Slim Ps2 do not use Alcohol on the lens. Use Glass cleaner instead.
