Unable to read new games but can read old, used games???

I have a playstation 2 silver slimline console and i went to play god of war 2 (after waiting 27hrs in a blackout) and it says unable to read disc, yet when i put in older and scratched ps2 games they work perfectly!!!! i took the Disc to a mates place who has the older style chunky black console and it works!! i tried other games and they work, i tried an old DVD, that works but when i put in a BRAND NEW DVD it didnt work either, i received the same message unable to read disc. i changed the speed of the disc (spin thingy) to smooth and fast but to no avail. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!! i dont understand why it works on used games but not new ones. wouldnt it be the other way around??????? THANK YOU AMBER (central coast, Australia)

Things like this are usually caused by overlooked manufacturing discrepancies. It may be best to contact Sony with your system's model info, serial number, and date of manufacture. They may be able to help you under warranty. Greg Holiday

SOURCE: Playstation2 not working properly

Hi there. Are the older games you're trying to play CD games ? They might be :) The laser lens in such consoles can be fried on the dvd part, but still read CD's. Have you tried, to read a DVD Movie in it ? I bet it doesn't work either. The slimlines are infamous for laser burnout, and god they're quick to burn. You can try to clean your laser lens with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol, but i'd say you're already out of luck. The optical lens is quite easy to replace in those units. They can be found on ebay and on various websites for 20$, and if you can play a bit with a phillips screwdriver, chances you'll be able to replace it yourself with a bit of patience are good enough. If you need additional help just ask, hope that helps ! cheebster.

I bought a used slimline ps2; and it plays some games but not other; it won't play two brand new games i bout metal gear solid 2 and god of war... there are no scratches on them whatsoever, and it says...


This means the laser of the playstation 2 has problems, and is going bad. This is very common with playstation 2's. If possible you will need to return it to whomever / wherever you purchased the unit. If you bought it on ebay you can file a paypal claim stating the item is defective. Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs if possible, it would help me a great deal. I would be forever grateful!

A silver slim ps2 is unable to play certain games


Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)

God of war 2 used to work on my Ps2 (sliver slim one) but now it doesnt work any more?


Try some of your other games and see if any of them work. If you can't get any of the games to work then that means the laser is bad in the disc drive.

If only God of War 2 isn't working then that means there is something wrong with the disc and you'll have to try another God of War 2 disc.

Play staion 2 reads all games but wont read god of war 1 and 2


Best bet is to try a laser lens cleaner and seeing if that helps. I know it sounds silly that it might be dust on the lens when only THOSE games don't work, but stranger things have happened.

Sony playstation2 slimline,problem withthe game ''godofwar''


Sounds like a defect in the disc. Possibly a scratch or blemish.
If your other games dont hiccup it's most likely the "god of war" disc
