Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

PS2 won't work at all

Okay, so here's my problem.  I have owned my PS2, the fat one for a couple of years now.  It worked completely fine until tonight when I wanted to play Ghost Recon:  Advanced Warfighter online.
I turned my PS2 on and placed the disc in but it only showed me to that beginning screen but not to the main PS2 menu.  The fan was spinning fine and I own the special hard drive for it but I see no light come from the bottom of the PS2 to know that the hard drive is actually doing something.  All I hear is a fan going with no sound whatsoever.  The disc won't spin, I see no light from the laser and there is no sound coming form the TV when the PS2 is on.
Is my PS2 completely dead?

PS2 has a special laser that reads DVD or CD media differently. It can be "bad" in a way that some work and others don't. Cost of laser replacement is too high, buy a cheap core unit and game on.

this isn't my area of expertise but if you really wish to play resident evil, go on doperoms.com and go to emulators, choose a psx emulator and then download it then you can download any ps1 roms like resident evil and play them for free on your computer. it doesn't take a powerful computer, these games will run on an iphone 3g, leave a good rating if this helps

I have a ps2 slim SCPH-79001, so I am not sure if it will work with the fat ps2s but:

Turn the ps2 horizontly with the ps2 front facing you. Then put it in, you should hear a few ticks (with the slim) and just tap it against you knee a few times until you jear it spinning.

Again, I'm not sure if this will work with the fat ps2, but I hope I helped.

PS3 is backwards compatible with PS2 games, and USED to play them


In Playstation Store, you should download (for free) the PS2 SYSTEM DATA (something like this).
if you have formated your system, the files were erased, and the games won't play until you download the backwards comparibility files again.

DISC READ ERROR


try cleaning the lens with a Q-tip and a little bit of rubbing alcohol (not dripping). lightly touch the Q-tip to the lens and TWIRL it. use the other end of the Q-tip to dry it. or get a laser lens cleaner, specifically designed for video game systems. for a fat PS2 go here and go to the very end. www.powerfulguides.com/ps2 hope this helps :D

My ps2 reads all other games except guitar hero world tour.


To all you guys having this problem with PS2 - I bought World Tour for my brother and put it in this morning. It worked the 1st time we put it on, but we restarted the game because both guitars weren't connected, and it would NOT work after that (we have an old fat PS2 by the way). After reading online, I found out this disc is a Dual Layered DVD, and can cause problems reading it

Here's what I did to fix it - I took out all 8 screws on the bottom of the PS2, popped the case off, and then took out the 2 tiny screws for the DVD drive. After taking that case off, you can see the laser lens. All I did was clean it with an alcohol-soaked Q-tip, then buffed it clean, and after turning the game back on - it works fine! We're so pumped over here, and to anyone else having the problem, I bet this will fix it! Good luck!

My ps2 is broken


okay, are you saying you can't watch DvDs ? I would highly recomend not watching DvD's on PS2, especially HD movies. The PS2 does not have the hardrive to read most movies perfectly.

PS2 only getting a red light - not powering on


Is the system fat or slim?
If its fat then it is the internal power supply.
a 12$ total fix from parts via ebay takes 10-15 min to take apart and re-assemble. I can help you step by step let me know.
