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!

My sons playstaion was bought for him in feb 2010. it keeps freezeing. he cant plat 2players on fifa' also has trouble shuting it down. and switching it on. the list just goes on and on what should we do...

If you bought it new then the best thing that I would recommend would be to contact Sony and have them fix the problem. Since it is not even six months old they should be able to fix it for free. This statement is directly from Sony's website for product information. I have also attached the link that has all the contact information. Sony Computer Entertainment America ("SCEA") warrants to the original purchaser that the PS3™ hardware shall be free from material defects in material and workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the original date of purchase (the "Warranty Period").
