My Playstation 2 plays hardly any games and no DVD's. I bought it off e-bay but the seller reassures me that it was working when they last used it.

Try blowing inside the disc tray while it is open.. I am positive the lens is dirty or dusty as long as it does play some things. You can also purchase Airduster. It's air in a can for blowing out and cleaning electronics

Sounds to me that your laser is going turning on its side or even upside down will work but only on games with silver color not the blue ones same for dvd
replacment is cheap at your local game store hope this helps /oh you statutory rights would entitle you to a refund

All you can do it to take off its top cover, then clean Optical Lens with good quality cotton bud in its dvd drive.

Please be aware, unit must be plug out from AC before take off cover and also requires sound experience of electronics repair.

If you are not comfortable with that, take the PS2 to local repair shop for lens cleaning.

What is the expansion bay?


The expansion bay is a 3.5" bay designed to house a harddrive and network adaptor for use with certain online games. You need to buy the Playstation Hard Disk Drive accessory if you have a PS@ with one of these expansion bays and would like to use the features it offers, although online play functions and the overall online gaming experience via the PS may be limited given the age of the console and most gamer's migration to newer, different consoles.

We bought a used play station 2 and it doesn't play the DVD games. We believe that it doesn't have have a memory card could this be why it isn,t working?


First see if it plays cds. If so, try DVD movies. If so, try a game. If it plays cds but not DVD's or games, either the laser needs to be adjusted or replaced. I got a few PS2's from friends that they used ALOT. Turned out the lasers were bad. Memory cards only store game saves and such and don't help with media booting.

Bought a used playstation 2-need to get parental


Here is the procedure to reset the parental lock code:
1. Bring up a screen where the unit asks you to enter in the parental code. You can either insert a restricted disc, or enter the DVD setup menu and go to "parental control" under custom setup.
2. When the screen asks for the code, press the SELECT button, then enter in the code "7444".
3. The level adjustment under Parental Control dictates the strictness of the player. The lower the value, the more strict it will be. Either increase the value to lower the restriction, or disable the lock entirely by setting it to "off".
4. Once you have made your adjustments, be sure that the DVD tray is empty, and press the RESET button on the front of the Playstation 2. It is imperative the tray is clear of any DVD or game for the unit to save your settings.

If this does not work, the other code is usually 0000. However if they change the default password, then it will be hard to find out.

Lee playstaytion two


Hi Lee,
Your lasers on the way out.
it,s all to do with the power output of the laser head, and the angle for reading the 2 different disk types.
i,d suggest getting a new laser fitted. not too expensive usually with older consoles. Try E-Bay :)
