Re: Disks does not play.....

First thing to try is use a can of compressed air and blow that into the area of the lens from many angles. If that doesn't work you'll have to open up the PS2 and try a more direct version of the former. If not then email me and I will get to work on making a "youtube" video for it.

I have playstation 2 but it play only pal cds but i want to play ntsc discs on please hope u can help me

Hi there. Sorry to say but Sony has developed PS2's to be region blocked. SO if your PS2 is a PAL region then it will only be able to play PAL region games. There is no real way to allow your PS2 to play NTSC disks unless it is modded.

A PS2 mod in Canada costs up to $30.00.

Please rate and comment, Thank You.

Hi scorpion013,

PS2 games are region locked which means that disks from other regions won't work on your PS2. If it keeps displaying that message it means that you need to buy the region appropiate disk.

Sorry about the inconvinience.

My ps2 can't read fake discs how can i fix this

Get real disks. Fake disks won't work with the approved PS2 software, only a true Sony PS2 or PS1 game will be read by the system. Otherwise, your going to need to install a totally new system onto the PS2 over the original OP. It's a lot cheaper and simpler to just play the real games.

I cannot play my dvd game on my ps2 , but my friends can play my dvd game on his ps2

Fat and Slim PS2's generally have different playability with disks. a slim, for example, does not want to play old blue-backed disks, though it will easily read PSX black backs. I'll need more information on the disk and the PS2 to give a complete answer.

Ps2 wont read discs and asks for format disc

I can guess that the games you are trying to play have a Blue underneath and not silver. This was a big problem with my sons disks too using the older version of the ps2. We managed to mess about with some of the settings and changed the rgb setting to the other option (can't remember what that was now...sorry) and got some of them to work, but not for long. When the new games come out now they expect you to have the slimline ps2 and unfortunalty won't work on the older model. So to fix this problem I just bought a new one.

Disks wont spin on new laser

Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.

Disk wont spin

First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
