if the disk is a Blueback, most modern PS2 consoles won't touch it. bluebacked disks still have their data stored in CD format rather than in a Data DVD
to play a Blueback 1. turn on the unit without a disk in 2. press Triangle on "browser" 3. scroll up to the top item and press triangle again 4. turn "Diagnostic Mode" ON 5. back out with circle, and start the browser 6. put your disk in with the browser on. is should read the disk
some disks will still cause the red screen (like cheat devices) occasionally
From experience i would say you have bought a wonderful game! Well if you have been playing it for a while you might have gotten a scratch on it. A little trick that i learned was to lush it in the toilet. This may not seem like its going to work but i have done this maybe 7 times and every time it has worked. Another thing you could do if its brand new, is to bring it in to the store you bought it from and ask specificly for a trade in as your game isnt working properly. And any data you may have used should be saved on your play station.
Not 100% sure, but back when I worked for a Sony reseller this was most commonly caused by a faulty lazer (you'd be amazed at how often this happens). Lazers in general do not have an infinite lifespan, but video game consoles are natorious for this problem.
Presuming your PS2 is outside of its warranty, you can pick up a replacement lazer online from somewhere like eBay or some asian electronics websites for around $20-$30. It's relatively easy to replace yourself or an any electrician who works on dvd players etc will have no difficulty installing it.
The other common cause for this is scratched disks. Either way, it sounds like your machine is not able to read any information from the disk.
if you can see the swirly lights that allow you to get to the page that shows storage media ( should be a memory card and a disc labelled 'unknown disc' ) if you can see unknown disc you probably just have to clean the laser.
Disc Read Error generally means that the game disk cannot be read by your console.
Reasons for Disc Read Error 1. Disk surface scratched or smudged. 2. Disk surface dirty. 3. Lens surface dirty.
Here is what you can try doing.
1. Check the game disc for any scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.
2. If the PS2 console is lying down, please set the console to on its side or if it's on its side set it to flat position, restart the console and then try game again. Always ensure the PlayStation 2 is in a cool, well ventilated place.
3. Remove and reinsert the Memory card of your PS2, restart the console then try running the game again. Other troubleshooting that you can try.
Change the Disc speed of the PS2 DVD and then try again.
Start the PS2 with no disc in a drive. Press the "triangle" button on the controller. Use the up and down buttons on the controller to select "Playstation Driver” and press the "triangle" button on the controller. Select Disc speed. If it is set to "Fast," select "Standard"; if it is set to "Standard", select "Fast" and press the "X" button on the controller. Press the "O" button on the controller. Insert the game disc and restart the PS2. Try running the game again.
Turn the Diagnosis On for PlayStation2 to auto detect the best settings.
From the Browser and System Configuration menu. Press the triangle button to select Version. Highlight the Console from the list and press the triangle button - this accesses the next menu option. The Diagnosis will be highlighted. Press the X button to access the options available. Highlight "ON" and press the X button to affect the change. Restart the console and try the game again.
If the above steps does do not solve the error then you would probably have to replace the disc.
Note: If you are using the Slim version of PS2 make sure that the console is properly ventilated and that it should always be in the standing position, as the slim version of PS2 no fan or any other cooling unit unlike the normal PS2.
Well if that happens that means that you need a new one, or it might need a cleaning. I suggest you buying a cd/dvd cleaner for all your electronics but you only need one. Try that and you'll be playing your games in no time!!!!
