Just load the disc the same as a game and it will play dvd movies. Use the controller to press play/start

I can't get a movie to play on my ps2


The PS2 has a pretty notorious poor history of functioning as a DVD player. Even the smallest of scratches on the disk can keep your movie from playing well.

If there's another option then I suggest you reach out and take it. Currently however, I would unfortunately just state that you are not alone.

Sony Playstation 2 DVD Player Region Free Fix

Would you like to unlock your Sony Playstation 2 DVD Player to Region Free?

There is more than one model of PS2, and more than one PS2 DVD player module. For some models or modules, only a Messiah 2 or Magic 2 chip installation will make them region free. However, many can be made region free, for free.

Follow these steps to unlock your Sony Playstation 2 DVD Player:

  1. Press and hold CIRCLE, RIGHT, L1
  2. Press and hold L3 and push the stick in hard
  3. Boot into the PS2 browser without a CD/DVD in the tray
  4. Press CIRCLE and R1 on the DVD
  5. Hold RIGHT until a menu appears
  6. Press CIRCLE and R1 again
OR
  1. Load the DVD into the PS2
  2. At the browser screen, select the CD icon the press and hold SQUARE then CIRCLE until the DVD menu appears, holding both buttons all of the time
  3. Either select the PLAY icon or the MOVIE START icon

Your Sony Playstation 2 DVD Player is now Region Free.

I hope that helps.

Can playstation act as dvd player or i should buy dvd player separately?


Yes, it can play DVD movies as well as Music CD'S and CD-R's music. You dont have to buy another machine. One tip thou when using it as a DVD plyr you might put it where ventilation can get to it - due to the overheating problem PS2 has. I use mine all the time, and I put a fan next to it, so I can play longer and watch movies longer. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

After burning a movie on computer i play it back on my playstation audio is intermitten but sounds well when played in other dvd devics


Region hack for the old driver:
Method 1:

Hold down L1, Circle, and Select while booting until movie starts

Method 2:

Press in L3 (the left analog stick) straight and hard until movie starts



Region hack for the new driver:
1: Start the PS2, enter the Browser

2: Insert DVD, wait for the CD icon

3: Select the CD Icon

4: Press Square and keep it down

5: Press Circle and keep it down (Do not release Square, you should now be pressing two buttons)

6: Wait for the DVD menu

7: Release the keys

8: Start the movie with the play icon or the movie start icon

Why does my ps2 play games and not dvd movies


It should play dvd's (provided it is the right reigon player for the type of DvD that yopu are trying to play), as well, but if it has stopped playing dvd then the problem may well be the laser, as there are 2 components to ps2 lasers, a dvd laser and a cd laser the dvd laser is much more sensitive and will be the first part of the laser to fail.

You could try cleaning the laser but it is much more likely that the laser will have to be replaced soon.

Ps2 wont play DVDs


Your PS2 laser is wearing out. When the laser starts to go, first games will skip... then eventually the PS2 will stop reading DVDs altogether. If you keep using it to read CDs, it will eventually stop reading those too and the laser will die altogether. Here's a website that will help you identify your PS2 model, show you how to replace the laser, and they sell parts and do repairs too

What it is, is from it playing on any burnt movies so now it won't play factory burnt discs only home-made burnt discs, try the movie on a home-made burnt disc. If nothing you can get a DVD player for like 20 bucks at wal-mart.
