A DVD cannot re-write your PS2 to make it go back to normal. They scammed you there, man. The laser gets used to, like a habit, what you play on it. If you play burnt discs, it gets used to the writer that wrote that because it wasn't written by what Playstation. You have to get another PS2.

I have Sony play station 2 model SCPH 75004 which is failing to play PS1 DVD and CDs. I hear it requires a mod chip. Where can I get the mod chip and how is it installed to the PS2.


ruben, the PS1 is the only system created with the capability of adding a mod chip. When they first came out, the PS1Generation 1(PSX)could play burned games and DVD's. Sony discovered that it created an issue with the excessive wear of the cd drive, so they recalled the system. Then they re-released it and it couldn't play DVD's anymore. The PS2 could already play DVD so it has no mod chip function.

Sometimes is can read ps2 cds... sometimetimes it cant and can only read ps1 cds? wat is the problem of my console??? help plssss.....


PS2 CDs are in fact DVDs, whereas PS1 CD are CDs. The DVD reading part of your laser unit is failing. You need to replace the laser unit. This is not necessarily an easy process as you may also need to tweak the positioning of the laser as well.

I was just wondering, IF the PS2 can play games that have been edited on a computer/laptop (e.g. 4-disc PS1 game put onto one disc), and not edited as in the actual game disc being edited, but put on a...


Your system needs a mod chip to play games on a disc that was not created by Sony.
Most ps2 games are DVD's only some are cd's.. All of the ps1 games are cd's so if you burnt it onto a dvd its not going to work.

Will play ps1 game but not ps2


The PS2 has two different lasers, one for CD games and one for DVD games. The tuning for each is independent. If DVD games are working and CD games are not (backups or originals, PS1 or PS2) and cleaning the CD laser doesn't work and everything's connected together well then you may need to tune/align the CD laser. Just go to Lycos.com and type in 'PS2 laser alignment'. My favorite is the one from Sweden.

It's likely the DVD laser behind the lens is faulty, this would allow it to only play PS1 games. You can try contacting sony as they do both warranty and non warranty repairs.

Hope this helps.
