Unfortunately i think the region codes are set into the hard memory of the ps2 unit, you could try changing the time zone to US and see if that does anything...

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.

I cant unlock my ps2 console to watch a region 1 dvd and ive tried some unlocks but they wont work


make sure your console has the ability to read region 1 discs in the first place.
REGION 1 -- USA, Canada
REGION 2 -- Japan, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Greenland
REGION 3 -- S.Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Parts of South East Asia
REGION 4 -- Australia, New Zealand, Latin America (including Mexico)
REGION 5 -- Eastern Europe, Russia, India, Africa
REGION 6 -- China
REGION 7 -- Reserved for Unspecified Special Use
REGION 8 -- Reserved for Cruise Ships, Airlines, etc...
REGION 0 or REGION ALL -- Discs are uncoded and can be played Worldwide, however, PAL discs must be played in a PAL-compatible unit and NTSC discs must be played in an NTSC-compatible unit.
The end result is that DVDs encoded for regions other than Region 1 cannot be played on a region 1 DVD player, also, players marketed for other regions cannot play region 1-stamped DVDs.

If you forgot the parental control code and you need to unlock that, though, then try this:
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.

I have a PS2 Slim and it won't read discs. Every time I put a disc in it won't spin it will just go to the screen that says browser and system configuration. Please help me!!


Causes:

1. DVD has lots of scratches
2. Regional Settings
3. Incorrect DVD settings for PS2
4. No/Incorrect Disc

Remedy:

1. Clean your discs well and avoid incurring scratches. Place it in
its box after use.
2. DVDs have encoding. They are encoded by regions. Thus, you cannot
play region 2 DVDs on a US Playstation mainly because the US
Playstation 2 can only read DVD that are encoded in Region 1 or
those DVDs that are encoded for all regions. Again, US PS2 are
region 1 capable. Japanese PS2s are Region 2 Capable.
3. There are a number of settings for the DVD playback of your
PS2. First is the rating of the DVD. If you want to watch a
rated R movie, make sure your PS2 allows viewing of R movies.
You'll be setting this during the first time that you'll be
watching a DVD. It's just the same as real theaters. It is also
protected with password so you need the person who set it up
the first time in order to bypass the rating settings.
4. Put in a DVD first and make sure that it is a Movie. And,
check #2.

What is a PS2 format disk and where do I buy one.


Hello thompsonfc,
A PS2 format disk is basically any game disc that is created for use in the Playstation 2 console. Any PS2 game that you buy in the region where you bought your console should be compatible. Certain PS1 games and PS2 games from different regions will cause this error to display. Send a reply if you need any further information or please rate this solution if you found it helpful. Thanks!

Some games are for other regions of the world, the machines are made to only play certain regions games, hence people chipping them, the downloaded games may be missing encrypted data, thus wont play.

Playstation 2


if you bought your PS2 where you live then you have a region code problem ..Please make sure the Region Code of the software matches that of the North American PlayStation 2 system. Only discs (games and movies) coded with regions "1" or "All" will work on a North American PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system. Consumers residing in the United States or Canada must use a North American PlayStation 2 console in order to view "Region 1" content.

this is same for yours too..
