How to fix rsod on pcsx2 0.9.7


The infamous Red Screen of Desk -- A.K.A. Insert a Format Disc screen.

This screen is NOT asking for a disc to FORMAT the PS2. What it IS asking for is a PS2 or Playstation format [or a better word -- PS2 or Playstation TYPE disc. A disk with Playstation 1 or Playstation 2 type software on it -- in other words, a ps1 or ps2 game]. It's basically asking for a CD or DVD with software that the playstation can play. This red screen occurs when you insert an XBOX game or a burned/copied PS2 or PS1 game. What the PS2 is stating is that is cannot play this format [or type of] disc. It's asking you to insert a format [or type of] disc that it can recognize and use.

The most common reason for this screen appearing, if your PS2 does NOT have a mod chip, is a dirty lens. Try cleaning your lens and this should go away. What happens is that the lens becomes dirty and does not recognize the disc you inserted as being a PS2 or PS1 format [or type of] disc. So it's asking you to insert one. If your PS2 does have a mod chip installed, it could be a problem with the chip or the disc you burned. We don't install or sell mod chips, so we can't help you with that one.

Ps2 (slim)


Well first off, make sure the disk if in PS1 OR PS2 format. That is what the PS2 Is requesting when it says "Please insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk. The Slim PS2 has various problems reading disk.(Don't Know why? I own it and Know it does). The Fat version(1st version) is a much better system, in my opionion. Try blowing air to clean the disk reader. Or changing the disk reader portion out, At a small price.

Playstation 2 power button


Try pushing the eject button to see if the power button is faulty. If the PS2 is off and you press the eject button, it automatically turns the PS2 on and ejects the DVD tray.
