Re: DVD-videos won't play, games do

If your PS2 is chipped for playing PS2 fake games then try the following steps: 1)Insert the DVD movie in your PS2 and hold the power button of PS2 until it light goes red. 2)Now again hold the power button until the light turns in green. and after that your DVD movie should work. ________________________________________________ If above solution does not works replace the lens with a new one.

PSP powers up, black screen, no sound

It could be, although if it hasn't been modified in anyway it could be the battery. If your son has used this battery so many times, say a couple months or years, the motherboard or chip could malfunction, causing shortage of power. Try getting a replaceable battery, or if you know another friend or guy that has a son/daughter with an extra battery try using it to save money. If it's not the battery, could be the firmware, or version. Hope these solutions help, let me know if they do or don't.
Good Luck!

My son purchased a Playstation 2 game that's in Japanese. Do they make a format disk, so that my son can play the game on a U.S. Playstation 2 ?

you can either go to your local game store and ask if they have a copy or there some programs that create backup files of the game and than you can burn them on to a normal DVD of CD-Rom and play it on your playstation 2.

The laser inside of the PSP broke so now none of my games will play

Two options Repair or Replace
If repairing goto to find a repair center.

Replacing buy a new PSP from Best Buy, Circuit City or some place that offers a warrenty and get the warrenty.

I did this with my sons DS and @ 19 months his screen went out and Best Buy replaced it with a new system.
