Ps2 freezing games

I was experiencing the same problem on my ps2 slim scph-90004. When I put a game in my ps2 it loads but after some time it just freezes at the same spot.I went to many shops but they dont recognize my problem.Then i open my ps2 slim (Warning:Opening of ps2 my void your warranty) and saw the lens which was not adjusted. SO,if you are experiencing the same problem then use the above method(For slim only).Look at the rod near the lens which has two small clips on it. Open the screws on the clips and take out your ps2 lens.Clean it with a cotton.Set the lens in some different position and load your games .

PS2 Slim won't load games (won't load final fantasy x specifically)

Take the game out and see if the laser is towards the back. If so, pull the eye towards the spindle or where the hole of the game goes.....and clean the laser eye with a q tip soaked in alcohol.....

My ps2 slim disk will not spin so nothing works

Might be internal...try opening the housing and get a better look inside. Your going to have to look inside. So removing the housing/case is a must.

My ps2 slim is not reading the disk

hi klb408

Your ps2 lens needs cleaning
1.Open your ps2 (if its the fat one) if its slim you should be able to see it just by opening the cover lid
2.Use a cotton swab w/ alcohol or lighter fluid to slightly rub the lens just cleaning it7234e32.jpg

PS2 slim starts to have a clicking sound and then freezes

I had this problem with the fatter PSP. It was a broken laser, and I had to take it in to get fixed.

My PS2 Slim plays music, black and blue discs, but doesn't play silver discs nor DVDs.

Is this a new problem or has your PS2 always had this issue? You cannot adjust the laser at all and are likely to damage it if you try, you can however clean the laser lens with a CD/DVD cleaning disk and you'd be surprised how often this resolves disk read issues. Some of these units did have a production fault that prevented them from reading DVD's, if your PS2 has had this fault since new and/or is under 12 months old you could probably have had it repaired/replaced by Sony but by opening it you will have invalidated you're warranty.
