Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
My playstation 2 wont play playstation 2 games silver or blue/purple. it shows the bit with sony and the things moving then when the word playstation usually appears it makes the sound but it doesn't show the word playstation and then nothing happens. it will however play playstation 1 games
This can occur if the Playstation has been knocked or dropped. On the slim version if you remove the screws underneath and remove the top cover you may find the the small drive shaft has been dislodged from the motor. Push it back into place refit cover and screws. This fixed my PS2 with this fault.

There are many videos on how to clean and adjust the laser if you checkout www.youtube.com. Search on "playstation 2" (or 3 depending on your model)
At least you get to actually see someone fix the problem which is far easier than following written instructions.

Don't forget if your cleaning your own laser... that eye you see is just a piece of glass... underneath is a mirror and the laser. So remember to blow under the eye with compressed air... but be careful the laser sits on copper wires.

Buy a dvd lens cleaner, Walmart, or Walgreens has them, I bought the Scotch brand, will work on PS2!
