Re: I can't watch dvds

Put in the DVD, allow it to load up. Press the Select button on the controller. This will pop up a small menu. Highlight "Setup" and press the X button. This will take you to the area for parental lockout. When you get the Enter passowrd scren going, Enter '7444', it will then prompt you to enter another password. normally people use '0000' Now you can scroll down the movie rating list and select "OFF" so you dont have this problem anymore.

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!!


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


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.

Bought a ps2 on ebay and the parental control is on level 4. previous owners don't know the code and I don't eaither and I cant play any dvds. I tryed 7444, which is sapposed to be some kinda deletion...

I'm not sure if you have tried this but try leaving the PS2 unplugged from any power source (no power cables attached) for approx. 72 hours. See if it clears it.

Cannot change screen size

To get widescreen you need to connect to the TV using component, DVI, VGA, or HDMI cables. I doubt the PS2 can connect with either of those.

MY japoneese ps3

The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.
