Re: Ps 2 chipped

I have also envountered problems with dogs life, my only reasonable explination is:


dogs life is most propably written on a normal CD-R,

and sometimes a chipped PS2 struggles to read CD-R games, you will also find that older PSX games wont work either, hope this is of some help.


have a blessed day.

Ps3 loads most games first time however after about 20 mins of playing battlefield BC 2 the sound stops working i can hear people talk through headset but no game sounds when i reset and insert the game...

Hi Danny41,

The disc reading problem is quite a common one!

It is caused by the laser coming away from the drive and you need to readjust the laser to get it to work.

Sounds bad but at least the drive is not broken JUST the laser needs readjusting.

Now let us look at how you can fix this:

Solution 1:

The normal way to fix this is to send it in and they will do the work for you at the factory. However it will cost about $150 and also you will have to wait about 4 weeks.

If you do not play on your PS3 that much this may be the best solution for you.

Solution 2: For A Faster Fix

If you want the games reading problem fixed quickly then you should check out some good PS3 Repair guides.

They normally include videos showing you how to readjust the laser - it takes about 20 mins.

Make sure you check out the full reviews below so you can fix a good one!

Won't read games-any bluray

Usually 80010516 = An error occured during the start operation; PS One game swapped using the eject function and then play pressed quickly, PS One game inserted again.

Well there are only two things that can be done.
1.) Check to make sure the disk is clean, as well as the PS3 vents.
2.) Get a cleaning disk to clean the lens.

If those to do not work you may want to try saving all of your game saves and anything you want to save and do a full system restore (format) IF nothing then, call Sony to have the lens replaced.

If you want you could do this your self. Many online manuals to how to take apart the PS3 and clean the lens.

Swap disk

As far as I know, the only way to play backups is to "chip" the console. On the PS2 there is a switch located under the DVD tray that can be flipped to remove regional restrictions, allowing you to play import games, but it doesn't work with back ups.

Playstation 2 problem

I would try cleaning your Playstation games, Check and make sure that the games your trying to play are not cracked in anyway. Also, if you have your system standing vertically lay it down horizontally. Many times after you've closed the disk in it lens to far away from the lens.

Ps2 won't read ps1 memory card

PS2's don't read PS1 memory cards outside of the browser screen. It can only be used as access memory. Hope this helped. As for the slots it might be only fixable by a mechanic.
