I have a playstation 2 slimline model. it will not play original DVDs, it WILL play backed up DVD's but not original ones. I have over 200 original movies and only a hand full of backups what the heck has...

Your laser lense is more than likely dirty. It's not too hard of a fix. I recently had to clean mine. MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF! Unplug the unit, take out the screws on the bottom, then, when opened, take the screws out of the top of the disc player. Your laser lense should now be exposed. Gently clean it with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Reassemble. Good luck!

MY ps2 Doesnt read PS2 Cd games

If you are trying to read a burnt game, you need it chipped first. If not, maybe your game is burnt or scratched. Some video stores will fix them for free. (Movie Gallery is where I go)

Chipped PS2 suddenly stopped reading

That is strange how the boot-up sequence can change. When You bought it, it sounds like it got mod-chipped when you bought it. if are one on the techy side of life then you can open your ps2 and look for one (google mod chip). Also the chance of one being there is higher because it can play copied games. Even though you bought it with the copied games, 1) copied games are illegal, and , 2) PS2's shouldn't be able to play copied games cause it wasn.t designed too.

I hope i helped,

Some games are for other regions of the world, the machines are made to only play certain regions games, hence people chipping them, the downloaded games may be missing encrypted data, thus wont play.

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.

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.
