Hello , TBagg
You are experiencing what I believe is the dreaded Disc Read Error. This can be solved by opening the unit and thoroughly cleaning the inside from hair, Dust, lent. Clean the laser with a q-tip lightly soaked with Rubbing alcohol. Close it up and try it. Chance are you fixed it. if your problem is more severe, please check out

Regard and best wishes, Greg at the Playstation Clinic Please Click on Solved as you only get one chance to vote.  TIf you click less than that I get cheated out of a solved vote. I do give good tips.

My ps2 wont play blue disc i have a action replay for nfsu2 for ps2 and my ps2 wont read it can i fix it?

Blue colored disks are the hardest for your ps2 to read, there is an adjustment to try to improve this, but it requires opening your console and digging into the DVD drive. Most people don't bother with it unless it won't play other disks. Here is a link to instructions:

Good luck.

PS3 Wont Play Game OR Blue Ray Disc

reset to the factory default then load ver 2.60(most current). If the system still does not read any discs the laser is bad.

Ps2 wont read discs and asks for format disc

I can guess that the games you are trying to play have a Blue underneath and not silver. This was a big problem with my sons disks too using the older version of the ps2. We managed to mess about with some of the settings and changed the rgb setting to the other option (can't remember what that was now...sorry) and got some of them to work, but not for long. When the new games come out now they expect you to have the slimline ps2 and unfortunalty won't work on the older model. So to fix this problem I just bought a new one.

What you're seeing is the menu. You need to put the disc in the console, or the disc is dirty and will not play, so it then automatically goes to the menu.
