Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Ps2 slimline. Hi there, My slimline powers on and when I put a disc in I can hear it spinning. I don't see anything on the screen though. I've tried 3 different aerial cables and it does go to a black screen but nothing. Its almost as if the aerial connection isn't correctly attached. I don't know how to open it to have a look do you have any ideas?

Re: ps2 slimline.



You mean A/V ( Audio /Visual)cables.  This could be several things.  Motherboard bad. A/V Socket on back of Slim has a bad connection to the motherboard.  Try it on another TV, you may have a bad input on the TV.  You selected the wrong input on the TV. The channel is not set properly on the TV. 


The first two can be repaired by a Technician that knows about Playstation Repair and has plenty of Current experince.I run the website, and will charge up to $51 to repair this, if it is related to the first two possible problems.

My PS2 will play only some DVD movies fine. It does the same with PS2 games. Seems like they have removed something that the older, larger PS2s had that allowed them to read DVDs more deeply and play...

Hi there Mike,

The only possible reason for your problem, since your slimline ps2 is STILL reading them (but just a little slow sometimes), is because the lens could hardly read your discs due to dust build up. Try cleaning it using a disc cleaner and letting it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not fix the issue, then you may have to MANUALLY clean the lens. Open the cover and once you see the lens, get a clean swab or qtip and damp it in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens in a circular manner. Then let it dry and try to play those discs again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

My PS2 won't play discs?

Does it show anything on your tv? does it even reach the screen that has the Memory card and or settings? or is it just a black screen.

Make sure the disc you are using is a PS2 or if a DvD make sure your PS2 is compatible.

If its a black screen im sorry but i think your ps2 is broken mine broke last year =/ than bought a new one lol

Slimline powers on disc spins but no picture

sometimes its hard to start tv-games (ps2, gamecube) since you have to put it on 'video', and other stuff.  Depending on your tv you might have 'input 1,2, and 3' instead of 'video'. just keep changing settings, and if you have your 'tri-cable' into a vcr try pressing the vcr power button.
