Re: wont load

This is usually a laser problem if you are ok taking the casing off your ps2 then when you switch it off make sure it is unplugged the gently push the laser back to the start position witch is in the middle then put it back together and try again at loading your gam if this dont work you will have to buy a new laser and motor you should be able to buy these off ebay the are easy to fit as the lead is held on with a push connecter this should solve your problem if this dont work then their is nothing you can do but you can buy repair manuals off the net as well alot of computer repair shops relly on these manuals as they cover a broad range of problems on ps2 but this is a commen problem hope this helps if not post problem again

Try this to play DVD movies on your PS2 if it wont play DVD movies.

If your PS2 works fine with Games and just wont play any DVD movies at all.Then you should try this trick to play movies on your PS2:

  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:894e4e5.jpg
  3. Press the ps_b_triangle.gif (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like3aef030.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press ps_b_triangle.gif (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear like0163e66.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press ps_b_x.gif button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the movie plays itself.If your lens is good then it will play DVD in first go else try again till it PLAY your DVD movie.

Thank you!

Ps2 wont play DVDs

Your PS2 laser is wearing out. When the laser starts to go, first games will skip... then eventually the PS2 will stop reading DVDs altogether. If you keep using it to read CDs, it will eventually stop reading those too and the laser will die altogether. Here's a website that will help you identify your PS2 model, show you how to replace the laser, and they sell parts and do repairs too

Tekken 5 slow on PC

To emulate the PS2 takes a lot of system power so your PC might not be strong enough to handle it.
