Re: ps2 wont work

It might just be that the laser needs cleaning if you can here the disk spinning round then this is probably the case you can by a lense cleaner and it is best to get a good quality one if this dont solve the problem then it is the laser unit itself take the case off wen unplugged and see where the laser is it should be in the middle by the disk that the game sits on if its not gently push it back to the start position and then put it back together and try your game if this still dont work then you will need a new laser unit but make sure u get the right one for your model u can fit these yourself but will need to get it re calibrated it is best to get someone to do this for you hope this is some help

My door will not stay shut to play a game what is ps2 door was not opening so we thought we fixed it but now it wont stay shut . all lights are on just wont stay shut to even read/play any games...

the tray doesnt stay in. does your ps2 sit on its side where the tray is sideways, or is it straight up? i think you should try rotating it to a point where it should stay shut.

My ps2 will load games, but freezes-up when loading the mission. screen stays blank.

First try using a DVD lens cleaner on the unit and check the game disks for imperfections. If scratches use a scratch fix kit. If the problem still happens even with a new game then your DVD drive needs to be replaced or just buy a refurbished or new PS2. They are cheap now so why not get a new one. Good luck

My slimline ps2 will play dvds but when I put in shadow of the colossus the system acts like it is loading by the loading circle on the lower right side of screen then the screen stays black and the game...

Take a Q-Tip and do light circular motions on the laser eye.
Often the case, you may just need to take a soft cloth and clean your video game disc.
It's one of the two.

Wont play game

When you say it goes "blank" does that mean it stays on the browser screen, or the whole screen goes dark ? You can email me directly at aztech at aol dot com.

Ps2 slim not working

make sure the game disc isnt dirty. also check the eye (game disc reader) to see if its dirty. if u cant see it (you probably wont b able to) then take it to a place like target or gamestop(GS). i reccomend GS.

Your HDTV only supports 1080i ? If thats the case make sure that under settings youve got only 1080i selected appart from 480p which is standard.

If thats not the case then tell me: Does sound play or just a blank screen and no sound??? (game crashes)
