Well, my games sometimes do that so i get nail polish remover and a cotton ball and just clean the disk, and my games start working again, just try it. Good luck

Re: Guitar Hero/My PS2

HI Fireinside,

Sony PS2 games come is 3 or 4 different formats. Some of the formats require the Disc to spin at near the limits of the spindle drive motor. I have not run the Guitar hero game, so I am not sure which format it is. I know that the Discs with Blue colored media need to run at a very fast speed, and this gives Some PS2 consoles trouble when they have some lint, string, or Animal hair wrapped up in the spindle motor. Yes, it is a common problem. You have to open the PS2 and look under the motor that turns the disc to see if you have an obstruction.

If you are not comfortable with doing this kind of repair, please contact me at to arrange to get it repaired for a reasonable fee. This is usually less than $35 including return shipping. If we did work out a deal for repairing your PS2, I would ask you to send the Guitar Hero disc for me to try and be sure we go you what you needed. Good luck.

My Ps2 guitar hero plays Guitar hero #3 perfectly fine, but the other one Guitar Hero Rocks the 80's wont play at all. We were not able to get the World Tour to play at all. What gives?

Check the bottom of the disc it may be dirty or scratched. If its dirty then clean it with rubbing alcohol, if scratched you'll have to buy a scratch remover.

Guitar Hero Metallica and Rock Band 2 wont play. Other's will

Just turn the ps2 up horizontly and when you hear the ticks (if its slimline) just tap it against you knee. This will knock the laser a little bit away from the line in the center, and it will read. DONT DO IT SO HARD THOUGH.

I cant play guitar hero wont red disc. how do I

It should work, unless your disc is scratched, try another copy of the disk, otherwise you could go the more technical way and mod your ps2, rip the image onto your pc and then burn the image to a disc, and go that route.
But it shouldn't Not be playing unless your having internal issues, dirt on your lens or something..

Guitar Hero Metallica Wont play on my Ps2

okay, try this: 1. Start up PS2 with no disc 2. select 'Browser', press triangle. 3. select 'Console', press triangle. 4. select 'Diagnostics', press X, select 'ON'. 5. press 'O' to back out of this menu. 6. select 'Playstation Drive', press triangle. 7. select 'Disc Speed', press X, select 'FAST'. 8. press 'O' to back out of menu. 9. turn off PS2. 10. insert disc. The Diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I got this "FIX" from someone who had the same problem. Hope this helps :D
