PS2 does not read the disc.


Have you cleaned the laser? Try that first and if that dosen't help then your laser might be dead.

Not recognizing disk


My PS2 always does that now. Just make sure it's reading the disc in the System Browser, and it'll play fine.

Chipped PS2 suddenly stopped reading


Hmmmmm...
That is strange how the boot-up sequence can change. When You bought it, it sounds like it got mod-chipped when you bought it. if are one on the techy side of life then you can open your ps2 and look for one (google mod chip). Also the chance of one being there is higher because it can play copied games. Even though you bought it with the copied games, 1) copied games are illegal, and , 2) PS2's shouldn't be able to play copied games cause it wasn.t designed too.

I hope i helped,

Ps 2 disc wont turn


I had this same issue with my PS2, honestly I think it was something to do with the laser eye reader that reads the disc, when it is dirty the disc won't even spin or attempt to read it.

you can either take an air compressor and when the ps2 is off, have the disc tray open and blow the dust out of it.

Or, i personally would take the ps2 apart and clean the diode itself with some rubbing alcohol. Just don't void your warranty or somehow break it.

Ps2 not reading disc.


First you need to define what it IS and IS NOT reading. You'll need to run some tests.

Test 1: use a regular music CD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and put that into your ps2 and see if it starts playing it.

Test 2: insert a regular DVD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and try to play that.

If neither will play then it is one of two things. Your laser lens is out of alignment, or your laser lens is damaged.

If one plays but not the other, it is the potentiometer pots on the back of the PS2 lens that need adjusting. You can read more about that on one of my other posts ::.HERE.::

Disc wont read


Assuming you don't have a modchip installed.

1-800-345-7669 this is the sony customer service number. Call this number if your PS2 is getting Disc Read Errors. Sony will fix your PS2 for free even without a warranty. Remember to specifically mention the words "Disc Read Error" while speaking to the representative. He will give you the information for sending in your PS2, or he will give you the choice to email you the information.


The only part you will have to pay is the shipping (anywhere from 10-65 dollars depending on who you use). Also make sure you insure your PS2 on the way there. Why risk losing your PS2 just so you can save a few bucks?

You can call this whether you live in the United States or Canada. If you live outside of those two refer to your owners manual for your local Sony customer Service line.

The repair time varies but is always very short. Some have said that they received theres back within a week from when they shipped!

There are also other ways to fix your ps2 without sending to SONY, though i am very skeptical of these ideas. I mean why risk your PS2 when you can send it and get it replaced for free?

If you are tech savvy you can click one of the following links for info on fixing it yourself.
If you don't know what you are doing "DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME".

Game not working


okay, maybe the game is not compatible with the ps2, for eg if ur in europe they make the ps2's PAL compatible, if you're in USA they make em NTSC. other probs might be that clicking noise, doesnt sound too promising!! i dunno but dont get angry and smash the ps2 on the top, that wont help at all!! (like i did ^^)
