Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Menu Navigation Error?

Okay, here's what's happening. When ever I try to play a DVD movie or certain PS2 games, the selection of the menu options goes directly to the bottom item and won't let me select anything else... I don't know what to do O_o I've already tried to re-start the console and re-plug in the controllers...but nothing seems to work. Can someone please help me?

Tip

Make a SONY PS2 multiregion with SCPH 1000 firmware.


NOTE: this will only work on the earlier models with the SCPH 1000 bios 22/9/2004

1. Press and hold Circle , Right and L1
2. Press and hold L3 and push the stick hard
3. Boot into the PS2 browser without a CD/DVD in the tray
4. Press circle and R1 on the DVD
5. Hold right until an menu appears
6. Press circle and R1 again.

If this fails try this

1. Load the DVD into the PS2 that you want to play.
2. At the browser screen select the CD icon press and hold circle and square until the DVD menu appears.
3. Either select the movie select icon or the play icon.

If these two fail you will need a Messiah chip OR magic chip 2 installed

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

8) once the movie starts, press 'select'.
9) click the 'stop' icon.
10) click the 'stop' icon again (the icon must be gray even when you have it highlighted).

12) move to parental control option, press right directional button, enter password (0000).
13) move down to 'level'.

Changing parental control


Start the PS2 up and load the DVD. When it shows the Parental screen select YES. When the Password box pops up. Press the Select button on the controller. Type in 7444. Then your password is reset. It will ask you to enter another password. Do that twice. Allow the movie to start. When it gets going pause the movie, Press the Select button on your controller again. The DVD menu pops up. highlight SETUP. When that setup screen appears go to the 3rd icon from the left. Press X. Then highlight Parental Code. Set the parental lockout level to OFF.
