Getting a disc error when turning on the ps2 with ps2 games, but it works with ps1 games...!


Theres a wheel in the disc drive that controls the elevation of the lens. To mod your ps2 to read burnt ps2 games ONE would alter the height of the lens by adjusting the wheel ever so slightly. There are online tutorials in the precise adjustments for different disks. (one height reads only ps1 games, another height reads ps1 and ps2 games, and one more height reads ps1/ps2 and burnt ps1/ps2 games) Your best bet would probably be to just purchase another ps2 used, but if you want to do it yourself, you can.

I bought this laptop from a market stall i tried to play dvd's but nothing comes up at all


Can your DVDROM read the DVD when it is insert?
Open your Windows Explorer and see if the DVDROM can read the DVD data!
If you can't see the data on the DVD, probably your DVDROM or or DVD is the problem.
If you can see the data on the DVD, then you have not install the necessary "codec" to play the video from the DVD.

My Playstation 2 Console Keeps 'Freezing'


Well, you have one of two things going on. Either A.) your laser lens is dirty or B.) Your laser lens is out of alignment.

Using lens cleaner kits are useless for any cdrom or dvdrom if you're a smoker and smoke around your PS2. Reason I say this is nicotine and other resin forms cloud your lens over time and create a film on it.

By what it sounds like to me is since it's reading disks part of the time and kinda works, that your laser lens alignment might be ok. However, don't rule this out completely.

First, do a cleaning. Power on your PS2 and open dvdrom tray via the button on your console and power down the PS2 via the switch on the back. The point of this is to keep the dvdrom tray open as you take apart your PS2 so we can get at the lens. Take the PS2 apart (flip it upside down and remove the 8 screws from the bottom, 4 maybe covered up by rubber and plastic square plates so remove those to get at the screws) Next, take the top of the PS2 off and look at the DVD assembly, there should be four screws that keep the lid on the dvdrom. Remove these four screws and take the plastic plate off the top of the dvdrom. Watch this video and clean the following items:



Put your PS2 back together and test. If this doesn't work let me know and i'll go over instructions on how to align your laser lens. But i'm quite sure, by what you have told me, that this is your problem.

Model 50001 fat ps2 cleaned the lens adjusted the arm...


If your lens is not moving up and down the track at all even in bootup then sounds like your motor is fried. What i'm referring to is this:

You can find similar parts like this .::HERE::.

To verify this, open your dvdrom tray. Power off the PS2 via the swtich on the back of the PS2 (thus leaving the dvdrom tray open) Tare down your PS2 and remove the four screws on the top of your DVD-ROM unit (if this is a fat model, if it's a slimline model you'll have to remove that whole platic piece covering the unit itself) You may have to do some research on this next part (via google) but remove your DVD-ROM tray so you can see the guts of the DVD-ROM. Then power on your PS2. And ask yourself the following questions as you observe.

1.) Does the lens move at all even right after bootup?

2.) Is the siver bar part of the motor(pictured above) turning at all to make it move?

If it doesn't turn at all then there is your problem. If it does turn, and the lens doesn't move at all then the ribbon cable that connects the lens to the board maybe damaged or the lens itself is damaged.

Hope that helps

Disc read error


Hmmmm, Then poissibly the motor might have a need for servicing. Because by the sounds of it, the motor isnt moving quite right inside the system. I ran into this problem with my PS1 and PS2's that i have had over the years. Motors can wear out over time and use. If your like my friends, they go through a new PS2 in a year flat, because it is used 20 to 22 horus a day by 3 different people. So yeah, they use theirs very well.

Back to subject. Anyways, if the motor is not actually doing much but clicking, it sounds like there is an Obstruction in the way of the spin. Meaning, its not getting its complete rotation every whatever amount, so it will not read the disc. The motor also has to be able to move back and forth to read the disc as you play it and if that motor goes, than you rarely can play a game all the way through.

There are usually a number of computer stores (small time) that offer repair services for a price. They can usually order the small parts and Sony lets them install those replacement parts, because like all big companies, it takes a lot longer to get things done because everyone goes there first.

When searching for a store that can help, be specific in questioning. You need to ask directly if they have any employee's who know how to service PS2's

Clicking noise


Yuk, you're not gonna like the solution to this but you have one of two things going on. That clicking noise you're hearing is the laser eye hitting the disk cuz it's havin problems reading it. There are a couple of reasons that would cause this. 1.) The laser lens is out of alignment. 2.) The lens itself is either damaged or the potentiometer pots on the back of the lens itself (if the ps2 dvdrom drive is taken apart and the eye is removed and flipped upside down there are two screws on the back of the eye, one controls laser voltage for dvds one controls laser voltage for CD) needs adjusting.

If you're lucky it's 1, that's a pretty easy but time consuming fix. You take the cover off the PS2. You power on the PS2 open the dvd-rom via the button on your console then manually power off the PS2 via the switch on the back, thus leaving the dvdrom tray open. You then take the screws off of the top of the dvdrom drive and remove that plate the screws are holding down. You'll see a large COG gear that should appear white in most models. Whether it is white or black there is a allen wrench hole in the center of it, you'll notice. The size of the cog is question is about the size of a 50cent piece(in most models, some it's about the size of a quarter). It's quite large and hard to miss. Get yourself a permanent marker and find some way of marking it's current position so if all else fails you can re-align it back to it's current position. Next get an allen wrench that fits the whole in the center. Here's the time consuming part, Turn that cog (start clockwise) One click (meaning turn it till you feel one click) put a game in, place the plastic lid back on but don't put the screws in and put something on top of the plastic dvd cover to hold if firmly in place and power on the ps2. If the game doesn't load, rinse and repeat this method from the beginning untill you have gone through every single gear notch on the cog. If you're not savvy with written instructions and need pictures to guid you in taredown and identification here's a guide with pics. http://arstechnica.com/articles/paedia/hardware/ps2.ars/1

Now if you've gone through every single gear on that cog and still can't resolve the issue the other steps would include adjusting the voltage on the back of the PS2 lens. I have created a solution for someone else with a similar problem that can be found here http://www.fixya.com/support/t1122813-ps2_modded_trouble_reading_dvdrs

You first use that guide to identify your PS2 version then you go to the link provided within that guide and follow the directions to set your voltage correctly.

If neither of these solutions solved your issue then your PS2 laser lens is damaged totally and needs to be replaced. You can either replace the lens itself (about 20-40bucks) or replace the entire DVD-ROM unit (not needed, but some people do this if they don't feel like dealing with alignment)

Hope that was of some assistance,
Good Luck

The bios files i downloaded for pcsx29.4 now it stars i had rocatd the memory card but how to start the game


I would advise that you do not load them from DVD. I have had poor luck because of the driver in PCSX2 that runs the DVD rom drive. It's not fast emulation. If you know how to do so I would suggest you make an ISO of the game and place it on your computer then go into PCSX's configuration menu and go to CD/DVDROM and use the ISO loader . What this will do is it emulates a CD/DVDROM drive and will load any ISO you tell it to. I'm sure you can see the advantage of doing this. It will speed up the game play and emulation by a very large margine because it will read off your hard drive instead of your CD/DVDROM. 7600 RPM is much faster then any CD/DVDROM drive.

The next thing you NEED TO DO is to go to this page and make sure the game you are trying to play will even work with the PS2 emulator. Keep in mind nothing is 100% perfect and some games will not even load period or will have issues. SO check this list .::HERE::. either type your game name into the search engine or click the letter that your game starts with. ALWAYS check this list when you're trying new games. Some games have had known graphical errors or menu problems. So make sure you check this list first cuz it will help save you some frustration when trying to get games to load.
