All my other games for my slim ps2 work just fine but when i put god of war 2 in (new game nothin rong with the disk)my ps2 it made a clicking sound and said: disc could not b read. plz e-mail me and help...

Games like God of War 2, Grand Turismo 4 etc take time to load and some times these games are not loaded by consoles with weak lenses or dirty lens.You should consider cleaning your lens.Cleaning lens might solve your problem plus here is a trick for you to play such heavy games(Although its about playing DVDs on PS2 but you can play your game by following this tip the same way.)

My playstation 2 makes a weird clicky sound when I try to play some of my dvds or games and sometimes it comes up with disk error or unable to read disk and its a brand new disk

Your PS2 lens is displaced from its original position that is what scratching your Discs and makes weird noises too.There can possibly be another reason for them ,your PS2's reading lens is dirty and it is covered by a layer of dust that scratches your Discs and makes sounds too.
You should first clean the lens of your PS2 watch this video to know how to clean your PS2's lens:

Disk read errors are mainly due to dirty or worn out lens,so clean your PS2's lens to get rid of this problem and as for that sound that will get fixed by cleaning lens if still it makes that sound then you will have to take your PS2 to repairer to set the lens height.
Thank you!

I cannot play my dvd game on my ps2 , but my friends can play my dvd game on his ps2

Fat and Slim PS2's generally have different playability with disks. a slim, for example, does not want to play old blue-backed disks, though it will easily read PSX black backs. I'll need more information on the disk and the PS2 to give a complete answer.

Ps2 disk tray

To me if you have the old fat PS2's then it sounds like the motors are worn out. You can't fix this unless it's still under warranty and call PlayStation. But if not under warranty, try to seel it to like a pawn shop or something to get cash and I recommend getting the slim PS2. The disc tray pops open like the PS1, and the only thing that can mess that up is it getting something spilled in it to make it sticky. I've had mine for about 5 years now and it hasn't messed up at all. But make sure not to play burnt discs on it or it will get used to them and not play regular discs. Hope this solves!

Disk error

This happens often when your lens are in poor condition:

these are some actions that trigger this problem

1. If you played your PS2 without any rest for more than 3-4 hours

2. You didn't clean the lens at least twice a year (excluding PS2 slim)

3. Your PS2 fell on the ground

and these are some solutions:

1. Check your lens, it might be dirty or broken

2. Check the parts of your PS2, some parts might be damaged

3. Try a clean disc

i hope this helps

By formatting a disk, your actually creating a Blank-Disk.

The PS2 won,t read a blank disk.

is your console Saying " disk format Unknown "

This is a completely different Issue.

In this case, the PS2 does not play this type of Disk.

No music from player #1 port

i have noticed that playing two player with the sound too.. my disk was dirty too.clean it first.. Second if your just playing through your T.V. well its prob mono.. or if your playing through a home audio/video check your audio rca's make sure there pluged in all the way. if you are using home stereo newer model you can use the fiber optic on your ps2 the sound is better make sure your stereo has the same thing or it would be a wasted trip to the store.

Not loading game

the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.

New game won't play.

the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
