My son's playstation 2 will take the disc but then goes right to a browser/system configuration page. When I choose browser it says reading disc... and stays like that for a long time. It is on a memory card page at this point. If I choose the memory slot it comes up with his latest game Lego Batman. I can't get it to do anything else. Help!! We have a sim one that is also doing the same thing. Do they need a severe cleaning (bought second hand)? The slim playstation would work if I cleaned the lens with alcohol. Thanks for your reply.
Try going to the version press the triangle button then go to the console then enter then turn on the diagnostic then put the disc then go to the browser then wait for the cd to pop.(DO NOT TURN OFF THE PS2 OTHERWISE THIS MIGHT NOT WORK.)

Does this problem apply to ALL of your discs? If not, then first, when putting your discs in the tray, be sure that ALL of the three PINS on the tray that holds the disc are locked in place, meaning they should all be sticking out on the hole of your DVD. This happened to me a lot...heheh...then, if this problem apply to all of your disc, There probably is a problem with the lens of your PS2...either slim or the fat one...then the only solution is to have your lens replaced...sorry, but i don't know how much it cost now...
can you go into the browser ? can you view your mem card? You can try the auto-diagnosis. heres how Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system)1. Turn on the system without a disc inside.2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen.3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again.4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more.5. Now press the circle button twice to return to the Main Menu.6. Press the eject button on the front of the console, and insert a disc.7. Now close the disc tray, but DO NOT reset the system.8. Highlight the Browser option from the Main Menu, and then press the X button.9.
In the Browser, an icon of the disc should appear on the screen.
Highlight this icon, and then press the X button to read the disc.10. If the auto-diagnosis is successful, the disc should load properly at this point.NOTE: The auto-diagnosis feature will return to "Off" the next time a disc is inserted. or try cleaning the lens and games
After extensive research on this subject and working on several Playstation II systems. I found out the reason your system will play only blue disks and not silver is a alignment problem with the laser. It could be tilted or set to high or low. The quickest solution is to call Sony and get a new laser with the shuttle.
If i am not mistaken it cost 50.00 and just go to the playstation site select support and it will explain in full detail how to take your system apart and replace the laser and shuttle.
