My children's playstation did the same thing. I'm not sure if you have the slimline model or not however, I went into the Sony Playstation website under their troubleshooting section:

Take Disc Out
Restart System
In the Menu Press Triangle for the Version Info Screen
Highlight Console option and press triangle
Press x and highlight on press x again
Press o 2 times to go back into the main menu
Insert Disc
Close Tray (DO NOT RESET SYSTEM)
Highlight Browser
Press X to Read Disc

This did work for me but I did have to do it twice.

I hope this helps you

The ps2 deosnt seem to read the cd and comes up with message cant read and the screen shows browser configuration set up


Greetings,

Most likely, the problem is that your Cd is either too scratched or dirty. If its dirty, gently dab with rubbing alcohol and rub off with a kleenix or soft towel. If the Cd is scratched use a machine such as this to fix it.

Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.

Hello,

The following could be the problem;

1. It could be that you inserted a wrong format of the CD.E.g Inserting a PAL cd into an NTSC console.

2.The CD is jammed and may need to be re-booted.

3. The CD you are inserting is a bad disc.

Best regards

Wont spin or read disk


Try cleaning the laser arm.if your console is pretty old like mine I try replacing the laser arm i picked mine up for a fiver on ebay, and it did the job of fixing disk read errors, over time the arm can wear down so the disks arent read properly.

Ps2 (slim)


Well first off, make sure the disk if in PS1 OR PS2 format. That is what the PS2 Is requesting when it says "Please insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk. The Slim PS2 has various problems reading disk.(Don't Know why? I own it and Know it does). The Fat version(1st version) is a much better system, in my opionion. Try blowing air to clean the disk reader. Or changing the disk reader portion out, At a small price.

Jammed cd drive


  • Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
  • If the disc cannot be inserted, you may need to send your system in for service, please click on the link below.
