My ps2 freezes after about 5 mins


Most likely caused from dust under the DVD Deck. This requires that you open your console and blow the dust out ( DO NOT USE A VACUUM Tiny parts can be sucked up that will render it completely useless). After you have done this and put it back together again clean the laser as dust will have collected on it from when you blow out the dust. If you do all this and it is still doing the same thing it just could be a case of the poor old PS2 is wearing out.

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

The red standby light is on but it wont turn all the way on and show the green light


odd problem you have there

how old is your PS2? the power button might be starting to go if its anything older then 3-5 yrs, when did you buy it and how often do you use it?

also

are you holding the button when you press it? if yes then thats the problem, it only needs a single press, otherwise it just turns itself off again after 1 second of holding it

tell us how you go

Playstation 2 won't play DVDs


if it's a fat PS2 and
model SCPH 30001, SCPH 35001
(not including the models with an 'R' after the model #.

these models need the following to play DVDs:
- PS2 DVD remote with IR unit
- PS2 DVD disc player (sold with DVD remote w/ IR unit)
- PS2 memory card

you copied the DVD disc to the memory card. you used the memory card to play DVDs.

later models didn't need the memory card to play DVDs.

hope this helps :D

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc


Hi Elvis,

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
