Hi 123helpme,

It sounds like your PS2 is not booting up. If you get opening screen with no disc in the PS2 your motherboard is botting up ok. If your not getting the screen with the circling dots when you start up the PS2 your motherboard has a problem. If your PS2 does boot up and the screen goes balck after the disc is running, then your Disc is corrupted, and you will have to get a new Game disc. Please post some more details as to what exactly is happening to your PS2. We will get you a solution. You may need to send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for repair. Go click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Click on Video Game console repair services.

When i put the game in it will begin to start like it wants to play then all i will have is a black screen nothing shows up i mean nothing just brought the game and it wont play.

This seems like a disc problem. You will need to get another copy. If this isn't the problem nor solution, you will need to replace the laser in your blu ray drive. If that is the case, please post another question for instructions.

I just had this problem happen to me. I'm looking into it as well. Exactly what happened to mine, except I was playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 online.

Play station 2 console, put game in and nothing happens

Then your disc reader must be messed up. Try bringing it to a store that can fix it and see what they can do about it. Hope that helps.

Possibly the disk, you need to clean it with disk cleaner.
If the trouble still persist, it's the lens problem.

Open the case, then the mechanical case, after you see the lens, use a soft cotton buds, then put it in alcohol, then rub the lens firmly.
After that rub again with cotton buds without the alcohol, that should fix the problem.

Ah that happens to me. I threw mine at the wall, and then it worked. (True Story). And I get the awful screetching noise too. I think it has something to do with the "Fatty PS2s" Do you have a fatty PS2?
