The ps2 only turns on and goes to the main menu. I go to the browser to load up the games and it just takes about twenty seconds and repeats it over and over. The games are not scratched and it wont play DVD's or CD's. Please help!!!!

Need to selct english on the ps2 box itself,its in asain can u help

Remove any disk and close the disk tray. Turn off your system and let it sit for a few seconds before turning it back on. Select the "Language" option from the main menu to open the language menu.
Move the cursor up using the directional pad on your controller until you get to "Language Select." Push the X button repeatedly until it lists "ENGLISH." This changes the audio settings from English to Spanish.
Scroll down to the "Subtitles" option in the language menu and change this setting to Spanish as well. The subtitles will appear in ENGLISH at the bottom of the screen every time a character in the game speaks. If you wish, you can skip this step and rely only on the audio settings.
Press the Circle button on your controller to move back to the main menu, which will save the settings. Select the correct time and date setting for your time zone, if the system asks you to do so. Push the Circle button again to access the main menu.
Place a PS2 game into your console and let the game load. You should now have ENGLISH, settings on your PS2, including subtitles.

PS2 wont read discs

This is optical lens assembly failure. you will need to replace this failed assembly in order to restore the normal functions.

Contact Sony for this repair.

Goes to Startup Screen when I put a game!

try cleaning the lens. for a slimline PS2, try a Q-tip with a little bit of alcohol on it and lightly touch the lens. gently TWIRL the Q-tip. use the other end of the Q-tip to dry the lens, again, gently twirl the Q-tip. or you could use a laser lens cleaner (see below). for a fat PS2, either use a laser lens cleaner specifically for video game systems (Best Buy, etc.) or go here and go to the very end. hope this helps :D

We just purchased Guitar Hero and when we put it in our PS2 it dont spin the disk??

Here's what I did to fix the same problem on my PS2 (Slim model # SCPH-70012). This should work for all models of PS2's. (Slim or Fat). Sony says all models can read a dual layer disc. If the fix doens't work then you need to send in your PS2 for service.

1) Start up the PS2 with no disc in it.
2) Highlight the 'Browser' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
3) Highlight the 'Console' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
4) Highlight the Diagnostics menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'ON'.
5) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
6) Highlight the 'PlaystationDrive' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
7) Highlight the 'Disc Speed' menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'FAST'.
8) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
9) Turn off your PS2.

10) This step is optional.......I blew into the main unit to loosen any dust out of it and then carefully used my shirt to wipe across the lens at the back of the drive. I'm not sure if this mattered or not. Since I did this in conjuction with the above steps I can't say if this is needed.
11) Insert the disc and turn the PS2 back on. The diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I was amazed! Mine loaded right up after several previous days of nothing.

12) I checked the settings after the initial load and the Diagnostics and Drive speed reset to normal so it must be a one time run thing. My game has loaded everytime since and I haven't had to re-do the settings at all.

I hope this works for you too!!

The laser is slipping on the worm gear that moves it. You will need to need to open your playstation and check to make sure the rails are properly greased so it is able to move without resistance. Also, check the tiny plastic arm(or metallic) to see if it has worn down.

If you hear a click click click...that is the sound of a dead laser. Or close to it.

Google playstation 2 repair and you should be able to find many free guides to assist you with your problem, if you are a tiny bit handy.
