SOURCE: my ps2 wont load games

hi Melissa Pat,

You must have a Slim model, as only slim models are aggrevating about adjusting and clenaing. If not take a Magnifying glass or Jewelers Loupe to look at the laser lens extremely close.Sometimes it takes a good bit to get it clear.

SOURCE: do I need to clean the laser lens manually or replace something

Lens cleaners are too abrasive and do not work properly. to clean your laser it is best to strip down your 360, remove the dvd drive top cover and get a cotton earbud, spit on it and then very carefully with a clockwise rotating motion clean the lens this way. you may also need to re-align the laser to read 280-300 ohms as by the sound of it the laser might be set too high. we can offer a repair or if you want to have a go just pm us and we will try to help you step by step.

SOURCE: my wii wont play the disc

You can go on the nintendo website or call their help center. There is a specific problem with some Wii models that won't allow the consoles to read "dual discs" (Smash bro). I was so frustrated, I would put the disc in and it would come up with "Error". If you do to the website it will give you specific instructions on what to do to handle the problem. You will have to ship it in but they will pay for all shipping charges. I sent mine in and didn't expect it to get back very fast but was out for about 1wk. that included shipping time both ways. It was very fast and will now read the Smash Bro. disc.

SOURCE: xbox wont read disc

The drive is bad, you will have to send it in for repair or replace the drive with a replacement from the store. You did not mention how old this is but they did extend the warranty on some machines because of this type of problem. have you tried logging on to xbox live to see if there is an update for your machine just from the control panal?

SOURCE: when i try starting a game it says unrecognized

Are you under warranty? Eventually your drive is going to fail. This is usually the first sign assuming your disc is fine.

Game has error, says to consult Wii operations manual

It's most likely the disc that is causing trouble. If all of your other games work, it the game you bought. I had the same problem with MySims Party, I went to the store where I bought it, they gave me a new disc, which worked fine.

Wont play xbox game disc

Make sure the disc is clean, if its clean, and works in another 360. Disassemble the 360, open the dvd drive up, shoot some canned air in there but NOT on the laser, clean the laser with some rubbing alchol of at least 91% and a q-tip then put it back together if this doesn't work you will need to buy a replacement laser off of ebay. And here is a link on how to disassemble the 360: Just make sure to stop when you've gotten to the part about the DVD drive, then disconnect the DVD drive, and take it apart. Best of luck.

I bought a ps2 game on ebay and it wont work, the seller is from japan, how can i tell if my game can only be played on japan ps2

The disc only works within certain regions. There is no specific way that you can tell unless the language on the disc is in Japanese. Otherwise you will have to resell it or get a Japanese PS2

Japanese game wont play on ps2 slimline!

if its in a region lock, its impossible to be played on a American PS2, if your PS2 is modded it will read any region locked discs, the only possible solution is to buy a Japanese Version PS2
