Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Hi i can play old ps games and blue ps2 games but not new ps2 games that are silver and no dvd will play
This is a common problem with the PS2 - the laser head is out of alignment.
This is not a problem that a novice should try to fix. In most cases I your best solution is to take the PS2 to a local repair shop - many TV repair shops also repair PS2's, and this is a very common problem that they will be aware of and familiar with.
The upside of taking it to the repair shop is that they will give a limited warranty on the repair so that if the problem pops up again (that happens often too) you can take it back and have them fix it again for free. The downside is that many shops charge you more to repair this than it would cost to purchase a used and working unit on EBay...
If you feel confident in your ability to do the repair yourself, please consult this website for step by step instructions:
The instructions on this site are excellent - I have used this tutorial myself to correct this problem on PS2's. One small point that I want to add - you will be adjusting the height of a laser. Do NOT look into the laser with it turned on! Be sure to place the laser cover back in its slot prior to turning the unit on to test it.
