My ps2 scph-70012 runs only sony disks , i cant run copied disks of my friends ..... can u help me ???... i just want to run copied disks ..


You won't be able to play any pirated games without installing a mod chip in your ps2 or without having some sort of software/codebreaker running from a USB drive attached to the ps2. Software such as Swap Magic (you can google it) and a flip/slide tool (a plastic card will do) will allow you to do this but it is illegal and I don't recommend it.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

I have a ps2 model # SCPH-70012. Its old n i got it from a pawn shop. So im guessig the warranty is up on it. It reads all audio and my claening disc... But no dvds or ps2 silver back games. Please help....


Maybe this will help. If u have no fear of opening ur ps2 (Google it), use a damp q-tip & gently clean the laser lens. If that dosen't work then the lens is about to go (it's to weak to read certain discs).

your lense is more than likely defragmented jacob and you should never take any system apart okay so what you wanna do is if your warrenty is still in effect dont tell sony you took it apart just send it in for a refurbisment if it isnt you need to look around online for a ps2 slim lense okay

My ps2 reads all other games except guitar hero world tour.


To all you guys having this problem with PS2 - I bought World Tour for my brother and put it in this morning. It worked the 1st time we put it on, but we restarted the game because both guitars weren't connected, and it would NOT work after that (we have an old fat PS2 by the way). After reading online, I found out this disc is a Dual Layered DVD, and can cause problems reading it

Here's what I did to fix it - I took out all 8 screws on the bottom of the PS2, popped the case off, and then took out the 2 tiny screws for the DVD drive. After taking that case off, you can see the laser lens. All I did was clean it with an alcohol-soaked Q-tip, then buffed it clean, and after turning the game back on - it works fine! We're so pumped over here, and to anyone else having the problem, I bet this will fix it! Good luck!

Model 50001 fat ps2 cleaned the lens adjusted the arm...


If your lens is not moving up and down the track at all even in bootup then sounds like your motor is fried. What i'm referring to is this:

You can find similar parts like this .::HERE::.

To verify this, open your dvdrom tray. Power off the PS2 via the swtich on the back of the PS2 (thus leaving the dvdrom tray open) Tare down your PS2 and remove the four screws on the top of your DVD-ROM unit (if this is a fat model, if it's a slimline model you'll have to remove that whole platic piece covering the unit itself) You may have to do some research on this next part (via google) but remove your DVD-ROM tray so you can see the guts of the DVD-ROM. Then power on your PS2. And ask yourself the following questions as you observe.

1.) Does the lens move at all even right after bootup?

2.) Is the siver bar part of the motor(pictured above) turning at all to make it move?

If it doesn't turn at all then there is your problem. If it does turn, and the lens doesn't move at all then the ribbon cable that connects the lens to the board maybe damaged or the lens itself is damaged.

Hope that helps

PS2 Modded Trouble Reading DVDr's


Your DVD potentiometer pot on the back of the PS2 laser lens needs to be readjusted. Some people will try to tell you it's out of alignment but if that was the case it would not read CD's. Some people will try to tell you the laser lens is bad. If that was the case it would not read CD's. On the back of the laser lens are two potentiometer pots. In english? Two lil screws that are turnable. One controls the power of the DVD laser one controls the power of the CD laser.

http://www.cyber-mag.com/station/laserV9.htm

That link will give you pretty lil pictures of what i'm talking about :)

In a nut shell the story goes like this folks. If your PS2 won't read certain game DVD's that are of a certain color or if it all of a sudden mysteriously fails to read games it once read but will play cd's just fine, the voltage of the laser for DVD's is not set correctly. (this does needs manual tweeking from time to time if you take your ps2 and move it around alot or if you take it over to friends houses etc etc. Basicly alot of movment in general can take this out of alignment. Even keeping the PS2 on it's side could theoreticly (just my opinion) based on gravitational pull, unbalance the potentiometer.

RESOLUTION:

Step 1 identify your PS2 version:


Version 1 - SCPH-30001, 10 screws on bottom of case, serial no. starts with "U1"
Version 2 - SCPH-30001, 10 screws on bottom of case, serial no. starts with "U0"
Version 3 - SCPH-30001, 10 screws on bottom of case, serial no. starts with "U2"
Version 4 - SCPH-30000, 30001, 35001, 30002, 35002, 30003, 35003, 30004, or 35004, 8 screws on bottom of case

NOTE: Version 4 has 2 varieties of motherboard: Gap/No Gap, the difference between v4 "Gap" and v4 "No Gap" is the "Gap" is there's a spot in the center of bios chip where each side lacks solder points.

Version 5 - SCPH-30000R, 30001R, 30002R, 30003R, 30004R, or 30006R. Also, some SCPH-30000, 30001, 30002, 30003, and 30004 models have a V5/V6

NOTE: Version 5 & 6 - the difference between these two versions is one of the connectors in the corner.

Version 7 - SCPH-39000, 39001, 39002, 39003, 39004, 39008 or 37000
Version 8 - Only in Japanese consoles. SCPH-39000, or, SCPH-39006 (GH-022 BIOS 090)
Version 9 - if you have SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003, 50004, 50006, or 50007 you have a v9 or v10 board.
Version 10 - SCPH-5000x, with date code "3D" to the right and below the serial number on the back of the console. (GH-026 board)

NOTE: To know if its a v9/v10 start up PS2 with no game in it ,press triangle and check dvd driver version dvd ver 3.00 = v9 & dvd ver 3.02 = v10.

If your model # is SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003 or 50004 AND if you can find a small ''a'' under the SCPH number or have DATECODE "3C" you have a V9 PS2 main board. (GH-026 board).

If your model # is SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003 or 50004 AND if you can find DATE CODE "3D" as shown below, you have a V10 PS2 main board. (GH-026 board).

Version 12 - The new slimline PS2 consoles are referred to as PSTwo here, but elsewhere they are also known as "v12" units... their numbers are SCPH-70011/SCPH-70012, and also SCPH-70004 CB (Belgium).

Step 2 use either google or the link above. If you're using google your keyword search will be something like "ps2 v12 laser lens adjustment" *replace v12 with your ps2 model.

In either case navigate to the site and follow instructions to set the pots back to their factory default settings.

Ps2 slim scph-70012


yes there is. its already built inside and blows to the rear right opening of the unit, you just wont feel it at first coz its too weak.
anyways, there's a 'usb fan' sold separately for the slimline and the fat one, but i'm not satisfied with its output either...so i just made my own cooling...
