The problem, generally is the laser motor, that is old or worn.
Unless you know of an electrical engineer, who won't charge the earth for the repair, It's now just ornamental.
Another major problem with these particular 'slim line' consoles, is that they heat up too much.
There isn't a sufficient air flow to cool the processor.
Good luck with that.

My ps2 has no color when im play games but i can watch DVD's with no problems


Hi, these are reasons or problems that can affect ps2 color.

Its the model games your downloading. the unloaded didn't upload it right.
The problem would have to be your PS2. When you modded it, the PS2 must have had something changed in it.
That thing that you changed may not allow it to read the color on certain PS2 games. You either have to buy a new PS2, or figure out what you did wrong when you modded it.

its something with the chip u used... i did the same thing and replaced it and im working fine now... u should think about getting magic swap... requires no modding to play station and i hear from people that it works well

The thing in the back that hooks up to the back of the tv or cable connection needs to be changed

This may sound stupid and completely obvious, but mine occasionally play without color as well. Try jiggling the RGB cable from the back of the console.

because its the way they made them the only difference is the type of film they use other tha that game play is still the same

go to game stop or a game shop 4 them to fix or it might be that your psp had been dropped or something that happened to it .

Hope it helps.

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17


Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

PS2 burns rings on every game I put in it, and game won't play after that!


You've got a bad PS2. There is a problem with either the laser or the Disc Drive. I would not suggest playing any more games in the PS2 as it will ruin them all. Get a new PS2 or make Sony Fix it.

For PS2 emulation: You can play by using PCSX2 0.9.5 latest version, but your pc must be strong enough to hold it. You can download it at www.pcsx2.net.

You need the game to use the emulator. Also understand you need a powerful computer to run these games on your computer.

Why does the ps3 box say you cannot play ps2 games


the reason why ps2 games won't work is bacause the lasers are different. the ps3 has a blue-ray laser while the ps2 hasn an infrared laser.
i don't want to get too technical, but basically the wavelenghts of the lasers are different, the blue-ray has a shorter wavelenght than the other, so it can't play the ps2 games and the ps3 games use a different type of disk.
