Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Have a PS2 version V4 and it will play cds but nothing else. Read online it could be a simple clock fix. I went and tried to change the clock and it is stuck. Could something be wrong with the battery or could something have disconnected. It isn't the laser because I don't get a disc read error, it just sits at the main screen if there is anything inside other than a cd. The orbs are all together also. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
It sounds like you PS2 needs a good internal cleaning. You can replace the battery and you will still have the same problem. I have repaired over 100 Playstations like yours and never did the battery thing work or help anything but keep the Parental password set. You do not always get Disc Read Error Message. I believe your Laser has a dirty lens. Clean it wil a Cotton swab lightly dampened with Alcohol. Then Dry the lens with the dry swab. i suggest you Clean the entire PS2 of all dust and lint. The orbs should fly around in a circle, not be all grouped. This indicates your have a motherboard data flow problem.
If your not comfortable with this , you need to Click on " Repair directory" at the bottom of the screen. Then click on "Video Game Consoles" and after that pick a Repair shop.
