Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

I was trying to play a silver ps2 game on my slim ps2 and it wouldn't load. Said cannot read disk. I inserted another silver-backed game and it read it fine. I switched over to the first one and it too worked after this. Any idea what the problem is?

    No, there is nothing wrong with the disk. Some games work fine, while others require a tremendous amount of effort to get them to read... Not sure why they wouldn't all have issues?

Im going to assume the disk isnt dirty or damaged? It could be the lens, very common problem that the PS2 had. There are plenty of guides (video ones on websites like Youtube) that show you how to clean/fix it.

A silver slim ps2 is unable to play certain games


Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)

I cannot play my dvd game on my ps2 , but my friends can play my dvd game on his ps2


Fat and Slim PS2's generally have different playability with disks. a slim, for example, does not want to play old blue-backed disks, though it will easily read PSX black backs. I'll need more information on the disk and the PS2 to give a complete answer.

When I go to play a game on my ps2 and put the game in the ps2 eye prevents the disk from spinning I have the newer ps2 that is slim the eye that reads the disk keeps sliding up and the disk does not get...


Does this happen to all of your Discs? If you know someone who also has a PS2, try to run your discs first on that PS2...If they worked, then probably either the lens of your PS2 needs to be replaced, or it only needs cleaning. Or it is also possible that your disc isn't inserted on the disc tray properly...and by "inserted properly " on the tray I mean is to make sure that the 3 pins on the spinner of your PS2 are sticking out of the hole on the DVD and thus gripping the disc...

Read Error (With FFX game)


Hi Raven, Its sounds like you have a PS2 Slim with a melted Laser. What you will find is that the Slim will only read CD's, CDR's, PS1 Games, Blue back PS2 games and DVD's. I can repair this for $35 plus shipping to and from The Playstation Clinic in Fountain Inn, SC. The webpage is www.playstationclinic.com If you do not have a Slim, you either have dirty disc, or Lens. You may have left some fibers from the Q-tip across or around the lens.

My PS2 Slim plays music, black and blue discs, but doesn't play silver discs nor DVDs.


Is this a new problem or has your PS2 always had this issue? You cannot adjust the laser at all and are likely to damage it if you try, you can however clean the laser lens with a CD/DVD cleaning disk and you'd be surprised how often this resolves disk read issues. Some of these units did have a production fault that prevented them from reading DVD's, if your PS2 has had this fault since new and/or is under 12 months old you could probably have had it repaired/replaced by Sony but by opening it you will have invalidated you're warranty.
