Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

PS2 Reset button stays Red and won't change.

I need help. Last night, I was trying to load up some of my games, and they wouldn't work, at all. (Old FF7 game, etc.) I had decided it was probably time to clean out the PS2 anyway, so i opened it up to clean the lens etc, and I guessed as I opened it, the Power ribbon came out. So trying to figure out how get the ribbon to stay inside for hours, I finally got it taped inside.

But now, I plugged the power cord back into the PS2, and now only the Red light comes on. I assume something blew out, but it was working fine last night.

Please help!

My PS2 is not loading Grand Turirsmo 4!


If your PS2 works fine with most of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them too on your PS2:
  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:6e4cb56.jpg
  3. Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like9d90dc8.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear likedd8fb1a.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press X button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the game loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens:
Thank you and Good Luck!

My Slim Ps2 crashed!!


hi is your ps2 the one where the lid lifts up to put the disk in if so their can sometimes be a problem with switch on the lid when you press the button to load the game push down on the lid and hold it down and if this is the problem then the game will load.
My ps2 has this problem and i have to put books or bottle of somekind on the lid to keep the lid pressed down far enough so that the switch works and loads the game.

Also you could try cleaning the laser lense you can buy a lense cleaning disk and that will clean it for you and if thats the problem as moving it might have caused the dust to move inside a bit affecting the laser have a go at these ideas then get back to me ok
