I have a modified ps2 I think it's one of the earlier models. It can read most discs fine but I recently tried playing a backup copy of MGS 2 and it load to playstatin 2 screen and then goes back to the...

It is unlikely to be dirty.Some people may recommend the solution and cloth to clean the laser however I do not as it really is a waste of money.The compartment is pretty well sealed when closed.If the game which does not work is a re-written game,it is probably just that game since most of the others work fine.If the laser eye were bad,no games would work.Scratches in game discs will cause problems as will non-Sony accessories.You can try to find a good copy at gamestop or similar stores.If they are far away you can try Amazon.Look for people with a good rating which is normally mid 90% ish and many rating reviews,perhaps a couple thousand.I have done it a few times with no problems.You should never stick anything in the game try or compartment other than a game as it will do more harm than good.I worked on Nintendos for a few years at an authorized shop but most game systems are relatively similar.I also posted some good video console and accessories information on my profile and it should be free information and quite informative.Good luck and game on!

Was downoading playstatin update and screen went dark and now cannot get a picture....screen reads no signal


You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

If after trying the above options and it still does not solve the problem, then maybe the lens is weak and that's why it cannot read any disc.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

Not recognizing disk

My PS2 always does that now. Just make sure it's reading the disc in the System Browser, and it'll play fine.

Disc read error

Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.
