Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

Playstation 2 is making high pitched noise every 15 seconds when using?

Was watching a dvd on the playstation and about 1/2 though the movie I noticed a high pitched noise every 15 seconds or so. It's sounds like the hard drive overworking itself maybe?

Re: playstation 2 is making high pitched noise every 15...

Eeek its either the laser noise which is dying(loosing stregnth) so go easy on it , or it can be the motor being unbalanced and slamming into the sides of the ps2. You can buy the laser on ebay with the laser number being on the underside of it

How do I watch a movie?

You should be able to put the DVD in the tray and should automatically recognize it and go into the movie.
What type of media are you trying to watch. PS2's cannot play blu-ray movies.

I have a PS2 Slim and it won't read discs. Every time I put a disc in it won't spin it will just go to the screen that says browser and system configuration. Please help me!!


1. DVD has lots of scratches
2. Regional Settings
3. Incorrect DVD settings for PS2
4. No/Incorrect Disc


1. Clean your discs well and avoid incurring scratches. Place it in
its box after use.
2. DVDs have encoding. They are encoded by regions. Thus, you cannot
play region 2 DVDs on a US Playstation mainly because the US
Playstation 2 can only read DVD that are encoded in Region 1 or
those DVDs that are encoded for all regions. Again, US PS2 are
region 1 capable. Japanese PS2s are Region 2 Capable.
3. There are a number of settings for the DVD playback of your
PS2. First is the rating of the DVD. If you want to watch a
rated R movie, make sure your PS2 allows viewing of R movies.
You'll be setting this during the first time that you'll be
watching a DVD. It's just the same as real theaters. It is also
protected with password so you need the person who set it up
the first time in order to bypass the rating settings.
4. Put in a DVD first and make sure that it is a Movie. And,
check #2.

My ps2 is broken

okay, are you saying you can't watch DvDs ? I would highly recomend not watching DvD's on PS2, especially HD movies. The PS2 does not have the hardrive to read most movies perfectly.
