Re: gamesharkv2 not working on my ps2

Well you have to run it through a PS2 broadband connector for on line use.. Thats most likely your problem ..
The Tech phone# For MadCatz is (800)-659-2287
The Toll Free # is (800)-831-1442
they are open mon-fri
From all i have read on the game shark you have to be on-line with your PS2 in order for it to work.

I have a playstation2 console that will not recognize my gameshark2 disc as a ps2 disc can someone help the gameshark disc is formatted for ps2

i was having a similar problem with a brand new v.2.2 gameshark(blue bottom).
Then i decided to stand m system vertically instead of horizontally and it's been working fine since i put it vertically.

I also try to reset your ps2 with the gs2 disk still in the tray a couple of times and see what happens.....

and does all of your GS2 disk got scratches?

and by the ways, many ps2 version, like version 4 with the R after or version 5 and up will need GS2 version 1.9A / 1.9B / 1.9C / 1.9D or 2.0 and above to be booting with those ps2 version....

but i know GS2 version 2.1 will work with every new ps2 version.....

Mine does that sometimes.I got it on Ebay for just a few dollars. I think it does that when there isn't a good connection between the game/gameshark/N64. I always use the "hot breath" method - breathe on the slots of both the gameshark and game, as if you were trying to warm up your hands in wintertime, or fog up a mirror. It might take a couple of tries, but it usually works.
If that fails, try cleaning the slots of the gameshark and game with a Q-tip - there can be a lot of corrosion on the copper connections - but don't use any kind of cleaning agent, just rub at it. The Q-tip will probably end up being gray or black. Then try it again.
Good luck!

Gameshark is a 3rd party disk and sometimes depend how the disk was made.The laser inside is calibrate to read the format specified from the manufacture (SONY) and quite few time the laser ned to be adjusted a little bit to make work but i do suggest to try another disk if still doing the same .The reading issue is a common problem for ps2.If your machine is a slim one i suggest to replace laser since are not expensive and can give more boost to your game

Ah that happens to me. I threw mine at the wall, and then it worked. (True Story). And I get the awful screetching noise too. I think it has something to do with the "Fatty PS2s" Do you have a fatty PS2?
