Unable to read god of war II

I have a slim model scph-75001 its only about 18 months old. I rutinely use a lens cleaner to keep the lens clean and all my games load fine except I just purchased god of war II and this game will not load at all. I've tried return exchange as to no avail, Im still having the same problem. Now some of my DvD's wont load either. so what should i do?

Some ps2 models have defective lens coils that wont properly focus the lazer beam on the disc ive had this happen to me before, but to fix it, it requires you to replace the reader head. I can walk you through it, but only if you are comfortable in dissassembling/reassembling the ps2 with the chance of perminately harming your ps2 or yourself. Id advise you to take it to a repair shop for fixing.

Ps2 freezing games


I was experiencing the same problem on my ps2 slim scph-90004. When I put a game in my ps2 it loads but after some time it just freezes at the same spot.I went to many shops but they dont recognize my problem.Then i open my ps2 slim (Warning:Opening of ps2 my void your warranty) and saw the lens which was not adjusted. SO,if you are experiencing the same problem then use the above method(For slim only).Look at the rod near the lens which has two small clips on it. Open the screws on the clips and take out your ps2 lens.Clean it with a cotton.Set the lens in some different position and load your games .

Ps2 Problem Reading Disc


I had the same problem with my PS2 (big version) It would not load games consistently, and it would freeze ALL THE TIME. I turned it on its side (propped it up with books, lol) and it performed better (50% better) but it would still freeze. I tried cleaning the lens to no avail. Clean the lens with a lens cleaner, blow out any dust. No idea what else to do other than realigning the laser or sending it in under warranty. Since neither of those options would cost less than buying a whole new console, I would recommend finding a slim (small version) PS2 or if you already have the "slim" Just buy another one.

Ps3 wont load any games


Wow, someone who tried a lens cleaner first before asking, cool!!!
Alright, it still sounds like it might be the laser lens, but the dust is probably built up a bit more than a lens cleaner can deal with. This happens, and it sucks. But seeing as both your systems are still fairly new, they should also both still be under warranty, Contact sony and see about getting them repaired. Your only other option would be to open the cases and clean the lens' by hand with a Q-tip and some Iso Alcohol VERY CAREFULLY.

Which multitap do I buy?


There were two versions of the multi-tap made; one for the original fat PS2 and a smaller version made for the slim. The two versions are incompatible with the other PS2. If you have the original multi-tap connected to the slim, it should throw out the 'controller disconnected' message when you boot up. The slim version of the multi-tap should have a sticker on the bottom saying 'only works with models SCPH-70000, SCPH-75001, SCPH-75002'.

Other than the sports games, I don't recall any titles that allow more than two players anyway.

Our Playstation 2 Slim Model will no longer load games. We've tried many different games, the auto diagnostic feature does nothing, and when we put in a game it will not advance past the Main Menu. It's...


I fixed the problem myself by going to YouTube and playing a video that showed me how to open the unit safely. When I opened the PS 2 Slim Model, I discovered that the threaded rod that moves the lens had been jarred out of place (I was later told by my son that he had knocked the unit off the table). I carefully put the end of the rod back into place and put the unit back together. It works like a dream now, and my son thinks his mother is a genius. For those who are experiencing the problem of not loading past main menu, and especially if you are experiencing a clicking noise, I would definitely recommend checking out the laser drive rod. Good luck.

Disc reading error


Open the Case.
Clean the lens with Q-tip and Alcohol. This is only if you have the SCPH-30000 through 5000X models. If you have the Slim Ps2 do not use Alcohol on the lens. Use Glass cleaner instead.
