Your PS2 laser is wearing out. When the laser starts to go, first games will skip... then eventually the PS2 will stop reading DVDs altogether. If you keep using it to read CDs, it will eventually stop reading those too and the laser will die altogether. Here's a website that will help you identify your PS2 model, show you how to replace the laser, and they sell parts and do repairs too

Step1.
Turn on your PlayStation 2.

Step 2.
Open the disc tray and place the DVD movie in as you would a game.

Step 3.
Close the disc tray and wait for the DVD movie to begin playing.

Step 4.
Press the select button during the movie to open the options menu. Use the options menu as you would a conventional DVD player (play, pause, skip, ect.).

Step 5.
Turn your PlayStation 2 off when you are done viewing the DVD.

This is a relatively common error when it comes to the PS2. You are suffering from a bad disc drive. You might need it replaced.

PS2 wont play DVD movies!


Hi. It seems that you might have an old version of the PS2.

The original PS2's had a problem with the laser that read CDs and DVDs, often failing, creating problems with reading DVDs and in rare cases, CDs.

Unfortunately, the class action lawsuit filed against Sony is too old to get yours fixed for free, but there are ways to attempt to fix the laser yourself, if you would rather not send it in to Sony.

your PS2 will not play U.K. PS2 games/dvds.
PS2s are region specific.
