SOURCE: PS2 DVD not playing movies

If you have cleaned it with no results then the is a problem with the laser that reads the disks. These lasers have two adjustments on the bottom of them, one for CDs (PS1 games) and one for DVD5.gif (PS2 games). It is sometimes possible to adjust the DVD side and get it to work (there are many tutorials on the web on how to do this), but unfortunatly this is a temporary fix. The only real fix is to buy another laser. They are very abundant on the web (ebay1.gif is a great source for them too!). They are very reasonably priced now. Either way the unit will have to be disassembled. Hope this helps you out...

As for the 4 digit code, press "SELECT" when it asks you for your code. Then you enter "7444". It will then ask you to enter your new 4 digit access code. I recommend just making "0000". That way you just have to press "X" a bunch of times to get your movie to work..

SOURCE: My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games

You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

I need to update the software of my LG DV532how can i acieve that?


You dont need to update your software of your dvd,you just need to make sure your dvd usb supports arabic or just do this, Search your movie in google with SUBTITLE ex.Superman subtitle, then if you found your language download it, usually it is a .zip file when you download it ex Superman subtitle.zip you will need to extract that using winrar or any extract tool, after extracting the file should end with .srt ex. superman subtitle.srt, if it is, make a folder in your usb then copy the movie and subtitle in it (make sure the movies name and subtitle name are the same ex. superman.mp4 and superman.srt) then play it.

My ps2 won't read dvd movies. I put them in and nothing happens. even when i click the browse selection. It plays the games just fine, but doesn't seem to read the movies at all.


you need to have a modded ps2 to play pirated movies which are not official copies if you are using an original dvd copy then try keeping a weight say a small mobile charger or a small book on the ps2 if you are using the slim ps2

Won't read disk


have you tried different disks? I know that with the PS2, certain movies WILL NOT play on the sytem. Also, if it is happening with any disk, whether game or movie, then it is more than likely going to PS heaven. We just had this problem and there was no turning back.

Movies


About 99% of the problems where the PS2 stops playing movies, or certain games is a lens problem. The PS2 lenses are extremely sensitive and need to be cleaned regularly. I am betting you also are seeing "Disc Read Error" or "No Disc" on your screen when you enter the browser.

If this is so, you can get a "high quality" disc that cleans lens, or get a can of air that people use to clean keyboards. If you use the canned of air, you want to be sure to blow of the lens itself and not just blow air through the system, which would do no good.

What it is, is from it playing on any burnt movies so now it won't play factory burnt discs only home-made burnt discs, try the movie on a home-made burnt disc. If nothing you can get a DVD player for like 20 bucks at wal-mart.
