Re: playstation 2 console

It may be that your PS2 is just too old. If not, there have been some problems similar to that. Customers buy a new PS2 and it wont play games. Just return it if you still have the store warranty and is not call Sony.

Reads ps2 games not ps3

If you have a copy of your receipt, you need to call Sony. They will send you a box and e-mail you a pdf with instructions. The lasers on these units are cheap. I have had 2 PS3's with disc read errors after 2 months of ownership.
If you don't have the receipt or if your unit is out of warranty it will cost $150.00 to fix-

your laser is weak or faulty.
Try using a laser head cleaning disk, or have a replacement laser fitted.

Unable to read new games but can read old, used games???

Things like this are usually caused by overlooked manufacturing discrepancies. It may be best to contact Sony with your system's model info, serial number, and date of manufacture. They may be able to help you under warranty. Greg Holiday

Playstation 2 wont read games

I used to have a ps2 and experienced this exact problem. In my case the lense was dirty, I opened my ps2 and VERY carefuly wiped my lens with methelated spirit (becareful, some methelated spirits that contain oils ment to prevent their consumption, these must be avoided!)then blew out the whole system with a hair dryer. Reassembled it and VWALA! it worked like it was bran new or even better!
