Re: PS2 wont play games

Call sony tech support
A few things could have happen. Your system could have been dropped, kicked around, or smack one way or another. Causing a wire to become loose, or knocked off where it should be. Your power supply also could be warn out, or some way, lost power. Your best bet is to call 1-800-345-SONY. Tell them what is going on. They will then work with you to try and get your system working. If you can't fix it over the phone, and your PS2 is still under warranty, then they will take the system in, and fix it for you. If your PS2 isn't under waranty, then still call them. They will still work with you, and they will take in your PS2 for a fix. Sometimes it won't even cost you anything, and other times, it might be a small fee. Just give them a call, that is your best bet!

I can only play some games on my ps2 i cant play any of the Need for speed games. i tried deleting old saved files dealing with nfs and my system configuration. Still wont work. Any other ideas to get...

If you have the original PlayStation 2 console, there was a problem with it playing some of the newer games released for the ps2 after the slim was released. You can try using a laser lens cleaner to clean the laser, but the original ps2 just simply won't play some games.

this solution usually works after your slim PS2 shocked you when you touched the reset button, but you can try it-- it's from the manual:

1. unplug the PS2
2. wait for 1 minute
3. plug in PS2

hope this helps :D

Guitar hereo wont work on slimline ps2

I had the same issue (since Christmas).  Today it was rainy, so I spent some time with kids and here is what worked for me
Here's what I did to fix the same problem on my PS2 (Slim model # SCPH-70012). This should work for all models of PS2's. (Slim or Fat). Sony says all models can read a dual layer disc.

1) Start up the PS2 with no disc in it.
2) Highlight the 'Browser' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
3) Highlight the 'Console' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
4) Highlight the 'Diagnostics' menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'ON'.
5) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
6) Highlight the 'PlaystationDrive' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
7) Highlight the 'Disc Speed' menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'FAST'.
8) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
9) Turn off your PS2.

10) Insert the disc and turn the PS2 back on. The diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I was amazed! Mine loaded right up after several previous days of nothing.

11) I checked the settings after the initial load and the Diagnostics and Drive speed reset to normal so it must be a one time run thing. My game has loaded everytime since and I haven't had to re-do the settings at all.

I hope this works for you too!!
