Re: Sony Ps2

This happens probably because you are using scratched discs. What happens is when you put them into the system, the laser pretty much destroys itself trying to read the scratches. Now about fixing it...every once in a while you'll find someone who does stuff like this, but for the most part Sony is the only one.

When disc is put in system goes to "browser/ sys

Depending on how long its been since you ran a cd lens cleaner.

The insides of your PS2 are just dirty.

You can pick up a disk cleaner for cd/dvd lenses at walmart or target cheaply.

Run it several times, and you will be surprised at how much better the PS2 reads disks.

Not recognizing disk

My PS2 always does that now. Just make sure it's reading the disc in the System Browser, and it'll play fine.

Chipped PS2 suddenly stopped reading

That is strange how the boot-up sequence can change. When You bought it, it sounds like it got mod-chipped when you bought it. if are one on the techy side of life then you can open your ps2 and look for one (google mod chip). Also the chance of one being there is higher because it can play copied games. Even though you bought it with the copied games, 1) copied games are illegal, and , 2) PS2's shouldn't be able to play copied games cause it wasn.t designed too.

I hope i helped,

Playstation 2 Disc Read Error

After extensive research on this subject and working on several Playstation II systems. I found out the reason your system will play only blue disks and not silver is a alignment problem with the laser. It could be tilted or set to high or low. The quickest solution is to call Sony and get a new laser with the shuttle. If i am not mistaken it cost 50.00 and just go to the playstation site select support and it will explain in full detail how to take your system apart and replace the laser and shuttle.

Won't load or play disc or dvd

It's a well known fact PS2's had a cheap lazer fitted to them, that's why when it gets chiped to play copy games, not long after it starts playing up. The lazer may just need aligning, purchase a cd/dvd cleaning cd rom as these can check audio, lazer alignment and clean the lens.
