    B7BBQ- Thanks for your help. I cleaned the games that my son used the most and they were scratched up and dirty. I put in a clean disc and it worked fine. Thanks again for your advise.

    I have a brand new system and i moved the console from downstairs to upstairs to play and now it doesn't even attempt to play games. It goes right to the browser. None of my discs are scratched, they are brand new.

    When I put in a new game, the system goes straight to the browser. This "new game" has been played only 2 times but we did clean it eventhough there were not scratches. We have spent hours trying to make this playstation work. As you know, these things aren't cheap. Does this mean we have to buy a new one for our kids??? Please help. Thanks

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.

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

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.
