Ps2 requries format cd

Yes, the reason for that is because you bought a game from another country it has to run through a format CD for that country (which you can find on the web) to format your PlayStation 2 to play foreign games. I hope this helps or solves!

Make sure you are using the right disk. It must be Playstation 3 format software not a Xbox game. If you are still having difficulties playing the game you might need to send it in for repairs.

Ps2 wont read discs and asks for format disc

I can guess that the games you are trying to play have a Blue underneath and not silver. This was a big problem with my sons disks too using the older version of the ps2. We managed to mess about with some of the settings and changed the rgb setting to the other option (can't remember what that was now...sorry) and got some of them to work, but not for long. When the new games come out now they expect you to have the slimline ps2 and unfortunalty won't work on the older model. So to fix this problem I just bought a new one.

The game wont read any disc when i insert the game it wont display it. Also is there anyway to repair this my self i.e. replace the hard drive with one of my own?

I contacted Sony, with a proof of purchase the repair service is free of charge. They will send me a box in the mail to return the console in. It was stated that this will take 7-10 working days to complete.

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc

Hi Elvis,

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
