    I went out and rented a new game, came home, and tried to put it into my slim PS2 which was working the last time I tried to play it (probably about a month ago) and it won't work.

    It powers up, the green light comes on, you hear it, the screen comes on and then it goes directly to the browser / system confinguration screen. I've tried using other games and the same thing happens. I unplugged all the wires and plugged them in again. I blew out the game console with a can of air. I'm thinking it's a lost cause and I should just toss it and sell the games and accessories on ebay and try to by a PS3 or Wii. Anyone have any suggestions on how I can try to fix this? I'm not very good with electronics so I doubt I could take it apart and fix it myself. Thanks.

Hi i need more info when you put the game in and close draw does it load the game or does it just goto browser like their is no game in if this is the case then the only thing you can try is buying a lense cleaner and run this through your ps2 if this dont solve your problem then the chances are you will need the laser replacing you can get these off well known auction site but the problem is you will need the info on how to calibrate the new laser.
Let me know what actually happens then i can assist you further

Is that the only disc you seem to be having the problem with?? If so try getting the disc repair kit and using that. I had the same problem with mine but it was only some of the discs. The ps2 slim can be very sensitive and even the slightest defect in a disc will cause it not to recognize there is even a disc there.

The lens maybe dirty or damage. Open your ps2 console and get a soft brush and clean the lens. If you are afraid to open it try to buy some dvd lens cleaner cd.

When you say it goes "blank" does that mean it stays on the browser screen, or the whole screen goes dark ? You can email me directly at aztech at aol dot com.

New game won't play.

the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
