PS2 HELP stuck on browser config BUT reads a disc BUT wont actualy let me play it...

PS2 has a special laser that reads DVD or CD media differently. It can be "bad" in a way that some work and others don't. Cost of laser replacement is too high, buy a cheap core unit and game on.

I have a playstation 2 slim here. It wont spin the

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.

How to fix a slim ps2 when the disc wont spin it turns on and just goes straight to the browser menu its the slim version ceramic white one i tried going into it and connecting the ribbons inside and still...

Have you tried cleaning the lens? using a DVD disc cleaner or a cotton bud and some methylated spirits.
If that doesnt fix it the lens is knackered, common fault on PS2 consoles.

My PS2 will play the games for a little then they will freeze.

try using a q-tip with rubbing alcohol to clean the lens of the laser.the lens is exposed on the slim versions.just dip the q-tip in the alcohol and rub the lens firmly in a circular motion.use the dry side of the q-tip to dry the lens

ps2 can play dvds but xbox needs a store bought xbox dvd remote to play dvds
the ps2 slim and the ps2 normal have a lot in common so thwere is not much difference, but the slim has a fliptop lid and the fat ps2 has a open and shut slide drive.If I were you I would get the slim because it is the only one you can get brand new nowadays. The xbox may have halo 1 and 2 but sometimes there are freezes on certain xboxes.

Ps2 slim madden 08 lag?

yeah, that happens on mine sometimes. IT happens on both the ps2 regular and my madden 07 for psp. I thin it's probably just trying to do too much at once, and slows down because the processor isn't powerful enough.
