Why my ps2 not play games only play video,But Before My Ps2 Play Video And games too, what is my ps2 problum plz help, my emai: bowram_brt@yahoo.com thanks


When your console does not read any disk, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only few CD, DVD. After more prolonged usage , often the PS start losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the PS, and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

before doing tis, contact Sony to check if the unit can be replaced or repaired by Sony, you find the number on the Console documentation.

My ps2 is broken. It dosen't play games it only plays movies. If anyone cn help me I would be happy to here from them.


Ps2's and Ps3's have separate readers for Dvd/Cd and games. Your game disk reader is likely broken or covered with something that prevents it from reading. Or, your "legal game reader" is broken and can't read the Ps2 certified bands on the disk. Yes, such a device exists to prevent copying and selling games.

Will play ps1 game but not ps2


The PS2 has two different lasers, one for CD games and one for DVD games. The tuning for each is independent. If DVD games are working and CD games are not (backups or originals, PS1 or PS2) and cleaning the CD laser doesn't work and everything's connected together well then you may need to tune/align the CD laser. Just go to Lycos.com and type in 'PS2 laser alignment'. My favorite is the one from Sweden.

My PS2 Slim plays music, black and blue discs, but doesn't play silver discs nor DVDs.


Is this a new problem or has your PS2 always had this issue? You cannot adjust the laser at all and are likely to damage it if you try, you can however clean the laser lens with a CD/DVD cleaning disk and you'd be surprised how often this resolves disk read issues. Some of these units did have a production fault that prevented them from reading DVD's, if your PS2 has had this fault since new and/or is under 12 months old you could probably have had it repaired/replaced by Sony but by opening it you will have invalidated you're warranty.
