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 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.

Disk read errors

I have the same model, What could be going wrong is your Power Callibration for the Laser might be off (Look on Youtube for Repairs on how to fix this) The site is : Search "PS2 Repairs" :)
