Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Config/browers shows on ONE game

I recently bought a PS2 X-Men game and played it with no problems until yesterday. I cleaned both the disc and the machine (it reads all the other games perfectly). All that happens is the Config/brower shows and can't read disc. The disc is fairly new, as I said, and has no scratches or dirt on it (clean as a whistle). What on earth could be the problem? As I mentioned, all my other games are perfectly fine in the same machine.

Thanking you in advance for any help you might be able to provide regarding this matter.

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.

My PS2 is not loading Grand Turirsmo 4!


If your PS2 works fine with most of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them too on your PS2:
  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:6e4cb56.jpg
  3. Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like9d90dc8.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear likedd8fb1a.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press X button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the game loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens:
Thank you and Good Luck!

It dont work win i put a game in and on every game i put in


Check the discs. Or try cleaning the PS2, it's pretty risky, but they have videos on YouTube. Cleaning it usually solves the problem, it helped me out.

Chipped PS2 suddenly stopped reading


Hmmmmm...
That is strange how the boot-up sequence can change. When You bought it, it sounds like it got mod-chipped when you bought it. if are one on the techy side of life then you can open your ps2 and look for one (google mod chip). Also the chance of one being there is higher because it can play copied games. Even though you bought it with the copied games, 1) copied games are illegal, and , 2) PS2's shouldn't be able to play copied games cause it wasn.t designed too.

I hope i helped,

Ps2 not reading disc.


Hi,

Theres a high chance that your laser simply broke. You should let someone with solder experience let replace the PS2 laser.
You can buy the laser on websites like this one: http://www.consoleparts4u.co.uk

Ps2 not reading disc.


First you need to define what it IS and IS NOT reading. You'll need to run some tests.

Test 1: use a regular music CD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and put that into your ps2 and see if it starts playing it.

Test 2: insert a regular DVD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and try to play that.

If neither will play then it is one of two things. Your laser lens is out of alignment, or your laser lens is damaged.

If one plays but not the other, it is the potentiometer pots on the back of the PS2 lens that need adjusting. You can read more about that on one of my other posts ::.HERE.::
