My ps2 wont read silver back disks. how do you fix it


Hi there!
When your PS2 starts to have problems reading silver backed discs you could be experiencing one of 2 different problems:
  1. Your laser or disc is dirty (clean off your disc with a soft cotton cloth, and clean the laser in your PS2 with a cd drive cleaning cd)
  2. The laser in your PS2 is going, you will need to take it into a shop to have it repaired, replace the laser or disc drive yourself (this will void the warranty if you have one) or get a new or different PS2.
Hope this helps!

Can't play dual layered disk in playstation slim silver


I know, this is very annoying. Mine is SCPH-79001.
Just put in the game like you would any game (that would read) and you should hear a few ticks. Turn the ps2 horizontly with the front facing you. And whenever you hear a tick, just tap it against you knee, then you should hear it spinning.

My ps2 wouldn't read GH world tour or metallica, but know it works. Hope I helped

I was trying to play a silver ps2 game on my slim ps2 and it wouldn't load. Said cannot read disk. I inserted another silver-backed game and it read it fine. I switched over to the first one and it too...


Im going to assume the disk isnt dirty or damaged? It could be the lens, very common problem that the PS2 had. There are plenty of guides (video ones on websites like Youtube) that show you how to clean/fix it.

My ps2 has a problem reading certain games but works with others


The PS2 has always had trouble with certain discs. And yes you can often tell by the "color". RE4 although from ancient was pre PS3 and basically some of the newer games wont work on the "old" PS2's as well. Partially due to the fact they are a bit dirtier and worn out and cant read the faster speeds as well. You might want to consider purchasing a "new" PS2 ($99) that wont have the same problem.

My playstation dont read disk


Buy a new ps2 they are cheap at pawnshops or if your technically inclined buy a new laser or try and fiddle with yours to see if you can get it to work again.

Ps2 wont read discs and asks for format disc


I can guess that the games you are trying to play have a Blue underneath and not silver. This was a big problem with my sons disks too using the older version of the ps2. We managed to mess about with some of the settings and changed the rgb setting to the other option (can't remember what that was now...sorry) and got some of them to work, but not for long. When the new games come out now they expect you to have the slimline ps2 and unfortunalty won't work on the older model. So to fix this problem I just bought a new one.

Disk read


This may be caused by the discs you are trying to read are Dual-Layer format DVD's. Your best bet would be to get in contact with Sony.
