If it has not suffered any blows or impacts, then all you need to do is simply clean you lens. Hoe you do this is you can either blast it with canned air from the tray or if you like you can take it apart and ther will be 4 small screws holding a plate covering the tray and lens, remove it and you will see everything. you either continue blasting air on it or you can get some clean Q-tips and some rubbing alcohol or purer and rub the lens lightly and that will remove what dirt there may be on it. The lens is sensitive os whatever cleaning and repair (or damage) will have a drastic effect on it.

Just bought a ps2 and whatever games I put in my screen just stays on browser and system configuration... what do I need to do


Hi andersona452!

Sadly it sounds like your ps2's disk lense is defective and can't read disks correctly. To get this fixed try contacting tech support or replacing the console. You could try ordering the replacement parts online and get it replaced that way but this is not recommended.

Hope this helped!

Sonic heroes on PS2 wont work, need help


If the DVD you are buying is original then it will just work on your ps2 that is also not downgraded. But if the DVD you bought is downgraded and your PS2 is not then it won't work. look for a technician who can downgrade your ps2 to read pirated copy of games. In philippines, we don't buy original copies, we just download it from the internet and burn it to a dvd. At the same time we downgrade our PS2

Not recognizing disk


My PS2 always does that now. Just make sure it's reading the disc in the System Browser, and it'll play fine.

Disc read error


Disc Read Error generally means that the game disk cannot be read by your console.

Reasons for Disc Read Error
1. Disk surface scratched or smudged.
2. Disk surface dirty.
3. Lens surface dirty.

Here is what you can try doing.

1. Check the game disc for any scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.

2. If the PS2 console is lying down, please set the console to on its side or if it's on its side set it to flat position, restart the console and then try game again. Always ensure the PlayStation 2 is in a cool, well ventilated place.

3. Remove and reinsert the Memory card of your PS2, restart the console then try running the game again.

Other troubleshooting that you can try.

Change the Disc speed of the PS2 DVD and then try again.

Start the PS2 with no disc in a drive. Press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Use the up and down buttons on the controller to select "Playstation Driver” and press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Select Disc speed. If it is set to "Fast," select "Standard"; if it is set to "Standard", select "Fast" and press the "X" button on the controller. Press the "O" button on the controller. Insert the game disc and restart the PS2. Try running the game again.


Turn the Diagnosis On for PlayStation2 to auto detect the best settings.

From the Browser and System Configuration menu. Press the triangle button to select Version. Highlight the Console from the list and press the triangle button - this accesses the next menu option. The Diagnosis will be highlighted. Press the X button to access the options available. Highlight "ON" and press the X button to affect the change. Restart the console and try the game again.

If the above steps does do not solve the error then you would probably have to replace the disc.


Note: If you are using the Slim version of PS2 make sure that the console is properly ventilated and that it should always be in the standing position, as the slim version of PS2 no fan or any other cooling unit unlike the normal PS2.

It wont work


try and change the settings on your ps2
on the screen that says browser and system configuration press triangle.this will take you to another screen. while Playstation Driver is highlited press triangle again. this will take you to a screen that will allow you to adjust the way in which your ps2 reads discs that are inserted. try changing the settings to fast nd smooth
also some times you just have to insert the game over and over again until it works. its kinda like breaking in a new pair of shoes
