Question about Sony PlayStation (PS) Console

1 Answer

Crappy PS1 Game

I have a Sony Playstation that works properly. The games work great (most of them are burned on blank discs from different companies)
and so do Music CD's. But there's one bit of a problem, a game called "Megaman Legends" (which is burned on a blank disc) that has a problem. The game works properly at the beginning, but at the point Roll ask's you to come to City Hall after defeating the Marlwolf (which belongs to Teasel Bonne). You have to say yes or no, but after choosing, it will have Megaman reply, then it fades to black. At this point, something should come up, but nothing will come up no matter how long i'll wait! It just stays pitch black! Is it because of the orange paint marker used on the front, because of the scratches on the back, or is it time to get a replacement for the game which is the normal version instead of the burned version? What ever it is, HELP!!!!

If it's burned on a blank disk most likely the data is corrupted or the ps1 that you have modded to play blank disks doesen't support a feature in that point of the game. You could try playing the actual game on the intended ps1 format and it should work without any problems.

Cant play computer disks such as pictures

Computer disc are written in a format that PS3's read, if you want to play photos or what not you need to burn your disc using like Nero or Power DVD to say the least, you need to select picture CD not DATA or otherwise.

If your doing music you need to burn using make music CD not just drag and drop.

Try burning using picture CD format then update me with any questions you may have or problems that may arise from this solution.


If you got a SD CARD you can put the photos on it and the ps3 will pick those up just fine!

Let me know how it works out.

PS3 wont play load games, have blue ray and normal dvd play

You can try cleaning the laser lens with a cd / dvd lens cleaner cd.

This usually doesn't work, your problem is 98% of the time caused by a Sony defect in the blu-ray drive itself.

The drive will gradually get worse and worse.

If your system is under warranty then by all means get it repaired by Sony for free otherwise you're looking to pay $150 for Sony to repair their own mistake.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

They'll probably suggest another System Restore, Firmware update and a 100 other solutions that won't work because it's hardware related.

Sorry for the bad news.

Ps2 keeps saying disk read error everytime disk is put in no matter what disk is put in what can i do to fix

  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. We do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].

Playstation 2: Blank screen

Try another AV cable, recheck your connections and just try it straight to the TV first without using the sound system and see what happens.

Playstation 2 not reading disc

Are you using a real game disk or are you using a burned disk? If its burned you need a MOD chip for it. If its real then try to open up the PS2 and try to clean the lens gently with a q-tip. It helped me a couple of times.
