If you have cleaned it with no results then the is a problem with the laser that reads the disks. These lasers have two adjustments on the bottom of them, one for CDs (PS1 games) and one for DVDPS2 DVD not playing movies - 5.gif (PS2 games). It is sometimes possible to adjust the DVD side and get it to work (there are many tutorials on the web on how to do this), but unfortunatly this is a temporary fix. The only real fix is to buy another laser. They are very abundant on the web (ebay1.gif is a great source for them too!). They are very reasonably priced now. Either way the unit will have to be disassembled. Hope this helps you out...

As for the 4 digit code, press "SELECT" when it asks you for your code. Then you enter "7444". It will then ask you to enter your new 4 digit access code. I recommend just making "0000". That way you just have to press "X" a bunch of times to get your movie to work..

SOURCE: My slim PS2 didn't playing any movie cd's and dvd's and not playing any cd's and dvd's except game dvd only??

I needed to get the CD with the remote control in order to play songs and movies. There is a CD you buy that you can download onto your PS2 slim and afer you do this, you should be able to play movies, music, etc.....

My ps2 slim cannot read the ps2 cd game after I'm use it to play a movie dvd.. but it still can play dvd at all..assist me please....


Your laser is probably on its way out -- as a laser starts to fail, it will first stop reading PS2 games (but will read some DVD movies OK). It will then stop reading DVD movies and only play CDs. Finally, it will not read anything at all. You can find a new laser, based on your PS2's model number, at the following website:

Tip

Try this to play DVD movies on your PS2 if it wont play DVD movies.


If your PS2 works fine with Games and just wont play any DVD movies at all.Then you should try this trick to play movies on your PS2:

  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:894e4e5.jpg
  3. Press the ps_b_triangle.gif (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like3aef030.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press ps_b_triangle.gif (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear like0163e66.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press ps_b_x.gif 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 movie plays itself.If your lens is good then it will play DVD in first go else try again till it PLAY your DVD movie.


Thank you!
