My ps2 has stopped reading my discs, it will work on occasions but what should i do ?


your ps2 most likely needs to be cleaned, and the vent to prevent overheating needs to be cleaned, and you need to get rid of the dust that builds up, with one of the pressurised dusters, like the ones for keyboards.

My sons ps2 which is not the slim version will not play some games especially coloured discs but they will play on other sons slim console why?


it might not play cause the bigger system is alil bit older tech so the laser might not be able to read it but thats not normally the case probably the laser is dirty on the bigger system some duster might help to blow dust off the laser but you might have to take it apart to clean it

To Clean you PS2 Here are the steps

1. Unscrew you PS2 bye the top

2. Get a duster air can to spray off the dust. (make sure you don't spray to much they might have gas in them.)

3. Take a two sided Q tip or one sided doesn't matter and dip the cotton sides into rubbing alcohol and careful clean of the lens do not scratch it or you ruin your PS2.

4. Take all peices that you might have moved and put the exactly in place.

5. Put cover on.

6. Screw the screws back in (P.S. do not use a electric powered screw driver use a hand held one.)

7. Turn on and test it if it has problems like heating up dust out the fan on the back.

And, if you have a small PS2 even thought they are junk just dust out the fan open the part that you put the disc in and dust arond the lens and inside and then just clean the lens with the Q tip and alcohol.

My ps2 screen says 'insert a playstation or a ps2 format disc


t's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken

Format disc


Your problem is most likely a faulty/ worn out laser, you can get a replacement for about £10 - £12 from this website www.ps2laser.co.uk there fairly easy to fit or they offer a repair service if you dont fancy having a go yourself.

Ps2


sounds like the laser is out of alignment, you can either try to adjust the laser or you can search ebay or other places for a replacement laser assembly for your model.

if you want to tackle the adjustment of the laser assembly then.

but first try this.

Hey Tyler 2,

Try cleaning it. If this thing doesn't have a warrenty, feel free to open it up. Be very careful of the sensative hardware, but take a look at the tray, and remove any dust that you see with some sort of napkin, or even a spray-duster.

If this doesn't work, then it may be time for a new Ps2. The dvd-rom in them usually have a lifetime of 4-5 years as I've seen.

Invest in a canister of compressed air found at many electronic stores. You should spray it into any slots or holes that you see to clean out the dust. Dust inside the unit can cause overheating. Make sure you have good air circulation around the system.
