The only way to do that, is if you A) send it back to sony, and let them do it for a huge service charge, and guarantee the work. B) take the drive out, and downlload a software that can crack the region coding.

I have a PS2 Slim and it won't read discs. Every time I put a disc in it won't spin it will just go to the screen that says browser and system configuration. Please help me!!


Causes:

1. DVD has lots of scratches
2. Regional Settings
3. Incorrect DVD settings for PS2
4. No/Incorrect Disc

Remedy:

1. Clean your discs well and avoid incurring scratches. Place it in
its box after use.
2. DVDs have encoding. They are encoded by regions. Thus, you cannot
play region 2 DVDs on a US Playstation mainly because the US
Playstation 2 can only read DVD that are encoded in Region 1 or
those DVDs that are encoded for all regions. Again, US PS2 are
region 1 capable. Japanese PS2s are Region 2 Capable.
3. There are a number of settings for the DVD playback of your
PS2. First is the rating of the DVD. If you want to watch a
rated R movie, make sure your PS2 allows viewing of R movies.
You'll be setting this during the first time that you'll be
watching a DVD. It's just the same as real theaters. It is also
protected with password so you need the person who set it up
the first time in order to bypass the rating settings.
4. Put in a DVD first and make sure that it is a Movie. And,
check #2.

How to make ps2 region free


Hi,
you have 2 options to make your PS2 region free.
1:- you buy a bootdisk.
2:- you get a modchip fitted.
By default PS2s are region encoded to use in the set region.
PAL Region 2. N.T.S.C Region 1 et,c.
The disk you need is called Swap-Magic, this allows your console to play backup games, hence region free.
