My ps2 wont read silver back disks. how do you fix it


Hi there!
When your PS2 starts to have problems reading silver backed discs you could be experiencing one of 2 different problems:
  1. Your laser or disc is dirty (clean off your disc with a soft cotton cloth, and clean the laser in your PS2 with a cd drive cleaning cd)
  2. The laser in your PS2 is going, you will need to take it into a shop to have it repaired, replace the laser or disc drive yourself (this will void the warranty if you have one) or get a new or different PS2.
Hope this helps!

Looks like the disk isnt spinning - any ideas what to do?


Yes. There are three reasons why your Slim PS2 disc might not spin.

1. Bad laser. This is the most common issue.
2. Bad case: if your PS2 dropped or is banged around a lot, the case could become loosely closed and even though it is closed, the PS2 thinks it is still open.
3. Bad sensor(s): The PS2 has 2 sensors to let it know that the lid is closed. Once the lid is closed, the laser does its thing.

PS2 won't read disk


A lot of time, blue disks have much more problems being read than others. Same with golden disks. Honestly, the best thing you can do, is clean your lense in your ps2 with a Q-tip and a SMALL amount of rubbing alcohal. If its the thin ps2, then all you have to do is open the top and do this. if its the older version of ps2, then you need to open it up, and unscrew the top of the drive to do so, then you will see the lense. I used to have this problem frequently. Andn this is how i solved it. however, its a temperary fix, and you will keep having to do it. honestly, if its already starting to do this, you will probably in the future have more trouble with even silver disks, and black (ps1) disks. If you just bought this ps2, i would suggest gettingg your money back. if you got it for free or something similar... you might just want to either get a new drive (if its an old style one) or buy a new one alltogether if you want to not have to go in and clean the lense every 2 weeks.

PS 2 shocked me when I was turning it off. Now it won't turn on.


Something inside the PS2 is busted so you might need to go to gamestop and get it fixed

Ps2 drive failure in slim models


My PS2 has been played so long, let those PS2's run for a minute, usually it takes a minute or two kicking on for those, I have one that takes a while to kick on. If that doesn't work then you just can't do anything, sounds like something is just messed up, when I have a spare PS2 i'll drop it and see what happens for you.

Won't power up


If i was you i'd take a look at the power supply now because the powerboard if it had a serge or somthing it would have safty switched itself if this is the case it should just need to be reset. if its the disk drive fiddle with it try unjaming it any way possible weather it requiers a beating or not because you can pick up a disk drive very cheap and the console them selfes are tuff reliable devises i fixed mine a number of times just by dipping it in metho

My PS2 Slim plays music, black and blue discs, but doesn't play silver discs nor DVDs.


Is this a new problem or has your PS2 always had this issue? You cannot adjust the laser at all and are likely to damage it if you try, you can however clean the laser lens with a CD/DVD cleaning disk and you'd be surprised how often this resolves disk read issues. Some of these units did have a production fault that prevented them from reading DVD's, if your PS2 has had this fault since new and/or is under 12 months old you could probably have had it repaired/replaced by Sony but by opening it you will have invalidated you're warranty.

Adaptor plugin messed up


you probably have a loose connection in there. If you are comfortable with it, open it up and check for a loose connection. If you find it you can probably fix it yourself. If you aren't comfortable with it I'm sure you have a friend that is willing.
