Format disc for playstation 2 I bought some UK playstation disc and I get that message what do I do


It means that the PS2 can't read the disc. Playstation 2s in the US are NTSC, while those in the UK are PAL. PAL discs can not be played on an NTSC PS2, and NTSC discs can not be played on a PAL console. This is because the consoles are region-locked and you can only play games from the region the PS2 itself was sold in.

Your system needs a mod chip to play games on a disc that was not created by Sony.
Most ps2 games are DVD's only some are cd's.. All of the ps1 games are cd's so if you burnt it onto a dvd its not going to work.

Check to see if the top lid is closed correctly. Probably one of the small locks on front of it has broken off and the Playstation 2 wont spin the disc. Check to see if they are intact as well. If this is not the problem then you should probably call the PlayStation 2 Support Line, or just call up Sony.

Japanese game wont play on ps2 slimline!


if its in a region lock, its impossible to be played on a American PS2, if your PS2 is modded it will read any region locked discs, the only possible solution is to buy a Japanese Version PS2

IF THE DISC IS NOT BEING READ THEN THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE LENS INSIDE THE PS2. IF IT IS BEING REA THEN TRY OPENING THE PS2 TAKE OF THE TOP. LOCATE THE TRAY COVER AND THERE IS A WHITE OBJECT IN THE MIDDLE, TRY SPINING IT. IF IT DOSEN'T MOVE THEN PLAY WITH IT UNTIL ITS LOOSE. ThEN TRY PLUGIN BACK THE PS2 AND INSERTING A GAME (DO NOT PUT THE TOP BACK ON) INSERT THE GAME AND SEE IF THE WHITE OBJECT IS TURNING WHEN THE DISC IS READING..
IF IT IS THEN THE DISC IS SPIINNING,
HOPE IT WORKS FOR U.

After playing ps2 for about 30 minutes it locks up and you can only see a still screen, it doesn't do it with all games only some


It could be a couple of things. Most likely being that your disc is scratched, and everytime about 30 minutes into the vdeo game or Movie, your system cannot read the data and just stops finctioning. Try a different disc to see if it locks up on it at the same timing.
The other thing that may be aggrevating your Console and causing it to lock is dust and lint build up. If the dust and lint bloack the heat from getting out it will lock up on you say after 30 minutes or less. open your case and clean all the dust and lint out.
