Have you ever gotten the games to work? Possibly the games you have are for the wrong region (region 1 is north america, region 2 is europe + australia, region 3 is asia). Each PS2 is set to work only with 1 region, and only the games for that region will work in the ps2. So, say you have game x and game y... If game x works in your ps2, and game y doesn't, it is possible game y is for the wrong region... You could try taking your stuff down to your local gamestop, and they might be able to help you determine what region your ps2 and games are.

Try something like this

My PS2 Slim says "please


Form your post I can clearly know that you don't have any problem with your Play Station.


The problem might be with the Digimon world 4 Disc. You should buy a new digimon world 4 DVD orginal or pirated it up to ur choice. if not you can download the game iso file from this link http://www.gamestorrents.com/eng/ps2-game-digimon-world-4-english-english-descargar-torrent-3103.html and write it to a DVD with the help of software like DVD decrypter. Dvd decrypter can b downloaded from the following link http://www.dvddecrypter.org.uk/.

A silver slim ps2 is unable to play certain games


Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)

Ps2 unable to read new games


Okay, If your using the original PS2 console, then your problem is the age of the console. It actually can't play some of the games that were released after the PS2 slim was released. If this is the case, there's not much you can do but try to find a PS2 slim or get a PS3 with the ability to play PS2 games :(

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

New ps2 game won't play on older ps2 game console. Help!?


You're stuck not being able to play, you need to get the slim PS2's because they reconverted the discs for a new disc encoding.

Rockband PS2 brand new disc will not read


I had a similar problem with a "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty disc".

Disc would not play, but it was in mint condition. I had no choice but to return it to the store and get a new copy, which worked.

There must have been an error when the company burned the disc.

Play Station 2


yes it can, you can either take the shell off and give it a good dusting (very carefully) even the lazer might need cleaning also or you can find a gaming repair shop, they will sort it out in minutes and then your ps2 slim will be as good as new

Disc read error


You will ne4ed to clean up the PS2. open it up and clean the laser lens with alcohol on a cotton swab. If it is the Slim Ps2 model you should not use Alcohol. Use A glass Cleaner like windex on the slim. Sometimes the magnet gets week and you need to add some magnetism to help improve the spindle grip on the Game disc. Cut up a refridgerator magnet and place it in the white cap thatt clamps the Game disc in the cd player.
