You will need to replace lens but due to the cost of the part i recommend you getting a new one or if not do a pot adjustment or clean lens with alcohol and Q-tip

SOURCE: had ps1 game resurfaced, no longer works on ps2

Sounds like you need to get your money back ..the resurfaceing can also do more bad than good
But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way

Ps3 games wont work on my ps3.. but plays ps2 games and dvds play...


How much free memory does your Ps3 have? Are the games used or scratched?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You need a certain amount of memory to play ps3 games. Scratched up games can't be read.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did you put the disc on the right side? Lay the ps3 down and the ps3 game disc picture should be facing up.

PlayStation 2 acting wierd?


Number 1, Stay away from PS3 for right now as it is very unreliable., If you must, get a good warranty.

Fixing the PS2. Get a magnifying glass and bright flashlight and pick the dust, dirt and lint from the Lasers optical path. Also , you might see smudges ot scratches that restrict the optics. .

Please.. help me... my ps2 slimine is comepletely ruined..


Since you "smashed" which made things much worse (been there, done that). It was probrably fixable but now that it scratches I can only assume that the lens (laser) is scratched and damaged "beyond repair". The only suggestion I have, if you really want to fix it is to replace the lens and probrably the disc tray too. Fot the trouble it's worth too fix and the fact that there is no guarantee that it will even work after you fix it, your best bet is too buy a new one or at least a refurbished one.

Ps 2 chipped


I have also envountered problems with dogs life, my only reasonable explination is:

 

dogs life is most propably written on a normal CD-R,

and sometimes a chipped PS2 struggles to read CD-R games, you will also find that older PSX games wont work either, hope this is of some help.

 

have a blessed day.
