Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

Ps2 - certain games do not play

Help!!! i have tried a number of games that will not function at all. some games are ok but others (24, god of war 2, genji) get no reaction from the console. The model no. is SCPH 50003 - ive read on the internet about codes etc but i am lost. please help. thanx enrybr Why won't my PS2 play race car games? It'll play football games, fighting games, and military games...just no race car games. I've bought Gran Turismo, and Need for Speed, and none of them will work. The discs were in excellent condition; so it couldn't have been due to scratches or anything. I ended up having to return them though because they just wouldn't work. All that would show is a black screen with a little white box in the upper left hand corner of the screen. What's up with that?

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 :)

Games like God of War 2, Grand Turismo 4 etc take time to load and some times these games are not loaded by consoles with weak lenses or dirty lens.You should consider cleaning your lens.Cleaning lens might solve your problem plus here is a trick for you to play such heavy games(Although its about playing DVDs on PS2 but you can play your game by following this tip the same way.)

Play staion 2 reads all games but wont read god of war 1 and 2


Best bet is to try a laser lens cleaner and seeing if that helps. I know it sounds silly that it might be dust on the lens when only THOSE games don't work, but stranger things have happened.

Want to play god of war 3


God of War 3 has been announced, but hasn't been released yet. It has been announced for PS3, not PS2. It will not be compatible with your system. If you want to play it, you will have to purchase a PS3.

Your ps2 needs to be fixed, gow 1 and 2 are dual layered discs and alot of ps2 originals and slims have trouble playing it, trying calling sony and they can usually fix it for about $45, the laser in your ps2 is worn.  Hope this helps :)

It sounds like your console is having trouble reading dvd's which means either the laser is dirty or failing
