Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

PS 2 SLIM Replaced laser same problem

My PS 2 slim is not loading games. I put a game in and it will recognize that a game is in. I then select the game in the menu, and it then goes through to the playstation 2 screen page and sometimes makes it to the next loading screen for the game and sometimes not. At this point the game basically freezes and will not load. I replaced the laser but the same thing occurs. Please help.

Ive had the same problem with games i havent used in a while, but any recent games i have bought work fine. Try buying some new games and see if they work, your old ones might just be trashed.

Ps2 freezing games


I was experiencing the same problem on my ps2 slim scph-90004. When I put a game in my ps2 it loads but after some time it just freezes at the same spot.I went to many shops but they dont recognize my problem.Then i open my ps2 slim (Warning:Opening of ps2 my void your warranty) and saw the lens which was not adjusted. SO,if you are experiencing the same problem then use the above method(For slim only).Look at the rod near the lens which has two small clips on it. Open the screws on the clips and take out your ps2 lens.Clean it with a cotton.Set the lens in some different position and load your games .

PS2 Slim won't load games (won't load final fantasy x specifically)


Take the game out and see if the laser is towards the back. If so, pull the eye towards the spindle or where the hole of the game goes.....and clean the laser eye with a q tip soaked in alcohol.....

Sony machines have notoriously bad lasers. I find that with the slim if you have a small amount of nail polish remover on a cotton bud and dab the laser (whilst off and without touching the laser) that does the trick

Ps 2 is not loading some games


Depending on the age of the console will depend on what games can be played.  I never had this issue with my ps2 original but with my slim console it won't play some games.

Our Playstation 2 Slim Model will no longer load games. We've tried many different games, the auto diagnostic feature does nothing, and when we put in a game it will not advance past the Main Menu. It's...


I fixed the problem myself by going to YouTube and playing a video that showed me how to open the unit safely. When I opened the PS 2 Slim Model, I discovered that the threaded rod that moves the lens had been jarred out of place (I was later told by my son that he had knocked the unit off the table). I carefully put the end of the rod back into place and put the unit back together. It works like a dream now, and my son thinks his mother is a genius. For those who are experiencing the problem of not loading past main menu, and especially if you are experiencing a clicking noise, I would definitely recommend checking out the laser drive rod. Good luck.

My ps2 wont load games


hi Melissa Pat,

You must have a Slim model, as only slim models are aggrevating about adjusting and clenaing. If not take a Magnifying glass or Jewelers Loupe to look at the laser lens extremely close.Sometimes it takes a good bit to get it clear.

Ps does not play games but sometimes plays cd`s


More than likely your PS2 Slimline needs a new laser. You can get one on ebay for under $20 delivered. you may want to attempt to clean the lens with Windex and a q-tip. This is not always successful. Do not use Alcohol on the slim laser lens. If you need assitance or want me to fix it, contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
