PS2 rock band disk

Just bought a new rock band game. When I hooked things up and loaded the disk, message appears stating Browser and system configuration. Haven't seen this before. Any ideas?? I think I have all hooked up right

    I had the same problem. All other discs work but when I put the new rockband disc for ps2 in, I received an error message regarding configuration. Very frustrating! I made several trips to my local vendor where the game was purchased to complain, only to find out its not the disc but the game system (gas isn't cheap, the game ended up costing me way more than the sticker price not to mention time and frustration).

    I went to the EA site to get assistance and was told to contact Sony tech support.

    OK so my rockband disc worked for a few months with no problem, i buy the track pack volume 1 and they both work, then i put the Rock Band disc in and it says Browser, System configuration, now what? I reset the PS2, I unplug it and plug it back in, I have cleaned it out... it has some minor scratches but those have been there forever, and the other games work fine, so if you have any idea on how to fix this besides getting a new disc please get back to me, it's appreciated



    Sincerely

    Rock Band Disc will not work in PS2, how can we get it to work?

  • Anonymous Jan 02, 2009

    I have the black slim 7000012 series PS2. I tried the autoconfiguration as well as cleaning the lens with no luck. The system just stops on a black screen if the Rock Band disc is already inserted. If you boot the system and then load the disc, it just sits there at the reading disc screen forever. Rock Band support said to clean the lens and if that did not work, contact Sony. Sony indicated that this was a known issue with both Rock Band and Guitar Hero and that the system would have to be sent in for "repair" at a cost of $45. Oddly, the PS2 plays other games, CD's, and DVD's just fine. Sounds like a firmware defect that was caught too late (and really should be provided for free).

Ok, I was having the same problem. You need to take your playstation apart and clean the laser with some alcohol. Only use alcohol as it dries faster and clear. Might as well clean the rest of the inside as well. you will be surprised at the dust it collects. After I done this my works fine.

The Rock Band disc is a double layered disc, and is basically too high tech for older versions of PS2s... so the only real thing to do is upgrade and get the slim version...

the screen with the Browser and System Config, is the default screen for playstation, it appears when there is no disc or there is a disc read error.

I'm having the same troubles. I have a 300001 R model.

You have to go into the settings and do a disk diagnosis. Turn it on and then put the disk in. It should work. It did for us.

Old PS2 will read some games but not all


You can have the lens adjusted at a repair shop for not too much money, but be aware that if your lens is slipping out of alignment it's only a matter of time before it breaks completely. It may be time to replace your system with a PS3 or a new PS2.

Best of luck!

Rock band ps2 disc


THis is my complaint letter I have sent out tonight:
My daughter and I went to Walmart in New Ulm, Minnesota tonight. She took her savings of $130.00 that she earned rock picking this summer to buy the game "Rockbandfor playstation2" for her playstation2. (FYI her playstaion2 is slim model numberSCPH-70012)

We got home and she happily opened the box and quickly put everything together and hooked it up. The disk was "unreadable" it stated "there is no data"

There was a pink slip inside the game stating to go to http://supportea.com/rockband if there was a problem with the game. I went to the site and called the phone number stated on the site. I was told that the Rockband game did not work on certain models of the playstation 2and there were lawsuits against sony because of this.I was told there was nothing they could do. I was told to call Sony at 1-800-345-7669. I called Sony and they told me they knew nothing about the so called lawsuits against them that "ROckband" told me. Sony said I could give them my credit card number and for $45 I could mail it to them and they would look at my playstation 2 console. Note: ALL OTHER PLAYSTATION GAMES WORK ON MY PLAYSTATION! Rockband is the only one that does not. Sony told me I needed to call EA (ROckband) . I called ROckband and talked to supervisor Steve. He said I could return the game (which is a HUGE box with drums etc in it ) at my cost and if found defective they would send me a factory sealed new game which I could return to Walmart and get my money back. I do not have the money to pay for shipping on this......I asked for a prepaid shipping label and they said no they could not do that.
I then called the New Ulm Walmart and talked to Asst manager Mike. He gave me the same answer as SOny and Rockband ultimatley gave me.....THere was nothing they could do. THe box was opened and federal law says they cannot take electronics back. He knew nothing about this game being faulty with certain models of Playstation2 systems.
I told all 3 of these companys that there should be a recall.....that they are aware this Rockband Playstation2 game does not work with certain Playstation 2 consoles. There should be some sort of label on the box stating this!!!!
My 14 year old daughter worked hard for that money she spent on this game! All I want is the money back!! I told Walmart they should not have these games on their shelves!!! I had purchased the game an hour before I called Walmart to ask if I could please return it and they said it would be against the law for them to take it back.
Do I need to buy a new playstation2 (which I cant afford!) and what if that playstation is one of the faulty models....then I am stuck with another useless playstation.......

Its just so ridiculous that my daughter bought this game and she can't even use it and can;t take it back to get her money back. We bought this game a couple hours ago and my daughter has been so upset about all of this she has been in tears. She has saved that money for a long time and finally decided to make this big purchase........We made a special trip to the New Ulm Walmart from Springfield just to buy this game..............

You would think big cooperations such as Sony, EA or Walmart would be willing to at least send a prepaid shipping label to help us out in this situation.
They are ripping consumers off!!!! Its a disgrace!

We had the same problem, we even went and bought a whole new Rock Band. My husband turned our PS2 slimline on the side and it started working. I don't know why or how, I just know it worked for us. Give it a try and I hope it works for you also.
