you need to have a modded ps2 to play pirated movies which are not official copies if you are using an original dvd copy then try keeping a weight say a small mobile charger or a small book on the ps2 if you are using the slim ps2
If the movies are DVD (like ps2 games) It could be that the laser for your PS3 has issues- Try using a lint-free lens cloth to clean the laser lens- if that does not work, you may need to contact Sony for an RMA to get your PS3 repaired
The only possible reason for your problem, since your slimline ps2 is STILL reading them (but just a little slow sometimes), is because the lens could hardly read your discs due to dust build up. Try cleaning it using a disc cleaner and letting it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not fix the issue, then you may have to MANUALLY clean the lens. Open the cover and once you see the lens, get a clean swab or qtip and damp it in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens in a circular manner. Then let it dry and try to play those discs again.
Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.
Your console is an old one,and your lens too is probably weak.Try cleaning your PS2 lens Watch Video at end of solution to clean your PS2 at home.... You can also follow these steps to make your PS2 to play GTA San Andreas:
Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
On menu screen go to [options] by pressing 'triangle' button.
A new screen will appear select by pressing 'X' [DISC SPEED]and set it to [FAST]
Then insert the game disc.
Turn off your PS2.
Press and Hold the [Reset Button] till the blue light turns on.Release the Reset button and press it again.
It will take a bit more time to play game,but first i recommend you to clean your PS2 lens,watch this video.
I've got something else to add.......you can follow above steps to play DVD movies if your PS2 dont play any.....!!!
If your PS2 is chipped for playing PS2 fake games then try the following steps:
1)Insert the DVD movie in your PS2 and hold the power button of PS2 until it light goes red.
2)Now again hold the power button until the light turns in green. and after that your DVD movie should work.
If above solution does not works replace the lens with a new one.
You need to have your lens cleaned and or adjusted. i suggest you not try it because you can actually break it and or make it worse. My company will be more than happy to fix this problem.
