Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
On my PS2, games all play fine, but when I insert a DVD, the screen goes black (just like it does whenever it finds a DVD), but the player never starts. The screen just stays black, and a reboot is required to get back to the menu.
If I use the browser the DVD is recognized, and "DVD Video" is shown in the corner of the screen as the type of media. When I select the DVD and press X, the black screen appears.
Expected behavior: The screen flashes, "> Play" appears momentarily, then the DVD begins to play.
Actual behavior: Screen stays black. "> Play" never appears. DVD does not play.
* Running "Diagnosis" (Version > Console > Options > Diagnosis)
* Taking the unit appart and cleaning the lens.
Diagnosis had no apparent effect. After blowing the dust out of the unit and cleaning the laser lens with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth and a drop of isopropyl alcohol, I did get playback on a DVD. After reassembling the unit, though, no DVDs play. I took it apart and cleaned it again, just in case, but no joy...
Try changing the dvd drive speed in the system configuration, it may be at standard, change it to fast
