Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

3 Answers

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 about a year and a half old. Please help.

It may be safer to try and use a cd laser leanse cleaner, go buy one for the ps2 these are great i have one and it works for me as i have had the same problem, get one with a liquid for cleaning the leanse you may just have dust on the laser leanse and the cleaner will get rid of it try and use the cleaner each month to assure you that the prob wont crop up again.

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.

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

Guitar hereo wont work on slimline ps2


I had the same issue (since Christmas).  Today it was rainy, so I spent some time with kids and here is what worked for me
Here's what I did to fix the same problem on my PS2 (Slim model # SCPH-70012). This should work for all models of PS2's. (Slim or Fat). Sony says all models can read a dual layer disc.


1) Start up the PS2 with no disc in it.
2) Highlight the 'Browser' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
3) Highlight the 'Console' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
4) Highlight the 'Diagnostics' menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'ON'.
5) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
6) Highlight the 'PlaystationDrive' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
7) Highlight the 'Disc Speed' menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'FAST'.
8) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
9) Turn off your PS2.


10) Insert the disc and turn the PS2 back on. The diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I was amazed! Mine loaded right up after several previous days of nothing.

11) I checked the settings after the initial load and the Diagnostics and Drive speed reset to normal so it must be a one time run thing. My game has loaded everytime since and I haven't had to re-do the settings at all.

I hope this works for you too!!

Psp will not load games


When you put the game in, there is a latch at the bottom the psp that when you put the game in, it tells the psp to load the game. When you put the game in, look and see if you see a silver latch that the game should push. If you see it, make sure the game is pushing down when inserted. If it is not there, or it still does not work, you will need to get it serviced at a game store or at a shop.
