    My problem is that it wont read certain games and I can't get it to read a dvd. I've tried the self diagnosis,cleaning, etc. that didn't seem to do anything. I just bought God of War II and it wont read the disk, also GTR4 same thing. The thing with GTR4 I was already 1/2 way when it quit working.

If you have your playstation 2 standing upright it may be this tht ios causing the problem as the disc will not be correctly line up with the laser that reads the disc this could also cause scratchs on the discs, its best to have the playstation 2 in the downright postition.

My playstation 2 won't play any disks period.How can I fix this?


To start the auto diagnosis feature

Press the standby/RESET button on the front of your PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system to turn on the system. Make sure the indicator light turns green.


The Main Menu screen will appear.
NOTE: It might take some time for the main menu screen to appear.


Using the directional buttons, highlight [Browser] and press the (X) button.


Highlight [System] and press the (X) button.


Highlight [Diagnosis] and press the (X) button.


Highlight "On" and press the (X) button.


Insert a disc.

Auto diagnosis will start automatically.
The system will make adjustments that might allow previously unplayable discs to be played.


To start the disc after auto diagnosis is complete (for 30000-50000 series):

Press the (O) button twice to return to the browser screen.


Using the directional buttons, highlight [Browser] and press the (X) button.


Press the (X) button to play the disc.

if still not work then apply this
Just take some rubbing alcohol and cotton buds. Gently clean the lens. If this won't help - the laser needs to be replaced. Don't worry, they are cheap now.

Play station 2 console, put game in and nothing happens


Then your disc reader must be messed up. Try bringing it to a store that can fix it and see what they can do about it. Hope that helps.

Disk format


1) Turn on machine
2) Open Tray
3) With tray still open hold the reset until the tray closes.
4) Tap the reset once.
if there is a format disc error, it says "Please insert a Playstation or Playstation 2 format disc." It is accompanied by a sound similar to the browser, but with a more tense noise. This is caused by a disc being so badly scratched that it completely fails to recognise the format, or if there is a problem with the laser. Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system) 1. Turn on the system without a disc inside. 2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen. 3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again. 4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more. 5.
