Question about Video Game Consoles

1 Answer

My Playstation 2 will not play Playstation 2 games but will play audio CD's and nothing else not even DVD's. I sprayed the console down with a bottle with compressed air and it still isn't doing any better.

be careful not to disconnect the cables that are between the top and bottom of the console as you have to take all the boards apart to reconect them

Won't load or play disc or dvd


It's a well known fact PS2's had a cheap lazer fitted to them, that's why when it gets chiped to play copy games, not long after it starts playing up. The lazer may just need aligning, purchase a cd/dvd cleaning cd rom as these can check audio, lazer alignment and clean the lens.
