Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Games

1 Answer

PS2 My son puts a game into his PS2 lately and the 'Browser' screen comes up and wont go away. I have reset it many times and even used an air duster to blow away any dust possibly in there and it still comes up. It used to do it here and there but now it will NOT bring the game up at all. I know PS2 systems are getting older but I think its something else. I dont think it lost its memory of how to play a game. What gives? Possible solutions?

It possibly could be a lens problem.You have to reset the controller for it start again. Try using a Lens Cleaner DVD preferably Philips is recommended. Blower or using an air duster won't clean the dust completely. Also servicing your PS2 from a authorized Sony distributor is also good. Or it could be a scratched DVD. Try these things.........

Ps2 start up screen is ok then brand name on screen ok then goes to memory card and disc screen wont enter game. will play music cd's though


the problem might be your cd drive. the lens may be broken. I suggest you go to a technician and convert your ps2 to harddrive. it loads games much faster and you wont need cd to play games.
also if you want to play games using psp slim here are some tutorials on how to do that.

hope it helps.

My son has been given a PS2, it's the original type not the slimline. He also has a PS3, but still has many PS2 games, his old PS2 broke a long time ago and was thrown out. My question = The PS2 he...


There is no need for a special adapter. The cord that plugs into the wall is all that is needed for your PS2 to be used. Just make sure you have the rca plugs for audio and video in the correct sockets on your tv, plug in your controller, slide in a game, and awaaaay you go! :)
Hope that cleared it up.
Cheers from NZ

MY PS2 WONT LOAD GAMES.HOW DO I REPROGRAMM


It's not reprogramming that is needed. If the PS2 won't load games, it probably needs a new laser.

You can find various lasers for the Playstation 2 at the website above. Just be aware, different PS2 models use different lasers, so make sure you match up your model number with the laser.

Sonic heroes on PS2 wont work, need help


If the DVD you are buying is original then it will just work on your ps2 that is also not downgraded. But if the DVD you bought is downgraded and your PS2 is not then it won't work. look for a technician who can downgrade your ps2 to read pirated copy of games. In philippines, we don't buy original copies, we just download it from the internet and burn it to a dvd. At the same time we downgrade our PS2

Ps2 doesn't load goes to browser setting


if you can see the swirly lights that allow you to get to the page that shows storage media ( should be a memory card and a disc labelled 'unknown disc' ) if you can see unknown disc you probably just have to clean the laser.

Ps2 game i got from englan(pal) wont play in my system here .


If you are in North America, you PS2 will not play PAL formatted disks. (NTSC is what is used here). You would need a modded PS2 to play the game. If you can get your money back, I would recommend that. If not, then you might want to try to sell it on eBay.

Disc read error


Disc Read Error generally means that the game disk cannot be read by your console.

Reasons for Disc Read Error
1. Disk surface scratched or smudged.
2. Disk surface dirty.
3. Lens surface dirty.

Here is what you can try doing.

1. Check the game disc for any scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.

2. If the PS2 console is lying down, please set the console to on its side or if it's on its side set it to flat position, restart the console and then try game again. Always ensure the PlayStation 2 is in a cool, well ventilated place.

3. Remove and reinsert the Memory card of your PS2, restart the console then try running the game again.

Other troubleshooting that you can try.

Change the Disc speed of the PS2 DVD and then try again.

Start the PS2 with no disc in a drive. Press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Use the up and down buttons on the controller to select "Playstation Driver” and press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Select Disc speed. If it is set to "Fast," select "Standard"; if it is set to "Standard", select "Fast" and press the "X" button on the controller. Press the "O" button on the controller. Insert the game disc and restart the PS2. Try running the game again.


Turn the Diagnosis On for PlayStation2 to auto detect the best settings.

From the Browser and System Configuration menu. Press the triangle button to select Version. Highlight the Console from the list and press the triangle button - this accesses the next menu option. The Diagnosis will be highlighted. Press the X button to access the options available. Highlight "ON" and press the X button to affect the change. Restart the console and try the game again.

If the above steps does do not solve the error then you would probably have to replace the disc.


Note: If you are using the Slim version of PS2 make sure that the console is properly ventilated and that it should always be in the standing position, as the slim version of PS2 no fan or any other cooling unit unlike the normal PS2.

It wont work


try and change the settings on your ps2
on the screen that says browser and system configuration press triangle.this will take you to another screen. while Playstation Driver is highlited press triangle again. this will take you to a screen that will allow you to adjust the way in which your ps2 reads discs that are inserted. try changing the settings to fast nd smooth
also some times you just have to insert the game over and over again until it works. its kinda like breaking in a new pair of shoes
