Dirty or Worn laser is a very common fault in all PS2's sometimes cleaning the laser will help or slight adjustment may be needed.

On several PS2's I've fixed the laser was fine, but the suspension rubbers had worn... you can test for this by putting a disc in, closing tray, turning the PS2 upside down then pressing the reset button... if the disc loads when the machine is upside down then you need new suspension rubbers.

A less common fault which can give the same fault of not reading discs is the spindle motor going bad.

SOURCE: Playstation 2 will load the game, but then only show black screen

You might of had one of the wires connected from the TV to the PS2 damaged and may need new ones or just make sure that the wires connecting each other from the TV to the PS2 are well connected. My little brother use to drop my PS2 a lot too and that happened to me once, but it turned out to only be that the wire got pulled too much when it fell and it disconnected from the TV to the PS2 and I had to only put it in well.

Ps2 wont play DVDs


Your PS2 laser is wearing out. When the laser starts to go, first games will skip... then eventually the PS2 will stop reading DVDs altogether. If you keep using it to read CDs, it will eventually stop reading those too and the laser will die altogether. Here's a website that will help you identify your PS2 model, show you how to replace the laser, and they sell parts and do repairs too

please try:
  • Reinstalling all your game data files
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)

My playstation 2 plays movies but will not read games why?


The 'Eye' that the PS uses to read DVDs/CDs are different, the one that reads cds has gone bad on yours it seems, so you should still be able to play the games that have the dvd logo, if it is still under warranty I reccommend calling sony.
