Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

PS2 Problem I have a PS2 slim.My son was playing a game on it and when he turned the system off it was fine.When he returned later to play it again the system wouldn't work.The power light comes on and the logo comes on the tv screen then it asks you to choose between Browse or Console Configuration.If you choose Browse then it takes you to the memory card and shows you whats stored on the memory card and asks you if you want to copy or delete this file.Also if you take the memory card out and put a game in it shows a message saying NO DATA DETECTED. I also noticed that when you put a game in the system it justs sets there it never starts spinning.Any help you give me would greatly be appreciated.

A silver slim ps2 is unable to play certain games


Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)

My sons ps2 which is not the slim version will not play some games especially coloured discs but they will play on other sons slim console why?


it might not play cause the bigger system is alil bit older tech so the laser might not be able to read it but thats not normally the case probably the laser is dirty on the bigger system some duster might help to blow dust off the laser but you might have to take it apart to clean it

My son played his Rock Band 2 on my brother's PS2 and it played fine. He then bought his own PS2 and could never get it to play. He has a Tiger Woods game that works fine on both games. Both machines are...


Is tiger woods a blue disc or silver?

The silver discs are DVD and the Blue ones are CD (same with the black PSOne discs). If Tiger woods is a CD then your DVD laser could be out.

You can try to clean the lasers lens and see if that helps, but if you have jsut got that machine you should take that back.

New ps2 game won't play on older ps2 game console. Help!?


You're stuck not being able to play, you need to get the slim PS2's because they reconverted the discs for a new disc encoding.

PS2 Slim will not play


hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.

PS2 Makes Sounds and Keeps Pausing Games


Hi Ebridges2,

 

The Game your playing is probably a Blue colored media.  That is ones that spin so fast.  You console has become dusty and loaded with lint probably.  You can open the case and clean up the insides. Also while your in there, remove the ocver and polish up the lasers lens.  This will probably get you back in business. If you do nto have success, contact me at Repairtech@ playstationclinic.com   I run The Playstation Clinic at www.playstationclinic.com  If you have a Slim Model it will cost more than the big model to repair.  The slim model is $41 full refurbish including return shipping inside the USA.  The big Fat PS2 Versions are $36 including return shipping.
