Seems to me you ether got a bad drive in this unit or you got scratched or dirty disc. Normally you would try a blue ray disc in this to see if it works if it doesn ot work you might have a issue with your drive.

My son changed the language on his Lego Indiana Jones game to German and we can't change it back. We changed the language to English on the unit itself using the menu, but the game is still in German. ...


Load up the game and do the following.
1. At the main menu choose the 3rd option "Optionen".
2. Then 3rd down "Sprache".
3. And "English".
4. Enjoy your English Indy.

We just purchased Guitar Hero and when we put it in our PS2 it dont spin the disk??


Here's what I did to fix the same problem on my PS2 (Slim model # SCPH-70012). This should work for all models of PS2's. (Slim or Fat). Sony says all models can read a dual layer disc. If the fix doens't work then you need to send in your PS2 for service.

1) Start up the PS2 with no disc in it.
2) Highlight the 'Browser' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
3) Highlight the 'Console' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
4) Highlight the Diagnostics menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'ON'.
5) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
6) Highlight the 'PlaystationDrive' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
7) Highlight the 'Disc Speed' menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'FAST'.
8) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
9) Turn off your PS2.

10) This step is optional.......I blew into the main unit to loosen any dust out of it and then carefully used my shirt to wipe across the lens at the back of the drive. I'm not sure if this mattered or not. Since I did this in conjuction with the above steps I can't say if this is needed.
11) Insert the disc and turn the PS2 back on. The diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I was amazed! Mine loaded right up after several previous days of nothing.

12) I checked the settings after the initial load and the Diagnostics and Drive speed reset to normal so it must be a one time run thing. My game has loaded everytime since and I haven't had to re-do the settings at all.

I hope this works for you too!!

Our Playstation 2 Slim Model will no longer load games. We've tried many different games, the auto diagnostic feature does nothing, and when we put in a game it will not advance past the Main Menu. It's...


I fixed the problem myself by going to YouTube and playing a video that showed me how to open the unit safely. When I opened the PS 2 Slim Model, I discovered that the threaded rod that moves the lens had been jarred out of place (I was later told by my son that he had knocked the unit off the table). I carefully put the end of the rod back into place and put the unit back together. It works like a dream now, and my son thinks his mother is a genius. For those who are experiencing the problem of not loading past main menu, and especially if you are experiencing a clicking noise, I would definitely recommend checking out the laser drive rod. Good luck.
