If you still have the warranty retrun it at no charge. if you don't have the warranty, you more than likely need to have the lens cleaned or adjusted. Either one is about $35. not too bad. my sons have a problem with it all the time. i can clean the lens, but to adjusted i take it in. so you can open it up and try to clean it first. be careful, if you have the slim, don't open it up, those are difficult and always snap.

Could be that your console might have a Power Callibration error for the Laser Lens. If it's within the 90-Day Warranty period,you can send it into Sony's Service Center for repairs otherwise,you can call them and ask for an exchange,if your console has not been,Opened,Dropped or otherwise tampered with for $75+S/H they ship you out a fully refurbished unit.

Hey, the only way to get vice city on ps3 without a download is if you have the ps2 disc and have a 1st generation ps3 due to it being the only ps3 produced with backwards compadability

Vice City plays fine, but when i take that out and put in fifa '08, it goes to that configuration screen, with a picture of each memory card, and the disc. If I click the disc, nothing happens

That means the cd is not reading. Carefully clean the disc and put it back in. Start the game and if it comes on again, press the reset button and see if it will plat this time. Might have to do it 2 or 3 times, but if it is going to play, it will come on.

When i try to play GTA Vice City on my ps2 it keep coming up that it is unable to read my disc when i have just started playing on it...is there anything i can do???

Hi. If problem is occuring with other game cds then this could be a lens problem. Try cleaning you lens with alcohol using qtip. If issue only appears using your GTA then this could be a cd problem.

GTA Vice City Error

I had this problem it's not from the ps2 it's from the disk. For some reason gta disks don't want to corporate with the slightest of scratches.

GTA Vice City Error

It may not be your game disk at all so I'd probably give the alcohol, toothpaste and whatever else you've been using a rest.

My first PS2 used to overheat a lot, so what I used to do was unplug the AC adapter (after shutting it off) from the system when I wasn't using it and that seemed to help.

Also, regular cleaning with a good laser cleaning kit helped extend its life but eventually it just burned out after about two years.

If you have a small electric fan that you can direct at your game system while you're playing, that will help the system temperature stay cool enough to play beyond the 20 minute mark.

GTA Vice City is pretty graphic intensive, and I'm guessing that since you have an older machine it may just be taxing your PS2's resources.

Probably not what you wanted to hear, but the good new is that it plays great on PS3.

I had the same problem- Wash the back of the disc with windex and a paper towel. It should work because it worked for me.

During Game Play Of Grand Theft Auto Vice City

The Disk May Be Internally Damaged Or Externally Damaged, I Would Advise To Get A Disk Cleaning Machine. Or Inside The Console The Laser That Reads The Disk May Be Broken Best To Send It To A Game Shop Or Your Nearest Retailer.

No screen or sound

I have had this problem numerous times. It's a glitch in the game, best I can figure. It corrupts your saved game. You might be able to go back to an earlier save and play from there. But the best solution, if that doesn't work, is to take out the game disc, turn on the ps2, click on Browse (with your memory card plugged in) and delete the Vice City file(s) on there. Then put your disc back in and start over from the beginning. It sucks, I know. I've had to do it. And once I was almost to a 100% completion. Bleh. =( Sorry.
