Re: DVD-videos won't play, games do
If your PS2 is chipped for playing PS2 fake games then try the following steps:
1)Insert the DVD movie in your PS2 and hold the power button of PS2 until it light goes red.
2)Now again hold the power button until the light turns in green. and after that your DVD movie should work.
If above solution does not works replace the lens with a new one.

It could be, although if it hasn't been modified in anyway it could be the battery. If your son has used this battery so many times, say a couple months or years, the motherboard or chip could malfunction, causing shortage of power. Try getting a replaceable battery, or if you know another friend or guy that has a son/daughter with an extra battery try using it to save money. If it's not the battery, could be the firmware, or version. Hope these solutions help, let me know if they do or don't.
i can GUARANTEE you it happens with other games..you just havent tried EVERY game out there for the ps3, as this would be impossible. Your RSX video processor is overheating, very common with graphic intensive games such as COD5....how do you fix it? well it needs to be disassembled and reflowed and/or thermal pasted. or call sony and send it back for 150plustax...or we fix that for 65. goodluk
you can either go to your local game store and ask if they have a copy or there some programs that create backup files of the game and than you can burn them on to a normal DVD of CD-Rom and play it on your playstation 2.
