Play NTSC(U/C) PS2 disc on console which outputs PAL signal
I'm from India.The PS2 console i bought in our city outputs PAL signal & plays PAL format discs properly.Recently I received some PS2 DVDs from relatives in US which are of NTSC(U/C) format.When I play the disc, I get a red screen with the message " Please insert a proper Playstation 2 disc ". Is there anyway for the console to read the disc, like some NTSC to PAL signal converter??Please help

Hi there. Sorry to say but Sony has developed PS2's to be region blocked. SO if your PS2 is a PAL region then it will only be able to play PAL region games. There is no real way to allow your PS2 to play NTSC disks unless it is modded.
It means that the PS2 can't read the disc. Playstation 2s in the US are NTSC, while those in the UK are PAL. PAL discs can not be played on an NTSC PS2, and NTSC discs can not be played on a PAL console. This is because the consoles are region-locked and you can only play games from the region the PS2 itself was sold in.
if your ps2 is not a modded one sorry to tell you but yours is a pal ps2 (means you live somewhere in asia europe)so there is some difference i the american ps2 disc(ntsc) and pal ps2 disc both are designed to play in specific consoles so if you bought they console from ntsc territory(japan ,north america) it should work for sure but sometimes in japan and all they sell pals also but there is still chance try returning the cd to the shop and buy a pal disc or you can mod your ps2 from ps2 technicians (they are all around the world,every console shop has one) and then you can play american disc this is the only chance it will only take a small 25 bucks from you just mod it and u can play games u burned from your computer and also any pal ,ntsc territory original discs also
There are probably a few problems here. What are you using to play the disc? Some NTSC players will "play" a PAL disc but interpret it as NTSC with the symptom you are describing. You need a DVD player that will play PAL. Many of those will output NTSC directly when set up to do so. The other alternative is to have a PAL compatible player that will output PAL into the converter. To narrow this down specifically, please post the model numbers and the connection scheme for your equipment. Once I understand your current setup, I should be able to describe a method to get this to work for you.
Hi, If you install mult-region chip in it then it would play all the discks wether from india or usa and you can also enjoy dvd movies too.Contact any expert nearby and fix the said chip in it and enjoy the games of any region. Thanks and dont forget to rate. Bye
Hi, This problem actually related to the region change.For this problem you have to install a modification chip in your PS2 console after that it will play all your games according to your region. For this you have to contact any expert nearby to you. Thanks
Go to a search engine like www.metacrawler.com and search for "Swap Magic". The Emotion Engine processor that is reading the data from the game is told not to read certain Discs if the region code does not match the conoles country code. It mayl save a game to the memory card but not play the game or run the movie.
