Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Playstation 2 cannot run some games

Hello. My playstation 2 slimline has trouble running games that begin with a video. The ps2 can load up to the main menu just fine but when it comes to starting missions it goes to standby phrase. (green power light goes to red) Now heres the tricky part, this only occurs when a video is played beforehand to the actual gameplay. Missions that start gameplay immediately can run great. I have tried wiping my discs and tried different power outputs. Any advice would be great. Remember that this is a PS2 Slimline and it only malfunctions when a video is played before the gameplay.

It might be a problem in the wiring which would have to be fixed by an expert. also you could tey cleaning the disk tray using a compressed air can. you can find these cans at most place like walmart or electronic stores.

Sony playstation model no.scph- 39001 wont run browser

There are no browser on playstation 2, for an online play you need a network adaptor or slimline ps2. Still when i checked for example killzone 1 multiplayer like 5 years ago one lonely person was playing so it's not worth the cost and trouble.

My ps2 slimline wont read disks

Check if there is anything lodged inside where you close the front. or run a disk cleaning sequence with the Maxell or Radioshack(<---- works the best) disk cleaner. Run it three times. Plus you don't have to watch or listen when it is playing, just in the beginning.
