Samurai warriors 2 doesn't play

Examine the disc, is there a ring a couple of millimeters from the edge? Or a gouge on the disc? If so, and you purchased it used, return it whence it came!

Try changing the resolution your TV is putting out; it may not be in full screen, but at least everything won't be stretched! 800x600 has a different ratio than 1360x768

How to Clean PS2 laser lens. Older PS2
  • Step 1 Check the lens-cleaning disk. It is important that it is free from dirt or debris. If its dirty, the disk can damage the laser lens on the Playstation 2.
  • Step 2 Press the Playstation 2 open button. Insert the lens-cleaning disk in the tray and close.
  • Step 3 Wait roughly 10 seconds for the disk to read. The brushes on the lens disk will clean the laser.
    New Slim PS2
  • Step 1 Unhook the PS2 from the outlet and the TV. If the power cord has a connection to the outlet, damage can occur.
  • Step 2 Dip a cotton swab into an alcohol bottle. Open the lid of the PS2 with the button.
  • Step 3 Use the cotton swab to rub the lens. Gently brush the laser lens with the cotton swab, covering the entire area.
  • Step 4 Wait about an hour for the laser to dry

  • I had this same issue with my Older style PS2 and I had to take it apart and manually clean the lens. It worked perfectly after that. I was extremely nervous opening up my system, but if it didn't work I was willing to take the chance.

    Here is a link on someone taking a ps2 apart.

    You're stuck not being able to play, you need to get the slim PS2's because they reconverted the discs for a new disc encoding.

    sounds like the tech info was upgraded on ps3 to handle newer technology and the 1 & 2 are not up to this new standard of operating system. Happens to me every time I upgrade my camera. That way they get you to keep buying new products.

    Error 80028f17

    Error 80028f17 is a boot error and there is nothing you can really do about it, the disk is corrupted or burned (illegal copy) of the game. If it is legit, go back to the store and ask for another copy as it doesn't work.
