View Full Version : I just got MK Deception, and guess what -_- It doesn't work
I don't know why ;_; PLEASE tell me why, but when I put the disk in my PS2 it reads it yeah fine for like 30 seconds *which is long actually* and then it gets to the PLAYSTATION 2 screen then goes back to the Browser screen...apparently the disk does not work on my system. I thought I might have DRE, but I tried one of my own DVD Game Disks and they worked fine. It's either my lens is dirty *anyone recommend a good lens cleaner?* or it's because my lens are old and unreadable to the new games....;_;
Your PS2 is probably getting old. I guess the first thing you should do is try cleaning the lens with a proper PS2 lens cleaner. (I think there is a thread about that somewhere on the forum). If that doesn't work I suggest you get a new PS2. You can get a replacement from Sony for a cheaper price, or I guess you could just get one of the new smaller PS2's.
Hmm I have to keep telling people this, check in the disk read error section. see blue backed disk's are much harder to read then a DVD disk and so on so what you have to do is open your ps2 and adjust the lens to eaither go higher or lower untill it works http://www.ps3forums.com/viewtopic.php?t=27&start=0 it explains how to fix it and crap
question...is it a good idea to flip the ps2 around? that from my knowledge DOES make the lens closer but I dunno...
also: is a dvd lens cleaner worthy also?
I dun think its a good idea to flip a PS2 around. It may work for the Playstation but I tried it and...well it just decided to say "Screw you, I'm gonna die now" and it died. Well thats from personal experience...and after that I had to like leave my PS2 alone and then after that it worked. But yea, basically I dun think you should flip a PS2 around, you could try, it didn't work for me though. Maybe you need to change your chip...cause this dude was telling me that certain games needs a new chip thing, he could be wrong (which I totally think so) but I've had no problems that would want me to buy a new chip for the PS2.
A DVD lens cleaner...hmmmm they say it doesn't clean the lens thoroughly. If you're a real hands on tech dude I suggest you follow this dude, he seems to know what the heck he's doing. http://www.stormpages.com/lee/1ps2clean.html
Basicly same thing as my link, I did that succsesfully have any questions just ask
I don't think you read far enough watashi I actually posted the solution not just the trick that by the way worked for me everytime[/quote]
the disk eye cant always be scleaned as good as it used to be with out taking it out and dipping it in alcohol or somthing so what you do is clean it as best you can and move the eye untill it can read it and if you dont want to open your ps2 then turn it on then reset it and flip it onto its back
ahh yes...you wrote that...err is that really typical? and workable? I read the whole 2 annoying pages that was written in say yo u do no
I'm serious I hate people that type like that.
you missed my really long post which told you how to fix it, that is only a solution for lazy people and I don't understand what you are trying to say but here is what I wrote
i got all this from some site for a english project cause i couldnt find the one i made and it was due the next day and the reason im adding this is to stay away from piracy issues
Don't throw away your PS2. Fix those errors with these simple steps.
About a month ago, I noticed that my aging PS2 would no longer read DVD video and audio CD discs. I tried using a laser-lens cleaning disc as well as upgrading my DVD software, but my PS2 continued to report the dreaded "disc read error." With PS2 repair jobs costing about as much as a new unit, I was determined to find a (hopefully free) fix.
After scouring countless online sources and finding little useful information, I came across a message board posting that suggested the problem may be related to an internal adjustment gone awry.
The result is that the disc read errors (DREs) are gone, and my PS2 is now as snappy as the day I pulled it out of its pretty blue box.
If a once-working PS2 has suddenly developed a case of the DREs, there is a good chance it can be fixed.
Disclaimer: While I have tried to make this guide as accurate and concise as possible, I take no responsibility for any damage you may cause. In addition, any alterations to your PS2 may void your warranty. Proceed at your own risk.
What you need
Before attempting the fix described below, read through this guide completely in order to familiarize yourself with the steps involved. Once that is done, gather the following items.
• Standard Phillips screwdriver
• #0 Phillips screwdriver (or eyeglass-sized)
• Cotton swabs
• Isopropyl rubbing alcohol
• Felt-tip pen or marker
Optional cleaning tools.
• Can of compressed air
PS2 Tip No. 1: It's best to use a vacuum for cleaning the dust from electronic devices. Wiping the surface or dusting with compressed air may force contaminants inside of the device, making things worse.
Screws and stickers
Before you do anything, disconnect the PS2's power and video connections. On the bottom of the PS2 are 10 square-shaped screw covers. Four of these double as rubber feet for the PS2 (when the device is laying flat.) Remove these covers to access and remove the screws. Some of the screws will be longer/shorter than the others so keep track of what goes where.
Removing the case
Once you've removed the screws, it's time to break the seal and completely void whatever warranty you may have had. Seriously, there is a "warranty seal" sticker near the PS2's power connector that must be removed in order to gain entrance to the innards of the beast.
With the screws removed and the warranty sticker "void," gently turn the PS2 right side up. Carefully remove the top cover by lifting the back edge and pulling it toward the front of the unit until it clears the controller jacks as well as the front of the disc tray.
You'll notice a metallic ribbon or white wires (depending on your PS2's age) connecting the main base to the eject/play buttons on the top cover. Remove the tape that normally holds this wire in place and set the top cover off to the side. Don't try to disconnect the ribbon/wires. There should be enough slack for the cover to lie off to the side.
Before moving on to the disc tray cover, now is a good time to blow out the dust that has collected around the fan and main circuit board. A can of compressed air will do the job nicely.
PS2 Tip No. 2: Always operate a PS2 in its prone position. Standing a PS2 vertically looks cool, but it seems to cause more problems than it's worth.
With the PS2 splayed open, the disc tray cover removed, and the unit plugged in, eject the disc tray.
Toward the back of the PS2, behind the laser, is a white gear about 0.75-inches in diameter. This gear adjusts the distance between the disc surface and the laser's eye. It's also the key to fixing a PS2 that frequently suffers from disc read errors (DREs.) On the left side of the white gear will be a notched metal tab or a smaller brass-colored gear.
Use a felt-tip pen to mark the white gear at the point it contacts the tab/smaller gear. This provides a reference point for the original position of the gear as we prepare to make our adjustment(s). Now would be a good time to gently clean the laser's eye using a cotton swab dampened with a bit of rubbing alcohol.
Adjusting the gear position in order to fix DREs involves the following steps.
• Turn the white gear a notch or two (clockwise or counterclockwise)
• Replace disc cover (holding it in place with your hand)
• Insert a DVD
• If it works, insert a purple game disc
• If it works, insert an audio CD
• If all three work, you are finished.
If any of the disc types fail to be read follow these steps.
• Eject the disc
• Remove the disc tray cover
• Move the gear a notch or two (perhaps in the other direction)
• Replace disc cover (holding it in place with your hand)
• Retest until all three disc types are properly detected
Once you have correctly positioned the gear and all disc types are reading properly, reassemble your PS2 and get gaming!
This guide describes how to adjust the distance between the disc surface and laser pickup. I have read reports of DREs being caused by improper laser voltage levels, and this fix will do nothing for that type of problem. DREs caused by an incorrect gap between the laser and disc appear more common with early PS2 units, as they used a small spinning gear as the stop rather than the notched tab found in later models.
I read that and you put this
"the disk eye cant always be scleaned as good as it used to be with out taking it out and dipping it in alcohol or somthing so what you do is clean it as best you can and move the eye untill it can read it and if you dont want to open your ps2 then turn it on then reset it and flip it onto its back "
also and I thought that would work, thing is I"m too afraid to open up my PS2 so I guess it's my loss... :(
Oh whoopdido I got X-Men Legends and it doesn't work at all
Ooooo I feel for ya watashi. You tried taking it to a shop and asking what the hell is going on yet? First ask them, don't take your PS2 to them just yet, just ask. Cause then if they open your PS2...they'll start charging you, at least thats what happened to me. I took my PS to this dude and he opened it and all that crap and told me it was broke...when I clearly knew it was. Plus I had to pay the damn guy and he didn't even do anything!!! -_-" He wouldn't put my PS back together until I paid him...
I'm not sure but does EB Games do that? I'm not sure...it plays my games fine and stuff just not newer games...I maybe ne a replacement lens so it can read it...?
Call SCEA I called SCEC and they offered to fix it for free all I had to do was pay for shipping and handling, but of course I was to lazy to do that and fixed it my self but if you don't want to open it that is the way to go. as I said it is most likely incorrect gap inbetween disk and eye so I don't think you would be getting replacement parts.
actually I HAVE gotten it fixed before...It got fixed to test and see if it worked fine, so my PS2 HAS BEEN OPENED....
-I dunno ;_;
