Default NEW PS2 FAQ starting......Right here, come & add to it....

sponsored links
We have decided to start a new PS2 FAQ......the old one was rather old &
chips have come a long way.

[b]Please DO NOT post questions in the FAQ's[/b]
These are for information only, post any questions in the regular forums.

This is just the draft, not the official FAQ......we need new input!

Im starting with what GS version to use:

"blue_mosquit0o says:

PS2 Version 5 - Any Game Shark version 1.93 or higher

PS2 Version 4 - Any Game Shark version higher than 1.4

PS2 Version 3 - Any Game Shark version works

PS2 Version 2 - Without needing to patch EA games use version 1.3, 1.6, 1.7 or 1.9 Otherwise, any version GS will work but EA games will need to be patched.

PS2 Version 1 - Without needing to patch EA games use version 1.3, 1.6, 1.7 or 1.9 Otherwise, any version GS will work but EA games will need to be patched."

Board URLS people are sure to need:

Winning Eleven topics of any kind

What version is my PS2?:

Mod Chips needed:
Mod chips for sale/wanted & anything remotely related to that.

Looking for or providing PS2 parts & Services? Or need parts/services/advice cause you messed up something?Use:

I want to get all these topics together.

Also, if you need it, there is a search engine (You can't search for anything that is three letters or less):

BTW, this is one of the first 4 permanent messages that you read first in the forum.

Default Disc Read ERROR


Note:Try this if your ps2 keeps reading "Disc Error" or stops working while playing a game immediatly:

1)First turn on your ps2 and take out anything not sony and the game in the disc drive

2)Hit reset.

3)Hit triangle when the browser and system configuration comes up

4)Go up to "Console Version" and hit triangle.

5)Turn on "Diagnosis" and hit Circle twice to get back to the browser and system Configuration. And whatever you do, do NOT hit reset!

6)Put in the game and go into the "Browser" and it should work.

If my disks don't read or read now & then I clean them under running water & pat dry. Before doing this, verify the laser can read cd's or dvds by putting in a fresh one (I like to use the psx GS

For dirty lasers:
Get a can of compressed air & trying cleaning the laser through the door opening first. I would suggest unplugging the ps2 because some cans of air leak fluids when you spray strongly.

Wet cdrom/dvd drive cleaners should work alright (Haven't tried them myself). Be sure to read the instructions, so some them specify that you cannot use the machine for FIFTEEN minutes after cleaning (needs to dry). Cleaners that use only brushes won't get rid of oil stains on the laser.
