Default PS2 problems...

sponsored links
Hi guys, hopefully someone can help me out.

My brother brought a PS2 from his friend. It came with 2 original games(NBA Street and State of Emergency). They were working fine for a few days. Then I visited hi for Christmas and brought my GS2 and some DVD-Rs for him to use. I used the knife method to boot the games, and found that it didn't work. So I checked on here and found that his 39001 V. 7 PS2 doesn't work with the knife method.

Afterwards he tried to play NBA Street and it sounded like the PS2 was going to blow up. Then he tried State of Emergency and it worked perfectly fine.

Today he brought 3 more original games for it(NFL2K3, Legion: Legend of Excalibur, and Unreal Tournament). 2 of the 3 work flawlessly, but Unreal Tournament sounds like the PS2 is going to explode. I figured out that it won't read CD image games anymore. It can read DVDs fine, but original CD PS2 games don't work. PSX CDs also don't work.

Does anyone know why this is? Or how to fix it?

Thanks guys!

*UPDATE*- I just tried some PSX games and they booted fine and others didn't boot.

Also, the PS2 games that wouldn't boot are the blue bottom ones. I've read that this is a common problem.
