hi linzy222

where did you buy it from ??

First.. In now way am I recommending this... (i.e. if it breaks anything, please don't blame me).

Apparently your problem is caused by the spin-speed of the blue discs and the fact that they rattle around inside PS2s...

There are some interesting suggestions for fixes in another message board...


including taking the PS2 to pieces or sticking tape in specific places on the disc...

Anyway, make of it what you will, but it seems that you certainly aren't alone in having problems with blue-backed discs on the PS2.

Good luck

Let me know how you get on... it seems well dodgy, having to stick tape on your PS2 discs, but I'm intrigued.... :D

If it's having problems playing Blue disks I wouldn't go pulling it apart, if it's still within it's warranty either return it to the Point of Sale, or if you've registered your PS2 then call the Playstation Helpline and they should be able to replace it!

Don't take the cover off it, as there is a black sticker on the back that as soon as you take it off it's marks it as void and you could fluff your warranty!

Hope this helps if you haven't had it sorted already hehe!

We haven't tried taking it apart yet either but i might phone the manufactura (spelt wrong but u know what i mean lol) and find out why its not playing blue disc's and what do we do!!
