PS2 Problem

#1
Hi, dont know if anyone can help me or not but I have a PS2 System and it plays PS2 games just fine but it wont play PS1 games. Is there anything I can do to fix this or is it just a glitch I have to live with?

Have you gone into the browser menu to see if the disk can be loaded from there. If you have, does it say disc read error?

Im not sure how old the system is as it was bought of Ebay. The man *said* its about 2yrs old and it seems to be in good shape. I havent gotten it to play any PS1 games but as said before, the PS2 games play fine.

when you turn on ur ps2. there is a menu that says browser. click it. u will see a blank screen unless you have anything inserted. e.g mem cards or disc.

now insert your disc and wait for it to load. if it comes up with a disc logo press x. if it says disc read error or none at all then the disc must be dodgy or your ps2 needs fixing.

I havent tried that yet but I will when I get home. My question is what could be wrong w/my PS2 if it should say or do that? Would it be hard or expensive to fix or is it something simple? Sorry for all the questions.

Well, maybe there was a reason it was on eBay in the first place.

Heres a list of the PS1 games that don't work on PS2. All the rest are supposed to work.

If the games you are having trouble with are not on the list is there any chance the original owner "mod'd" the play station to beat disk copy protection? That might affect backward compatibility also.

Oops and this too. "A 2005 verison of the PS2 is not a backwards compatioble as the older ones." But yours should be older than this version.

If it is modded try switching of at mains then switch on at mains. Hold the power buttong down for 3-4 seconds then let go ,this may work for PS1 games and you will need to power off again to play the PS2 games after.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
