Two kids next door said there ps2 would not work so i give them my old ps1 with lots of games the next time they come round they said that the ps1 games would play on there ps2 so i said i would try and find out if there was any thing we could do. I will try and clean the lens and give them a ps2 game i know that works to try.thanks for your help.Scooter

Try standing the PS2 on it's side and see if the games will work.

I know it sounds daft but it worked for me.
