When i play any game nd when the game is start so my screen pop up and in the bottom it shows black screen nd the game is pop up i play on half tv nd the half tv is black plz tell me any solution


It's because your disk tray is too high up put pressure onto the top of the tray with the disk in and lid closed and it will load up. If it stops when you remove pressure keep something heavy on it

Are you trying to play copied games ?

if not - it's possible that the laser has problems to read the games.

most people are saying thet the laser is defective and needs to be replaced.

but i had a few ps2's with laser problems and all of them were only dirty - the dust is "burnt" on the laser. i've cleaned them with a slightly wet microfibre cloth and that was it - the are all running without any problem

Try to buy a new MEMORY CARD. Some ps2's are starting the console from memory cards. Your system configuration in memory card might be corrupted or deleted.
