Is my PS2 broken?
purchased the game Ico and popped it into the PS2. The opening trailer came up fine, but when it loaded into the game there was no video. The sound worked fine. When I was walking I could hear footsteps and background music. However, the screen was black. I checked on a walkthrough, and it is not supposed to be blank.
My previous PS2 (first generation) eventually lost its ability to play CD-ROM games. Now, the Ico disc is a CD-ROM, so I tested my other CD-ROM games for the PS2. All of them worked fine except for Ico. I am trying to make it work on my old PS2, but it takes me many dozens of attempts to load the game up if that is even still possible.
I should note that I swapped the Ico disk because I figured it was broken at first. So this is my 2nd attempt with the same error. Does anybody have a clue as to what is going on?

borrow someone else's PS2 and see if it works in theirs. Connect your PS2 to another TV and see if its the same thing.
Its either the Disc, the PS2 or the tv ... eliminate what does and doesnt work.

The PS2 that can't read discs just needs the laser replaced. Easy to do and the part can be found on ebay. You don't need the entire drive assembly, just the laser."Opinions not based on knowledge are ugly things"
