Ps2 problems

I wonder if one of you smart guys can help. Got a
play station 2 (yea, I know)…reads dvd, cd’s but no games…Why?

Doesn’t read any games at all? original or backups? is the Ps2 new?

It is not a new console. It will not play any games at all. We found this thing doing a make-ready on an apartment. I can only assume that is why it was left behind. But, if I(we) can get it working, why not! I appreciate any help you can lend.
