Ps2 not reading game cd

Recently my PS2 console is not reading ps2 games but it reads audio cd's very well. I bought this console in Canada three years ago & it's not modified, is there a solution to this problem?

    My PS2 (77000 series) will not spin at all. Is this the lens motor? Can I just replace that or do I need to buy a whole new system?

    Try turning the PS2 on it's side when you put in the PS2 game. This is a common issue when the lens motor is starting to go out. If it is already on it's side try rotating the PS2 all over the place right after you insert the game. If that still doesn't fix it you will have to go buy a new PS2...



    My PS2 is on it's last leg, will probably have to go get a new ps2 here shortly.

I bought a used PS 2. I get to the browser screen but it's not reading the game I put in.


Try other games and music cd's. If the ps2 isn't reading any discs you put in, then the laser is bad and would need to be replaced. Look on Ebay for a ps2 laser for thru google shopping.

MY ps2 Doesnt read PS2 Cd games


If you are trying to read a burnt game, you need it chipped first. If not, maybe your game is burnt or scratched. Some video stores will fix them for free. (Movie Gallery is where I go)

Ps2 error


See if you can play an Audio CD. if you cannot then your Laser CD reading circuit is out of adjustment. Clean the lens and try and if that doesnt work, Add refridgerator magnet to the white clamp that hold the Disc on the Drive spindle. Use a Maghifying glas to get a close look at your Laser lens, and clean off any lint or smudges.
