Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
It was working fine til yesterday, then all I can see on the tv screen is browser and system config. when i go into browser or system config. everything seems to be normal, but the ps2 does not read the disc., help!
First you need to define what it IS and IS NOT reading. You'll need to run some tests.
Test 1: use a regular music CD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and put that into your ps2 and see if it starts playing it.
Test 2: insert a regular DVD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and try to play that.
If neither will play then it is one of two things. Your laser lens is out of alignment, or your laser lens is damaged.
If one plays but not the other, it is the potentiometer pots on the back of the PS2 lens that need adjusting. You can read more about that on one of my other posts ::.HERE.::

SOURCE: ps2 not reading disc.
Theres a high chance that your laser simply broke. You should let someone with solder experience let replace the PS2 laser.
You can buy the laser on websites like this one: http://www.consoleparts4u.co.uk
