Turn on my PS2 and I get a read disc error. Can I have the directions to fix this?


Disc Read Errors (DREs)

The PlayStation 2 was infamous for the number of disc read errors that occurred. There are a number of causes for this problem and a number of fixes:

  1. Clean the disc: Dust or smudges from fingerprints can cause disc reading problems. Use a high quality cleaning cloth and remove all smudges from the disc by lightly wiping outward from the center hub. Do not use a circular motion.
  2. Clean the disc drive: If not the disc itself, dust buildup in the drive is often the culprit. For the tech savvy, you may remove the disc drive, and gently clean the assembly with a cleaning cloth. For a less intrusive approach, use a can of compressed air, and attempt to blow the dust out from the vents and the disc tray, though this may also cause dust to settle where it is not desired.
  3. Repair the disc: If your game disc is scratched, it is sometimes possible to recover the disc with a disc repair kit.
  4. Ensure proper venthilation: To avoid overheating, make sure that your PlayStation 2 is placed in a well ventilated area, and that the vents are not obstructed.

I was just wondering, IF the PS2 can play games that have been edited on a computer/laptop (e.g. 4-disc PS1 game put onto one disc), and not edited as in the actual game disc being edited, but put on a...


Your system needs a mod chip to play games on a disc that was not created by Sony.
Most ps2 games are DVD's only some are cd's.. All of the ps1 games are cd's so if you burnt it onto a dvd its not going to work.

When you put in the dics, and on the screen says not reading disc


Disc read errors are mainly due to weak or dirty lens you should try cleaning lens first.
When your PS2 lens is covered by dust it wont allow laser to read disc so its better to clean your PS2 lens first,if problem still exists then your PS2 lens is weak and you will have to take it to Sony repairer for service.I recommend all of PS2 owners to keep their PS2 at dust free environment.

Watch this video it will help you to learn how to clean your PS2,its easy you can do it at home.
Wish you good luck and hope cleaning lens will solve your problem. Thank you!

My PS2 will not read my discs


remove the cover, take out the two tiny philips head screws from the cover on the drive and clean the lens with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Do this gently! use compressed air to remove the dust collected inside the unit and then reassemble.

You could try flashing the firmware..just a shot in the dark, but what the heck, you got nothing to loose. Instructions can be found at the PS2 website.

Ps2- disk cannot be read is it just scratched?


hello try cleaning disc and lense..if disc has scratches .ones that go straight across disc are not to bad but if they follow disc in a circle ,lens will follow scratch as it is reading.when cleaning disc use a cleaner as any thing else will scratch..also try another game to see if your lens is okay .they can fail for no reason.

It's likely the lazer lens is out of alignment or requires replacing. Did your dvd cleaner also have a lens aligning part to it, you normally go through a spoken instruction(go to track 2 etc), as cleaning is sometimes not the only required solution.
