    Loaded Game: AIR MAX Action Replay. Now no other games will play. Goes to System Browser screen & "Read Disc Error".

    My PS2 was working just fine a few weeks ago. I come home for Thanksgiving and it doesn't read any game or CD I put in.

Everytime I turn the PS2 on it goes straight to a page or something where it says Browser and System configuration. How do I fix it so it can just go straight to the game?

your laser lens might be dirty.
try cleaning it with a laser lens cleaner for video game systems (sold at walmart, target, best buy, etc.).
if you have the newer, skinnier redesigned PS2, you can use a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol (not dripping).
gently touch it to the laser lens and gently twirl it.
use other end of q-tip to dry lens, gently twirling it.
hope this helps :D

Not recognizing disk

My PS2 always does that now. Just make sure it's reading the disc in the System Browser, and it'll play fine.

It sounds like the disk reader could be damaged. PS2 is an old console so I think it is just dying. You could try this. How to Fix PS2 Disk Read Errors

It wont work

try and change the settings on your ps2
on the screen that says browser and system configuration press triangle.this will take you to another screen. while Playstation Driver is highlited press triangle again. this will take you to a screen that will allow you to adjust the way in which your ps2 reads discs that are inserted. try changing the settings to fast nd smooth
also some times you just have to insert the game over and over again until it works. its kinda like breaking in a new pair of shoes
