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.

Look around online and there should be a detailed description of how to fix it. Do you have the old ps2 or the new slim one? If its the older, bigger one, the laser is probably out of alignment. There is a gear to adjust it in the disc tray. There should be a diagram online somewhere showing you how to unscrew and take it apart, and where exactly the gear is so you can see it yourself before taking apart. Just leave the ps2 apart, and keep opening the tray and adjusting the gear to different cogs, and eventually it should read the disc. Just be careful not to accidentally unplug any of the little power supply plugs in there, they're really hard to get to to put back in. Hope that helps!

Hey Ive got the same problem with mine. but I keep ejecting the disc and reinserting it and it reads eventually. having the ps2 down rather than upright seems to help it to read more aften also

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.

It says..please insert a playstaion or playstation 2 disc format.


It's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken

Will not load some games


I had the same problem with my ps2. I found a solution that might help you. take a Q-tip and dip it in rubbing alcohol or water just intil damp. gently clean the eye and the rest of the disk tray. then dry it the other end of the Q-tip. when the eye dirty with dust or a hair or a small speck of paper or plastic from a disk will slow the ps2 down when loading. hope this helps!

My ps2 wont read the disk. says there is no data. help


it's your laser with something like dust keeping it from reading the discs. Just get a simple CD cleaner kit, one that has the little brush on it and then of course put some solution on it. Rubbing alchol will due. This happens to everyone eventually.

Should do the trick.

If it doesn't do it after playing the cleaning disk three times for around 10 secs each, then you may want to open it up and put clean the laser lens directly with a rubbing alchol soaked que tip and a dry one. For more instructions on how to open it do a search on fixya and there is one guru who goes into great detail about this.

Maybe you need to wait a few days for it to work again, or maybe you can replace the disk drive.

Won't load or play disc or dvd


It's a well known fact PS2's had a cheap lazer fitted to them, that's why when it gets chiped to play copy games, not long after it starts playing up. The lazer may just need aligning, purchase a cd/dvd cleaning cd rom as these can check audio, lazer alignment and clean the lens.
