Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

My PS2 tried to read the damn disc but nothing happens after I tried several times for an entire hour! I know my system is kind of old (maybe 6 years old) but why? The first time I put the game one, it took me 5 times before the game worked. Now, it failed while trying to read it. Why???

    How is it failing? Is it showing a code? A "No Data Found", or is it just not showing anything?

I need some help with my ps 2 it has been giveing me these disc read errors and i toke it apart from the memory card holders to the fan in the back of my system the only problum is i dont know how to open...


Hi there,

You don't want to open the disc drive, you want to clean the laser lens. That's the part that looks like this:
http://www.gamekool.com/ps2-laser-lens-pvr802w-p-307.html

If cleaning the lens doesn't resolve the problem, that same website also has a means of purchasing a replacement. If you just want to clean the inside of the disc drive, put the PS2 back together and open up the tray.

Clean everything with a cotton swab, including the laser lens.

Hope this helps.

Please insert ps2 format disc?


Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Going to the console browser instead of reading disc


Hi Morquea, I believe you have the PS2 Slim model. This model has a laser with plastic housing and when it tries to read a disc for along time like hours, the lens housing begins to melt. You may be experiencing this and the process of melting is slow, so no way of knowing what wil happen since the laser adjusts itself to focus in on the media. One day or one disc might work, and another wont. I normally see Blue colored PS2 discs work and silver colored disc not work. This is a tell tale signof melting. Sony did not buiuld the slim as tough as the previous fat Versions. This helps them save money on Shipping and raw metarial costs. When the Laser automatically adjusts focus all day, it gets extremely hot and melts. You need a new laser. I can solve your problem there by replacing the laser for you for $32 plus shipping. contact me through www.playstatiopnclinic.com.

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.
