Disk read error on newer PS2 games


the laser lens has been knocked off kilter it may need replaced, although the whole dvd drive is much easier to install and can be purchased for less than $30.

Ps2 says disc cannot be read


if this only happens with one disk then there may be scratches or a burn mark on the disk, if this happens more often with more of your disks then the laser may need replacing.

When this happens with my sons disks, I wipe the disk over with white spirit and try again, works with some disks but not all of them.

It may also be that the laser just needs cleaning. You can buy disks that can do this with a special brush on the underside.

I hope this helps

PS2 Read Error


I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. REmove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the REset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Remove the Cd tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the Cd area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. REmove the little white disc from the Cd tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and your in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for Repair. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
