Hi, the discs will spin ??? The bubble in top right corner don't stop spinning ???
If you answered NOT the first and YES the second question ...... Then you probably have a defective laser lens like my 40 GB purchased in 2008-Nov.
You have 2 choices: 1- Send it for repair (With warranty) 2- Fix it your self.
It's no complicated, I did it. Just buy a laser replacement and do it. Look for videos in Youtube.com and will see that it's so easy.

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.

My ps3 stopped playing ps2 games


Hi, it sounds like your laser may be dirty or need replaced. First try to run a laser lens cleaner through it. If it won't read the cleaner, then try to blow out the DVD drive with some canned air or with an air compressor. If that dosen't help then your laser is probably burned out and needs replaced. This is a very common problem with the PS2 and PS3 systems. Remember that a PS3 has 2 lasers in it so it might still read Blu-ray discs and not anything else, but the red laser for the DVD,CD,PS1&2 games might be burned out.

Won't read PS2 discs


what has probably happened is that when you dropped it the part which recognises ps2 games was damaged so the best thing to do is take it to a repair shop or phoe the sony helpline.

PS3 wont play disc's


If you have problem with loading your disk or some kind of media a most common error is Disk Read Error,or in a short way DRE.
Ps3 Laser is a very precise mechanism and optic and also a well none proble for the all machine right now on the Market.
Sony had the same problem before with PS2 and tried to fix the same issue all ready but without any luck at all.Actually i do believe is Part of the Market Strategy making the laser not to strong so people can buy new laser and keep the techical support alive.Most common error on Ps3 is DRE and some other like power supply Failure or Hd defective.
What is sad actually the fact the laser is Collapsing onthe spot.
On the ps2 you have some time to realize the laser is bad since the machine start not reading well or freezing during the game.On ps3 the laser stop working and that`s it.
I suggest to replace laser or try to clean first because sometimes if you are lucky the laser start working again
