Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I have read your posts about the PS2 Slimline laser replacement and I appreciate your information. My PS2 is not a slimline, but will not read the CD. It just spins and tries.
I am not experienced with small electronics, but I opened it up and it looks to me like the laser is trying to focus. It is moving in and out, over and over.
Additionally, the plastic clip that attaches the laser to the spinning screw to move it horizontally appears to be failing to grip the screw and move the laser. When I turn that screw by hand, the laser does not move, except sometimes the laser "jumps" like it is trying to move with the screw.
Do you have any suggestions?
Eric I have the same problem!! The problem started I inserted a SPECOPS PS1 disc in to my PS2. I've played it a lot of times before. But once it just stuck on the loading screen and didn't proceed to the game. I pressed the reset button and after that It doesnt read any disc. It tries to read the disc but no use. It shows DISC read error after some time
IT IS THE EYE. the eye th the little shiny piece that you can bairly see once the tray comes out.you might have put a disk in at a wrong position and scratched the eye. replacing it might be what to do, but i would check first.

Ok now that you see the reasons, it is more likely you need a new laser. go to Ebay and buy you one. They are fairly simple to change. Call or email me when you get a New laser. My information is at www.playstationclinic.com Hope this helps you.

First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.
There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
