I think it might be scratched by the edge of the metal piece on which is the laser. Not much of a solution, I know.

Playstation2 will not play black discs


Are there any visible scratches on the black discs? If so i would recommend getting them resurfaced at your local game store.
If there is no damage to the disk then it is more likely than not down to the PS2 laser, as they get older they struggle to read more and more until they will only read perfect white disks or nothing at all. Give the laser a good clean with some solvent, being careful not to scratch it.

How to repair scratched PS2 Games?


Although the<span style="font-weight: bold;"> PS3 </span>is becoming popular, many of us decided to stay with the <span style="font-weight: bold;">PS2</span>. There are more games, cheaper products, and more buying opportunities. Hey, you can even download<span style="font-weight: bold;"> PS2 games</span> on the Internet. Of course, these games will get a lot of use (because they are awesome!) And finally, you want to know how to fix scratched PS2 games. This article will help you.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Is it merely scratched or dirty?</span><br /><br />Sometimes the problem is not our game from scratch. Seriously, read a lot of PS2 games down scratches, but it is really a problem, is covered with gook. Try cleaning the disc before trying to set up out of nowhere (or maybe to work evil that is needed).<br /><br />It is scratched! How can you solve this problem?<br /><br />It's actually really easy to fix scratched PS2 games. This is what you need.<br /><br />Baking Soda Toothpaste<br /><br />lint-free cloth (eyeglasses cloth is perfect)<br /><br />Before you begin, you should know that this is not a good idea to erase your hard disk in circles. Unlike the old records (which had to follow the path), PS2 should rub right center to outer edge. Cleaning does more harm circles and want to avoid that.<br /><br />5 easy steps to fix scratched PS2 games<br /><br />Put a little 'slide of warm water.<br /><br />apply a little toothpaste on your rag<br /><br />RUB (as shown) at the height of the area and around it. If you have lots of scratches, so do the whole disk. 10-15 slides from the inside to the outside should do the trick.<br /><br />rinse the toothpaste<br /><br />let the disc dry air<br /><br />See? It is not difficult to fix scratches on ps2 at all. There is a problem with this method, however, you can do it too often. Know that you are cutting down on the plastic surface to crack some PS2 feel low. If you do it too often, so you do not have a plastic bumper on the left and the data layer of aluminum foil to be destroyed. Serious problems (or repeated injury), the best thing is to go back to the plate.<br /><br />

The playstation got really sensitive with reading disks


Sounds like you need to clean the lens on your PS2. The best solution is to find a DVD player lens cleaner from a local electronics store (make sure it is a good quality one, don't buy the cheapest one) and put it into your PS2 disc tray. It will play the disc using the DVD player on the PS2. Make sure you follow the directions for the lens cleaner very carefully, as you don't want to accidentally scratch your lens.

That should help with the reading issues. Good luck!

My Ps2 guitar hero plays Guitar hero #3 perfectly fine, but the other one Guitar Hero Rocks the 80's wont play at all. We were not able to get the World Tour to play at all. What gives?


Check the bottom of the disc it may be dirty or scratched. If its dirty then clean it with rubbing alcohol, if scratched you'll have to buy a scratch remover.

TOOTHPASTE DOSNT WORK!!! WUT WILL


Hello.

Xbox DVD-Drive's often scratch circles into your discs and some even got malfunctioning lasers that will burn rings into games.
To prevent the circular scratched from happening avoid moving your console at any time while it is running however it often also occurs just in regular use especially for older consoles with Hitachi or Samsung drives.
As far as I know Microsoft replaces discs that were clearly damaged by a console free of charge, at least here in Europe they do.
Try calling Xbox Customer Support and ask for a replacement it is worth a try for sure even if they shouldnt replace it they will at least give you a 1-month subscription for Xbox LIVE in exchange.

I hope this helps and Good luck!

Kind regards,
