If its the slim line version, open the door where the game goes in, just toward the back there's a little round thing which looks like a tiny glass stud, this is the laser, wipe it over with an alcohol wipe or damp tissue and then dry off, then try the game again. It worked for me so hopefully it'll get you up and running.

Disk read error, turn console on goes to system configuration press x goes to mem card and says reading disk then says disk read error


This is a result of one of two things-

1) Your disc is dirty, damaged, or scratched. To fix this just clean it gently with a wet cloth, if it still doesnt work you can take it to a game store to have it cleaned there. It is possible that it is scratched to much and is unable to read at all.

2) Your Playstation 2's reading laser has become damaged or dirty. I suggest blowing air through the system with your mouth or preferably a can of compressed air which can be purchase at most retail stores.

This error seems most likely to be a disc issue.

When I put a disk into the console, the disk won't load and says Disk Read Error. I've cleaned the disk many times, but it still won't work.


laser lens might be dirty.
if your laser lens is easily accessable, use a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol to clean it. use other side of q-tip to dry lens.
you could also use a laser lens cleaner for video game systems.
hope this helps :D

When i put a disc ...the screen goes black and then it says error reading disc please press the eject button and turn the console off. what do i do?


The cause here is the Drive itself is ether dirty or showing signes of intermittency now the folks at www.videogamerepair.com can take this into consideration and have it repaired for you if its under warranty or not give them a try. Otherwise you might need to have nontendo get involved.

Thanks

My ps2 isn't reading the disks, all it ever gives me is a disk read error or it goes to a screen that says "please insert Playstation or playstation2 compact disk." No matter what i try, i can't get it to...


Laser needs to be replaced or the dvd drive swapped since you already cleaned the laser and the motor. You can do a search on google to see if you can pick up a cheap one or go on Ebay to look as well. You already took the steps I would have done to troubleshoot the problem.

Wont spin or read disk


Try cleaning the laser arm.if your console is pretty old like mine I try replacing the laser arm i picked mine up for a fiver on ebay, and it did the job of fixing disk read errors, over time the arm can wear down so the disks arent read properly.

How do u make ur rock band 1 and 2 disk read again on slim ps2


Your Laser is starting to go. Clean the discs, resurface them if they are really scratched, and try blowing some compressed air in and around the laser.

Don't blow the air directly on the laser lens though, it could cause more damage.

if those don't work, you can try boosting the power to the laser (voids your warranty) or get the laser replaced.

Dispaly cannot read disk


DONT FORGET TO RATE SOLUTION

1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

2. IF THE LASER CLEANING DON'T WORK ON YOUR PS2 SYSTEM PERFORMANCE THEN TRY ADJUSTING THE LASER VOTAGE.

3. IF THE LASER VOTAGE DON'T WORK YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE LASER

Hi,
your laser is weak or faulty.
Try using a laser head cleaning disk, or have a replacement laser fitted.
