God of War 1 and 2(Unable to read disc)!
Check your cd if it can play in different ps2 consoles. if it can, then theres nothing wrong with the cd.
probably your game console has problems on disk reading.
FIX Those Ps2 disk errors.
You're going to be surprised when you find out how easy this is. Read
the instructions all the way through before you attempt the repair just
so you'll be familiar with the entire process. First take off the outer
cover of you PS2. If you haven't done this before, you will have to
remove all the screw covers from the bottom of the unit, both plastic
and rubber, these will be the only screws you will have to remove in
order to take off the outer cover.
To remove the outer cover, lift up from the rear of the unit and pull
towards the front in order to clear the controller jacks and the
eject/close buttons. As you remove the outer cover you will notice a
small metallic ribbon cable inside the machine leading to the
eject/close and reset buttons on the front of the unit, this cable is
usually taped to the top of the disc tray. This cable is not a
sensitive as it appears; just remove the tape holding the ribbon cable.
Once the outer cover is off you need to remove the cover to the disc
tray, this will require a rather small phillips screwdriver (I've seen
a few that use a standard slotted screw). Now that the tray cover is
off, the first thing to do is to clean the laser eye. All you will need
is a Q-Tip dipped in alcohol. Just swab the eye a few times and allow
it to dry on its own, making sure that no lint was left behind from the
After the cover is off of the disk tray and the laser
has been cleaned you will need to plug the unit back in, (The unit
needs to be hooked up to a TV as well to test it while you have it
open. You should have a DVD, a game disk with a silver or gold back and
one with a purple back in order to fine tune the system to play all
three.) It will be necessary to have the unit powered up to perform the
repair. Press the eject button so that the tray slides forward exposing
the undercarriage. At the back of the unit you should see a small
white, geared wheel about the size of a quarter. This little bastard is
the cause of all your problems.
This wheel changes the angle in which the disk is held. You will notice
that there is a small metal tab that holds the wheel in place. Take a
felt-tip marker and mark the point on the wheel that meets the tab.
That way you will always know the original position that the wheel was
in. Now that the orig. position has been marked, feel free to spin the
wheel for a few full rotations in order to see how it changes the
angle. It will only alter the angle a few degrees before it goes back
to zero, after it reaches the maximum angle it will go back to flat
after each full rotation. Once you've toyed with it to see how it
works, put the wheel back to the original position that you have
marked. Then advance the wheel about 1/8 of a turn and place the disk
tray cover back on top of the disk tray. (You will not need to screw
the tray cover back down in order to test the machine; you will only
need to hold down the cover with your fingers while trying to load/test
a disk) Now place a DVD in the tray and press the eject/close button in
order to close the tray and load the DVD (hold down the cover as
explained above). Wait to see if the DVD loads, you may have to use the
browser in order to load each disk you test. If the DVD loads, eject it
and load a silver backed disk, if that loads try a purple backed disk.
If all three loaded successfully, congratulations you're finished. If
not, remove the tray cover, eject the disk and advance the wheel
another 1/8 turn and repeat the process. It just a matter of finding an
angle that will facilitate the operation of all three types of disks.
Once you've found the proper angle and the system is operating to its
full potential, close it up and let'er rip. I also do not recommend
placing the PS2 on its side once you have fixed it. Although Sony says
they recommend it in the owner manual, I have since seen internal Sony
documents retracting the statement and attributing many malfunctions to
storing and operating the unit on its side. Keep it flat at all times.
well. i hope this works.
pm me if problems continue.
Thanks : )
