Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

My Playstation 2 isn't working again

Hi, you recently answered a question I had about my PS2 where it wasn't playing games and you suggested cleaning it. The cleaning worked for a few weeks but now my PS2 is malfunctioning again. It makes this loud clicking noise and keeps locking up. Can you tell me how to align my laser lens, like you suggested previously?

Try to play a game that you don't usually play.
If it's clicking might need to check the three little needs in the center of the cd tray one might have fallen and it's inside the cd tray and could be scratching up your games

SOURCE: Disks wont spin on new laser

Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.

SOURCE: Disk wont spin

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.

SOURCE: playstation 3 screen freezes while playting games

It rarely actually helps to clean the laser for the PS3. It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

The game cannot be read on our ps2, but the ps2 works for other games. the disk looks fine. what can we try to get this game to play?


Even if the game isn't scratched, you should try holding it under a light to see if there are any fingerprints or smudges on the disc. You can try cleaning the disc with a lint-free cloth if you've got one, though I've never had trouble with a cotton t-shirt. Wipe from the center of the disc straight towards the outer edge. Do this for the entire disc and try it again.

If that doesn't work, please update this issue with the error message you're seeing if any. Does the disc show up in the PS2 browser? Do you get a disc read error? Does the screen just go black when you try to play the game?

PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console: not reading disk...


Playstation 2's are very sensitive to outside elements that get in it, such as dust or dirt, I suggest you clean your lens with some canned air, Personally I disassemble mine and clean every inch of mine using canned air, Q-tips, rubbing alcohol or purer, and WD-40 to lubericate the bearings and plays like I bought it yesterday. Hopefully these will answer your questions if your playstation 2 has never suffered damage by any blows or impacts.

2 PS1 games in almost perfect condition arn't working on PS2


Try wiping the disks in a circular motion with a cotton t-shirt, tissue or cleaning cloth, then try again. If it still doesn't work, try a PS2 game. If it works, try another PS1 game. If the other PS1 game doesn't work, the PS1 part of your PS2 system may be broken. Your PS2 has, inside of it, a miniaturized PS1. If that mini-PS1 breaks, you can't play PS1 games. If the PS2 game doesn't work, you probably need a lens repair. If the other PS1 game works, then your games are defective and you should get new ones.
