Disc read errors are mainly due to worn out lens or dirty PS2
lens.Clean your PS2 lens to get rid of this problem if your lens is
dirty.Watch this video it will help you to know how to clean your PS2
lens.Watch it carefully.
Remember to keep your PS2 in Dust free environment if you don't want your PS2 lens to get dirty. If your PS2 can not play certain games like Rock band try this tip:
Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
Menu screen will appear like:
Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like
Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press (triangle).
New screen will appear like
Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
And set it from Standard to "Fast".
After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
You can have the lens adjusted at a repair shop for not too much money, but be aware that if your lens is slipping out of alignment it's only a matter of time before it breaks completely. It may be time to replace your system with a PS3 or a new PS2.
Ok, I was having the same problem. You need to take your playstation apart and clean the laser with some alcohol. Only use alcohol as it dries faster and clear. Might as well clean the rest of the inside as well. you will be surprised at the dust it collects. After I done this my works fine.
try to wipe the rock band cd with a dvd cleaner found at computer stores and attempt at it again, if doesn't work try to find if the problem is within the ps2 not the cd try to indicate the what's wrong with the ps2. Then repost here.
you need to get a laser disk which cleans the inside of the ps2 especially for ps2 games and if that doesnt work then you need to get someone to undo all the case and clean it themselves
hope that helps :)
