We bought my son Rock Band for PS2 for Christmas. The disc didn't seem to work so we exchanged it. The new one also did not work. He was just playing Guitar Hero about an hour ago and the console seemed to be working just fine. He took out the disc to try the Rock Band disc again and now the disc tray won't stay closed.
Two issues - one, how do we fix the disc tray, two, why won't Rock Bank work in his PS2?

make shaw its not a ps3 game, not trying to be patronizing but ive had 3 people do that brought ps3 games and try to put them in ps2, its true sony are rip off merchants, my advise is not to get a wii ether go for a xbox 360, he will love you for ever. the download content alone you can get for rock band1/2 and guitar hero world tour is worth it
Here are the tips to get Rock Band work on the ps2:
Clean the disc well.
Run another disc in the PS2 for about 5 minutes, then try the Rock Band disc.
Plug in a standard controller, navigate to the browser screen, and if the PS2 reads the disc, simply select it with the controller.
Insert a copy of Rock Band Track Pack (PS2) and let it run until it gets to the Harmonix screen. Quickly switch this disc for the Rock Band disc, and reset the console.
Insert the disc so that the "K" in Rock Band on is pointed at roughly 6 O'clock. If the disc isn't read, then open your PS2 and rotate the disc one hour to the right. Repeat this until it is working or until it is back at 6 O'clock.
Be careful with your Rock Band disc as some of them barely work to start with, and you don't want to damage it more.
Save your receipt because if it doesn't work at all you will want to return it.

have you tried taking the ps2 apart and fixing the disc read error? its common in the ps2 its simple. buy a can of air and take the ps2 apart and spray around lens not directly on it...i can send a link if you wish.
We had the same problem on a PS2 (thin) that is several years old. We tried exchanging the disk - same problem. We have a lot invested in the PS2 system and just bought several new games for it for Xmas so we decided to buy a new PS2 and see what happened. The Rock Band game works perfectly in the new PS2 with no issues.
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.
