The only thing this could be is your PlayStation 2 being burnt discs played on it, or it's just so old you need to get another one. The lasers do get sensitive about things too.

Playstation 2 will not play play playstation 2 disk. Sony

Does this occur with all disc's? Or only one? If it does occur with all disc's try cleaning the laser lens. They sell a special cleaning disc that has microfiber brushes on it to remove any debris, or dust particules that have accumalted on the lens. This can be purchased at any electronic store.

If you clean it and it still dosn't work another possible cause is the motor that spins the dics's is on it way out and not spinning fast enough to read

It's a start,

Hope this helps

Hi ihave aplaystation 2 that want read dics

most likly your lense is dirty. go to a computer store and ask them for a lens cleaner for computer. lens cleaners look like a disk but have little bristles on the bottom of it. this should solve your problem. oh by the way lens cleaners are rather cheap and can be used many times
