You did great with the assembly, however, you're off on the alignment. Try to adjust to pull the axle in the opposite direction to clear the cage.

My sony optiarc dvd rw-ad 7190a is not reading any cd/dvd.


Hello there,

The lens must have gone dirty thus is hardly reads the discs. Try to run a disc cleaner and let it spin for like 30 seconds. If that does not work, then you need to clean the lens manually by removing the cdrom from the computer and taking off the casing of the cdrom. Unscrew the plastic plate covering the lens. Then damp a qtip in an alcohol ang gently wipe the lens in a circular manner. Let it dry and put back everything together. Now try playing those discs again.

Please let me know how this goes so I can advice you of other solutions if that does not work. Thank you for using FixYa.

I need some help with my ps 2 it has been giveing me these disc read errors and i toke it apart from the memory card holders to the fan in the back of my system the only problum is i dont know how to open...


Hi there,

You don't want to open the disc drive, you want to clean the laser lens. That's the part that looks like this:
http://www.gamekool.com/ps2-laser-lens-pvr802w-p-307.html

If cleaning the lens doesn't resolve the problem, that same website also has a means of purchasing a replacement. If you just want to clean the inside of the disc drive, put the PS2 back together and open up the tray.

Clean everything with a cotton swab, including the laser lens.

Hope this helps.

Check the power supply.Use a multimeter if you have any voltage coming out from the power supply.
If the power supply is good Check the main fuse on the motherboard.There is a white ceramic fuse on the motherboard and sometimes get Bad.

Won't read disc.


Hi Crashley41 and Von281,

Since you have the bid Phat mode; you will have better luck at fixing your PS2.
This is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the Reset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Remove the CD tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the CD area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. Remove the little white disc from the CD tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and you’re in business.
If you still have trouble reading discs. Click on " Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then on the next page click on "Video Game Consoles". Pick a Repair shop to get your PS2 repaired. Fixya has some good ones dedicated to Playstations.
