Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

PS2 cannot read

I have a different problem with my PS2. My PS2 tries to read discs for about 3 seconds and then stops, I'v tried other discs and the result is the same. I also opened and closed the disc tray when no disc was in and it still did the same thing. It was acting like it was reading something for a few seconds and then stopped. What's up and how can this be fixed?

When i put in a game in my ps2 it says reading for a few seconds and then the reading disc sign disappears and the game doesn't turn on. What should i do?


Try playing a movie and make sure the disc is clean, if the PS2 can not read any disc, is because the ps2 need to be serviced, but it might not be worth it.

Playstation 2 won't play DVDs


if it's a fat PS2 and
model SCPH 30001, SCPH 35001
(not including the models with an 'R' after the model #.

these models need the following to play DVDs:
- PS2 DVD remote with IR unit
- PS2 DVD disc player (sold with DVD remote w/ IR unit)
- PS2 memory card

you copied the DVD disc to the memory card. you used the memory card to play DVDs.

later models didn't need the memory card to play DVDs.

Gta san andreas loads but then says error reading disc


if you are using the older style ps2 fat one then its probly that the disc might either be scratched a bit and almost outta date as a older ps2 gets used it will begin to have disc reading errors what i did was upgrade to the slim they have less problems with disck reading erros over time id do one of two things or both take the disc to someone or a place to have it professionly cleaned for at most 3 bucks then try it then if not try leaning your ps2 upright and incert the disc some times doing that will make the laser not hickup and read it better with the motor running sideways keepng it from skipping . if it dosnt help much im sorry but its always a good try ;)

Disc Read Error


There is not a way to keep it from resetting, however it does sound like the lens is bad. Since it sounds like you have no problem working with them you can get a new lens cheaper than buying a new machine. The 30001's had 2 or 3 different type lens in them. You can seach ebay for them, they are normally for sale there around $40-50 last time I checked. Since cleaning and adjusting does not fix it, I think this is the last resort, other than full replacement of the system :-) Sorry....
