My PS2 wont read any disk.

HI, the optics assembly has failed. the actual optical lens assembly will need to be replace in this case. you can try to clean the lens with a cleaning disk.. this may wake the laser. if the cleaning doesn't produce results, replacing the optical lens assembly will be the next move.

Disc read error

Hmmmm, Then poissibly the motor might have a need for servicing. Because by the sounds of it, the motor isnt moving quite right inside the system. I ran into this problem with my PS1 and PS2's that i have had over the years. Motors can wear out over time and use. If your like my friends, they go through a new PS2 in a year flat, because it is used 20 to 22 horus a day by 3 different people. So yeah, they use theirs very well.

Back to subject. Anyways, if the motor is not actually doing much but clicking, it sounds like there is an Obstruction in the way of the spin. Meaning, its not getting its complete rotation every whatever amount, so it will not read the disc. The motor also has to be able to move back and forth to read the disc as you play it and if that motor goes, than you rarely can play a game all the way through.

There are usually a number of computer stores (small time) that offer repair services for a price. They can usually order the small parts and Sony lets them install those replacement parts, because like all big companies, it takes a lot longer to get things done because everyone goes there first.

When searching for a store that can help, be specific in questioning. You need to ask directly if they have any employee's who know how to service PS2's

Will play CD's but not DVD's or Games

You have to take the box apart and clean the lens.Ok !
  1. The white plastic gear that moves the laser must make contact with the "motor". A bad contact here can cause disk read errors. Sometimes it looks Ok, but you may need to remove the lens and bend the white gear for good contact.
  2. The two rails on which the lens move must be very slippery - which can be lubricated with cooking or motor oil. Usually the holes where the rail is (on the right side of the lens) are dirty or you have to bore then out slightly, making the holes bigger.
  3. The lens uses little torx screw (black) that move the lens up and down on the rail. Usually the lens is too high and requires adjustment.
  4. Take the lens off these 2 rails and take the black plastic cover off. Turn the lense upside-down and you'll find there are 2 screws (silver, phillips or torx) that you have to remove to take the upper little lens off.
  5. Then you'll see a larger lens that is usually very dirty (this lens is a mirror to light). If that's dirty, it will give a disk read error. You'll have to take the little electric board off that you see on the other side of the big lens-mirror. It's probably dirty too, so clean it. Alcohol should work OK for this task.
  6. The lens bottom has 2 + 2 screws. You move the upper "little" lens up-down-left-right (this may require a special screwdriver)
  7. The motor "rail" that moves the lens must be very clean and oiled and the 2 rails too.

PS2 not reading disks

Your lazer lense has bit the dust. Depending on your model type the first gen systems lazers are very easy to replace. The later versions sony made it harder to replace. You can find out what model you have by looking at the back of your PS2 then you can either call sony or go to there website and find out what generation PS2 you have. Then go from there. Hope this helps

Disc read error

Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.
