Re: playstation 2, keep getting disc read errors
Try using a CD lens cleaner it could be that the laser is a but dirty.
Sometimes it could be that the games have fingerprints on etc.. I normally correct this problem by giving the games a wipe over with a cotton cloth with a a little white spirit then drying it gently with another soft cotton cloth.

do you mean you got a new game or console? If you got a new game it sounds like your laser is failing. You can google on how to adjust, clean or replace your laser. Some people have success with weighting the discs down with tape on top in an even pattern so balance is not thrown off. do a google search for " ps2 disc read error " it will give you a choice of plenty of tutorials to follow. Good luck =)
You said the model is 77001?? is that the slim type ps2?? if it is try this troubleshooting step
if the console is lying down flat where the disc lid is at the right side, try applying pressure on the lower right corner of the lid, sometimes the lid's safety button gets worn out and it will give you disc read error if this solves the problem then the button really is busted, if you have technical background you try and change the button
You will ne4ed to clean up the PS2. open it up and clean the laser lens with alcohol on a cotton swab. If it is the Slim Ps2 model you should not use Alcohol. Use A glass Cleaner like windex on the slim. Sometimes the magnet gets week and you need to add some magnetism to help improve the spindle grip on the Game disc. Cut up a refridgerator magnet and place it in the white cap thatt clamps the Game disc in the cd player.
You Laser must be burned out. Since it doesn't play any discs, I believe you have a melted laser. In this case, your disc should not spin either. You need a new laser. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" in the next Screen. Pick a good Repair shop dedicated to Playstations. You can probably get a good deal on getting your Playstation working top notch again. Good Luck
