Re: ps2

Hello, possibble solution is to replace the optical pickup block. There are two types mitsumi pvr802, and the one from sankyo. If you need more info, please advice. PS: cleaning the pickup unit with alcohol is not a good idea. There is a special cleaning liquid for this purpose.

Disc cannot be read

since by now the warranty is long gone try opening the console up by removing the rubber feet and screws underneath them. be careful not to damage the power buttons as they are on a flat cable attached to the shell. clean the inside of the console with qtips or a can of air DO NOT USE ANYTING moist or damp no solvents. clean the disk "eye" (small round glass eye) very carefully with a qtip ( you can use rubbing alcohol on this but verry little in a qtip only. if you do use a second dry qtip imideately after). reassemble and this should hopefully fix your problem.

PS2 won't read disk sometimes

I've helped someone else with a similar problem here:

It's not enough to use a disk to clean the laser lens. You have to take the PS2 apart and clean the lens manually. Nicotine, Incense, diffusers, and other smokes and just time itself clouds the lens. Not only that but the part that the disk sits and spins on needs to be cleaned over time as well to assure the disk is in proper alignment and Is not just kinda spinning on the spindle.

In that link i posted above you be led to directions on how to take apart your PS2 and what parts to clean. The instructions I have posted in that tutorial is for the (FAT) PS2 model not SLIMLINE. If you have a slimline model you don't have to take apart anything just open your cover and clean the parts in the video.

Hope that helps,

My PS2 will not play my games

Hi Willhayes79, Test to see if the PS2 will read any Discs it is supposed to read. Try CD, CDR, PS1, PS2 Blue, PS2 silver, DVD. It might read something. To repair open the case, and clean everything in sight. Dust is your enemy. ?When you get to the lens, Use a Q-tip lightly damped with Rubbing Alcohol to swab the lens clean. Then dry it. You may have to completely disassemble the PS2 all the way to get all the dust. I believe Dust is shorting out your disc drive spindle. If your not comfortable with fully disassembling you playstation, Then go to and they may do a Cleaning and Tuning for $20 plus shipping.
