Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I sprayed Windex on my ps2 slim lens and now it red any thing at all even CD
Try carefully cleaning the lens with Isopropyl alcohol on a Q-tip. Any film left behind from the "Windex" may have caused distortion, or refraction of the lazer. Worst case scenario is that you may have been too vigorous cleaning the lens, and it may be out of alignment now.

It sounds like you have a PS2 slim. Get you a couple of Q-tips, and bottle of Windex. You will hear some people tell you to use Rubbbing alcohol, it is not good to do that since the Slim PS2 lens is not glass. Dampen (not soaked or dripping wet)one tip of the Q-tip and place it on the lens of the laser. Spin the Q-tip between your fingertips to polish the lens. Once you swab the entire lens( all crevices and surface), Use the dry tip of the Q-tip to dry the lens. Inspect the lens to see if you left any lint. Try out a disc and see of your No data goes away.
If you do not have any luck, your lens is probably melted from working so hard and long to read a dirty or scratched disc. If your comfortable and electronically talented, you will need to replace the laser. Yopu can get replacement lasers on Ebay.
