I think I know. You need to wipe off the disk. If it doesn't work your disks might be broken or might be the laser. If you have a warranty you can get a new one for half price or free. Depends on your warranty.

My ps2 wont play games


If it plays audio CDs but no DVD videos or DVD games then you must replace the laser unit cause the part of your laser that read DVDs must be fried.

PS2 wont play DVD movies!


Hi. It seems that you might have an old version of the PS2.

The original PS2's had a problem with the laser that read CDs and DVDs, often failing, creating problems with reading DVDs and in rare cases, CDs.

Unfortunately, the class action lawsuit filed against Sony is too old to get yours fixed for free, but there are ways to attempt to fix the laser yourself, if you would rather not send it in to Sony.

Good Luck!

Ps2 wont play DVDs


Your PS2 laser is wearing out. When the laser starts to go, first games will skip... then eventually the PS2 will stop reading DVDs altogether. If you keep using it to read CDs, it will eventually stop reading those too and the laser will die altogether. Here's a website that will help you identify your PS2 model, show you how to replace the laser, and they sell parts and do repairs too

My ps2 wont read any discs but it plays music discs and cd's


Hi Cozza,

Open the console up, and remove the cover over the Cd drive. Clean the lens of the Laser with a Q-tip lightly dampened with Rubbing alcohol. Use the dry tip of the Q-tip to dry the lens, look to see if you left any lint, and make sure the lens of clean.

New game won't play.


the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
