Disc Read error on original early PS2--ticking noise

I have one of first PS2s that came out. After a good many years, it worked fine. But now I have constant disc-read errors. I have used a compressed air spray to get rid of any dust. I have lubricated the pipes that the lens moves across, and I have cleaned the lens with a Q-tip and peroxide(I don't have rubbing Alcohol). I did all of this, and I still get disc-read errors. If this helps, I keep hearing a ticking noise before the disc stops spinning.

    Ive had my playstation for about 7 years now and it was working fine for the first 4,but on the 5th year, the disk tray front broke off. The games still loaded but a lot of weird stuff happened on the 6th year. Now it is March 2009 and every single game wont load right. I can hear it start, then when it comes to loading, the disc stops turning, then it kinda clicks, then runs again, then clicks. When it does load though, the sound echoes and the tv blurrs every time it clicks. What can I do to help my old friend known as sonny.

Hi you will probably get constant disk errors because it is not the best console you can get. The older versions are now stopped being prossesed. My best bet is to get some rubbing alcohol.The spray doesnt really make an effect but will also make an effect.Im not sure what the effect is but your bets bet is to get rubbing alcohol.

If you have any further questions please ask me.
Thank you.

Original playstation 2- 8 years old- wont read discs.


It's a laser issue. 8 years is a long time to get out of your PS2! A lot of people's PS2s start failing within 2 or 3 years. The lasers are pretty unreliable on the PS2, especially if you use it as a DVD player. The following website sells lasers for the older PS2s and also performs repairs. However, it's a bit expensive. More than half of what you can buy a Slim PS2 for new.

I would strongly suggest, however, that you stay away from used or refurbished PS2s for the same reason! You have no idea how much life the laser has left. Either go with a brand new [not refurbished] laser in your PS2 or buy a brand new [not used, not refurbished] Playstation 2.

When the ps2 is on and the disc is in, so this:
1. Turn the ps2 horizontly
2. When you hear the ticks of the laser trying to read, tap it against your knee until you hear it spin

I'm not sure if this will work with the fat ps2s because I have a silver SCPH-79001 model. Hope I helped

Ok, I was having the same problem. You need to take your playstation apart and clean the laser with some alcohol. Only use alcohol as it dries faster and clear. Might as well clean the rest of the inside as well. you will be surprised at the dust it collects. After I done this my works fine.

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.

Ah that happens to me. I threw mine at the wall, and then it worked. (True Story). And I get the awful screetching noise too. I think it has something to do with the "Fatty PS2s" Do you have a fatty PS2?
