Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
My PS2 slim 70012 plays music cds, black and blue games, but doesn't play silver games nor DVDs. When I try to play silver games, it'd say on the screen "Reading Disc", and it'll take forever. I already opened it to take a look at the laser but I don't know how to adjust it or calibrate it. Should I replace the laser with a new one or mess around with it and fix it?. Help me guys, please. I don't wanna spend $130 dlls on a new one.
Is this a new problem or has your PS2 always had this issue? You cannot adjust the laser at all and are likely to damage it if you try, you can however clean the laser lens with a CD/DVD cleaning disk and you'd be surprised how often this resolves disk read issues. Some of these units did have a production fault that prevented them from reading DVD's, if your PS2 has had this fault since new and/or is under 12 months old you could probably have had it repaired/replaced by Sony but by opening it you will have invalidated you're warranty.
