Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I have an old ps2, and it has a disc read error. I tried to clean the laser, and nothing. The problem is that the disc is grinding on something. The disc tray has been taken out several times, so it might have gotten a wrong footing. Anyway, when the motor reaches full speed, the disc will jump off the motor. Currently, the PS2 is taken apart with only the case and the disc cover taken off, not the heat sink or anything else.
Disassemble the whole thing, and clean Clean Clean. Be careful with the fan connector,it is very delicate. Clean the lens using a magnifying glass to see if you got it real clear. The lens sometimes touches the disc media surface and can collect some bad stuff that normal cleaning will not get off. Check me out at www.playstationclinic.com is you need more assistance. Adding a magnet to the puck may not always work. Let me know how your doing on the repair.

Try replacing the magnets on the plastic for one, as they may be week by now... That is all I can say, sorry man. Tom Smith's idea sounds good to me...

You should buy a replacement dvd drive for the ps2 , for about 25.00 USD on ebay, it is easy to install considering you already have taken apart the ps2
