My PS2 won't run my games.

HI, you will need to preform a lens cleansing by using a cleaning disc. try to recover lens function be cleaning the lens with a good len cleaning disc. if the lens cleaner dose not fix this issue, this will confirm optical lens assembly failure and, you will need to replace the lens assembly in this case.

Just to make sure that this isn't a control fault, unplug the PS2 for 5 minutes. if the unit still freezes up or , the unit will not play the disc, replace the optical lens assembly.

Playstation 2 Disc Read Error

After extensive research on this subject and working on several Playstation II systems. I found out the reason your system will play only blue disks and not silver is a alignment problem with the laser. It could be tilted or set to high or low. The quickest solution is to call Sony and get a new laser with the shuttle. If i am not mistaken it cost 50.00 and just go to the playstation site select support and it will explain in full detail how to take your system apart and replace the laser and shuttle.
