My ps2 is makeing a werd sound when reading dice


It's not able read the disc - try cleaning the disc, try another disc, etc to narrow down the problem. If it won't play any discs either the lens is dirty or an actual hardware failure in the unit.

When I start loading a game or video the playstation sayds video or game can not be played (error 8002997F)


Hi,

This error is related to an issue reading the BluRay Disc, you might try the following:

  1. Ensure that the latest system software update is installed on your PlayStation 3 system.
  2. Check the disc for scratches and dirt.
  3. Check that the disc is compatible with your PlayStation 3 system.
  4. Make sure that this is not only happening with one specific game, if so, the disc might be the issue.
  5. Try the disc in another PS3 system if you have one available to discard the possibility of a faulty disc.
Hope this helps.

PlayStation 3 system cannot read the disc

My playstation will not play any games, nor movies. system # 98006


hello,

The most common reason for the Playstation not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Playstation including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Playstation going again!

Disk read error


The 'Disc Read Error' error message, 'Please Insert a Playstation 2 Formatted Disc' error message, or the 'No Data' error message is an indicator by your system that the console is having difficulty reading the game disc. This could be for many reasons; usually this is because the game disc is damaged or unreadable. However, in some situations, this can be a sign of a more serious issue with your Sony PlayStation 2. Try all of the steps listed below to troubleshoot the error:

Check the game disc.

1. If there are any noticeable scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.
Note: Do not rub hard and do not rub in a circular motion as this could further damage the game disc.
2. If there aren’t any noticeable scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try using that game disc in another PlayStation 2.

* If the game disc works in another system, this is an indicator that your PlayStation 2 may be damaged. For information on getting your system repaired or replaced, you will want to contact Sony directly for assistance at 1-800-345-SONY.
* If the game disc does not work in another system, this is a good indicator that the disc is damaged or defective. To acquire a replacement game disc, you will want to refer to your manual for warranty information specific to your product.

Some Playstation systems, especially the older models, have trouble reading some newly manufactured Playstation 2 game disks. Sony recommends using their Auto Diagnosis tool (http://www.us.playstation.com/support/ps2/hardwaresystem/default.html) to resolve this issue.

My 80g playstation 3 is not reading games nor movie disc


i had exactly the same problem with my PS3 i phoned up sony and they told me to do a full format which can be found on the home menu under settings and format. MAKE SURE BEFORE YOU DO THE FULL FORMAT BACKUP ANYTHING YOU HAVE SAVED TO THE PS3 INCLUDING GAME SAVES AS THIS WILL ALL BE WIPED FROM THE PS3'S HARDDRIVE.

the full format takes a couple of hours and once this is done you can try a disc (game or movie). this may make it work although with mine it didn't. i phoned up again and they said they would replace the PS3 as it was still under warranty.

i was told that the full format is the last option before replacing the console, so if your out of warranty period you''ll have to hope it works.

When I insert a game into my Playstation 2, sometime it will say that it is reading the disc, but then after a few seconds, it says that the disc cannot be read. And other times when I insert a game, it...


After awhile some games with the purple, black, or blue reading sides and DVDs won't load. The laser in the Playstation 2 either goes bad, or gets shifted out of place. On my Playstation, the laser shifted lower than usual due to moving it. Some people prefer to fix this on their own, while some people pay a professional.

Reading disc


Hi DOMexcla,
this is a pretty easy fix.
You probally have the PS2 in a dusty area.
This will cause the dust to fall on the lens, thus, not being able to read it.
Try cleaning the lens, or buying a cleaning disk.
