Disc Reading Problem

I have a problem with my slimline PS2. It was my birthday and my mum got me a rare disk from italy called We Love Katamari, It didnt work, then she wiped a smudge of it and it worked. But, the only problem is that it jumps on cut scenes, my brother decided skipping them would work. So, we skipped the intro and now we can play it. We also got the new Guitar Hero game!! we put it in and it didn't scan it atall. We kept trying but no luck, so today we went to ASDA got a new one and the same happened to that, also since trying to work Guitar Hero, We Love Katamari hasn't been scanning straight away and when we play it the BGM tracks keep stopping and jumping!

What do i do to get Guitar Hero working??

And whats the deal with Katamari???

If the problem happens with more than one disk , then it is probably the PS2 lens , that is dirty or is starting to be opaque because of use and age.

Try Katamari on a cd reader, and guitar hereo on some friend's PS, if they work, then the PS is starting to get old and having lens problem.

All you can do is blowing asome canned air on PS lens and trying to use a cleaning DVD inside PS. Often this does not work.

My ps2 wont read silver back disks. how do you fix it


Hi there!
When your PS2 starts to have problems reading silver backed discs you could be experiencing one of 2 different problems:
  1. Your laser or disc is dirty (clean off your disc with a soft cotton cloth, and clean the laser in your PS2 with a cd drive cleaning cd)
  2. The laser in your PS2 is going, you will need to take it into a shop to have it repaired, replace the laser or disc drive yourself (this will void the warranty if you have one) or get a new or different PS2.
Hope this helps!

I put a scratched video game into my ps2 slim and it kept on reading the disc but the game never started it just kept on reading the disk.at the same time my ps2 is making a clicking sound.how can i fix...


Undortunately, if the disk is scratched, there is not much you can do, other than buy a new disk. Lots of video game/DVD rental stores have disk repair machines, so you could try and take your disk there to see if that helps.

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.

Ps2 slimline disc reading error


HI Heytev,

 

Three things. 

  1. The laser could be melted from extended attempts at reading an unreadable disc. If so, You need a new laser.
  2. The Disc is not spinning which could be a motherboard failure. If so, you need a new motherboard
  3. Dust has infiltrated the laser and contaminated the Mirrors or Pickup. If so, you need a new laser.

Ok now that you see the reasons, it is more likely you need a new laser. go to Ebay and buy you one. They are fairly simple to change. Call or email me when you get a New laser.  My information is at www.playstationclinic.com  Hope this helps you.
