Re: Disk Read error
Re order the optical carrier ribbon, form the net and also make sure the optical laser is the right class, amp. Volt and resistance as the normal one. If you put in a different 'class' laser the device could be more damaged... hopefully not. Now your warranty is out the window as you have opened the box yourself. Firstly the easier thing is to buy a whole new blue ray device, it should be a Sony, (no surprise) just quote the serial number and device name on the web or on the phone and volla! Install the device and everything should be working. Good luck.

first, make sure the disks themselves are clean and free of scratches. often as not a disk read error on a PS2 is because of dirt. if the disk has a blue back, however, there's a special proceedure to get them to run (the blue ones are still in CD format instead of DVD)
The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.
Here was my situation.
I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.
Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.
This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.
IT IS THE EYE. the eye th the little shiny piece that you can bairly see once the tray comes out.you might have put a disk in at a wrong position and scratched the eye. replacing it might be what to do, but i would check first.
Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.
hello pauldonp...if this is an early version of the slimline they had a problem with over voltage which inturn took out the laser.your only option may be to replace the laser . sony did bring out a mod for this..i preferr the real old version of the ps2 as they had all separate boards and if one went faulty you didnot have to replace the lot ,also the lasers were a lot cheaper than the later models .in the slim lines the lasers are not all that expensive .they do take a bit of setting up as you have to know the ohms setting on the laser for each model..hope this helps
