Ok if you insist to do that here it is;

If DVD rom cleaning kit fails. Take it out, remove screws holding the top cover, take out other obstructions on top of lens. Get isoprophyl alcohol at 70 percent alcohol/ or the dvd cleaning fluid put enough amount to a cotton bud clean the top lens in circular motion, only enough pressure. Let it dry, is the lens clear enough, if ok. Put everything back together. Test it.

My 360 keeps saying that all my games are unreadable, what should i do?


First try to clean the lens, take the 360 and the drive apart and use alcohol (95%) and a cotton tip to gently clean the eye of the lens. If that doesn't help you can pottweak it, meaning you dial down the resistor which regulates power to the lens but this is temporary (the lens is dying..).

Failing that, you can replace the lens.

If that doesn't help or you don't want to do that you'll have to replace the dvddrive. Easiest way (if you don't want to get involved into flashing the thing) is to take the console apart (enough guides on the net, just google for it) and look at the dvdrom type and brand. Buy an exact same dvddrive (ebay ?). When it arrives, open both the broken drive and the new drive and swap the board. It might involve soldering when you have a Benq or Liteon, but this is so easy you could do it with your eyes closed :)

My Playstation 2 Console Keeps 'Freezing'


Well, you have one of two things going on. Either A.) your laser lens is dirty or B.) Your laser lens is out of alignment.

Using lens cleaner kits are useless for any cdrom or dvdrom if you're a smoker and smoke around your PS2. Reason I say this is nicotine and other resin forms cloud your lens over time and create a film on it.

By what it sounds like to me is since it's reading disks part of the time and kinda works, that your laser lens alignment might be ok. However, don't rule this out completely.

First, do a cleaning. Power on your PS2 and open dvdrom tray via the button on your console and power down the PS2 via the switch on the back. The point of this is to keep the dvdrom tray open as you take apart your PS2 so we can get at the lens. Take the PS2 apart (flip it upside down and remove the 8 screws from the bottom, 4 maybe covered up by rubber and plastic square plates so remove those to get at the screws) Next, take the top of the PS2 off and look at the DVD assembly, there should be four screws that keep the lid on the dvdrom. Remove these four screws and take the plastic plate off the top of the dvdrom. Watch this video and clean the following items:



Put your PS2 back together and test. If this doesn't work let me know and i'll go over instructions on how to align your laser lens. But i'm quite sure, by what you have told me, that this is your problem.

Model 50001 fat ps2 cleaned the lens adjusted the arm...


If your lens is not moving up and down the track at all even in bootup then sounds like your motor is fried. What i'm referring to is this:

You can find similar parts like this .::HERE::.

To verify this, open your dvdrom tray. Power off the PS2 via the swtich on the back of the PS2 (thus leaving the dvdrom tray open) Tare down your PS2 and remove the four screws on the top of your DVD-ROM unit (if this is a fat model, if it's a slimline model you'll have to remove that whole platic piece covering the unit itself) You may have to do some research on this next part (via google) but remove your DVD-ROM tray so you can see the guts of the DVD-ROM. Then power on your PS2. And ask yourself the following questions as you observe.

1.) Does the lens move at all even right after bootup?

2.) Is the siver bar part of the motor(pictured above) turning at all to make it move?

If it doesn't turn at all then there is your problem. If it does turn, and the lens doesn't move at all then the ribbon cable that connects the lens to the board maybe damaged or the lens itself is damaged.

Hope that helps

It might be an older CD player that can't read computer-made discs, or it could be a disc incapability... If you sure that the system supports the disc's format.. And it won't play other discs... try to clean the CD lens. CD lens cleaning discs: Every CD, stereo equipment, department, discount, store - and even sidewalk venders - carries CD lens cleaning discs. Are they of any value? Can they cause damage? I generally don't consider CD lens cleaning discs to be of much value for preventive maintenance since they may just move the crud around. However, for pure non-greasy dust (no tobacco smoke and no cooking grease), they may not hurt and could even do a good enough job to put off a proper cleaning for a while longer. However, it's also possible they will ruin the lens. Consider that the worst thing to do to a precision optical surface is to wipe it with a dry cloth as this is likely to scratch the surface as it rubs the dust over it. To the lens, a speck of dust is like a boulder. Once the lens is scratched, replacement of the entire optical pickup is the only remedy. And, since there are absolutely no sorts of standards for these things, it is possible for a really poorly designed cleaning disc to damage the lens even if the dust itself is non-abrasive. In addition, if the cleaning disc doesn't look like a CD to the optical pickup or disc-in sensor, the lens it may not even spin. So, the drawer closes, the drawer opens, and NOTHING has been accomplished! (But at least no damage will be done.) As if this isn't enough, NEVER put one into a high-X CDROM (DVD player or DVDROM drive). The high speed rotation may cause the cleaning disc and/or player/drive to self destruct. And, don't try a cleaning disc on an automotive CD player that sucks in the disk - it will get stuck.
