Hi STokesG101,

 

I am StokesG too.  Greg Stokes From South Carolina USA.  You Laser has melted.  If you good with Electronics repair like me, you could open the case back up and replace the laser.  The Ribbon cable that connects to the laser is held in place.  You have to carefully unlatch the retainer that holds the Ribbon in.  I think it is read and pulls out on both ends of the ribbon connector.  Its not a flip up type, it is a pull out type connector.  You can get another laser from www.repairmyvideogame.com

I can replace the laser for you for $40 which includes return shipping.  My email is repairtech@playstationclinic.com and I run the website www.playstationclinic.com

On my ps2 after reading its disc, message will appear "disc read error"


Hello, you are most probably using a PS2 Slim, they have a very sensitive Lens Radiance. If the CD is a little scratched, a CD lens cleaner could help. Or if it is not a PS2 Slim, it must just require a CD lens Cleaner :)

PS2 wont read FFXII


Something has to be different between FFXII and another PS2 game. This could be color of the media side, or it could be CD or DVD format. Most likely it is CD format and your CD laser diode is failing. Try a Music CD to see if it will work. If it is a PS2 slim, I suggest a new laser.
