Same thing happened to mine, is it the older fatter ps2? because the one i had just kinda crapped out on me. your best bet is to buy a slim one or send it in to get fixed.

Better ask a repairman maybe it is time for you to replace the lens itself

Why my ps2 not play games only play video,But Before My Ps2 Play Video And games too, what is my ps2 problum plz help, my emai: bowram_brt@yahoo.com thanks


When your console does not read any disk, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only few CD, DVD. After more prolonged usage , often the PS start losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the PS, and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

before doing tis, contact Sony to check if the unit can be replaced or repaired by Sony, you find the number on the Console documentation.

My PS2 wont read any disk.


HI, the optics assembly has failed. the actual optical lens assembly will need to be replace in this case. you can try to clean the lens with a cleaning disk.. this may wake the laser. if the cleaning doesn't produce results, replacing the optical lens assembly will be the next move.

Playstation 2 slim


you might want to get a long q-tip and gently put alcohol on it and swap the lens.then have another tip ready to dry off. ps2 games are basiclly a dvd . and you can find info about a lawsuit that sony has against them for not being able to read dvd's.

Playstation 2 problem


I would try cleaning your Playstation games, Check and make sure that the games your trying to play are not cracked in anyway. Also, if you have your system standing vertically lay it down horizontally. Many times after you've closed the disk in it lens to far away from the lens.

PS 2 says no disk tried to put alternate disks but problem still persist


Your Laser is not seeing the Disc. Several reasons could be as follows:
  • Dirty lens on the laser
  • Bad ribbon cable not supplying power or reading the Laser.
  • Major misalignment of the laser
  • Motherboard Laser Driver IC burned up.
Alrighty then, you probably see now that when you get a no disc error, the fault is 99% related to the laser.

You have to clean it up and get all the dust out. Do not use alcohol on the Slim PS2 Laser. Use a q-tip dampened with rubbing alcohol to clean the lens. Dry the lens before you try it..
