Hi Jannette,

 

It sounds like you have a PS2 slim.  Get you  a couple of Q-tips, and bottle of Windex.  You will hear some people tell you to use Rubbbing alcohol, it is not good to do that since the Slim PS2 lens is not glass.  Dampen (not soaked or dripping wet)one tip of the Q-tip and place it on the lens of the laser.  Spin the Q-tip between your fingertips to polish the lens.  Once you swab the entire lens( all crevices and surface), Use the dry tip of the Q-tip to dry the lens. Inspect the lens to see if you left any lint. Try out a disc and see of your No data goes away.

If you do not have any luck, your lens is probably melted from working so hard and long to read a dirty or scratched disc. If your comfortable and electronically talented, you will need to replace the laser.  Yopu can get replacement lasers on Ebay.

If your not Comfortable with replacing your own laser, My service the Playstation Clnic, is one of the most reasonably priced services in the world. I will replace your laser for $39.95 and that includes return shipping and a 90 day warranty.  Check out www.playstationclinic.com.

    Thanks Janette88,



     



    Thank you for your comment.  Look around the Disc drive spindle as well, slight chance you may have somethig obstructing the Spindle from spinning the disc.  Are you willing to open the case?

Are you running the latest firmware 3.21?

If yes, I would try deleting the Game Data for GOW3 then try again. Hopefully it's just corrupt game data.

Let me know.

The cd in my ps2 wont spin


The disc is probably defective, check the backside to see if a Sony PlayStation 2 logo is present. If it is the cd may be a defect try exchanging it for a new one where ever you bought it from. If not the disc you have is a fake.

Rock band wont work keeps saying no data disc can not be read


1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

2. IF THE LASER CLEANING DON'T WORK ON YOUR PS2 SYSTEM PERFORMANCE THEN TRY ADJUSTING THE LASER VOTAGE.

3. IF THE LASER VOTAGE DON'T WORK YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE LASER
