Dampen a q-tip with water and wipe off the laser of the drive gently. This is to make sure that there is no dust or dirt on the laser. Do this with the machine turned off.

Now try different discs and see if it reads any of them, if it doesn't then the laser needs to be replaced.

I have a playstation 2 slim here. It wont spin the


Is that the only disc you seem to be having the problem with?? If so try getting the disc repair kit and using that. I had the same problem with mine but it was only some of the discs. The ps2 slim can be very sensitive and even the slightest defect in a disc will cause it not to recognize there is even a disc there.

Movies


About 99% of the problems where the PS2 stops playing movies, or certain games is a lens problem. The PS2 lenses are extremely sensitive and need to be cleaned regularly. I am betting you also are seeing "Disc Read Error" or "No Disc" on your screen when you enter the browser.

If this is so, you can get a "high quality" disc that cleans lens, or get a can of air that people use to clean keyboards. If you use the canned of air, you want to be sure to blow of the lens itself and not just blow air through the system, which would do no good.

I dont knw whats wrong


i got it. The same thing happens to me. You should put the game in and if the browser and system configuration comes up click on the browser. If the game and the memory card show up click on the game. If just the memory card shows up it will say disc could not be read and i think the game might not work. But if you want to try to make the game work, put a little bit of soap on your fingers and cover the whole entire game with it, the run it under the water and make sure all of the soap is off. Then try the game. But if that does'nt work and you really like the game, clog up your sink with water and put soap on the game and then let it sit in the water for about ten minutes, if this does'nt work i dont think anything could make this game workd.

Ps2 not reading disc.


Hi,

Theres a high chance that your laser simply broke. You should let someone with solder experience let replace the PS2 laser.
You can buy the laser on websites like this one: http://www.consoleparts4u.co.uk

Ps2 not reading disc.


First you need to define what it IS and IS NOT reading. You'll need to run some tests.

Test 1: use a regular music CD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and put that into your ps2 and see if it starts playing it.

Test 2: insert a regular DVD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and try to play that.

If neither will play then it is one of two things. Your laser lens is out of alignment, or your laser lens is damaged.

If one plays but not the other, it is the potentiometer pots on the back of the PS2 lens that need adjusting. You can read more about that on one of my other posts ::.HERE.::
