Are you receiving a disc read error? Or do they simply not load?
In either case, you will want to make sure that your laser is clean. This will require opening the console.
Just google playstation 2 repair and look for free walkthroughs...they are everywhere.
I would boil the problem down to 3 possibilites....
2. Adjustment of the cd side of your laser potentiometer
3. A simple cleaning of your laser

I have trash picked 2 of them and fixed this same problem. Just be prepared to spend some time and be patient. Clean the lens with glass cleaner. Under the lazer is a white gear it turn it two clicks clockwise and try a ps2 game. If it does not work turn it another 2 clicks. 4 clicks seems to be the magic number, after 4 clicks go only one click at a time until the game loads.This has worked numerous time for me. just keep track of how many clicks you do in case you want to bring it back to the original setting for some pointless reason. Good luck.
