This is a known problem by sony.  There are a couple of things that you can try. The main issue is there is a problem with the laser.  You may be able to run Sony PS1 discs or Music CD's but DVD's are normally what quit working first.  If you are inclined to open the system and it is out of warrenty you can do so.  BE VERY CAREFUL  There is a ribon cable that goes to the power button. Also there is most likely a LOT of dust in the system.  You need to go to your local Drug Store and get some 99% rubbing Alcohal and Q-Tips.  There are then 4 screws on the top of the DVD rom drive  You take these off and clean the lens of the drive.  If this does not work, then you laser is bad.  You can attempt to adjust it with the little white wheel, but this is not always successful. 

Hope this helps
  If you would like me to attempt to repair it, let me know.  I charge low rates and if I can not I will send it back to you at my cost.

well first you need to determine which ps2 system you have and which game it is that will not load... if the game you are currently trying to load is a DVD-9 game then the only way to play it is on the Ps2 slimline....

Hi Revarner,

When I get one like this, I replace the motherboard.

If you are not able to do this yourself. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. The click on "Video Game Consoles" Pick a good Repair shop dedicated to repairing Playstations.

Playstation2 not working properly


Hi there. Are the older games you're trying to play CD games ? They might be :) The laser lens in such consoles can be fried on the dvd part, but still read CD's. Have you tried, to read a DVD Movie in it ? I bet it doesn't work either. The slimlines are infamous for laser burnout, and god they're quick to burn. You can try to clean your laser lens with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol, but i'd say you're already out of luck. The optical lens is quite easy to replace in those units. They can be found on ebay and on various websites for 20$, and if you can play a bit with a phillips screwdriver, chances you'll be able to replace it yourself with a bit of patience are good enough. If you need additional help just ask, hope that helps ! cheebster.
