My friend, i guess theres no other way to help the situation other that wiping the discs with some kliinex, and if its still not working try to get one of those cds that cleans the lens of ur ps2.

Otherwise, just give up those cds, and buy new ones :D
Hope i've been like a help to you :)

Sometimes is can read ps2 cds... sometimetimes it cant and can only read ps1 cds? wat is the problem of my console??? help plssss.....


PS2 CDs are in fact DVDs, whereas PS1 CD are CDs. The DVD reading part of your laser unit is failing. You need to replace the laser unit. This is not necessarily an easy process as you may also need to tweak the positioning of the laser as well.

My PS2 doesnt read orignal CD but works very well with pirated CD


It's quite possible that your PS2's chip is malfunctioning, thus not recognizing original cds. Pirated CDs don't have a protection, thus the chip can't de-protect the original cds, not allowing them to be read.

Another cause would be that the discs are damaged.

Will not rèad any discs


You have either a scratched, dirty, or worn out lens if the disc spins and does not read. If cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disc does not help, I would recommend either buying a new PS2 DVD drive or a new PS2. A new drive will be about 5-25 dollars and you will either have to find somebody to, or you yourself put it in just don't destroy your PS2 in the process. You can find PS2's for about 40-140 depending on fat or slim and new or used.

PS2 wont play DVD movies!


Hi. It seems that you might have an old version of the PS2.

The original PS2's had a problem with the laser that read CDs and DVDs, often failing, creating problems with reading DVDs and in rare cases, CDs.

Unfortunately, the class action lawsuit filed against Sony is too old to get yours fixed for free, but there are ways to attempt to fix the laser yourself, if you would rather not send it in to Sony.

If you have any other questions, respond and I'll help you the best I can.

Good Luck!

I have to unlock my ps2 so that i dont have to use original cds.]


Modding your PS2 is illegal. Also, the only reason you would need to mod it is to play bootleg games. That is illegal.
