I answer this question at least 10 times a day.

95% of the time the blu-ray laser has gone out.

It's due to a factory defect in the laser.

Sony has corrected the problem (for the most part) with newer models, but it remains for the millions of consoles prior to this.

You have three choices.

1) Call Sony @ 1-800-345-SONY and get it repaired for about $150+ dollars.

2) Find a local repair shop to fix it. $100-$140 on average.

3) Fix it yourself. $70-90.

I'm working on creating a SUPER SIMPLE guide. It will be available on my blog page by this weekend.

Just google: rescuetechla

Hope this info helps.

HI, this is caused by a failed optical lens assembly. this failed component should be replaced asap. this replacement will restore the normal reading capabilities in your unit. I will post a link to a purchase page below. this optical assembly will run about $70.00. try using a lens cleaner before you replace the assembly.

LG GCE 8400B CD-RW will burn cds, but will not read gaming cds meaninh i am unable to install the game, is it supposed to be able to read cds aswell?


Yes it should be able to read any CD including music if you have software to play back music with. There is something wrong with the reading head on your CD player.

I hope this helps you out and if it does please leave me some feedback.

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.

My new ps2 does not read some cds


Hello,

If your new PS2 is NTSC and you are trying to play PAL cds then it would not play and also if you it is a PAL console then it won't play NTSC cds. You can program it also to play both cds, its going to cost you any way.

Best regards

Its exactly like that.


it just means that the disc has no media that it can read, or that the media is in a folder, or it is a blank disc.

Can't read or play any DVDs, CDs or games. Can do


It sounds like the drive is failing. If it will turn on, but can't read any media then I would suggest cleaning it, checking it for warranty replacement, or exchanging it at the place you purchased it, if it is possible.

My playstation 2 plays movies but will not read games why?


The 'Eye' that the PS uses to read DVDs/CDs are different, the one that reads cds has gone bad on yours it seems, so you should still be able to play the games that have the dvd logo, if it is still under warranty I reccommend calling sony.
