To fix this, open the case.Then look at the mechanical unit, the you must see a little white gear behind the unit, this gear is used to control the height of the lens.
Use a hex key, then turn it to clock wise slowly until the lens didn't touch the discs.
And don't forget to use a damaged disc just for your experiment, when it didn't touching again, you can use the good ones.

How to repair scratched PS2 Games?


Although the<span style="font-weight: bold;"> PS3 </span>is becoming popular, many of us decided to stay with the <span style="font-weight: bold;">PS2</span>. There are more games, cheaper products, and more buying opportunities. Hey, you can even download<span style="font-weight: bold;"> PS2 games</span> on the Internet. Of course, these games will get a lot of use (because they are awesome!) And finally, you want to know how to fix scratched PS2 games. This article will help you.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Is it merely scratched or dirty?</span><br /><br />Sometimes the problem is not our game from scratch. Seriously, read a lot of PS2 games down scratches, but it is really a problem, is covered with gook. Try cleaning the disc before trying to set up out of nowhere (or maybe to work evil that is needed).<br /><br />It is scratched! How can you solve this problem?<br /><br />It's actually really easy to fix scratched PS2 games. This is what you need.<br /><br />Baking Soda Toothpaste<br /><br />lint-free cloth (eyeglasses cloth is perfect)<br /><br />Before you begin, you should know that this is not a good idea to erase your hard disk in circles. Unlike the old records (which had to follow the path), PS2 should rub right center to outer edge. Cleaning does more harm circles and want to avoid that.<br /><br />5 easy steps to fix scratched PS2 games<br /><br />Put a little 'slide of warm water.<br /><br />apply a little toothpaste on your rag<br /><br />RUB (as shown) at the height of the area and around it. If you have lots of scratches, so do the whole disk. 10-15 slides from the inside to the outside should do the trick.<br /><br />rinse the toothpaste<br /><br />let the disc dry air<br /><br />See? It is not difficult to fix scratches on ps2 at all. There is a problem with this method, however, you can do it too often. Know that you are cutting down on the plastic surface to crack some PS2 feel low. If you do it too often, so you do not have a plastic bumper on the left and the data layer of aluminum foil to be destroyed. Serious problems (or repeated injury), the best thing is to go back to the plate.<br /><br />

It says..please insert a playstaion or playstation 2 disc format.


It's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken

PS2 Slim Line Problem


The problem is with the disc drive itself. Most common problem is the give in the spindle starts to go and gets to be to much and you get floating of the disc while in play. If the system is still in waranty I would sudgest contacting the MFG and getting it fixed or replaced. If not in waranty then your only other choice is to find another system for cheap and rape it for parts and replace the drive.
