Place a piece of tape on the topside of the disc to help it balance.

When i put cd games in slim ps2 (90004 cb) it makes a very loud noise (like hiting a door with a coin) and the game won't load. This happens with a few blue games (not all of them) it scares the hell...

Try laying the console flat and upside sounds like the '2-cent' clip on the laser eye is broken, which is allowing the eye to jam...repositioning as stated gives it more clearance to move by taking the tension off. Hope this helps!

Ps2 (slim)

Well first off, make sure the disk if in PS1 OR PS2 format. That is what the PS2 Is requesting when it says "Please insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk. The Slim PS2 has various problems reading disk.(Don't Know why? I own it and Know it does). The Fat version(1st version) is a much better system, in my opionion. Try blowing air to clean the disk reader. Or changing the disk reader portion out, At a small price.

Ps2 slim doesn't play color. i beg you.

I have only seen this when the PS2 slim has been modded. What I do when this happens is hook the PS2 slim to a HD TV. This clears up the color. The modchip seems to drain the video power low enough that the normal TV with composite connection cannot resolve the signal. The only way to repair this is to get a new motherboard that is not modchipped. IF it is not modded, you still need a new motherbaord. Buy a broken will not read discs PS2 slim with that is NTSC or PAL whichever you use. Exchange the motherboards. You also need to be sure the Broken PS2 slim will boot up, and possibly read CD's but not Games.

sounds like the laser is out of alignment, you can either try to adjust the laser or you can search ebay or other places for a replacement laser assembly for your model.

if you want to tackle the adjustment of the laser assembly then.

but first try this.

Disc reading sound ps2 slim

Check around where the laser connects to the worm gear that moves it up and down. You may have some lint wrapped around the worm gear. Also check the disc spindle motor for Lint trapped under it. It could be your laser lens getting dirty.
Clean the Slims lens with a Q-tip and Window Glass Cleaner.
  1. Lightly Dampen one of the tips of the Q-tip with Glass Cleaner
  2. Swab the laser lens with the dampened Q-tip.
  3. Clean and dry of the laser lens with the dry tip of the Q-tip
Good luck

PS2 slim

the laser is dirty or damaged. Try swabbing the lens with rubbing alcohol and immediately drying with canned air. if that doesn't work, a repair shop can do a more in depth cleaning, but there is the chance that the DVD portion may never work again. I do this repair about 5 times a day...
