The laser lens on the drive is most likely Dirty, if your outside of warranty take the ps2 apart. open the top of the drive, use a q-tip with alcohol 70% or just water, I've personally done this a few times with just water not having the alcohol around.

Use the wet end of the qtip to clean the lens and the dry end to dry the lens.

Here are a few related videos from youtube.

You could try cleaning the laser using meths on a cotton bud - if you take the ps2 apart, this will void the warranty, but most are out of date anyway(you should probably check). Also be careful not to pull out too many wires along the way as it can damage them if you do it too much. in any case if cleaning the lense doesnt work you can either try buying a second hand PS2 or a second hand laser and arm, whichever you deem more suitable

Format disc for playstation 2 I bought some UK playstation disc and I get that message what do I do


It means that the PS2 can't read the disc. Playstation 2s in the US are NTSC, while those in the UK are PAL. PAL discs can not be played on an NTSC PS2, and NTSC discs can not be played on a PAL console. This is because the consoles are region-locked and you can only play games from the region the PS2 itself was sold in.

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc


Hi Elvis,

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
