Hi Crashley41,

You Laser must be burned out. Since it doesn't play any discs, I believe you have a melted laser. In this case, your disc should not spin either. You need a new laser. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" in the next Screen. Pick a good Repair shop dedicated to Playstations. You can probably get a good deal on getting your Playstation working top notch again. Good Luck

Disk read error


The reason your play station 2 keeps reading disc error is either because the lens is weak, dirty, or the disk is not compatible with the console.

You can try to use a lens cleaner to clean the lens or totally replace the lens with a new one.

You can also try other disc to see if its the same thing it will show.

Take care

My playstaion 2 wont play any discs

The eye in the tray might be scratched or damaged. This happens with age and the way the Playstation has been setting as well. It is more likely to wear out faster when it is standing upright. Try to play a movie or a game with the playstation in the horizontal way. If not the eye could possibly be damaged beyond repair.

Rockband PS2 brand new disc will not read

I had a similar problem with a "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty disc".

Disc would not play, but it was in mint condition. I had no choice but to return it to the store and get a new copy, which worked.

There must have been an error when the company burned the disc.

your laser is weak or faulty.
Try using a laser head cleaning disk, or have a replacement laser fitted.
