Hold the disk by the outer edge (side with writing on it should face towards the floor) and make sure your fingers don't touch the clear part of the disk.
Dampen a soft cloth that will not scratch the surface (microfiber cleaning cloths work best). Starting from the center of the disk, wipe in a straight line to the outer edge. Do not rub in circular motions. Repeat until entire surface has been cleaned.
Insert the disk into the console. If it still doesn't work, your lens may need to be cleaned. I'd recommend taking your console to a local gaming or tech store. A qualified technician will be able to clean the console without causing damage.
There is a good chance that your game is scratched. Try cleaning it using the steps below:
Hold the disk by the outer edge (side with writing on it should face
towards the floor) and make sure your fingers don't touch the clear part
of the disk.
Dampen a soft cloth that will not scratch the
surface (microfiber cleaning cloths work best). Starting from the center
of the disk, wipe in a straight line to the outer edge. Do not rub in
circular motions. Repeat until entire surface has been cleaned.
If this doesn't work, try restarting the Xbox and opening and closing the disk tray a few times.
If it is still unreadable, I'd recommend taking the disk to a local game store. Many places will offer a "buffing" service to clean the disk that can cost approximately $5-$10. There is chance that this will render the game unusable, so only do this as a last resort.
The way to fix this is to open the disk tray and blow inside for about thirty seconds getting the dust out of the way of the laser also blow across the disc tray and the surface of the disk. Then keep closing and opening the tray and it will start to read hopefully. if this does not work go out and buy a disc cleaner. it looks like a disc with sponges on it and when you insert it into the console it cleans the inside for you.
i am going through it right now
my personal experience
I've had this problem quite a few times; here are some potential issues:
(1) If it is any color disk but the standard shiny silver (i.e. purple, blue) it will not play. it will do about one or two spins and be done.
(2) When was the last time you cleaned it? Take out the screws. It's been a while for me but I believe they are under the pads for laying them down. Get some canned air (1 = $4 or $5 for a good one), hold it straight up and clean it. PLEASE MAKE SURE IT'S UNPLUGGED BEFORE DOING THIS.
(3) 75% of my problem was that I had the PS2 laying down so the disk goes in horizontally. Set it up and try that way if it's not already.
(4) Check your disk and if it's really scratched then that could be another problem.
*(5) Wall Plug. If you have more than 2 appliances plugged into the wall outlet then you could be depriving the unit the power it needs to operate properly. Consider an extension cord or moving it to another outlet.
The Blu-Ray diode is blown. With a healthy laser when the disk is seated by the load mechinism the laser will power on a bright purple beam at first and start spinning the disk if one is detected. If it doesn't detect Blu-Ray media then it turns to the standard laser (red) and it will bounce up and down a few times trying to focus. You need good ol part number KES-400A which is a new laser.
Originally I drew the same conclusion you did and wasted a bunch of money on the part KEM-400AAA which is the whole laser and spin assembly. You don't need all that. Just get a good laser and carefully install it and you should be good to go. Be very careful installing it though as it is VERY susceptible to Electrostatic Discharge. There are only a few sellers that have this part. the best thing to do is go to ebay and type in the part number. But beware, make sure they have a guarantee on them. I just bought 5 of them and not one works properly. There is one seller http://myworld.ebay.com/jimmyestore he is a little more expensive, but at least the lasers work!! Good luck!!
JoTex.. The PS2 wont play blueray disks ..most of the older ps2 games have a purple or almost black color..Try checking the games to see if they are damaged,such as finger prints large scratches ect, try a dvd lens cleaner they are pretty cheep.(the disc type). the lens my be dirty,, or you can use a can of compressed air like the type for your keyboard. just spray inside with the disk tray open..hope this helps
My sons playstation 2 went to browser and after reading the only one solution of putting a cup on top of it, we did try that but we found that the problem was the silver piece had moved, so after we moved the silver piece toward the middle toward where the disk goes, then closed it, and put a little pressure on top and you could feel it turning , then we opened it back up, the silver part had moved back again, but the playstation started back working then without any pressure.. so my suggestion is move the silver part close to where the disk goes.and it will move itself back....It sure worked for us..I was beginning to think money down the drain for this playstation 2....thank God it worked so maybe it will work for you...
