Re: ps2

Hi Pookie,

You got some pookie on the lens of your PS2 Laser. Clean the lens of the big original PS2 with Alcohol. If you have the SLim PS2 console, use Glass cleaner on the lens.

The disc wont spin and its not reading it

PS2's have never given me laser problems,so I would clean the laser lens with a Q tip and alcohol. If that doesn't solve the problem then replace the laser lens.

My ps2 wont read discs

i can only think of two things with that problem. one your lens might be scratched or the laser unit is no good. you can replace that part by removing it from an older unit or going on ebay buy it from them unit model SONY PS2 SPU3170 Laser 3170 Lens. this will solve your problem fast.

Not loading game

the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
