Re: Disc No Read

Ok this is a common problem with the PS 2 and even when you use a wet or dry system it does not work. You will have to open that baby up! Here is a link that spells out exactly what to do! I recommend you are confident before trying. I did it to my PS2, have not had a problem since!
Good luck, it worked for me!

Wii wont read disc's. It says,"An error has occurred. Press the eject button and remove disc, then turn off Wii and refer to operation mannual for help trouble shooting. Thanks for your help. ...

I'm with you Jordan. Mine just gave me this message for the first time last night. I'm desperate for a solution. I may try replacing the laser...less than $20 to do.

Just out of curiosity, what were you playing when you got the error? It wouldn't happen to be COD Black Ops, would it?

When i turned my Ps3 on this mornin i changed the disk and put anouther game in. its been doing the spinning line in a circle thing for the last 10mins. it was working fine last night. plz help!

Either bad laser or dirty laser. Take your console apart if you dont have a warranty break down the disc drive metal case and wipe your laser with a q tip and rubbing alchol not to wet though kinda wipe qtip on ur arm to get most of the alchol off the qtip so it wont pour into the laser when you wipe it off. hopefully that works if not its a bad laser.

I got my Wii recently, when i try to insert a disc to play a game, the error message "Error reading on disc, please refer to your nintendo operation manual", the display of this message, i can't do...

forcing the system to shut down won't cause problems. The main issue here is that the laser probably is bad in the drive.

Take a can of air and gently blow some into the drive. This will make sure that there is no dust or dirt on the laser.

Try to a few discs in the drive and if it still doesn't read it then that means the drive is bad and you would need to either replace the laser or the drive itself.

You may have dust on the Blu-ray lens. The lens has 3 different wavelengths, one for games and bluray cds, one for cds and one for movies. The best thing to do is to use a disc cleaner which you can buy down at your local electronics store. The cd contains small brushes which clean the len of dust and dirt. Also try removing as much dust of your unit as possible as playstation 3 consoles are dust magnets.

Wont read discs

Downloadable games are not playable on PS2. If you're trying to play pirated games that you've downloaded from the Internet you're going to need to have your PS2 hardware modded to play DVD-Rs, which is expensive, dangerous, and illegal.

Cannot read disc

I had the same problem with my Wii. Unfortunatly nothing worked to fix the problem so I called Nintendo's customer services. They were able to replace the unit free of charge. I would simply give them a call: 1-800-255-3700 and press 2.
Good Luck,
