Sony playstation 2 console problem

None of the PS, PS2 and DVD discs will play on my PS2 console. I insert a disc and it begins to spin. It starts spinning at a certain RPM (no noise)and then after 5-6 seconds, the RPM would speed up and a noise would start coming from the console. I took it apart and watched it. Everytime I would insert the disc, the same exact thing would happen. (5-6 secs and noise would start). It sounds like a rubbing sound. I watched it carefully and couldnt see any rubbing. The TV screen reads "No data" and on the bottom "Reading disc..." (blinking). I cleaned the laser already. The discs I used are fine. It was never dropped. Could the disc be slipping on the disc pad, when the RPMs sped up? I cleaned it with rubbing alcohol and Q-tip. Does something need to be adjusted? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank You
Dave Quick

My ps2 screen says 'insert a playstation or a ps2 format disc

t's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken

Game loading

  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. I do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].

Problem of ps2 console

Hi Faizy,


It should play Cd, Cdr, and DVD as well.  If it will play PS2 and ps1, it should have not problem playing the other three.  If your discs are dirty that was cause it not to read.  If its more can you please expand on what is happening.
