Every time i try to play a ps1 game in the ps2, i get a disk read error even though i am using a ps1 memory card and ps2 games work perfectly on it. i have the original ps2

Hi,the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DON'T use regular rubbing alcohol.
Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses.
Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone.
This method clears read problems most of the time.
That will do.

Take care.

Had ps1 game resurfaced, no longer works on ps2

Sounds like you need to get your money back ..the resurfaceing can also do more bad than good
But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way

Slim ps2 disk read error

I don't want to put you down or nothing but, buying the slim ps2 wasn't a great idea. If you bought the original ps2 it would've been better. The thing about the thin ps2 is the hd is small, the laser tends to become weaker faster. Go get the ps2 checked out someplace.

My Ps2 isnt reading disks!

Hi Emily, this is the ABSOLUTE fix to that problem. Put 1 piece of tape (2 pieces total) on each side of the hole thats in the center. The 2 pieces of tape should be parallel to each other and as close to the hole without touching it. Use regular clear "invisible" tape. If it does not work with just 1 piece, add another piece of tape directly on top of the other pieces to make it thicker. OR just use the sticky part of a post-it which is a little thicker than regular tape. I tried this the 1st time, & have not had any further problems for 6 years!

PS2 Console disk read error

You are going to have to get the lens adjusted or get a new one. I would hope just to get it adjusted, because it will be cheaper. Send it to a repair shop and start having fun again. connie
