It's not enough to use a disk to clean the laser lens. You have to take the PS2 apart and clean the lens manually. Nicotine, Incense, diffusers, and other smokes and just time itself clouds the lens. Not only that but the part that the disk sits and spins on needs to be cleaned over time as well to assure the disk is in proper alignment and Is not just kinda spinning on the spindle.
In that link i posted above you be led to directions on how to take apart your PS2 and what parts to clean. The instructions I have posted in that tutorial is for the (FAT) PS2 model not SLIMLINE. If you have a slimline model you don't have to take apart anything just open your cover and clean the parts in the video.
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.
Hi this is the commonist fault on all ps2 and even ps3 their is no way of repairing the laser itself the only option you have is to replace the laser unit the problem with doing this is that if you buy a new laser you will need to get it calibrated and to do this you will need oscilscope and these cost about £300 or if in us about $600 so thats the problem of buying new ones its often cheaper to buy new ps2 than go down that route. The other option is buying second hand ps2 of an auction site but the problem with this also is that it might have same problem as yours. What i did that made mine work for few months extra was to use ask.com and type in :Disk read error on ps2 or try this How to repair ps2 disk error or just try repairing ps2 On doing this i came across a site but i cant remember what it was called but this site showed you step by step instruction on how to adjust the laser slightly so that it played games again after following these instructions mine worked again for about three months. It basically told you to remove the case off the ps2 then where the laser is its like a black plate but you cant see the laser remove this black case i think their was about two little black screw on the top of the black lid covering the laser it covers the disk so you cant see the disk with case removed. Anyway remove this black lid then if you look at the back of the laser tray not at front where the game goes in but towards the back their is a white disk about the size of a coin now this site told me to first mark with marker the white disk so you know where you started from put line on the white disk then on something else but not the disk so you know where it was located before you turn it doing this lets you go back to how it was before you moved it. After doing this if you turn the disk slightly it raises and lowers the laser lense now you need to do this a bit at a time and then but the black lid back on with screws then try a game in it you can hold the black lid ontop of the laser unit if you want but dont push to hard and dont hold it to soft else game wont spin properly. Just turn this white disk a bit at a time then try loading a game keep doing this you can turn it either way if your lucky you might find that adjusting the laser hight might get it working again if not then the laser needs replacing but remember if it dont work then you need to turn the whit disk back to where it started from ie where you marked because if you replace the laser this white disk needs to be back where it was originally. If you are going to do this search the net first you should find the complete instructions on doing this ok also make sure you dont shine the laser in your eyes or other peoples eyes as its dangerous and can blind you in the future so make sure the case is on the laser before its switched on. If you cant find the site let me know and ill have a look for you ok also let me know if you need further assistance
the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
