Re: my PS2 isnt reading discs

Hey angad,

I'm going to assume that you've had the PS2 for a long while. If it isn't under any kind of warrenty, you could try opening it up, and just clean it out a bit. Sometimes the eye can get dusty over time and have a difficult time working.

You could also purchase a cleaning kit from electronic stores, or even wal-mart. All you do is apply a cleaning agent onto a cd that comes with it, and you put it in.

Don't fret too much about this issue, it's quite common in older consoles that read cd's/dvd's.

There is no data, reading disc ps2

Clean the disc with rubbing alcohol. There may be scratches, which causes the Ps2 to not recognize the disc. Also, gently blow into your ps2. There may be a dust build up.

If your ps2 is in the upright position this could be the problem as the disc will not sit propeely and rattle around and cause scratches, the best way to have it is in the downright position as the disc tray will be flat and wont slouch down, try turning it on and pressing the close switch.

You might need to get your ps2 modified so it can read all kinds of disc...i had the same problem before with my console so i took it to a shop and got it checked and modified. when i got my console back it was working really well.

I helped a friend fix his PS2 with these symptoms using this webpage:

This is not to say yours has the same problems, but it's probably worth a try.

Good luck.
