What you probably have is a disc read error, if you don't want to get a new system first you can always open it and repair yourself but that voids the warranty but is voided after the 30th day, I have tried it a few times in the past and it works but is time consuming and if your not careful you can break it beyond use. But if you're brave read this article.

Your CDs could be scratched, try a movie DVD and if that plays, then clean your game disks, if not; well, time to get a new PS2.
I hear Guitar Hero is GREAT!

I recently bought a Kingdom Hearts 2 game and tryed to play it on my PS2 but everytime I put it in a disk drive it does this weird noise and then in a couple of minutes says that it cant read the disk. But...


What is probably happening is that the disk is either too scratched or too dirty to be read by the PS2's optical drive. Try cleaning the disk with a disc cleaning kit or by simply rubbing in with a microfiber cloth or 100% cotton shirt. If that fails to make it clean enough to be read, then you will have to get another, cleaner copy of Kingdom Hearts 2.

My playstation 2 makes a weird clicky sound when I try to play some of my dvds or games and sometimes it comes up with disk error or unable to read disk and its a brand new disk


Your PS2 lens is displaced from its original position that is what scratching your Discs and makes weird noises too.There can possibly be another reason for them ,your PS2's reading lens is dirty and it is covered by a layer of dust that scratches your Discs and makes sounds too.
You should first clean the lens of your PS2 watch this video to know how to clean your PS2's lens:


Disk read errors are mainly due to dirty or worn out lens,so clean your PS2's lens to get rid of this problem and as for that sound that will get fixed by cleaning lens if still it makes that sound then you will have to take your PS2 to repairer to set the lens height.
Thank you!

Ps2 (slim)


Well first off, make sure the disk if in PS1 OR PS2 format. That is what the PS2 Is requesting when it says "Please insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk. The Slim PS2 has various problems reading disk.(Don't Know why? I own it and Know it does). The Fat version(1st version) is a much better system, in my opionion. Try blowing air to clean the disk reader. Or changing the disk reader portion out, At a small price.

DONT FORGET TO RATE SOLUTION

1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

2. IF THE LASER CLEANING DON'T WORK ON YOUR PS2 SYSTEM PERFORMANCE THEN TRY ADJUSTING THE LASER VOTAGE.

3. IF THE LASER VOTAGE DON'T WORK YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE LASER

Playstation 2 problem


I would try cleaning your Playstation games, Check and make sure that the games your trying to play are not cracked in anyway. Also, if you have your system standing vertically lay it down horizontally. Many times after you've closed the disk in it lens to far away from the lens.
