Your Laser is not seeing the Disc. Several reasons could be as follows:

  • Dirty lens on the laser
  • Bad ribbon cable not supplying power or reading the Laser.
  • Major misalignment of the laser
  • Motherboard Laser Driver IC burned up.
Alrighty then, you probably see now that when you get a no disc error, the fault is 99% related to the laser.

You have to clean it up and get all the dust out. Do not use alcohol on the Slim PS2 Laser. Use a q-tip dampened with rubbing alcohol to clean the lens. Dry the lens before you try it..

Foxconn p4m800p7ma-rs2 motherboard on Gforce FX5500 system halted

You refer to Master/Slave disks. Are you actually using the Master/Slave jumper settings? Must motherboards and OSs today recommend putting the disks in the CABLE SELECT jumper setting. The problem with the old Master/Slave setting is that the Controller on the Master Disk is used to control the Slave disk as well. This can lead to problems when disks are made by different manufacturers, as sometimes they are not fully compatible. In CABLE SELECT, each disk controller works independently.

Games freezes at same spot on 2 different Dogs Life Disks

Possibly the disk already damaged, see for tiny scratch or something on it.
Try cleaning the disk using disk cleaner, if still wont help, replace the disk.

Try a different disk, if it's OK, then your PS 2 is OK!!!

PS froze on start

If it is only one disk, clean the underside ot the disk with cd cleaner and try again if problem persists, the disk may be defective or the unit may have problems.

If all disks do this, there is most likely a problem with the system call 1-800-345-sony for assistance.

This was in the manual which was printed 9 years ago, so if the number has changed or they no longer cover the ps1, i whouldn't know what to do if cleaning the blue lens thingy doesn't fix the problem.
