PS2 Won't read disc at all....

When I turn on the console if the browser dosen't go straight to the game, I have to reset it over and over again. Sometimes it still won't read so I have to resort to opening and closing the disk part hoping it will read...
Please help my Playstation has never had these kind of problems before...

It might be that ur lens is just dirty and might need cleaning the best way to do that is to take the top cover off ur ps2 be carefull not to rip or tare the cable for the power/open-close buttons take the top off the disk tray get a q-tip and clean the lens that always works for me and if u dont wanna take ur ps2 apart u can always take it to a service center

My ps2 wont read any discs includindg brand new goes straight to browser menu even with disc in


try cleaning the laser lens with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol (not dripping).
use the other end to gently dry it (twirl the q-tip).

or you can use a laser lens cleaner for video game systems.

Disc read error


Disc Read Error generally means that the game disk cannot be read by your console.

Reasons for Disc Read Error
1. Disk surface scratched or smudged.
2. Disk surface dirty.
3. Lens surface dirty.

Here is what you can try doing.

1. Check the game disc for any scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.

2. If the PS2 console is lying down, please set the console to on its side or if it's on its side set it to flat position, restart the console and then try game again. Always ensure the PlayStation 2 is in a cool, well ventilated place.

3. Remove and reinsert the Memory card of your PS2, restart the console then try running the game again.

Other troubleshooting that you can try.

Change the Disc speed of the PS2 DVD and then try again.

Start the PS2 with no disc in a drive. Press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Use the up and down buttons on the controller to select "Playstation Driver” and press the "triangle" button on the controller.
Select Disc speed. If it is set to "Fast," select "Standard"; if it is set to "Standard", select "Fast" and press the "X" button on the controller. Press the "O" button on the controller. Insert the game disc and restart the PS2. Try running the game again.


Turn the Diagnosis On for PlayStation2 to auto detect the best settings.

From the Browser and System Configuration menu. Press the triangle button to select Version. Highlight the Console from the list and press the triangle button - this accesses the next menu option. The Diagnosis will be highlighted. Press the X button to access the options available. Highlight "ON" and press the X button to affect the change. Restart the console and try the game again.

If the above steps does do not solve the error then you would probably have to replace the disc.


Note: If you are using the Slim version of PS2 make sure that the console is properly ventilated and that it should always be in the standing position, as the slim version of PS2 no fan or any other cooling unit unlike the normal PS2.
