Re: No Data

When u put ur PS2 for a long time. Mosture and dust could be effect on it. I think ur problem is not complicated except it need to be serviced (optical).
Therefore contact to ur nearest PS2 expert for this.And if u can open it gently take a cotten bud (dry.Dont try to use any liquid or any other thing) ang clean ur lens upper side gently.And if u cant do it by yourself then contact with expert.
Hope this will solve ur problem.

Goes to Startup Screen when I put a game!

try cleaning the lens. for a slimline PS2, try a Q-tip with a little bit of alcohol on it and lightly touch the lens. gently TWIRL the Q-tip. use the other end of the Q-tip to dry the lens, again, gently twirl the Q-tip. or you could use a laser lens cleaner (see below). for a fat PS2, either use a laser lens cleaner specifically for video game systems (Best Buy, etc.) or go here and go to the very end. hope this helps :D

Corrupted Data on PS2 memory card

I don't know if you have been trying to delete the data with a game inside the ps2, but in case you have, try this.

Turn on the system WITHOUT a game inside, select BROWSER, the MEMORY CARD ICON, and i believe the corrupted data icon is a grayish black square. Choose options and then delete.
I am also heard that inserting a music cd will work as well, probably just has to not be a game inside the ps2.

Corrupted data comes from turning off the ps2, or removing the memory card while the game loads or saves data to/from memory card.
I really hope that helps, ps2's are meant to be played! Good luck.

Ps2 not reading disc.


Theres a high chance that your laser simply broke. You should let someone with solder experience let replace the PS2 laser.
You can buy the laser on websites like this one:

Browser shows no data on PlayStation 2 Console

I am having the same problem with my PS2, but I have an HDD inside of mine. I am told this is a circuit problem inside the PS2 that doesn't allow the information to be transfered to the RAM. That's why you see “No Data” instead of the usual problem of “Disc Read Error”. I hate to say it, but it sounds like you are going to have to do the same thing I am about to do. Send it in to Sony and get it repaired.

I am also pretty sure this PS2 you are talking about is the large fat one, and not the slim one.

Ps 2

Try this, it was the problem on ours. It wouldn't spin the disc or anything, when I went into browser it would say "No Data" I went to system configuration, then to digital out (optical) & it was set to "ON" I changed it to off, put in the game & it started right up. Not sure how mine got switched to ON, but I searched all over the internet & never found that mentioned as a possible cause. I just wish I would've figured it out B4 we went & bought a ps3 & traded in all our ps2 games since the 40gb ps3 won't play them. Hope your problem is as simple as this!

Disc read error

Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.

Playstation 2 Disc Read Error

After extensive research on this subject and working on several Playstation II systems. I found out the reason your system will play only blue disks and not silver is a alignment problem with the laser. It could be tilted or set to high or low. The quickest solution is to call Sony and get a new laser with the shuttle. If i am not mistaken it cost 50.00 and just go to the playstation site select support and it will explain in full detail how to take your system apart and replace the laser and shuttle.
