    I have the same problem with my brand new slim PS2.

    Cannot try your fix because nothing comes up on the screen.

    Its seems there may be a problem with the unit getting too hot....after an hour with the console off, it powers up fine.

    Is this a common problem that will happen with most all units or should I return it for a new console?

When the home screen comes up where it says browser and configuration, Hit the triangle button this will take you into the version screen Now scroll down till you see cd or dvd drive and select it, change the disk read speed the fast. Try this if this does not work go back to the version screen again and select the very top selection i think it say console and turn the diagnosis on and reinsert the disk to see if it reads any more ?'s on this subject feel free to email me at killapunk@hotmail.com

My ps2 wont read disks but it turns on well and everything it just stop reading disks.


Try cleaing the lens. Get a CD lens cleaner from Wla-Mart or somewhere close by. This is a CD with a small brush glued to it that removes the dust from the laser lens.

Both my marvel vs. capcom games don't work


i dunno what the problem might be, but i can imagine the disc having many scratches, the lens of consoles are pretty delicate and being honest they cant read scratced discs at all. The best choice u have is to go at the nearest gamestop and pick off those games off the bargain bin.

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

Ps2 not reading disc.


First you need to define what it IS and IS NOT reading. You'll need to run some tests.

Test 1: use a regular music CD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and put that into your ps2 and see if it starts playing it.

Test 2: insert a regular DVD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and try to play that.

If neither will play then it is one of two things. Your laser lens is out of alignment, or your laser lens is damaged.

If one plays but not the other, it is the potentiometer pots on the back of the PS2 lens that need adjusting. You can read more about that on one of my other posts ::.HERE.::

Ps2 not reading discs


does it still read the disk you was playing or not if it dont then you could buy a lense cleaner put this into you ps2 and then after it has cleaned the lense try your games again you can buy these really cheap and they are just a disk with little brushes onn that cleans the lense in anything that takes disks if this dont solve the problem and the ps2 dont play any disk at all then the laser will need replacing you can replace it yourself but it will need to be recalibrated witch is something a pro must do as not doing this will stop it reading any disk but you only get this prob if you buy new laser you can get second hand ones but you never no if they are working or not hope this is some help to you

PS2 wont spin games


if it reads the silver ones it should read the other i would have said change the laser but as you have done this i could be that it has over heated and their is no way of curring this have you tried playing the blue ones on another ps2 if this is not the problem then their is nothing you can do other than sell yours for spares or buy a broken one you can get them off ebay cheap as you no your laser works usually the one people sell that dont work is the laser so you could put the laser into the one you buy then you should have no probs sorry this isnt nothing else you can do

PS2 wont load PS2 games


you need to get a laser disk which cleans the inside of the ps2 especially for ps2 games and if that doesnt work then you need to get someone to undo all the case and clean it themselves hope that helps :)
