    All that happens is that the browser comes up and when you enter it trys to read memeory card , but says no data exists. Can not find any way to just run the game disk loaded in it in order to try and save data!

On the slimline the lids do not close that well,the spring is to hard,so what i did is put something on top of the lid like a cup or something,and it stoped the problem alltogether

Hi DOMexcla,
this is a pretty easy fix.
You probally have the PS2 in a dusty area.
This will cause the dust to fall on the lens, thus, not being able to read it.
Try cleaning the lens, or buying a cleaning disk.

I installed a replacement slim ps2 lens but now my console won't read my discs?


Remove the blob of solder so the area in the red circle looks like this, or the laser will not engage.

The disc spins but doesn't show anything. It goes straight to the browser and system configuration screen. It acts like there's no disc in it.

Sony machines have notoriously bad lasers. I find that with the slim if you have a small amount of nail polish remover on a cotton bud and dab the laser (whilst off and without touching the laser) that does the trick

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.
