My ps2 does not read any disk

Try with any audio disk, if it does not read, then it might have lens error. There can be more then lens problem, including motor, lens ribbon etc. If you do have a cd lens cleaner, try to clean the lens and check again. If problem dosn't goes, contact your nearest dealer, the device is very complicated for you to service. Thanks

The playstation got really sensitive with reading disks

Sounds like you need to clean the lens on your PS2. The best solution is to find a DVD player lens cleaner from a local electronics store (make sure it is a good quality one, don't buy the cheapest one) and put it into your PS2 disc tray. It will play the disc using the DVD player on the PS2. Make sure you follow the directions for the lens cleaner very carefully, as you don't want to accidentally scratch your lens.

That should help with the reading issues. Good luck!

I have just bought a PS2 but it does not read any

the laser lens might be dirty.
try this:
use a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol (not dripping) to clean the lens.
gently place the q-tip on the lens and gently twirl it.
use other end to dry it, again twirling it.

you could also use a laser lens cleaner for video game systems to clean it--sold at Best Buy or Walmart, Target, etc

hope this helps :p

Whatever ps2 game disk inserted,the ps2 won't just read disc.

hey! calm down boy, now here, just listen and follow or do what i said exactly ok, now, go to your mom and ask some money to buy the head cleaner or disc drive cleaner. do you know what is that? its a cd software that you are going to insert to the PS2 drive and it clean will clean the eye of your ps2 drive, so that it can read the cd. ok. you can buy this cd cleaner on the radioshock. ok
