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!
