MY PS2 IS NOT READING ANY GAMES(DISC) I PUT IN. (NOT READING)

I TRYED OPENING MY PS2 AND CLEANING THE SCANNER, WITH ALCOCHOL, BUT THE SAME PROBLEM OCCURED. I ALSO REMOVED ALL THE DUSK I FOUND EVERYWHERE IN MY PS2. AND I NOTICED THERE IS A BURNT (BLUISH) TYPE COLOR ON THE SCANNER. I DON'T KNW MAY BE THE ;LASER BEAMS SOME HOW EFFECTED IT. IM NOT SURE. IM THINKING THAT MAY BE REPLACING THE SCANNER IS THE BEST WAY TO GO.. BUT IM NOT READY TO SPEND ANOTHER 30 ARE 50 DOLLARS ON A OLD SYSTEM . I COULD SAVE THE MONEY AND PROBAbLY BUY A PS3 :). Any ways EVRYTIME I PUT A GAME IN THE PS2 IT SAYS READING DISC. THEN IT DISAPPEARS, THT MEANS IT MUST OF STOPPED READING IT.

There is no data, reading disc ps2


Clean the disc with rubbing alcohol. There may be scratches, which causes the Ps2 to not recognize the disc. Also, gently blow into your ps2. There may be a dust build up.

Reading disc


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.

My PS2 isnt reading discs


Hey angad,

I'm going to assume that you've had the PS2 for a long while. If it isn't under any kind of warrenty, you could try opening it up, and just clean it out a bit. Sometimes the eye can get dusty over time and have a difficult time working.

You could also purchase a cleaning kit from electronic stores, or even wal-mart. All you do is apply a cleaning agent onto a cd that comes with it, and you put it in.

Don't fret too much about this issue, it's quite common in older consoles that read cd's/dvd's.

My ps2 wont load games


hi Melissa Pat,

You must have a Slim model, as only slim models are aggrevating about adjusting and clenaing. If not take a Magnifying glass or Jewelers Loupe to look at the laser lens extremely close.Sometimes it takes a good bit to get it clear.
