Had ps1 game resurfaced, no longer works on ps2

Sounds like you need to get your money back ..the resurfaceing can also do more bad than good
But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way

your laser is weak or faulty.
Try using a laser head cleaning disk, or have a replacement laser fitted.

My ps2 has been droped, and now it won't read discs

I wouldn't open the outer case if you are just interested in doing a cleaning.  You can purchase a cd cleaner kit that allows you to put a disc inside that cleans the lens.  Otherwise the first step i would take is buy a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the system.  See if this improves the situation before opening the system.

PS2 consule says read disc error for every game inserted

I helped a friend fix his PS2 with these symptoms using this webpage:

This is not to say yours has the same problems, but it's probably worth a try.

Good luck.
