My ps2 won't reada lot of my disks. it will read audio and playstation one disks, but if i put in a dvd, it says that it can't read it, and when i try my ps2 games, it will go to the browse screen and say reading disk. then, sometimes if i wait an hour, it's still trying to read it, sometimes it will show that it's reading the disk, but then when i tell it to play the disk, it just goes black, sometimes shows the usual playstation 2 logo, then goes back to browse. i've tried a lot of things. i've tried wiping the scanner with a towle (it's not easy. i have one of the big bulky ones) cleaning it with a towel that has rubbing achocle on it, setting the read speed to fast, spraying the inside with airosoul, and usuing the auto diagnostic thinger-migig. i've heared of thouse lens cleaners where it's like a disk with brushes on it, but i have no clue where to get thouse. please help me, i've had my playstation 2 for servral years, and it was working perfectly until i tried playing the new .hack game that i got.

Undortunately, if the disk is scratched, there is not much you can do, other than buy a new disk. Lots of video game/DVD rental stores have disk repair machines, so you could try and take your disk there to see if that helps.
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!
If the DVD you are buying is original then it will just work on your ps2 that is also not downgraded. But if the DVD you bought is downgraded and your PS2 is not then it won't work. look for a technician who can downgrade your ps2 to read pirated copy of games. In philippines, we don't buy original copies, we just download it from the internet and burn it to a dvd. At the same time we downgrade our PS2
A lot of ps2 systems have been having a balance problem with discs that have top art. try putting a piece of tape right around the hole in the center of the disk and then try again. it may help to solve the problem
you might want to get a long q-tip and gently put alcohol on it and swap the lens.then have another tip ready to dry off. ps2 games are basiclly a dvd . and you can find info about a lawsuit that sony has against them for not being able to read dvd's.
Is it all of your disks or just that one? If it is just one disk then you should try and clean the disk. If it is all of the disks then you may have a dirty laser eye and need to get a dvd cleaner, I personally recommend the phillips brand dvd cleaning kit. It should be a disk cleaner and a cd/dvd cleaning system for the laser eye. It usually runs under 15 dollars. If this doesnt work then your system is shot and you should replace it.
