Re: wont read disks

As I always suggest for consoles of this age, get a new one. You'll find PS1's with a few games on ebay for around a tenner nowadays.

Your console could have any number of faults, faulty/misaligned laser unit, faulty spindle motor, faulty lid catch sensor, and the cost of replacement parts would probably be more than a replacement 2nd hand console.

If you haven't already, try running a dvd cleaner through it a couple times. Usually clears it up for me.
Good luck. Please let me know how you made out, thanks.

Hi there,
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.

My PS2 wont read any disk.

HI, the optics assembly has failed. the actual optical lens assembly will need to be replace in this case. you can try to clean the lens with a cleaning disk.. this may wake the laser. if the cleaning doesn't produce results, replacing the optical lens assembly will be the next move.
