Re: disc wont read

If the disk is not reading then do not go through all the hassle to ship it through sony. they are no help at all. i suggest you clean it thouroughly with eye glass cleaner, nail polish, toothpaste, or get a disk cleaner which is moderately priced. these methods helped me.

Re: disc wont read

Assuming you don't have a modchip installed.

1-800-345-7669 this is the sony customer service number. Call this number if your PS2 is getting Disc Read Errors. Sony will fix your PS2 for free even without a warranty. Remember to specifically mention the words "Disc Read Error" while speaking to the representative. He will give you the information for sending in your PS2, or he will give you the choice to email you the information.

The only part you will have to pay is the shipping (anywhere from 10-65 dollars depending on who you use). Also make sure you insure your PS2 on the way there. Why risk losing your PS2 just so you can save a few bucks?

You can call this whether you live in the United States or Canada. If you live outside of those two refer to your owners manual for your local Sony customer Service line.

The repair time varies but is always very short. Some have said that they received theres back within a week from when they shipped!

There are also other ways to fix your ps2 without sending to SONY, though i am very skeptical of these ideas. I mean why risk your PS2 when you can send it and get it replaced for free?

If you are tech savvy you can click one of the following links for info on fixing it yourself.
If you don't know what you are doing "DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME".

My ps2 wont read silver back disks. how do you fix it

Hi there!
When your PS2 starts to have problems reading silver backed discs you could be experiencing one of 2 different problems:
  1. Your laser or disc is dirty (clean off your disc with a soft cotton cloth, and clean the laser in your PS2 with a cd drive cleaning cd)
  2. The laser in your PS2 is going, you will need to take it into a shop to have it repaired, replace the laser or disc drive yourself (this will void the warranty if you have one) or get a new or different PS2.
Hope this helps!

Dvd rom in ps3 not reading

first of all its a blu ray drive. And sorry to say your probably out of luck, blu ray drives in ps3's ****, they are the cheapest blu ray drive on the market and they wear out fast. I think sony fixes them for 160$ without warrenty, if u do have warrenty just send it in. Hope this helps.

Our guitar hero world tour wont work on my daughters ps2

the reason is that the disc is multilayered because the game is so large and because most ps2's are by now 3+ years old the reading lens is dusty/dirty so cant read the 2nd layer of information so rejects it as a disc. this can be sorted by cleaning the lens with the special lens cleaning discs or some other cleansing agent. ask a local electronics store for help

Ps2 cannot read any disc?

You might want to send it back to Sony for a replacement usually when the disc can't be read it's because the optical scanner is damaged and needs to be replaced.
