    Thanks for the Windex tip...it did the trick. I called SONY two times and almost bought a replacement from them... I knew it had to be something simple since the unit worked in the aftrnoon and when my boys went back after dinner it was reading NO DISC. Then I found you guys. You saved me 150 bucks +...THANKS

You will ne4ed to clean up the PS2. open it up and clean the laser lens with alcohol on a cotton swab. If it is the Slim Ps2 model you should not use Alcohol. Use A glass Cleaner like windex on the slim. Sometimes the magnet gets week and you need to add some magnetism to help improve the spindle grip on the Game disc. Cut up a refridgerator magnet and place it in the white cap thatt clamps the Game disc in the cd player.

Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.

After you open up your PS2 slimline. There is a silver track or bar that the laser moves up and down. I fixed our disc read error problem by lossening up both screws slightly. It took me a couple of adjustments before I completely solved the problem, but now it works like a charm. You can maually test it to see how smooth it runs down the track after your adjustment. Good luck.

Your PS2 lens is faulty or it is physically jammed in it's metal rod which stops the lens to move smoothy. you better open the PS2 console and observe it offline for jam. or replace the lens with a new one.
