Re: ps2 wont read disc

Firts try cleaning it with a cd cleaning kit... if the problem persist then the problem must be in the motor that makes the disk rotates... i am pretty sure it is moving too slow to be avaible to read the disc..
here are some places that you can go to buy your lens..

if you are not to sure that it could be the lense that is failing, is better that someone can have a personal look at it.. instead of me since i cant see well how it acts...

PS2 will play any audio cd and any ps2 blue game disc. but it will not entertain a silver game disc or dvd. just keep getting Disc read error.

sounds like your laser is failing. You can find tutorials on how to adjust, clean or replace your laser. Do a google search for " ps22_bing.gif disc read error " it will give you a choice of plenty of tutorials to follow. Good luck

Ps 2 disc wont turn

I had this same issue with my PS2, honestly I think it was something to do with the laser eye reader that reads the disc, when it is dirty the disc won't even spin or attempt to read it.

you can either take an air compressor and when the ps2 is off, have the disc tray open and blow the dust out of it.

Or, i personally would take the ps2 apart and clean the diode itself with some rubbing alcohol. Just don't void your warranty or somehow break it.

This article will help you with disassembly: Hope this helps!

Please.. help me... my ps2 slimine is comepletely ruined..

Since you "smashed" which made things much worse (been there, done that). It was probrably fixable but now that it scratches I can only assume that the lens (laser) is scratched and damaged "beyond repair". The only suggestion I have, if you really want to fix it is to replace the lens and probrably the disc tray too. Fot the trouble it's worth too fix and the fact that there is no guarantee that it will even work after you fix it, your best bet is too buy a new one or at least a refurbished one.

Ps2 will not read disc

Check your disk for scratches fingerprints ect,,
if thats all good step two
try useing a lens cleaner

****(( tip and trick for scratched disks ))****
a crayon rubbed on the disk then wiped off with a lint free cloth
no t-shirts dish towels that will just add more scratches
remember start at the center wipeing out to the edge.

if none of that works you may have a lens problem

My PS2 wont read any discs.

check the adjustment of ur cd holder, it might be very deep that causes the cd to touch the lens..coz lens usually move up and down, forward and back to read the cd...
