Re: Ps2 cannot read any disc?

9 out of 10 times when the fat ps2 cant/wont read disk its the cd tray needs to be adjusted.

I would suggest opening up the ps2 and cleaning the console with Qtips and rubing alcohol. if the laser will wont read. go to type in fix my ps2 laser. you will watch a video on how to adjust your cd tray.

The reason for this issue is if the laser is to close or to far from the cd the laser cant read the cd.

the worse problem u can come across is the laser 100% failed. which is rare but you can buy a new/used working laser on or google it. the laser will have the model on it you want to make sure you get the correct model. otherwise it wont work.

contact for help

Re: 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.

My ps2 slim wont read god of war II disc but it reads all my other games just fine so please i need a solution

God of War II being one of the few Dual-Layer discs on the PS2, it is possible that your problem originates from your PS2 lens being unable to read it correctly. The PS2 Slim is supposed to be able to read Dual-Layer, thus you should try cleaning your lens, it may be dirty, leading to this kind of error while still able to read Single-Layer discs.

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc

Hi Elvis,

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
