Re: virus

As unlikely as that is, yes it is possible any system can be comromised by a viruse but i don't think thats whats going on Sony systems run off there own operating system. What i think it is, is your optical scanner probably punked out on you that is the #1 reason disks dont' scan on consoles

Slim ps2 says "unable to read disc"

You might need a new DVD drive too. Sounds like you need expert help, i had sent my PS3 to after i attempted to work on it my self and they repair everything, even saved my data. Got it back within the week and at a very reasonable price. Hope this helps you.

My ps2 is makeing a werd sound when reading dice

It's not able read the disc - try cleaning the disc, try another disc, etc to narrow down the problem. If it won't play any discs either the lens is dirty or an actual hardware failure in the unit.

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.

My PS2 tells me "this disk can't be read".

HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail and both lens. This is housed in the loading dock assembly(Drive). This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

Long Loads and Lagging

A couple things come to mind. If the lens is dirty, then there will certainly be issues with load times, or load failure. Check your game discs for scratches and scuffs. If a disc has a scratch or too many scuffs on it, it will make it difficult for the laser to read.
Clean your discs, and clean your ps2 lens with a basic ps2 laser cleaning kit. You should be able to find them anywhere.
I don't recommend cleaning the lens without a kit if you are not familiar with the internals of a PS2 or cleaning electronic components. If after cleaning your disc and lens it still gives you issues, there is an angle adjustment gear in the ps2, but we'll cross that bridge only if the cleaning doesn't work.

Ps2- disk cannot be read is it just scratched?

hello try cleaning disc and lense..if disc has scratches .ones that go straight across disc are not to bad but if they follow disc in a circle ,lens will follow scratch as it is reading.when cleaning disc use a cleaner as any thing else will scratch..also try another game to see if your lens is okay .they can fail for no reason.

My ps2 doesnt read some of my games

This can sometimes be caused by the actual PS2 media. PS2 discs usually have either a silver or blue bottom. Silver is DVD media and Blue is CD media. Sometimes the laser mechanism gets a little wonky and can't read one type or another. Typically, older games had the blue discs (Kinetica and Gran Turismo are some of the oldest games on the system) I would check the color of your existing games and see if that is an issue. Another possible idea is that you just got a bad disc, it doesn't happen very often but it does pop up from time to time.

PS2 will not play any games

The main issue is there is a problem with the laser. You may be able to run Sony PS1 discs or Music CD's but DVD's are normally what quit working first. If you are inclined to open the system and it is out of warrenty you can do so. BE VERY CAREFUL There is a ribon cable that goes to the power button. Also there is most likely a LOT of dust in the system. and clean the lens of the drive. If this does not work, you'll have to replacement with new laser. laser type: khm-430b or pvr-802 of the same type. Hope this helps..
