Disc Read Error

I need step-by-step instructions on how to enable a setting on my PS2--Model #SCPH-77001 so it can read the disc. Is the solution to choose DVD ROM from the new setting menu and to then press ok? All of my son's thirty other games he owns work just fine. But we get the message ''The disc could not be read'' when we try to load his new Guitar Hero 5 game. I know that it is a dual-layer disc, but it works just fine on my Dad's older PS2(not slim) and on my niece's 2005 slim PS2. There must be something we can do to fix this. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

If a dual layer disc is not functioning, there is a problem with your laser. This is a frequent issue with Playstation 2 consoles. As a laser starts to fail, the first type of disc to stop reading is the dual layer disc. Eventually regular DVDs will start skipping in the middle of the game and loading times will increase. Eventually it will stop reading DVDs as well. The solution is a replacement laser. You can find one at the following website for $30 including shipping:

Can't play dual layered disk in playstation slim silver


I know, this is very annoying. Mine is SCPH-79001.
Just put in the game like you would any game (that would read) and you should hear a few ticks. Turn the ps2 horizontly with the front facing you. And whenever you hear a tick, just tap it against you knee, then you should hear it spinning.

My ps2 wouldn't read GH world tour or metallica, but know it works. Hope I helped

Playstation2 DVD read error ''The disc could not be read''


I've encountered similar problem with my PS2. I really can't play the disc that I bought. There might be some burning problem that difficult to read by your PS2. What I did I've tried to copy it and burn in to a better DVD disc and it works. Try it.

Read disc error


You said the model is 77001?? is that the slim type ps2?? if it is try this troubleshooting step

if the console is lying down flat where the disc lid is at the right side, try applying pressure on the lower right corner of the lid, sometimes the lid's safety button gets worn out and it will give you disc read error if this solves the problem then the button really is busted, if you have technical background you try and change the button

Sony playstation2 model SCPH-77001 SERIAL FU46.....


Good ! but we need to do one more thing, before checking the resistance.
You should carefully mark the current location of the adjustments so you can go back to them if needed. When turning the adustments yiu only need to turn VERY SLIGHTLY.{ one degree at a time } Turning to the right is increasing the Voltage and to the left is decreasing it.Oh you will see two Controls, one for the DVD and THE OTHER FOR THE CD.This is what you been waiting for : DVD should Read { 650/ 1000 ohms}
CD ={ 950/1200 ohms}....the DVD control will be on the left and CD on the right, facing you.or upside down.
Good luck.
