Not 100% sure, but back when I worked for a Sony reseller this was most commonly caused by a faulty lazer (you'd be amazed at how often this happens). Lazers in general do not have an infinite lifespan, but video game consoles are natorious for this problem.

Presuming your PS2 is outside of its warranty, you can pick up a replacement lazer online from somewhere like eBay or some asian electronics websites for around $20-$30. It's relatively easy to replace yourself or an any electrician who works on dvd players etc will have no difficulty installing it.

The other common cause for this is scratched disks. Either way, it sounds like your machine is not able to read any information from the disk.

PS2 HELP stuck on browser config BUT reads a disc BUT wont actualy let me play it...


PS2 has a special laser that reads DVD or CD media differently. It can be "bad" in a way that some work and others don't. Cost of laser replacement is too high, buy a cheap core unit and game on.

My ps2 scph-3001 will not play new games


I had to change the browser settings. If I turned the diagnosis on and up the disc speed it played the games. Every time I put in a new game I had to go through the changes. It did not work every time, I had to be patient.

Browser shows no data on PlayStation 2 Console


I am having the same problem with my PS2, but I have an HDD inside of mine. I am told this is a circuit problem inside the PS2 that doesn't allow the information to be transfered to the RAM. That's why you see “No Data” instead of the usual problem of “Disc Read Error”. I hate to say it, but it sounds like you are going to have to do the same thing I am about to do. Send it in to Sony and get it repaired.

I am also pretty sure this PS2 you are talking about is the large fat one, and not the slim one.
