Question about Sony Video Game Consoles & Games
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.
