My PS2 has stopped working!!!

spindle motor went bad it sounds like. Open up the ps2 and inside of there, you'll see a ribbon for the drive, take it off of the board and then reseat it.

Now put the top back on and try the drive again. If it still doesn't spin then the drive will need to be replaced.

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.

Ps2 not reading some disk

I had a problem like this before. If you look underneath the games some will have a silverr colour while others will have a puple colour. My old Ps2 would only play the silverish games while it wouldnt recognise the purple ones.

Not loading game

the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.

Problem with ps2

The laser is either dirty or burned out. When the disc does not spin, it usually is becasue the controller does not see any initial data coming from the laser. Clean your laser and see if you get any response. Post a repsonse if you need further assistance.

Cant play games or cd's or dvd's

Sounds as though the drive may be failing. If the unit spins and whirs a lot when loading disks, it will most likely need replacing
