One thing you might want to do is get alcohol or perfume and put a little on a tissue paper and wipe the cd because it might be the cd that haas scratches or something. something else is maybe your laser that reades the cds is broken. try wiping it it works!!!

1.just take the disk out for a min and give a good wipe and without spittin, blow inside the umd tray

The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
or it could just be the laser. can also try and clean the laser lens.

    if the disk is ok then yes, if under warranty take it back.

Doesnt read any disc's


This is a common problem that you probably noticed a while back when it would freeze your game and say that the disk is unreadable. Sometimes the disk tray will not close all of the way. Anyway, the disk drive is gone, and I am sorry to say, there is no way to fix it without a new one.

Will not load some games


I had the same problem with my ps2. I found a solution that might help you. take a Q-tip and dip it in rubbing alcohol or water just intil damp. gently clean the eye and the rest of the disk tray. then dry it the other end of the Q-tip. when the eye dirty with dust or a hair or a small speck of paper or plastic from a disk will slow the ps2 down when loading. hope this helps!

Slim ps2 disk read error


I don't want to put you down or nothing but, buying the slim ps2 wasn't a great idea. If you bought the original ps2 it would've been better. The thing about the thin ps2 is the hd is small, the laser tends to become weaker faster. Go get the ps2 checked out someplace.

PS2 will not play DVD


Make sure the disk is compatible and not damaged.Try playing another disk and see what happens if you still do not get anything you may want to consider a xbox or 360 with remote control for dvds. Also check to see if ps2 has a remote for playing dvd disc. never worry!!
