My ps2 slim wont read god of war II disc but it reads all my other games just fine so please i need a solution


God of War II being one of the few Dual-Layer discs on the PS2, it is possible that your problem originates from your PS2 lens being unable to read it correctly. The PS2 Slim is supposed to be able to read Dual-Layer, thus you should try cleaning your lens, it may be dirty, leading to this kind of error while still able to read Single-Layer discs.

On my ps2 after reading its disc, message will appear "disc read error"


Hello, you are most probably using a PS2 Slim, they have a very sensitive Lens Radiance. If the CD is a little scratched, a CD lens cleaner could help. Or if it is not a PS2 Slim, it must just require a CD lens Cleaner :)

Disc Read Error


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:

Please insert ps2 format disc?


Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Ps2 slim problems reading disc


After countless hours of tying to figure this out I went to the basics. This ps2 slim has 3 sensors and after all sensors are the key to making the machine work properly. After testing everything known to man I decided to go around the sensors by taping them all down. Low and behold when I cranked the ps2 slim up the disc now reads and plays perfectly.

My ps2 wont load games


hi Melissa Pat,

You must have a Slim model, as only slim models are aggrevating about adjusting and clenaing. If not take a Magnifying glass or Jewelers Loupe to look at the laser lens extremely close.Sometimes it takes a good bit to get it clear.

Read Error (With FFX game)


Hi Raven, Its sounds like you have a PS2 Slim with a melted Laser. What you will find is that the Slim will only read CD's, CDR's, PS1 Games, Blue back PS2 games and DVD's. I can repair this for $35 plus shipping to and from The Playstation Clinic in Fountain Inn, SC. The webpage is www.playstationclinic.com If you do not have a Slim, you either have dirty disc, or Lens. You may have left some fibers from the Q-tip across or around the lens.
