This almost always happens if the lasers in your device are going faulty, either that or a thing called a "Quadrant Detector" is going the same way.. You see the software in an attempt to "read" over any scratches or imperfection on the disk, ramps the Current to the Laser Diode up & down, too much of this is NOT good for the laser, and detector at all, a few times would be OK, but often it is made to read them over and over again... well eventually those two components wear out, not actually fail but become damaged... this then causes these problems you are experiencing. you see, there are TWO lasers One for CD's & One for DVD's sometimes ONLY one will go faulty. usually the DVD one as this generally has more current to it anyway. Hope that helps.

Sometimes is can read ps2 cds... sometimetimes it cant and can only read ps1 cds? wat is the problem of my console??? help plssss.....


PS2 CDs are in fact DVDs, whereas PS1 CD are CDs. The DVD reading part of your laser unit is failing. You need to replace the laser unit. This is not necessarily an easy process as you may also need to tweak the positioning of the laser as well.

My PS2 doesnt read orignal CD but works very well with pirated CD


It's quite possible that your PS2's chip is malfunctioning, thus not recognizing original cds. Pirated CDs don't have a protection, thus the chip can't de-protect the original cds, not allowing them to be read.

Another cause would be that the discs are damaged.

My ps2 slim cannot read the ps2 cd game after I'm use it to play a movie dvd.. but it still can play dvd at all..assist me please....


Your laser is probably on its way out -- as a laser starts to fail, it will first stop reading PS2 games (but will read some DVD movies OK). It will then stop reading DVD movies and only play CDs. Finally, it will not read anything at all. You can find a new laser, based on your PS2's model number, at the following website:

yes its 100% lens problem.the lense of the ps2 consists of two parts,one is the one that reads the dvd disc and the other one that reads the cd-r only.the dvd reader is already busted that is why it only recognises only some cds which are cd-r's.try replacing the lens and you can play dvd discs again.hope this one helps
