Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
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.
