Assuming these disks are PS2 (some PS1 disks have been known to have compatibility issues), I would make sure the laser and disks are clean. Laser can be gently wiped with a q-tip that is dampened with water, I prefer a half water/half rubbing alcohol mixture but use at your own risk. I'm not sure from your post if you meant that this console was purchased only a month before or if you have been unable to get it to function for a month. If it was recently purchased I would for sure return it, providing you have the sales receipt. Calling the store and explaining the situation couldnt hurt if not. The slim PS2 consoles IMHO were made cheaply and have had issues with the laser not reading correctly and even burning out. Sony knows this since they were too busy working on the then upcoming PS3 release, they really screwed us with the slimline. If it has been purchased recently it may well be under warranty with Sony, though the charge to ship it to them is to me not worth the trouble and I have heard a few stories about this whole process that is enough to make me not even want to purchase another Sony product -let alone a PS3!! I can prob help more if you can provide more details. =D -TLCM

Your lens or motor are dead. However, I am thinking that it is the motor. If it is on warranty, call Sony. They should fix it. If not, take it apart, and plug a 3v current into the drive. + = red, - = black. If it is dead, get a replacement from a website like eBay.
turn it on wait wen it makes de noise for a minute but wit no disc then open it move the lens back and forth very lightly if you do it to fast the ps2 might not read for a day or 2 when ur done moving the lens back and forth intel it don't move lightly any more then try a disc if it don't work do this process intel it works but wait 5 min before you do it again so the ps2 won't reck for half a day before you turn the ps2 off to do the process ithhis works for me 1st or 2nd times
Disc Read Error generally means that the game disk cannot be read by your console.
Reasons for Disc Read Error 1. Disk surface scratched or smudged. 2. Disk surface dirty. 3. Lens surface dirty.
Here is what you can try doing.
1. Check the game disc for any scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.
2. If the PS2 console is lying down, please set the console to on its side or if it's on its side set it to flat position, restart the console and then try game again. Always ensure the PlayStation 2 is in a cool, well ventilated place.
3. Remove and reinsert the Memory card of your PS2, restart the console then try running the game again. Other troubleshooting that you can try.
Change the Disc speed of the PS2 DVD and then try again.
Start the PS2 with no disc in a drive. Press the "triangle" button on the controller. Use the up and down buttons on the controller to select "Playstation Driver” and press the "triangle" button on the controller. Select Disc speed. If it is set to "Fast," select "Standard"; if it is set to "Standard", select "Fast" and press the "X" button on the controller. Press the "O" button on the controller. Insert the game disc and restart the PS2. Try running the game again.
Turn the Diagnosis On for PlayStation2 to auto detect the best settings.
From the Browser and System Configuration menu. Press the triangle button to select Version. Highlight the Console from the list and press the triangle button - this accesses the next menu option. The Diagnosis will be highlighted. Press the X button to access the options available. Highlight "ON" and press the X button to affect the change. Restart the console and try the game again.
If the above steps does do not solve the error then you would probably have to replace the disc.
Note: If you are using the Slim version of PS2 make sure that the console is properly ventilated and that it should always be in the standing position, as the slim version of PS2 no fan or any other cooling unit unlike the normal PS2.
try and change the settings on your ps2
on the screen that says browser and system configuration press triangle.this will take you to another screen. while Playstation Driver is highlited press triangle again. this will take you to a screen that will allow you to adjust the way in which your ps2 reads discs that are inserted. try changing the settings to fast nd smooth
also some times you just have to insert the game over and over again until it works. its kinda like breaking in a new pair of shoes
It seems you may need a new laser, as it isn't reading the disc. !!WARNING: DO NOT TAKE IT APART YOURSELF, AS I HAVE RUINED MY PREVIOUS PS2 THIS WAY. I HAD TO BUY A COMPLETELY NEW ONE AND THROW THE OLD ONE AWAY. WITHOUT A CERTAIN PART IT IS USELESS.!!
It's a well known fact PS2's had a cheap lazer fitted to them, that's why when it gets chiped to play copy games, not long after it starts playing up.
The lazer may just need aligning, purchase a cd/dvd cleaning cd rom as these can check audio, lazer alignment and clean the lens.
