Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Compact System Shelf System

2 Answers

We haven't even had a ps2 for a month

When you turn it on it makes a noise while reading the disc. I goes to the system configuration screen and says reading disc and then says data not available.

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

You should wait for a few days for it to work again, or maybe replace the disk drive.

Ps2 slim clicking problem


Your lens is repeatedly touching the disc. In the future, this could be a big issue, and it is a sign that your lens is breaking down. On the slimline models, specifically SCPH-70000 models or greater, the lasers are disposable just about. They weaken easily, and they stop working fast. You can get a new laser for about 20 dollars from some websites.

Check some of your discs. If you notice any circular scratches, you'll know that your lens is touching the disc. Does it still read PSX, PS2 games (including DVD-9 dual layer games like Guitar Hero) well? Does it read fast? Can you still watch movies on your PS2? If not, your lens is breaking and you'll need to replace it.
