It might just need the laser replaced or it could be that the laser sled screws are too tight not allowing the laser to move freely.

Hi,
This could be One Of several things, If the Spindle has warped Or Distorted, then the disk isn,t spinning around perfectly.
If the game skips after playing a few Minutes, Then theres a possible circuit Board fault. ( Components Overheating )
A speck of Dust on The Laser Head.
The Console Itself Could be Picking up electronical intereference from An Adjacent source. ( i.e DVD player Or Digibox et,c )
If the console has been stood upright ( on its end ) and the machine has ever been knocked over or fell, with a game in the Drive. This would surely cause damage to the Laser Head, and or disk-drive itself.
Solution:- Try using the console Lying down flat ( On It,s Own ) not on top any other electrical Appliance.
Try using the console on A Different T/V set.
Check That The Consoles power And T/V leads are firmly pussed in to the T/V And Console.
If none of the above works, you have a console fault, and you should take it for repair, or return if it,s still under Warranty.

It wont read my brand ne4w video game


Hi

if the video game is original, not copy, maybe the problem is coming from the hardware (the laser, could be damage )

tip:
clean the laser with specific CD cleaners, you can buy it on informatics store.

if your PS2 can read old video games, the problem could be from software (firmware)

tip:
try to update your firmware!

if it don't work, go to a Sony store, and explain your problem to them, an give it to try recognize the problem and/or repair it

i hope i have helped
good luck

PS 2 new and old games keep freezing


It needs a new laser... it's a pretty common issue with older PS2s. The lasers simply eventually wear out after time. You can get a new laser for the older PS2s at the following website:

My ps2 says disc read error on all my games


your laser is most likely incredibly dirty. you should try spraying a can of air into it to clean the dust away from the laser. if that doesn't work the next step would be to open it and manually clean it with a q-tip or micro fiber cloth. if that doesn't work, throw it in the trash. because most likely your disc drive is done. you would probably spend just about the same amount to get a new one and replace it as you would to buy a new ps2.

How can I clean the eye on my playstation 2 console.


You can try to clean the lens of your PS2's laser with a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner.

You can pick one up from WalMart, Target, etc. for about 15 dollars.

Then you will need to follow the instructions that come with the disc.

The lens cleaner has small brushes on the bottom of the disc, so typically to use it you need to insert it and then play a specific track so that the laser will go under those brushes.

My PS2 will play DVD, But I get disk read error when I try to play a game. I have already took it apart and cleaned the lens, and also adjusted the lens wheel.


well it´s time to change the laser lens...you can force adjusting the dvd laser focus in the micro pot located under the ps2 lens...but it´s better to buy a new lens unit..

Slim ps2 disk read error


I don't want to put you down or nothing but, buying the slim ps2 wasn't a great idea. If you bought the original ps2 it would've been better. The thing about the thin ps2 is the hd is small, the laser tends to become weaker faster. Go get the ps2 checked out someplace.

I dun't know, but mine does the same thing! Silver satin right?

try cleaning the lens with a DVD laser cleaner disc, I bouth one at Walgreens for about $12.00 it's Scotch brand, has a few brushes that gently clean the laser, dont touch them tough cause u can get oils from ur fingers on it, if not use a Q-tip with rubbing alcohol, not too wet! and gently in a curcular motion clean the lens! GENTLY! ... if all that don't work, and the game's not scratched, the laser could be bad, I heard that the laser sucks on the PS2!
