Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I would buy a brand new game nd put it in my ps2 micro(the thin version) and all the games would skip
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.

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.

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!
