    i have the slim ps2 and it nakes a scraping sound, then says disc cannot be read. Already tried cleaning. No warranty.

    I have the same problem as Veronica's ps2. I brought the question to a technician at a computer store. The techincian said I need a disk format to reformat my station.

Hello try cleaning disc and lense..if disc has scratches .ones that go straight across disc are not to bad but if they follow disc in a circle ,lens will follow scratch as it is reading.when cleaning disc use a cleaner as any thing else will scratch..also try another game to see if your lens is okay .they can fail for no reason.

    hello...sometimes you have to manually clean lens..this requires dismantling the unit..there is actually 2 lenses in ps2..the other one is under the first .one reads cds other reads dvds..if you are not confident on doing this it may be advisable to get a service done . you may do more damage to unit ..if this does not work then your lens may be faulty..there is quite a few lens in ps2s depends on model. slim line are not to bad on price..thick ones are a lot dearer..all have to be set up.you just dont fit and play. on the slims there was a mod for these as they would go over voltage to the lense and blow it ..this is all i can tell you .

Ps2 repairs


is it all game disks or just one ? It may be something as simple as a greasey finger print on the disk or a scratch that stops your console from reading a disk

Unable read disc


Your disc probably has a few scratches, which is making it hard for the Wii to read the disc. If that's not it, then it might be that the game is WAAAAY to out of date, but I don't think that's the case here.

My wife bought me the harry potter and the deathly hallows part 1 but it will not load on my wii it just say to read manual on trouble shooting this is the 2nd disc took the first 1 back all other games...


Will its seems if the game is used you will need to clean it as its scratched. Most game stores will resurface the disc for $5-$8. That will take all the scratches out. Dont try a skip doctor as those wont fix wii games they will fix dvds and xbox 360 games though and they cost around $40.

A problem with installing lego creator harry potter.


Try cleaning the disc first. There may be dirt or fingerprints interfering with reading it. The CRC error means the data is not being read correctly. If the error continues and this is a game you recently purchased, I would recommend returning it to the store and exchanging it as it's probably a defective disc. If you are trying to install a copy you downloaded you should try downloading again as there is some error in the data.

Ps2 keeps saying disk read error everytime disk is put in no matter what disk is put in what can i do to fix


  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. We do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].
