Disk read error

I tried your solution, and I got the lense cleaned, but now when I try to close the ps2 the disk holder raises up too high so I can't close the ps2. i didn't do anything other than clean the laser so i am not sure what I could have done or what I can do to fix this new problem. Please help if u have any ideas.

Every time i try to play a ps1 game in the ps2, i get a disk read error even though i am using a ps1 memory card and ps2 games work perfectly on it. i have the original ps2


Hi,the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DON'T use regular rubbing alcohol.
Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses.
Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone.
This method clears read problems most of the time.
That will do.

Take care.

PS2 won't read disk


A lot of time, blue disks have much more problems being read than others. Same with golden disks. Honestly, the best thing you can do, is clean your lense in your ps2 with a Q-tip and a SMALL amount of rubbing alcohal. If its the thin ps2, then all you have to do is open the top and do this. if its the older version of ps2, then you need to open it up, and unscrew the top of the drive to do so, then you will see the lense. I used to have this problem frequently. Andn this is how i solved it. however, its a temperary fix, and you will keep having to do it. honestly, if its already starting to do this, you will probably in the future have more trouble with even silver disks, and black (ps1) disks. If you just bought this ps2, i would suggest gettingg your money back. if you got it for free or something similar... you might just want to either get a new drive (if its an old style one) or buy a new one alltogether if you want to not have to go in and clean the lense every 2 weeks.

Ps2- disk cannot be read is it just scratched?


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.

Playstation 2 problem


I would try cleaning your Playstation games, Check and make sure that the games your trying to play are not cracked in anyway. Also, if you have your system standing vertically lay it down horizontally. Many times after you've closed the disk in it lens to far away from the lens.

Ps2 not reading discs


does it still read the disk you was playing or not if it dont then you could buy a lense cleaner put this into you ps2 and then after it has cleaned the lense try your games again you can buy these really cheap and they are just a disk with little brushes onn that cleans the lense in anything that takes disks if this dont solve the problem and the ps2 dont play any disk at all then the laser will need replacing you can replace it yourself but it will need to be recalibrated witch is something a pro must do as not doing this will stop it reading any disk but you only get this prob if you buy new laser you can get second hand ones but you never no if they are working or not hope this is some help to you

Cant play games or cd's or dvd's


Sounds as though the drive may be failing. If the unit spins and whirs a lot when loading disks, it will most likely need replacing
