When you put in the dics, and on the screen says not reading disc

Disc read errors are mainly due to weak or dirty lens you should try cleaning lens first.
When your PS2 lens is covered by dust it wont allow laser to read disc so its better to clean your PS2 lens first,if problem still exists then your PS2 lens is weak and you will have to take it to Sony repairer for service.I recommend all of PS2 owners to keep their PS2 at dust free environment.

Watch this video it will help you to learn how to clean your PS2,its easy you can do it at home.
Wish you good luck and hope cleaning lens will solve your problem. Thank you!

My ps2 wont read the disk can you help me

Try cleaning the laser with a DRY q-tip in a circular motion. Just be gentle ;)

If that doesn't work then the laser needs to be replaced :(

My ps2 wont read the disc

your laser lens might be dirty.
if you have easy access to the laser lens, use a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol (not dripping) to clean it.
gently touch the q-tip to the laser lens and gently twirl it.
use other end of q-tip to dry it, gently twirling it.
or, you could use a laser lens cleaner for video game systems to clean it.
you can get one at walmart or target.
hope this helps :p

It wont read anything

I'm going to say that if it wont read any disk your laser has died but lets try to clean the laser before you do anything else. check out the video below it will show you how to clean your ps2. you said you have the slim ps2 if not use the ps2 large videos they will show you step by step how to repair your system.

if you find that cleaning the laser does not work you can get a new laser lens assembly on Ebay cheap about $10.00 with free shipping. then you will want to use the lens replacement video its good for the full size and slim.

I hope I have been helpful please don't forget to rate and good luck if I can be of any more help just let me know.

Slimline PS2 only plays PS1 Games and not PS2

Clean the LAsers Lens with Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass cleaner, then dry the lens. Try it see if that gets it going again.

If not your lasers lens and supporting frame is probably melting down. You will need a new laser.
Click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" Pick a good repair shop.
