Tienes que limpiar el laser manualmente con un cotonete impregnado de alcohol isopropilico limpiar el lente cuidadosamente primero con el lado humedo y despues con el lado seco quitar los residuos que hallan quedado si no funciona con esto trata de darle un ajuste al laser.

    You have to manually clean the laser swab impregnated with isopropyl alcohol to clean the lens carefully first with the wet side and dry side after removing the waste are stayed if this does not work is to give it a laser adjustment.

Turn on my PS2 and I get a read disc error. Can I have the directions to fix this?


Disc Read Errors (DREs)

The PlayStation 2 was infamous for the number of disc read errors that occurred. There are a number of causes for this problem and a number of fixes:

  1. Clean the disc: Dust or smudges from fingerprints can cause disc reading problems. Use a high quality cleaning cloth and remove all smudges from the disc by lightly wiping outward from the center hub. Do not use a circular motion.
  2. Clean the disc drive: If not the disc itself, dust buildup in the drive is often the culprit. For the tech savvy, you may remove the disc drive, and gently clean the assembly with a cleaning cloth. For a less intrusive approach, use a can of compressed air, and attempt to blow the dust out from the vents and the disc tray, though this may also cause dust to settle where it is not desired.
  3. Repair the disc: If your game disc is scratched, it is sometimes possible to recover the disc with a disc repair kit.
  4. Ensure proper venthilation: To avoid overheating, make sure that your PlayStation 2 is placed in a well ventilated area, and that the vents are not obstructed.

Disk read error, turn console on goes to system configuration press x goes to mem card and says reading disk then says disk read error


This is a result of one of two things-

1) Your disc is dirty, damaged, or scratched. To fix this just clean it gently with a wet cloth, if it still doesnt work you can take it to a game store to have it cleaned there. It is possible that it is scratched to much and is unable to read at all.

2) Your Playstation 2's reading laser has become damaged or dirty. I suggest blowing air through the system with your mouth or preferably a can of compressed air which can be purchase at most retail stores.

This error seems most likely to be a disc issue.

Disk read error


The 'Disc Read Error' error message, 'Please Insert a Playstation 2 Formatted Disc' error message, or the 'No Data' error message is an indicator by your system that the console is having difficulty reading the game disc. This could be for many reasons; usually this is because the game disc is damaged or unreadable. However, in some situations, this can be a sign of a more serious issue with your Sony PlayStation 2. Try all of the steps listed below to troubleshoot the error:

Check the game disc.

1. If there are any noticeable scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.
Note: Do not rub hard and do not rub in a circular motion as this could further damage the game disc.
2. If there aren’t any noticeable scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try using that game disc in another PlayStation 2.

* If the game disc works in another system, this is an indicator that your PlayStation 2 may be damaged. For information on getting your system repaired or replaced, you will want to contact Sony directly for assistance at 1-800-345-SONY.
* If the game disc does not work in another system, this is a good indicator that the disc is damaged or defective. To acquire a replacement game disc, you will want to refer to your manual for warranty information specific to your product.

Some Playstation systems, especially the older models, have trouble reading some newly manufactured Playstation 2 game disks. Sony recommends using their Auto Diagnosis tool (http://www.us.playstation.com/support/ps2/hardwaresystem/default.html) to resolve this issue.

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 game disc says disc read error, but there is nothing wrong with the disc


Most disk read errors that are not caused by the disk itself are caused by having a dirty lens in the drive you put that disk into.

Two easy ways to clean that lens are either buying a cd lens cleaner (cd with brushes on the underside of it) or by using a can of compressed air to blow the debris off the lens.

If you go the route of compressed air in a can, there is an extension that comes with the can...it usually looks like a mini red sipping straw. You can reach the lens by open up the drive tray and pulling the power to the console when it is open. The reason to pull the power is that you can now move the tray halfway closed without it auto closing on you. When you have access to the lens from positioning the tray, stick the extension into your console and place it right at the lens and press the nozzle to spray the air. Do this a couple times and try reading your disk again.

Hope this helped.

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].

Playstation 2 Disc Read Error


After extensive research on this subject and working on several Playstation II systems. I found out the reason your system will play only blue disks and not silver is a alignment problem with the laser. It could be tilted or set to high or low. The quickest solution is to call Sony and get a new laser with the shuttle. If i am not mistaken it cost 50.00 and just go to the playstation site select support and it will explain in full detail how to take your system apart and replace the laser and shuttle.
