Hear is a few things to try:

1) First buy a lens cleaner (about $10 or so at local electronics store)

2) If you have your PS2 sideways, lay it flat.

3) Make sure games do not have fingerprints, scratches, etc. If games are scratched get a disk doctor, game doctor (about $30 at electonics store)

Hope this helps!

Disk read error


Hello,

The reason your play station 2 keeps reading disc error is either because the lens is weak, dirty, or the disk is not compatible with the console.

You can try to use a lens cleaner to clean the lens or totally replace the lens with a new one.

You can also try other disc to see if its the same thing it will show.

Take care

I have a Play Station 3. I rented and download a movie today. When I went to view the move I get a error message that reads I have been signed out of the play station network error code8001050F. Please...


I have been on the phone with the PSN and they said they are having mantanice done on there end. There original ETA was 9pm EST but has now been moved to 10pm. Just be patient.

Rented Movies, Trophys, Games will also have an affect with this issue until its resolved.

Inserted disc press play grinding sound and disc left scrapped


If your xbox box it's new I would take it back and get another one, becase you do probable have problems with your dvd drive and it will keep scratching the games. the laser on the drive doesn't work as hard when playing a music cd than when it plays a game or a dvd.

If you don't want to take it back, then play a couple dvds and if it reads then fine then you could try again. it shiudn't take more than ten second to read a game so if its taking longer just get it out.

Hello We purchased the Play station 2 game Heroes of Might and Magic (Quest for the Dragon Bone Staff). The back, of the game cd is blue. When we put it in the play station 2 we get the message disk...


If other games work fine on it, then the problem is with the game. If it is new, I would try to exchange it. If it is a used game, I have found that some of the used game stores can buff/resurface the disk for a small fee. The place I use charges $3.00 per disk. They can fix computer games and DVDs and all kinds of games.

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.

360 grinding noise and unplayable disc


Crack open the DVD case and see whats going on and try fixing it yourself. OR Buy a new drive off of eBay and transfer the firmware key over from the old drive too the new one.
