    We've got the older version of PS2 and it is reading disk error. We have tried cleaning it and have it apart. We tried another website and noticed that there is not the white lens adjuster in it. The website said to turn it clockwise and the lens will move but we don't have one! Is there any ideas? Thanks!

Which system is this. the newer slimmer version or the brick. if its the brick, maybe just go buy a new ps2 altogether or perhaps a ps3, but if its a slim one already possibly consider getting a new laser. its most likely shot and not reading the disc. try taking it to a diagnostics center for even more help

When playing games the xbox screen freezes.


Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs. Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating “Disc Read Error” or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. A common problem that Xbox owners are reporting is if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.
Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “the ring of death”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but professional disc repair services is normally required to restore disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

www.discREPAIR.ie

Check the “More Info” & “FAQ” Sections for further details on disc repairs and related matters.


If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the discs is in play, the games console itself may require repair.
You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.

Hope this Helps!!

It freezes when beginig the intro 2 the game


make sure your other games are playing fine. If your other games are playing fine then make sure the disc for call of duty WAW is clean with no smudges or dirt on the bottom and top of the disc.

If you still have problems then the disc for call of duty is bad and you would need to get another one.

If your other games are having probblems then take a can of air and gently blow it into the drive to make sure there are no specs of dust or dirt on the laser.

If you still have problems then the drive would need to be replaced.
