If you have tried a CD cleaner disk with no results, then this is a problem with the laser that reads the disks. These lasers have two adjustments on the bottom of them, one for CDs (PS1 games) and one for DVDplaystation slim - 5.gif (PS2 games). It is sometimes possible to adjust the DVD side and get it to work (there are many tutorials on the web on how to do this), but unfortunatly this is a temporary fix. The only real fix is to buy another laser. They are very abundant on the web (ebay1.gif is a great source for them too!). They are very reasonably priced now. Either way the unit will have to be disassembled. Hope this helps you out...

If you have the original PlayStation 2 console, there was a problem with it playing some of the newer games released for the ps2 after the slim was released. You can try using a laser lens cleaner to clean the laser, but the original ps2 just simply won't play some games.

you have to change your laser lens, thats probably what's wrong since your ps3 does not recognize the game when you insert it, you can chage it your self by buying a new laser lens for your ps3 if you do make sure to specify your playstation3 system i.e: Playstation 3 80gb or Playstation 3 SLIM 250 gb

My slim playstation 2 is not working need answer quick


Haha i understand your distress :) if your slim ps2 is not turning on, first check and make sure that all your wires and stuff are all plugged in to EVERYTHING. also, make sure your outlet works too. corroded electrical outlets wont work. Also, make sure your PS2 cooler is not blocked in any sort of way. if you need any more issues, just ask :) ~~RJ~~

Ps2 slim only reads a few game discs not all.


You have two issues here, one is that your CD ROM lens is dieing slowly but, you can fix temporarily by cleaning this lens with a CD lens cleaner. secondly, the power supply side on the main board is starting to malfunction and may be on its way out. that is what humming/buzzing sound you are hearing during play. hope that helps ya and, thx for using fixya:)

Dvd playback


Is yours an original Playstation or a Slim?

Likely your lens is just dirty. Ars put up a great tutorial for this repair (I advise you not to play with the lens-adjustment section unless a mere cleaning doesn't work) here:

http://arstechnica.com/articles/paedia/hardware/ps2.ars/1

If it's a Slim, skip the "opening" stuff and just follow the instructions for cleaning the lens, it's already exposed when you open the top of the unit.

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.

Disk wont spin


First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
