You need to adjust the laser. If you open the PS2 and get the drive apart there is a white wheel inside that when turned will adjust the laser up and down. It'll take a bit to get it ajusted just right so it'll read all the different disks, but this is what needs to be done to get it working again.

I do not know what to do says Please insert PlayStation or PlayStation 2 format disc. Please read it if you write to me with otgovor.A'm desperate.

if the disk is a Blueback, most modern PS2 consoles won't touch it. bluebacked disks still have their data stored in CD format rather than in a Data DVD

to play a Blueback
1. turn on the unit without a disk in
2. press Triangle on "browser"
3. scroll up to the top item and press triangle again
4. turn "Diagnostic Mode" ON
5. back out with circle, and start the browser
6. put your disk in with the browser on. is should read the disk

some disks will still cause the red screen (like cheat devices) occasionally

My ps3 wont read disk even after i've replaced the lens

If it is a certain disk that your Playstation wont read then its more then likely your disk is corrupt or unreadable. Perhaps its time to buy a new disk?
If your problem is that most or ALL your disks are unreadable then im sure the problem is to do with the playstation itself. (Proberly the lens again.) Contact Sony on their freephone and explain the problem to them. The default warranty is 1 years free cover. If you've had your playstation under a year then Sony will happily replace your console for free. Usually takes 2-3 working days.
Hope this helps!

your laser is weak or faulty.
Try using a laser head cleaning disk, or have a replacement laser fitted.

Playstation won't read game disks

What you probably have is a disc read error, if you don't want to get a new system first you can always open it and repair yourself but that voids the warranty but is voided after the 30th day, I have tried it a few times in the past and it works but is time consuming and if your not careful you can break it beyond use. But if you're brave read this article.
