Try another game, if the drive still doesn't rotate the discs then that means the motor is bad so getting a new drive put into the ps2 would be the best option.

When i insert a god of war platinum disc in my ps2 it shows please insert playstation or play station format 2 format disc.why


You may need to take apart you PS2 and rotate the white gear about 1/8 of a turn or so and test with just the DVD lid on before you put it back together. If you still get the error try another 1/8 of a turn and so on. Detailed instructions and pictures can be found here on how to take apart your PS2

Ps2 wont SPIN disks it tries to read and spins for like 1sec PS2 SLIM


If it's having issues reading ANY kind of discs (CD's, DVD's, PS2 games) it might be due to a malfuctioning lense or a disk rotator motor issue.

Since it's agaisnt the PS2 TOS to modify or take apart your PS2 you should contact customer support or tech support with this issue.

If there's that option is not aviable you should try ordering the required parts online from different distribuitors: http://www.eachgame.net/category-88-b0-min0-max0-attr-1-sort_order-DESC.html

How to get Rock Band to work no the ps2


Hi! Here are the tips to get Rock Band work on the ps2: Clean the disc well. Run another disc in the PS2 for about 5 minutes, then try the Rock Band disc. Plug in a standard controller, navigate to the browser screen, and if the PS2 reads the disc, simply select it with the controller. Insert a copy of Rock Band Track Pack (PS2) and let it run until it gets to the Harmonix screen. Quickly switch this disc for the Rock Band disc, and reset the console. Insert the disc so that the "K" in Rock Band on is pointed at roughly 6 O'clock. If the disc isn't read, then open your PS2 and rotate the disc one hour to the right. Repeat this until it is working or until it is back at 6 O'clock. Be careful with your Rock Band disc as some of them barely work to start with, and you don't want to damage it more. Save your receipt because if it doesn't work at all you will want to return it. Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee

Not reading games


It's old....

Really though I have gone through 3 ps2's already, and the tracking system inside that controls the laser eye gets worn out and you have to resort to turning the ps2 on its side or rotate it around in order to see a disc. It's a pain I know.

Replace the ps2 with one of those small ones or just go get another one. Not much you can do.

Ps2 wont read disc


firts try cleaning it with a cd cleaning kit... if the problem persist then the problem must be in the motor that makes the disk rotates... i am pretty sure it is moving too slow to be avaible to read the disc..
here are some places that you can go to buy your lens.. www.playstationmods.com
www.kanection.com
www.thinkprice.com

if you are not to sure that it could be the lense that is failing, is better that someone can have a personal look at it.. instead of me since i cant see well how it acts...
