Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
When i pluggled my ps 2 to my television set it started and when I inserted the cd in it then it does not any thing only two options appear on screen browser and system configration and when i clicked on browser it gives me disc read error i put this one game it the ps2. goes to browser screen when i click on game screen goes black (sounds like it`s loading goes) back to browser screen. another problem is it says no data on one of my games
Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.

After you open up your PS2 slimline. There is a silver track or bar that the laser moves up and down. I fixed our disc read error problem by lossening up both screws slightly. It took me a couple of adjustments before I completely solved the problem, but now it works like a charm. You can maually test it to see how smooth it runs down the track after your adjustment. Good luck.

Thanks for the wonderul help you made my christmas. My kids thank you. My ps2 is a little different, I removed the screws carefully removed the bottom cover there is a ribbon in the side of the bottom of the component side be careful not to pull this apart the ps2 will not work if you do the other steps explained the ps2 will work, if your laser eye is working be sure to clean the control arm will a Q tip. Thanks again
