You might need a new DVD drive too. Sounds like you need expert help, i had sent my PS3 to videogame911.com after i attempted to work on it my self and they repair everything, even saved my data. Got it back within the week and at a very reasonable price. Hope this helps you.

My ps2 slim wont read god of war II disc but it reads all my other games just fine so please i need a solution


God of War II being one of the few Dual-Layer discs on the PS2, it is possible that your problem originates from your PS2 lens being unable to read it correctly. The PS2 Slim is supposed to be able to read Dual-Layer, thus you should try cleaning your lens, it may be dirty, leading to this kind of error while still able to read Single-Layer discs.

Please insert ps2 format disc?


Try inserting the disc in your computer. If it reads its fine. Then look if the Slus...... is compatible.maybe thats why it doesn't play. your ps2 must have an old bios system even if slim.

Ps2 slim problems reading disc


After countless hours of tying to figure this out I went to the basics. This ps2 slim has 3 sensors and after all sensors are the key to making the machine work properly. After testing everything known to man I decided to go around the sensors by taping them all down. Low and behold when I cranked the ps2 slim up the disc now reads and plays perfectly.

PS2 disc won't read or turn


Hi Blacknmild, You will not be able to tell the disc is spinning once the door is open. you have to open the slim up and simulate the door being closed by pressing the button switches at the left rear corner of the disc drive, and just behind the reset switch at the same time. Chcek out my repair site www.playstationclinic.com if you need service.
