Sounds like the laser may have gone bad on your system, try this - use compressed air to clean out the system, where the laser is, and other openings on the device. Then clean your game disc with a CD/Game Disc cleaner (bought at any gaming stores), try this. If this doesnt fix the problems then i would contact SONY and have them replace your system or atleast maybe they could try to fix it. Good Luck!

I put a scratched video game into my ps2 slim and it kept on reading the disc but the game never started it just kept on reading the disk.at the same time my ps2 is making a clicking sound.how can i fix...


Undortunately, if the disk is scratched, there is not much you can do, other than buy a new disk. Lots of video game/DVD rental stores have disk repair machines, so you could try and take your disk there to see if that helps.

The playstation got really sensitive with reading disks


Sounds like you need to clean the lens on your PS2. The best solution is to find a DVD player lens cleaner from a local electronics store (make sure it is a good quality one, don't buy the cheapest one) and put it into your PS2 disc tray. It will play the disc using the DVD player on the PS2. Make sure you follow the directions for the lens cleaner very carefully, as you don't want to accidentally scratch your lens.

That should help with the reading issues. Good luck!

My playstation 2 makes a weird clicky sound when I try to play some of my dvds or games and sometimes it comes up with disk error or unable to read disk and its a brand new disk


Your PS2 lens is displaced from its original position that is what scratching your Discs and makes weird noises too.There can possibly be another reason for them ,your PS2's reading lens is dirty and it is covered by a layer of dust that scratches your Discs and makes sounds too.
You should first clean the lens of your PS2 watch this video to know how to clean your PS2's lens:


Disk read errors are mainly due to dirty or worn out lens,so clean your PS2's lens to get rid of this problem and as for that sound that will get fixed by cleaning lens if still it makes that sound then you will have to take your PS2 to repairer to set the lens height.
Thank you!

Did you drop it? Maybe (if you did) the optical eye is off center and when it lifts up to read the game, the corner of it is scratching your games. And if you did not drop it, maybe it's dust, orsomething similar. Did you clean your console on the inside (where you put the disk). If not, you can clean it with alcohol and a soft but very soft cloth.

Anyways, hope this helps.

Won't work. disk won't turn


sounds like a faulty spindle. this is the part that spins your cd for the laser to read. if your using a fat ps2 its prolly the spindle. if your using a slim ps2 it could be the laser causing the problem not the spindle. the slim ps2 laser make the spindle work. if the laser isnt working right the cd might not spin or it might not spin fast enough or flat enough.

Play station 2 limeline scratching my game disks


I do not think moving the console while playing is the problem.  It might scratch, of course, when you move while you're playing, but what when you're not and it keep scratching disks?  Problem the people who have posted here, haven't been moving when playing.  My PS2Slim is scratching my disks too.  I have put a new unscratched disk onto it, and made it load the game, and just for few minutes I turn it off and take the disk out, I see a small scratch on near the outer side of the disk.  And it is doing that constantly, on the same place, without moving the console.  The console is not on vertical position, but horizontal.

I was reading somewhere that when the disk starts to spin it vibrates, which makes sense.  If you lift your cover and check, there is a piece of small cloth like or sponge, I don't know near the top part, near where the disk lense is, it kind of like keeps the disk still.  But from time to time of being using the PS2, that small thing gets worn out it could be probably that thing that is not working as it is supposed to be, so the disk starts to vibrate more than it use to and then the disk gets scratched.  This is just an hypothesis.  I still need to find a way to replace that small piece to see if that's the problem.

Disks wont spin on new laser


Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.

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.
