Disk read error on slim ps2 scph 75003


hello pauldonp...if this is an early version of the slimline they had a problem with over voltage which inturn took out the laser.your only option may be to replace the laser . sony did bring out a mod for this..i preferr the real old version of the ps2 as they had all separate boards and if one went faulty you didnot have to replace the lot ,also the lasers were a lot cheaper than the later models .in the slim lines the lasers are not all that expensive .they do take a bit of setting up as you have to know the ohms setting on the laser for each model..hope this helps

Disc read error


You will ne4ed to clean up the PS2. open it up and clean the laser lens with alcohol on a cotton swab. If it is the Slim Ps2 model you should not use Alcohol. Use A glass Cleaner like windex on the slim. Sometimes the magnet gets week and you need to add some magnetism to help improve the spindle grip on the Game disc. Cut up a refridgerator magnet and place it in the white cap thatt clamps the Game disc in the cd player.

Slimline PS2 decides wich games it likes


The only Idea I have is that your Laser lens may be melting. This would explain the eratic behavior you describe. I have found that in the progression of the meltdown, the Laser hates reading silver backed discs at first. Then it will progress to not reading DVD's at all. Then nothing.

You need to look at your lens up close with a Magnifying glass. To do this you must take the console apart. you will need a new laser if you find that melting of the lens and or its support frame are melted.
