The problem is with the disc drive itself. Most common problem is the give in the spindle starts to go and gets to be to much and you get floating of the disc while in play. If the system is still in waranty I would sudgest contacting the MFG and getting it fixed or replaced. If not in waranty then your only other choice is to find another system for cheap and rape it for parts and replace the drive.

Will not rèad any discs


You have either a scratched, dirty, or worn out lens if the disc spins and does not read. If cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disc does not help, I would recommend either buying a new PS2 DVD drive or a new PS2. A new drive will be about 5-25 dollars and you will either have to find somebody to, or you yourself put it in just don't destroy your PS2 in the process. You can find PS2's for about 40-140 depending on fat or slim and new or used.

On my ps2 after reading its disc, message will appear "disc read error"


Hello, you are most probably using a PS2 Slim, they have a very sensitive Lens Radiance. If the CD is a little scratched, a CD lens cleaner could help. Or if it is not a PS2 Slim, it must just require a CD lens Cleaner :)

PS2 Slim not reading discs!!!


I have a Wii and I hade the same disc reading problems...its a straight result of a scratched or dusty lens...I have two solutions, you can do what I did and send it in for the experts to help you out, or a better trick for cleaning the lens is buying a compressed air can and blowing some of that air all over the lens and air intake and release slots.Hope this helps u! :)

If you have old ps2(fat one) or some of the older slim models they are unable to read the new dual layer discs like GHWT. You can send your ps2 back to sony to reformat it to be able to read these new discs for about $50. There is currently a class action lawsuit against sony and activision for not being upfront about this problem.

Hi there


Hi carlosca.

You could have some lint of hair stuck under the disc drive hub. look at closely to see and get it out.

The best thing is to know that the Slim laser has a plastic lens, and it will melt. Do not leave a disc in the powered up PS2 when your not playig with it. If you leave it running with a disc in the system and it is not reading the disc well, over time the Laser will heat up and melt the lens. If you posted this, how do you not have way of getting parts online.
Go to www.playstationclinic.com and call them to ask for parts you need, they will send them to you at a very reasonable price.

My ps2 slim is leaving rings on my games???????


I think the motor spindle is damaged , as the motor spindle holds the disc up or it could the lens assembly being misaligned which causes the lens to be angled and scratch the disc

i recommend you to look at the site http://www.forums.gamewinners.com/forums/showthread.php?t=513070#Basic%20servicing for servicing if possible (slimline is somewhere at the bottom)

PS2 Slim Line Prblem !!!


Lenses adjust their distance on ur disc, the harder they can read it, the nearer it goes on the disc...can it still read other discs? if it wont, then ur lens is damaged because of too much scratches, and if it does happen, u have no other choice but to repalce lenses...and by the way, there's an adjustment under these lenses that determines its distance on the disc, but before adjusting it, you should know what ur doing, coz it miht damage the lenses, again....
