Even though I can't go into it on this post due to the nature of the beast so to speak but your problem is the potentiometer pot on the back of the PS2 laser lens (The one dealing with DVD adjustment). This is a common problem due to either one of two things. 1.) alot of movement of your PS2 (ie taking it to a friends house, car rides, shaking, dropping, etc etc etc.) or 2.) A lot of usage.

In either case what is happening is the potentiometer on the back of the lens has moved out of correct alignment.

In english? Your laser lens's laser beam is not producing enough energy to read the disk correctly.

So it has to be reset back to its factory position. Check this site it will help you out.

Why won't my playstation 2 read colored discs? It reads silver discs fine, but red, black, blue, etc., get disc read error.


That is a very odd problem. There are a couple reasons this could happen. The first depends on the age of your console. If this is one of the older systems, (one of the first one's sold), then it could be that those disks are incompatible with your firmware. Otherwise, it would sound like the eye of your disk reader is malfunctioning, and not reading through the colored plastics correctly.

If other games work fine on it, then the problem is with the game. If it is new, I would try to exchange it. If it is a used game, I have found that some of the used game stores can buff/resurface the disk for a small fee. The place I use charges $3.00 per disk. They can fix computer games and DVDs and all kinds of games.

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc


Hi Elvis,

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
