You laser lens might be dirty.
use a laser lens cleaner for video game systems or a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol (if you have easy access to the laser lens) and use other end of q-tip to dry lens.
hope this helps :D

Getting a disc error when turning on the ps2 with ps2 games, but it works with ps1 games...!


Theres a wheel in the disc drive that controls the elevation of the lens. To mod your ps2 to read burnt ps2 games ONE would alter the height of the lens by adjusting the wheel ever so slightly. There are online tutorials in the precise adjustments for different disks. (one height reads only ps1 games, another height reads ps1 and ps2 games, and one more height reads ps1/ps2 and burnt ps1/ps2 games) Your best bet would probably be to just purchase another ps2 used, but if you want to do it yourself, you can.

Slim ps2 disk read error


I don't want to put you down or nothing but, buying the slim ps2 wasn't a great idea. If you bought the original ps2 it would've been better. The thing about the thin ps2 is the hd is small, the laser tends to become weaker faster. Go get the ps2 checked out someplace.

I helped a friend fix his PS2 with these symptoms using this webpage:

This is not to say yours has the same problems, but it's probably worth a try.

Good luck.
