Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I have an original style PS2 which although is running fine on start up, does not read the discs and boot up so the gane can be played. The browser option works fine and I have cleaned the laser. Any ideas please?
Otherwise go to youtube and search for ps2 laser repair, quite a few good video how to's...

Your lazer lense has bit the dust. Depending on your model type the first gen systems lazers are very easy to replace. The later versions sony made it harder to replace. You can find out what model you have by looking at the back of your PS2 then you can either call sony or go to there website and find out what generation PS2 you have. Then go from there. Hope this helps

The laser on the ps2 runs on rails so it can move back and forth and read the disc if the laser can't read the disc it will move back and forth. on the older ps2s the way the laser is moved is there is a electric motor that spins a worm drive moving the laser the laser has a small arm that reaches out and rests on top of the worm drive. The clicking noise u hear is the little arm that is circled staying stationary and the worm drive spinning. to fix this i suggest oiling the rails the laser sits on and while u have ur ps2 apart cleaning the laser with some rubbing alchohol and a Q-tip.

Take a pair of pliers and grip the top of the unit. This will allow you to apply "just the right pressure" so the disc can spin. It's been working for me.
