My ps2 wont read silver back disks. how do you fix it

Hi there!
When your PS2 starts to have problems reading silver backed discs you could be experiencing one of 2 different problems:
  1. Your laser or disc is dirty (clean off your disc with a soft cotton cloth, and clean the laser in your PS2 with a cd drive cleaning cd)
  2. The laser in your PS2 is going, you will need to take it into a shop to have it repaired, replace the laser or disc drive yourself (this will void the warranty if you have one) or get a new or different PS2.
Hope this helps!

Ps2 not working /green light on disc not spining

i had a issue with my ps2 discs not spinnig but its was actually the laser which was dirty, i opened mine [ very annoying and hard as sum cord and come off easily and you have to have sum knowlegde as to how to put back together if wires start cominh off, of course if you have a slim try seeing if the laser lens is dirty , if so gently clean the lens with a soft cloth as to not make any marks on the lens, if its the motor well hey it could be replaced but ive never looked inside one yet

so if you have a phat ps2 then start removein the screws located on the bottom of the ps2, you can find instructions on google for correct disassembly, then when you have taken the top off and moved upside down towards the side of the dvd drive as the cord isnt that long and it should rest well, the the cover on the dvd needs to be removed and then you can see the lens, i simply toke my finger and cleaned it but this ps2 had a lot of dirt as it was thrown awaying by the prior owner, then reassembled and checked and mine worked, hope this is helpful a video i found

My slimline ps2 will play dvds but when I put in shadow of the colossus the system acts like it is loading by the loading circle on the lower right side of screen then the screen stays black and the game...

Take a Q-Tip and do light circular motions on the laser eye.
Often the case, you may just need to take a soft cloth and clean your video game disc.
It's one of the two.

My ps2 slim wont load rock band bundle, why?

Maybe clean the disk with a silky cloth or tissue (and, optionally glasses cleaner). I know it says not to touch the laser but if you do it with the soft cloth it will be alright. I've done it for years for disks that break down.

My ps2 wont read any of my games.

how many games have you tried? This could either be a laser problem and it needs replacing or cleaning, you can buy laser cleaning disks (really cheap), or it may be dirty disks. When my sons disks do not read I wipe them over with a little white spirit then dry them gently with a soft cotton cloth.

I hope this helps

My ps2 has just started to run very slow. Whats wrong??

If you mean the games take longer to load then it may be a dirty laser. Try cleaning the laser with a laser cleaning disk, and give your games a wipe over with some white spirit then dry them gently with a soft cotton cloth. You can also try placing your ps2 in the opposite direction it is in now, for example if you have it laying vertically then set horizontal and vice versa.

Also check that you do not have any corrupt data on your memory card/s corrupt data will show as blue squares. Delete all the blue squares to prevent your memory card getting more corrupt

I hope this helps

If it,s only on this actual game, i,d suggest cleaning the disk itself. FF7 was virtually glitch free.
another way to resolve this, is to play the game right up until it crashes-glitches. 10-20 seconds before. go to the nearest save point, and make a save. re-load the game and see if you go past now. The PS2 has a limited video memory.
On ocassions the memory can be overloaded with graphics info,
My Tip-Trick for cleaning the disk.
1:- put the disk into an old CD Jewel Case. ( so that the underside is facing upwards )
carefully inspect the disk for scratches or debris-fingerprints et,c.
put a small amount of washing up liquid into a small bowl, and add luke( hand Warm Water )
using a soft cotton or lint cloth, dip the cloth into the solution, and wring out. cloth should be dampened not soaking or dripping. Wipe the disk from the inner ( centre edge ) outwards.
Step 2:- wipe the disk with a dry clean cloth ( I find the yellow Duster type Cloths Are Ideal ) now breath on the disk, and polish ( buff up ) with a soft clean cloth.
This should now give you a playable games disk.
If you still can,t get it to work, try a laser head cleaner.
Or e-mail me, for my address. send me the faulty disk and i,ll repair it for you.
Hope this sorts you out.
