Is there a memory card installed? If so, try removing it to see if the game will play without the card. You may have a corrupted save file for that game.

SOURCE: my ps2 wont read discs
i can only think of two things with that problem. one your lens might be scratched or the laser unit is no good. you can replace that part by removing it from an older unit or going on ebay buy it from them unit model SONY PS2 SPU3170 Laser 3170 Lens. this will solve your problem fast.

This is a problem that has too many IF's in it lol. Let's take it from the top shall we?
When you said that you owned other PS2's were they the thick ones or the slim ones. Swap magic works best in the "thick older" models. In these new slimline ones it's got issues. That model number you posted belongs to a slimline model.
So since you're using a slimline model, I have to ask, Have you blocked the 2 sensors that you need to block in order to use swap magic. The slimline models are not like the older thick models. You need to block two sensors under the flip top so when you open the flip top the PS2 still thinks there is no swapping going on. If you have not blocked these sensors head over to youtube.com and start watchin vids with seach "how to block slim PS2 sensors" or "how to block slimline PS2 sensors" out of the three sensors you only really need to block two. If you have not done this at all, that is reason why it's not working. On older PS2 models you used a slidecard or some form of a flip top to swap out your disks. Nothing has changed on these slimline models. The PS2 still needs to be tricked out so it doesn't think you're swapping disks in and outa the system.
Hope that helps,

Sounds like you need to get your money back ..the resurfaceing can also do more bad than good
But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way
