First try a different cd, then try cleaning the one that won't read. If that doesn't get it then you have the usual problem with the drive failing and all you can do is replace it. You can get the drives from several after market sources. These are much cheaper and are the same drives.
This is a common enough problem that if you have a gaming store or even a retail store they will be able to tell you where/how to get it fixed. Just keep an eye on the cost as sometimes you may actually save money buy getting into a PS3.

How to fix your ps2 when the cd is not roming


Do you mean that the disc is being read? If so then you probably need to replace your PS2 Slim. It would be cheaper to replace it than the replace the cd tray.

Playstation 2 slim console, doesn't spin so it doesn't read discs


Hello,

The following could be the problem;

1. It could be that you inserted a wrong format of the CD.E.g Inserting a PAL cd into an NTSC console.

2.The CD is jammed and may need to be re-booted.

3. The CD you are inserting is a bad disc.

Best regards

Ps2 keeps saying disk read error everytime disk is put in no matter what disk is put in what can i do to fix


  • Confirm the disc is inserted correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
  • Confirm the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
  • Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. We do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products[1].

My children's playstation did the same thing. I'm not sure if you have the slimline model or not however, I went into the Sony Playstation website under their troubleshooting section:

Take Disc Out
Restart System
In the Menu Press Triangle for the Version Info Screen
Highlight Console option and press triangle
Press x and highlight on press x again
Press o 2 times to go back into the main menu
Insert Disc
Close Tray (DO NOT RESET SYSTEM)
Highlight Browser
Press X to Read Disc

This did work for me but I did have to do it twice.

I hope this helps you
