You need to get it replaced or fixed - take it back to wherever you bought it with a reciept and they should either replace it or get it fixed. If you replace it, you might want to copy your saved games onto a USB device.

Alternatively, you can phone Sony (the number should be on their site somewhere, use Google) and they should help you get it fixed/replaced directly through them.

    As far as I am aware, both options are free.

    Having the retailer replace it is definately free.

Ps2 is not reading disc


Steps to Try:-
1) ensure the disks underside is clean of Fingerprints/Scratches et,c.
2) Clean the laser head, with a cd/dvd disk cleaner.
3) Try different types of Software/Media i.e CD/DVD et,c. this will determine the lasers strength, or whether it,s completely worn out.
4) Finally try different types of Game, Most PS2s play silver underside disks ( Platinum ) And Black ( Dark DVDs )

Hope this helps, guide you.

My Dvds work but not games

Games consoles have 2 individual lasers, or 1 laser that adjusts it,s power higher/lower for different types of media.
The PS2 laser, can be very slightly out of alignment also, which will cause it, to read some disks, and not others.
Try a different game, or music cd.

Ps2 will work

your ps2 isn't reading cause your drive is dying. you can get a lil more out of it by opening the ps2 up, (void your warranty if you have one you will yess....) after flipping the top part of the cover to the side (careful the power and reset button have a cable still connected) you will want to remove the screws on the dvd rom, 4 lil tiny screws. then remove the cover. you will see the lens and behind that a White GEAr about the size of quarter. mark the teeth that meet the metal clip on the left hand side of it with a marker. then twist the gear clockwise slowly (click click click click) then you will hear a sound and the laser will drop down. now do 2 to four clicks clockwise and then put the thin cover back on the ps2 and boot it up and try a game out. (please place cover back over dvd rom area for the dvd's fly off and then the laser will melt a hole in your brain.) its' basically readjusting the laser to read the cds. the blue ones are hard really hard to get it to ready but silvers and ps1 are easiest. so if it dosen't read the dvd or cd shut off the system take the thin cover back off and do 2 to 4 more clicks clockwise and repeat until the cd reads.

The PS2 console is giving message that disc cannot be read or sometimes no disc.

Try a dvd lens cleaner because it sounds like the lens may be dirty. Make sure to use a DVD lens cleaner not a CD lens cleaner. If that doesnt work you will probably have to get the lens replaced which since its sony and they've been around for years it should be rather cheap. Hope that helps you out!

Slimline PS2 decides wich games it likes

The only Idea I have is that your Laser lens may be melting. This would explain the eratic behavior you describe. I have found that in the progression of the meltdown, the Laser hates reading silver backed discs at first. Then it will progress to not reading DVD's at all. Then nothing.

You need to look at your lens up close with a Magnifying glass. To do this you must take the console apart. you will need a new laser if you find that melting of the lens and or its support frame are melted.

PS2 slim

the laser is dirty or damaged. Try swabbing the lens with rubbing alcohol and immediately drying with canned air. if that doesn't work, a repair shop can do a more in depth cleaning, but there is the chance that the DVD portion may never work again. I do this repair about 5 times a day...
