Reading disk error!

There is no spining in my PS2. I cleaned the laser eye two times with alchohol. The lens location has back and forth but there is no spining for the disk. Could you please let me know what I should do. Thanks. Mahyar

Doesnt do anything


Try blowing on the little disk reader first, then try wiping the disk reader with a clean cotton shirt. Put the disk in, and listen if the disk spins, if it doesn't it can be one of 2 things.
-if disk doesn't spin
1) the sensor that sensors whether the latch is open(check youtube for bypass)
2)the spin motor is broke (throw out the ps2, and get a new 1)

My PS2 will play DVD, But I get disk read error when I try to play a game. I have already took it apart and cleaned the lens, and also adjusted the lens wheel.


well it´s time to change the laser lens...you can force adjusting the dvd laser focus in the micro pot located under the ps2 lens...but it´s better to buy a new lens unit..

Have you cleaned the laser? Try that first and if that dosen't help then your laser might be dead.

Disc read error


Hmmmm, Then poissibly the motor might have a need for servicing. Because by the sounds of it, the motor isnt moving quite right inside the system. I ran into this problem with my PS1 and PS2's that i have had over the years. Motors can wear out over time and use. If your like my friends, they go through a new PS2 in a year flat, because it is used 20 to 22 horus a day by 3 different people. So yeah, they use theirs very well.

Back to subject. Anyways, if the motor is not actually doing much but clicking, it sounds like there is an Obstruction in the way of the spin. Meaning, its not getting its complete rotation every whatever amount, so it will not read the disc. The motor also has to be able to move back and forth to read the disc as you play it and if that motor goes, than you rarely can play a game all the way through.

There are usually a number of computer stores (small time) that offer repair services for a price. They can usually order the small parts and Sony lets them install those replacement parts, because like all big companies, it takes a lot longer to get things done because everyone goes there first.

When searching for a store that can help, be specific in questioning. You need to ask directly if they have any employee's who know how to service PS2's

PS2 not reading disks


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

PS 2 says no disk tried to put alternate disks but problem still persist


Your Laser is not seeing the Disc. Several reasons could be as follows:
  • Dirty lens on the laser
  • Bad ribbon cable not supplying power or reading the Laser.
  • Major misalignment of the laser
  • Motherboard Laser Driver IC burned up.
Alrighty then, you probably see now that when you get a no disc error, the fault is 99% related to the laser.

You have to clean it up and get all the dust out. Do not use alcohol on the Slim PS2 Laser. Use a q-tip dampened with rubbing alcohol to clean the lens. Dry the lens before you try it..
