Well first off, make sure the disk if in PS1 OR PS2 format. That is what the PS2 Is requesting when it says "Please insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk. The Slim PS2 has various problems reading disk.(Don't Know why? I own it and Know it does). The Fat version(1st version) is a much better system, in my opionion. Try blowing air to clean the disk reader. Or changing the disk reader portion out, At a small price.
Format disc is what cleans the lenses, you might have dust on the lens and it can't read the disc. you can go to Wal-mart and buy it for $15, its the one thats for PS, PS2, XBox on the Gaming/electronic side. So everytime that happens again, just pop in the disc and it works again!
if your console is slim-pstwo, you have bad laser & need replacement with new laser. for ps2 chubby You can attempt to adjust it with the little white wheel, but this is not always successful. left for cd format & right for dvd format. hope this help.
Are you using a real game disk or are you using a burned disk? If its burned you need a MOD chip for it. If its real then try to open up the PS2 and try to clean the lens gently with a q-tip. It helped me a couple of times.
I have the same model, What could be going wrong is your Power Callibration for the Laser might be off (Look on Youtube for Repairs on how to fix this) The site is : www.youtube.com Search "PS2 Repairs" :)
