I'd say it's going to be complicated for you to replace it yourself but the laser that i bought for my old ps2 was only about $30. You can search the net&see what kind of laser you need! Your laser is weak&old but replacing it will take time.

When I put in a game the ps2 does not play. It only shows a scree that lists browser


Not 100% sure, but back when I worked for a Sony reseller this was most commonly caused by a faulty lazer (you'd be amazed at how often this happens). Lazers in general do not have an infinite lifespan, but video game consoles are natorious for this problem.

Presuming your PS2 is outside of its warranty, you can pick up a replacement lazer online from somewhere like eBay or some asian electronics websites for around $20-$30. It's relatively easy to replace yourself or an any electrician who works on dvd players etc will have no difficulty installing it.

The other common cause for this is scratched disks. Either way, it sounds like your machine is not able to read any information from the disk.

Your lazer could have died, also try Adjusting the lazer might help, theres a little white thingy under your lazer this adjusts the postition of your lazer, keep adjusting it till it works if it dose not work at all on every setting buy a replacement drive for your ps2 ^-^

Won't load or play disc or dvd


It's a well known fact PS2's had a cheap lazer fitted to them, that's why when it gets chiped to play copy games, not long after it starts playing up. The lazer may just need aligning, purchase a cd/dvd cleaning cd rom as these can check audio, lazer alignment and clean the lens.
