The unit needs to be cleaned out very good. Any dust build up at all and restrick the air flow and parts will start failing. If cleaning the unit and the laser doesn't work you need a new laser. $50 on eBay for a do it yourself job. But I recommend calling Sony. This is a common problem that they may fix for free. Hope this helps.

I installed a replacement slim ps2 lens but now my console won't read my discs?


Remove the blob of solder so the area in the red circle looks like this, or the laser will not engage.

I bought a used PS 2. I get to the browser screen but it's not reading the game I put in.


Try other games and music cd's. If the ps2 isn't reading any discs you put in, then the laser is bad and would need to be replaced. Look on Ebay for a ps2 laser for thru google shopping.

Reads my dvds and cd's but not ps3 discs


The optical lens in your blu ray drive is going out. It needs more to play games then to watch movies and cd's. This is a very common problem with the ps3. If you want to replace it yourself, you can find many replacements for your len on eBay and you can always google a decent tutorial for step by step instructions on how to replace it. If you need any help, just ask :)
