I own a ps2 slimline, but it seems to scratch my discs, it is on and off, nbut it can wreack some of my disks, i haven't opened it up,but i.ve cleaned inside the disk tray. What do i do?


Buy a dvd or cd cleaner disk and run it in your playstation console. You can purchase them at places like Walmart and they cost about five dollars (American). If your console is scratching disks, then it probably needs to be cleaned. Try wiping your disks with a lint free cloth and make sure that they are clean and not scratched before playing them. Clean your unit with a disk cleaner (run it through a couple of times and use the liquid that comes with it) and that should solve your problem.

My playstation wont read any of my gaming disks i


Hi there,
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards

PS2 won't read disk sometimes


I've helped someone else with a similar problem here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t1300166-playstation_2_console_keeps_freezing

It's not enough to use a disk to clean the laser lens. You have to take the PS2 apart and clean the lens manually. Nicotine, Incense, diffusers, and other smokes and just time itself clouds the lens. Not only that but the part that the disk sits and spins on needs to be cleaned over time as well to assure the disk is in proper alignment and Is not just kinda spinning on the spindle.

In that link i posted above you be led to directions on how to take apart your PS2 and what parts to clean. The instructions I have posted in that tutorial is for the (FAT) PS2 model not SLIMLINE. If you have a slimline model you don't have to take apart anything just open your cover and clean the parts in the video.

Hope that helps,

Dispaly cannot read disk


DONT FORGET TO RATE SOLUTION

1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

2. IF THE LASER CLEANING DON'T WORK ON YOUR PS2 SYSTEM PERFORMANCE THEN TRY ADJUSTING THE LASER VOTAGE.

3. IF THE LASER VOTAGE DON'T WORK YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE LASER

My ps2 slimline wont read disks


Check if there is anything lodged inside where you close the front. or run a disk cleaning sequence with the Maxell or Radioshack(<---- works the best) disk cleaner. Run it three times. Plus you don't have to watch or listen when it is playing, just in the beginning.

Slimline PS2 only plays PS1 Games and not PS2


Clean the LAsers Lens with Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass cleaner, then dry the lens. Try it see if that gets it going again.

If not your lasers lens and supporting frame is probably melting down. You will need a new laser.
Click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" Pick a good repair shop.
