Playstation2 will not play black discs


Are there any visible scratches on the black discs? If so i would recommend getting them resurfaced at your local game store.
If there is no damage to the disk then it is more likely than not down to the PS2 laser, as they get older they struggle to read more and more until they will only read perfect white disks or nothing at all. Give the laser a good clean with some solvent, being careful not to scratch it.

My ps2 driver opens and closes. it doesnt read disk. how can i make it work normal again?


Open the ps2 and clean it. If still opens, take the main plug off while its open, put the disc in it, re plug it in and voila

The PS2 of our son does not read some disks, it then switches to system menu. Other games are no problem. Disks are not scratched


The reason for not reading the PS2 certain games is that your lens of PS2 is covered with dirt or dust,all you have to do is to clean it.Watch this video this will show you how to clean your PS2 lens.

Ps2 not able to read disk


Hi this is the commonist fault on all ps2 and even ps3 their is no way of repairing the laser itself the only option you have is to replace the laser unit the problem with doing this is that if you buy a new laser you will need to get it calibrated and to do this you will need oscilscope and these cost about £300 or if in us about $600 so thats the problem of buying new ones its often cheaper to buy new ps2 than go down that route.
The other option is buying second hand ps2 of an auction site but the problem with this also is that it might have same problem as yours.
What i did that made mine work for few months extra was to use ask.com and type in :Disk read error on ps2
or try this How to repair ps2 disk error or just try repairing ps2
On doing this i came across a site but i cant remember what it was called but this site showed you step by step instruction on how to adjust the laser slightly so that it played games again after following these instructions mine worked again for about three months.
It basically told you to remove the case off the ps2 then where the laser is its like a black plate but you cant see the laser remove this black case i think their was about two little black screw on the top of the black lid covering the laser it covers the disk so you cant see the disk with case removed.
Anyway remove this black lid then if you look at the back of the laser tray not at front where the game goes in but towards the back their is a white disk about the size of a coin now this site told me to first mark with marker the white disk so you know where you started from put line on the white disk then on something else but not the disk so you know where it was located before you turn it doing this lets you go back to how it was before you moved it.
After doing this if you turn the disk slightly it raises and lowers the laser lense now you need to do this a bit at a time and then but the black lid back on with screws then try a game in it you can hold the black lid ontop of the laser unit if you want but dont push to hard and dont hold it to soft else game wont spin properly.
Just turn this white disk a bit at a time then try loading a game keep doing this you can turn it either way if your lucky you might find that adjusting the laser hight might get it working again if not then the laser needs replacing but remember if it dont work then you need to turn the whit disk back to where it started from ie where you marked because if you replace the laser this white disk needs to be back where it was originally.
If you are going to do this search the net first you should find the complete instructions on doing this ok also make sure you dont shine the laser in your eyes or other peoples eyes as its dangerous and can blind you in the future so make sure the case is on the laser before its switched on.
If you cant find the site let me know and ill have a look for you ok also let me know if you need further assistance

PS2 wont load PS2 games


you need to get a laser disk which cleans the inside of the ps2 especially for ps2 games and if that doesnt work then you need to get someone to undo all the case and clean it themselves hope that helps :)
