1. DVD has lots of scratches 2. Regional Settings 3. Incorrect DVD settings for PS2 4. No/Incorrect Disc
1. Clean your discs well and avoid incurring scratches. Place it in its box after use. 2. DVDs have encoding. They are encoded by regions. Thus, you cannot play region 2 DVDs on a US Playstation mainly because the US Playstation 2 can only read DVD that are encoded in Region 1 or those DVDs that are encoded for all regions. Again, US PS2 are region 1 capable. Japanese PS2s are Region 2 Capable. 3. There are a number of settings for the DVD playback of your PS2. First is the rating of the DVD. If you want to watch a rated R movie, make sure your PS2 allows viewing of R movies. You'll be setting this during the first time that you'll be watching a DVD. It's just the same as real theaters. It is also protected with password so you need the person who set it up the first time in order to bypass the rating settings.
4. Put in a DVD first and make sure that it is a Movie. And, check #2.
This means that the system is encountering a serious error. The laser that reads PS2 and DVD media formats is different to that of the blu-ray laser. If the system was unable to detect the blu-ray media it means that it was faulty and you have to contact Sony supporting your location to have it fixed.
Your PS2 laser is wearing out. When the laser starts to go, first games will skip... then eventually the PS2 will stop reading DVDs altogether. If you keep using it to read CDs, it will eventually stop reading those too and the laser will die altogether. Here's a website that will help you identify your PS2 model, show you how to replace the laser, and they sell parts and do repairs too http://store.richspsxparts.com/slps2direerl.html
The 'Eye' that the PS uses to read DVDs/CDs are different, the one that reads cds has gone bad on yours it seems, so you should still be able to play the games that have the dvd logo, if it is still under warranty I reccommend calling sony.
this could be several issues.
1:) try putting in A DVD Or CD.
2:) Check that the game your trying to read, is free from Dirt/Dust/Scratches.
If the console reads a CD/DVD ( movie et,c ) theres a chance that the Blu-Ray laser unit has failed ( Burnt-Out Or Other )
Check if the Console guide suggests the use of a laser Head Cleaning Disk ( Or Other ) ** Possible debris on laser read head**
If it reads normal CD/DVDs. Then I,d suspect the blu-ray laser is at fault. This will need to be replaced/repaired or calibrated.
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" :)
