Sounds like you need to adjust the head (or at least clean them)

be careful not to disconnect the cables that are between the top and bottom of the console as you have to take all the boards apart to reconect them

Disk read error


Hello,

The reason your play station 2 keeps reading disc error is either because the lens is weak, dirty, or the disk is not compatible with the console.

You can try to use a lens cleaner to clean the lens or totally replace the lens with a new one.

You can also try other disc to see if its the same thing it will show.

Take care

Play station 3 is not reading yny disk


Hi....Does it read others ok?

If so,try using a CD/DVD polisher on the YNY disk

If the disk is new you most likely have a faulty disk

Hello We purchased the Play station 2 game Heroes of Might and Magic (Quest for the Dragon Bone Staff). The back, of the game cd is blue. When we put it in the play station 2 we get the message disk...


If other games work fine on it, then the problem is with the game. If it is new, I would try to exchange it. If it is a used game, I have found that some of the used game stores can buff/resurface the disk for a small fee. The place I use charges $3.00 per disk. They can fix computer games and DVDs and all kinds of games.

Won't play silver disk


Even though I can't go into it on this post due to the nature of the beast so to speak but your problem is the potentiometer pot on the back of the PS2 laser lens (The one dealing with DVD adjustment). This is a common problem due to either one of two things. 1.) alot of movement of your PS2 (ie taking it to a friends house, car rides, shaking, dropping, etc etc etc.) or 2.) A lot of usage.

In either case what is happening is the potentiometer on the back of the lens has moved out of correct alignment.

In english? Your laser lens's laser beam is not producing enough energy to read the disk correctly.

So it has to be reset back to its factory position. Check this site it will help you out.

Disk wont spin


First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
