It seems you may need a new laser, as it isn't reading the disc.
!!WARNING: DO NOT TAKE IT APART YOURSELF, AS I HAVE RUINED MY PREVIOUS PS2 THIS WAY. I HAD TO BUY A COMPLETELY NEW ONE AND THROW THE OLD ONE AWAY. WITHOUT A CERTAIN PART IT IS USELESS.!!

The disc spins but doesn't show anything. It goes straight to the browser and system configuration screen. It acts like there's no disc in it.

Not recognizing disk


My PS2 always does that now. Just make sure it's reading the disc in the System Browser, and it'll play fine.

Browser shows no data on PlayStation 2 Console


I am having the same problem with my PS2, but I have an HDD inside of mine. I am told this is a circuit problem inside the PS2 that doesn't allow the information to be transfered to the RAM. That's why you see “No Data” instead of the usual problem of “Disc Read Error”. I hate to say it, but it sounds like you are going to have to do the same thing I am about to do. Send it in to Sony and get it repaired.

I am also pretty sure this PS2 you are talking about is the large fat one, and not the slim one.

Disc read error


Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.

can you go into the browser ?
can you view your mem card?
You can try the auto-diagnosis. heres how
Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system) 1. Turn on the system without a disc inside. 2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen. 3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again. 4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more. 5. Now press the circle button twice to return to the Main Menu. 6. Press the eject button on the front of the console, and insert a disc. 7. Now close the disc tray, but DO NOT reset the system. 8. Highlight the Browser option from the Main Menu, and then press the X button. 9. In the Browser, an icon of the disc should appear on the screen. Highlight this icon, and then press the X button to read the disc. 10. If the auto-diagnosis is successful, the disc should load properly at this point. NOTE: The auto-diagnosis feature will return to "Off" the next time a disc is inserted.
or try cleaning the lens and games

Disc read error


After you open up your PS2 slimline. There is a silver track or bar that the laser moves up and down. I fixed our disc read error problem by lossening up both screws slightly. It took me a couple of adjustments before I completely solved the problem, but now it works like a charm. You can maually test it to see how smooth it runs down the track after your adjustment. Good luck.
