Do u no what the ring means?
it means the laser is faulty and when it reads the disc it using like a real bright light
if the light is to bright the laser is playing up it will actually burn into the disc
thats why its bad to look at the laser
i would get the laser replaced

SOURCE: my ps2 slim is leaving rings on my games???????

I think the motor spindle is damaged , as the motor spindle holds the disc up or it could the lens assembly being misaligned which causes the lens to be angled and scratch the disc

i recommend you to look at the site http://www.forums.gamewinners.com/forums/showthread.php?t=513070#Basic%20servicing for servicing if possible (slimline is somewhere at the bottom)

You're stuck not being able to play, you need to get the slim PS2's because they reconverted the discs for a new disc encoding.

PS2 OR PS2 SLIM


ps2 can play dvds but xbox needs a store bought xbox dvd remote to play dvds
the ps2 slim and the ps2 normal have a lot in common so thwere is not much difference, but the slim has a fliptop lid and the fat ps2 has a open and shut slide drive.If I were you I would get the slim because it is the only one you can get brand new nowadays. The xbox may have halo 1 and 2 but sometimes there are freezes on certain xboxes.

DVDS


Hi pr princess, You have a dirty laser lens. Possibly other dust problems and hair and or lint. Your PS2 is dirty. If you have technical savvy, you can disassemble the PS2 and clean everything thoroughly. If you do not want to take on this tedious job, I can help you. Check out my website www.playstationclinic.com. I will thoroughly detail your PS2, and clean the lens, plus test it with every kind of media it is supposed to run. I will give you a deal of $20 plus shipping. If you have slim model, the Slim could need a new laser since sony cut back on how hefty the laser is constructed. A new laser will run the cost of repair up $12. So $32 plus shipping. Total turn around is less than 10 days.

My PS2 Slim plays music, black and blue discs, but doesn't play silver discs nor DVDs.


Is this a new problem or has your PS2 always had this issue? You cannot adjust the laser at all and are likely to damage it if you try, you can however clean the laser lens with a CD/DVD cleaning disk and you'd be surprised how often this resolves disk read issues. Some of these units did have a production fault that prevented them from reading DVD's, if your PS2 has had this fault since new and/or is under 12 months old you could probably have had it repaired/replaced by Sony but by opening it you will have invalidated you're warranty.
