Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Sounds like a dirty or bad laser. Try cleaning the current laser with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. Be very gentle! If it still won't read after a good cleaning you may need to look into replacing the laser itself. Try different types and colors of discs. If some discs will read - particularly PS1 discs of a particular color or audio CD's, it can be a good indication of a weakening laser. Some people claim to be able to squeeze more life out of increasing the laser's output, but that's like putting a bandaid on a severed limb. A weakened laser won't last long in a higher stress setting and the process is too much work to last such a short time. It's best to put the extra effort in and replace the entire laser. Good luck.
