    put in my disc and will play for about half an hour, then it freezes. but I have no problem watching DVD's. Console is only 8 months old. If I clean the system with a good kit will that help or cause even further problems? HELP...I cannot afford a new system!

Cant read disc


Hi,

Follow these steps when you are facing "disc wont read" problem
Step 1: Remove the disc from the system.


Step 2: Use a cloth to clean in small circles around the disc (not in a big circle going around the disc). Use DVD or CD disc cleaner if available. If you use cleaner, use a different dry cloth to clean the disc no more than three minutes after application.


Step 3: Verify that there are no disc-destroying marks on the disc. Deep scratches and chips in the middle of the disc can render a disc inoperable. As your Playstation 3 is used more and more, the lens that reads Blue-ray discs can become dirty. This will lead to discs skipping or not being read by the console. If you find this is happening on your Blue-ray discs, either movies or games, you may need to have your console cleaned. Be careful when attempting any sort of cleaning of your console, as improper handling will further damage the Playstation 3. Contact a member of Playstation Support for information on console maintenance.

Thank you !!

Disk read error


The 'Disc Read Error' error message, 'Please Insert a Playstation 2 Formatted Disc' error message, or the 'No Data' error message is an indicator by your system that the console is having difficulty reading the game disc. This could be for many reasons; usually this is because the game disc is damaged or unreadable. However, in some situations, this can be a sign of a more serious issue with your Sony PlayStation 2. Try all of the steps listed below to troubleshoot the error:

Check the game disc.

1. If there are any noticeable scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try to clean them off by using a non-abrasive cotton cloth.
Note: Do not rub hard and do not rub in a circular motion as this could further damage the game disc.
2. If there aren’t any noticeable scratches or smudges on the surface of the game disc, try using that game disc in another PlayStation 2.

* If the game disc works in another system, this is an indicator that your PlayStation 2 may be damaged. For information on getting your system repaired or replaced, you will want to contact Sony directly for assistance at 1-800-345-SONY.
* If the game disc does not work in another system, this is a good indicator that the disc is damaged or defective. To acquire a replacement game disc, you will want to refer to your manual for warranty information specific to your product.

Some Playstation systems, especially the older models, have trouble reading some newly manufactured Playstation 2 game disks. Sony recommends using their Auto Diagnosis tool (http://www.us.playstation.com/support/ps2/hardwaresystem/default.html) to resolve this issue.

That means it can read some of the disc but not all. Are the discs clean? If so the bluray laser is dying. You will need to spend about $70 for a new laser or $150 to get a new unit from Sony.

Disc read error!


1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

2. IF THE LASER CLEANING DON'T WORK ON YOUR PS2 SYSTEM PERFORMANCE THEN TRY ADJUSTING THE LASER VOTAGE.

3. IF THE LASER VOTAGE DON'T WORK YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE LASER

My set of 3 games will not work, disc read error


I had the same problem with a pinball game I brought. If you have one of the old playstation 2's and these games you have a blue-back on them I noticed after so long they stop playing games with blue-back discs. All other games with out these blue-back discs will play just fine but if you have a new playstation 2 and these games are not playing on there then u need to call playstation and tell them the problem you are having and see what they tell you. Let me know if this helps you Good Luck!

I would be careful about cleaning your lens because Sony has been known to void any warranty you have when cleaning because of not using "sony products". I to have the same problem but mine came up disc read error only after a month and i cant play anything either? even thoguh I dont have a solution I just offer a warning about cleaning it.
