Playstation not reading any of my disks.


Playstations are not my forte, but judging by the symptoms, it looks like that drop either destroyed the disc drive, or damaged the connection between the disc drive and the motherboard.

If you feel confident, you can try disassembling the unit , and trying to diagnose the problem (check all leads, look for broken solder joints) and remedy it.

If you don't want to, or can't disassemble - Your best bet is a replacement unit or a professional repair.

Ps2 not reading disc.


First you need to define what it IS and IS NOT reading. You'll need to run some tests.

Test 1: use a regular music CD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and put that into your ps2 and see if it starts playing it.

Test 2: insert a regular DVD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and try to play that.

If neither will play then it is one of two things. Your laser lens is out of alignment, or your laser lens is damaged.

If one plays but not the other, it is the potentiometer pots on the back of the PS2 lens that need adjusting. You can read more about that on one of my other posts ::.HERE.::

Ps2


all right kiwi you need to run a cleaner disk it means the ones that you use to clean cd players with its problably the laser eye its dirty and its not reading the information on the format disk if that doesn't work wen you turn on your console go to
browser instead of hitting the x button hit the tryangle that will take you to system vertion Information go to playstation driver
press tryangle that will take to disk speed and texture mapping
set them to standard. and if cleaning the laser eye and setting drivers don't work buddy I don't know what to tell you sometimes it pays to open your console and clean it inside once and a wile.

PS2 Won't read disc at all....


it might be that ur lens is just dirty and might need cleaning the best way to do that is to take the top cover off ur ps2 be carefull not to rip or tare the cable for the power/open-close buttons take the top off the disk tray get a q-tip and clean the lens that always works for me and if u dont wanna take ur ps2 apart u can always take it to a service center

PS2 "Slimline" Can not read disk?


the problem I had is my ps2 slimline wouldn't play ps2 games. so I went on line and followed instruction took it all apart cleaned everything nothing. put it back together, for some reason I openned the ps2 where the disk goes there you can see the eye, I took a small flat heat screw driver the ones you use to fix eye glasses, and put it under the eye assembly and so gentle pushed it up. now it works perfect. not to hard you don't want to break it, I didn't even see it move. Hope this helps
