Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Hmm.....Maybe you got the lenses inside that console dirty.... If you haven't touch anything in the area that the PS2 game CD covers, then are you sure that the plugs are tightly plug in?....If they are, maybe they are TOO tight. Wiggle them around but not too much.....Also, are sure that the game has no stracthes on the back of it? If it's only that game messing up, then thats probably the case.....Alot of time, putting the game in will scratch the back. If this happens, you can either "clean" it with toothpaste or yellow wax. Yellow wax is better. I believe yellow wax can be purchased somewhere like Wal-Mart. If you rub it from the center then out and make sure it's all off then it will play farely ok....But before you resort to that, look around the middle of the game CD [aka the clear part in the little circle (for people slow like me^_^)].......Hold it up to a light and see if that the clear part is cracked. If it is, DO NOT PUT IT IN THE CONSOLE!.....Good consoles will pick that kind of thing up and refuse to play it and say "Unreadable Disk"...or something....If the clear center is cracked, then the clear center may start to crack even more and pieces may break off and get down into the console. If that happens, you'll have to end up buying a new console when you could have just replaced the game. Alot of times when the center is crack, it is caused by not pressing the plastics holding peices in the middle of the case. By lifting the game up without pressing that down, cause cause IMMENSE strain on the disk and cause it to break.....Well, I hope I was of some assitence....And please pardon any grammatical errors. Later........-Jade

9 out of 10 times when the fat ps2 cant/wont read disk its the cd tray needs to be adjusted.
I would suggest opening up the ps2 and cleaning the console with Qtips and rubing alcohol. if the laser will wont read. go to youtube.com type in fix my ps2 laser. you will watch a video on how to adjust your cd tray.
The reason for this issue is if the laser is to close or to far from the cd the laser cant read the cd.
the worse problem u can come across is the laser 100% failed. which is rare but you can buy a new/used working laser on ebay.com or google it. the laser will have the model on it you want to make sure you get the correct model. otherwise it wont work.
