If you're getting a Disc Read Error, you may need to clean the disc. Inspect it for scratches. Is it the only PSX game that won't work? If all your PSX games won't read, you should clean the lens of your PS2, although the read errors are a sign of lens damage.
If no PS3 games work. Try using a cleaning disk. A CD with brushes on it, electronics dept at walmart. If that does not work you should call Sony. The ps2 had problems with being able to read cds and psx games but not dvds and ps2 games.
sounds like you need to adjust your lens is all you need to do. there is lots of howto guides on this online if you would like I can dig it up for you. because ushally if one works but not the other then the lazer just has come out of alignment
Blocking the sensors did you in I'm afraid. What has happened is the *DVD* read mechanism has gotten goofed because of this, but the *CD* read mechanism is still ok. Maximo and a few other PS2 games were actually on CD, not DVD. If you look on the back cover, you will see the Compact Disc logo (in the lower right area on the box for Maximo). These games have a blue bottom disc instead of the silver bottom.
You can attempt to re-align the laser which is a fairly lengthy process and there are numerous guides out there to do this. Here is one: http://arstechnica.com/articles/paedia/hardware/ps2.ars
Note that this guide is for the larger model but the concept of lens adjustment is still the same and a quick google search will provide more in-depth detail. Since you have already opened your system, this may be an option for you. If the PS2 was purchased new as you said, it might not be the worst idea to exchange it for a new model as the lens going out this soon might be an indication that the unit wouldn't have lasted that long to begin with.
Also just a friendly reminder that opening your PS2 voids your warranty and double check the return policies of where you bought the system.
