In this case the optical unit (laser) is malfunctioning. Please check the type of optical and provide a replacement in order to repair the unit. If you need more info please advice.

My ps2 slim cannot read the ps2 cd game after I'm use it to play a movie dvd.. but it still can play dvd at all..assist me please....

Your laser is probably on its way out -- as a laser starts to fail, it will first stop reading PS2 games (but will read some DVD movies OK). It will then stop reading DVD movies and only play CDs. Finally, it will not read anything at all. You can find a new laser, based on your PS2's model number, at the following website:

It's likely the DVD laser behind the lens is faulty, this would allow it to only play PS1 games. You can try contacting sony as they do both warranty and non warranty repairs.

us.playstation.com <---- contact info

Hope this helps.

Is yours an original Playstation or a Slim?

Likely your lens is just dirty. Ars put up a great tutorial for this repair (I advise you not to play with the lens-adjustment section unless a mere cleaning doesn't work) here:

http://arstechnica.com/articles/paedia/hardware/ps2.ars/1

If it's a Slim, skip the "opening" stuff and just follow the instructions for cleaning the lens, it's already exposed when you open the top of the unit.
