Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Ok i have the slim Ps2 and yesterday it got unplugged while it was on............ when i returned later that day I tried playing Gran Turismo 4 which was in it when it got unplugged can't be played. All it says is reading disc for a long time, but when i tried NBA 2K7 it works fine. what seems to be the problem?
Yeah, i have the same problem with GT4, and i tried taking out the memory card, still clicks and the disk never spins. I even have guitar hero 2 and that works no prob.

Try starting the game without the memory card in if it works then you know it was a memory card problem if not then disregard and buy a new ps2 lol

What may have happened is that the saved files for GT4 on your memory card have now become corrupt, and the disk when put in the suysstem is trying to read the data from the card, simply deleting your saved GT4 data from the memory card should allow the disk to play as normal.

Tips for a great answer:
The Game your playing is probably a Blue colored media. That is ones that spin so fast. You console has become dusty and loaded with lint probably. You can open the case and clean up the insides. Also while your in there, remove the ocver and polish up the lasers lens. This will probably get you back in business. If you do nto have success, contact me at [email protected] playstationclinic.com I run The Playstation Clinic at www.playstationclinic.com If you have a Slim Model it will cost more than the big model to repair. The slim model is $41 full refurbish including return shipping inside the USA. The big Fat PS2 Versions are $36 including return shipping.
First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.
There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
