Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console Logo
Eloise Cepeda Posted on Jul 19, 2007

I have a problem

Ive got a playstation 2 slimline console, every PS2 game an error would state that unable to read disc or that I need to insert a Playstation Station 2 game (which I already did of course). So I tried to play a CD or a DVD and it works perfectly fine. Please let me know how I can fix this and if you are able to let me know the reason for it not working properly. I am also not sure if changing anything on the version of the browser or changing the system configuration may cause this to not work properly. Thanks for your assistance, Eloise

It is probably because you need to clean the lens or have it adjusted. Hopefully it just needs a cleaning. Just be careful because when you open a slim there is a connection that if you pull it wrong or too hard, you can snap the connection and ruin your playstation. If you can open it, then I suggest that you get a qutip dab a bit of rubbing alcohol on it and clean the lens. connie

Fake cds

In order to play copied games, you will first have to mod your PS2. To avoid piracy, much of the necessary info on the original disc will be omitted during the copy phase. When you "mod" or put in a new chip, The PS2 can now bi-pass this info and continue to the game. Regardless of the type of PS2 you have, you must put in a mod chip to read back-ups.

Playstation 2

IF THE DISC IS NOT BEING READ THEN THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE LENS INSIDE THE PS2. IF IT IS BEING REA THEN TRY OPENING THE PS2 TAKE OF THE TOP. LOCATE THE TRAY COVER AND THERE IS A WHITE OBJECT IN THE MIDDLE, TRY SPINING IT. IF IT DOSEN'T MOVE THEN PLAY WITH IT UNTIL ITS LOOSE. ThEN TRY PLUGIN BACK THE PS2 AND INSERTING A GAME (DO NOT PUT THE TOP BACK ON) INSERT THE GAME AND SEE IF THE WHITE OBJECT IS TURNING WHEN THE DISC IS READING..
IF IT IS THEN THE DISC IS SPIINNING,
HOPE IT WORKS FOR U.

Ps2

This is because the initial read zone on the PS2 is now needed to get the PS1 game past the boot stage. I've seen this done and it's simliar to a hot-swap disc. The only solution is really a new PS2, but good luck in continuing this little "cheat" on the error: it should work indefinitely
