Re: ps2 disk read error - please help
It sounds like a timing issue,,,at the front of the cd underneath is a cam and a bar with teeth, gently push or pull the bar so it advances to the maximum position, then make sure the cd drawer is closed and plug the unit in to test.....afterward reassemble the unit , also do not look into laser beam, blindness will occur...

Theres a wheel in the disc drive that controls the elevation of the lens. To mod your ps2 to read burnt ps2 games ONE would alter the height of the lens by adjusting the wheel ever so slightly. There are online tutorials in the precise adjustments for different disks. (one height reads only ps1 games, another height reads ps1 and ps2 games, and one more height reads ps1/ps2 and burnt ps1/ps2 games) Your best bet would probably be to just purchase another ps2 used, but if you want to do it yourself, you can.
sounds like your laser is failing. You can find tutorials on how to adjust, clean or replace your laser. Do a google search for " ps2 disc read error " it will give you a choice of plenty of tutorials to follow. Good luck
This is a problem with the laser that reads th disks. these lasers have two adjustments on the bottom of them, one for CDs (PS1 games) and one for DVD (PS2 games). It is sometimes possible to adjust the DVD side and get it to work (there are many tutorials on the web on how to do this), but unfortunatly this is a temporary fix. The only real fix is to buy another laser. They are also very abundant on the web (ebay is a great source for them too!). They are very reasonably priced now. Either way the unit will have to be disassembled. Hope this helps you out...
You will ne4ed to clean up the PS2. open it up and clean the laser lens with alcohol on a cotton swab. If it is the Slim Ps2 model you should not use Alcohol. Use A glass Cleaner like windex on the slim. Sometimes the magnet gets week and you need to add some magnetism to help improve the spindle grip on the Game disc. Cut up a refridgerator magnet and place it in the white cap thatt clamps the Game disc in the cd player.
the optic needs to be replaced ,the part cost its around 45.00 but you need to provide model,serial# and manufactured date . or you can sen the unit for a repair around 120.00.
let me know if you need more info
To fix this problem, you will need to open your PS2 and re-adjust its lens. To open your PS2, first turn it upside down. Remove the 4 rubber feet and 6 square tabs (circled in the picture) by sliding a flat screwdriver (or something similar) underneath them.
