Playstation 2 keeps coming up disc read error? got a new one,was able to play it for a day or so ,and then the same thing happens.


do you mean you got a new game or console? If you got a new game it sounds like your laser is failing. You can google on how to adjust, clean or replace your laser. Some people have success with weighting the discs down with tape on top in an even pattern so balance is not thrown off. do a google search for " ps2 disc read error " it will give you a choice of plenty of tutorials to follow. Good luck =)

Playstation2 DVD read error ''The disc could not be read''


I've encountered similar problem with my PS2. I really can't play the disc that I bought. There might be some burning problem that difficult to read by your PS2. What I did I've tried to copy it and burn in to a better DVD disc and it works. Try it.

Ps2 slimline disc reading error


HI Heytev,

 

Three things. 

  1. The laser could be melted from extended attempts at reading an unreadable disc. If so, You need a new laser.
  2. The Disc is not spinning which could be a motherboard failure. If so, you need a new motherboard
  3. Dust has infiltrated the laser and contaminated the Mirrors or Pickup. If so, you need a new laser.

Ok now that you see the reasons, it is more likely you need a new laser. go to Ebay and buy you one. They are fairly simple to change. Call or email me when you get a New laser.  My information is at www.playstationclinic.com  Hope this helps you.
