Playstation2.... got a new game and ever since I 1st played it, it just tells me "Disc read error" (Tryed the tape thing... But didn't work)
Well... I got a new game (pre-owned) played it once but it froze, so I restarted it and it worked fine after that but then after turning it off for a short while it did not load up...Just said "Disc read error"
I have tryed the tape thing... But made no difference. will get a lenze cleaner but just woundering if there is any thing I can do with out it costing me any thing?

THE EASYIEST WAY IS TO OPEN YOUR PS2 BE CAREFULL NOT TO CUT OR PIERCE THE POWER RIBBON WHEN YOUR TOP IS OFF THE PS2 UNSCREW THE 4 SMALL SCREWS IF A V9 OR V10 PS2 THERE IS ONLY 2 SCREWS TURN ON THE PS2 OPEN TRAY TURN PS2 OFF AND CLEAN THE LASER EYE WITH A COTTON BUD DONT PRESS ON HARD AS THIS WILL DAMAGE THE PICK UP BLOCK AND SCERATCH THE LASER EYE
HOPE THIS HELPS YOU PLEASE DONT USE ANY WATER OR CHEMICALS ON THE COTTON BUD

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 =)
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.
ok, i recommend 1st making sure all the PS2 games are clean, and scratch free..then...wait, wat version is the counsel?..V-7(most common large) or a V-10 (slim)...well, in any case..open her up, give it a spray down with a O2 can...then check the lense..."clean if nesisary"...i have also noticed with playstation2 games...that if u leave the disc laying upside down for month...and dust collects on the disc...that dust not coming off...
The laser could be melted from extended attempts at reading an unreadable disc. If so, You need a new laser.
The Disc is not spinning which could be a motherboard failure. If so, you need a new motherboard
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.
