If your new PS2 is NTSC and you are trying to play PAL cds then it would not play and also if you it is a PAL console then it won't play NTSC cds. You can program it also to play both cds, its going to cost you any way.
good buddy,if your ps2 is pal then you can only play disc with the region 2 designation only,if you want your ps2 to play other region such as ntsc/uc U.S. or ntsc/j ***.you need to bring it to a certified techman for modding.thats the only way for you to dissolve this problem.
You may need to clean and readjust the laser, which is painstakingly long and hard. As there are like 7 or 8 different version numbers of the PS2 each one has a slightly different internal configuration, guides can easily be found by typing in "PS2 Disk Read Error" on a search engine like www.google.com
Sorry I couldn't help you more, I tried to fix my own PS2 about a year ago and ruined the motor drive for the tray, so will not touch or condone such unless your pretty good with small parts and electronics.
The only Idea I have is that your Laser lens may be melting. This would explain the eratic behavior you describe. I have found that in the progression of the meltdown, the Laser hates reading silver backed discs at first. Then it will progress to not reading DVD's at all. Then nothing.
You need to look at your lens up close with a Magnifying glass. To do this you must take the console apart. you will need a new laser if you find that melting of the lens and or its support frame are melted.
There are a couple of things that you can try. The main issue is there is a problem with the laser, try to clean the lens of the drive. If this does not work, then you laser is bad. You'll have replacement with new laser.
Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.
