Hi Randomsk8tr, If your not Electrnically challenged you can clean the system yourself. Remove the power cord first. Carefully open the system by removing the screw covers and screws on the bottomof your PS2. You will need to cut warranty seal at the seams of the case. Lift the top cover of the case from the back slightly and stright up after the case clears the Buttons on the front and lay it to your Right upside down without messing up any cables. Using a #00 philips Screwdriver, open the cover of the Laser disc drive. Using rubbing alcohol , dip one end of a Q-tip into the alcohol, then dry it a little bit. Swab the lens of the laser, then use the dry end of the Q-tip to dry the lens. REmove any hair or lent from the disc player. Then reassemble and try it out. If you want a qualified service to get your PS2 running check me out at www.playstationclinic.com. I will give you a discount price $20 plus shipping to and from the Playstation Clinic located in Fountain Inn, SC. My service will Detail clean your unit completely, and fine tune and enhance the disc reading for all types of discs the PS2 is supposed to read.

It likely needs a cleaning. A PROFESSIONAL cleaning, not a lens disc.... There isa a slim chance ther laser is dead, but it's more likely just the cleaning. Rates vary, but my shop charges about $56 for PS2 cleanings (we actually clean inside the optical assembly and mechanisms and reallign eveything back to spec).

The game cannot be read on our ps2, but the ps2 works for other games. the disk looks fine. what can we try to get this game to play?

Even if the game isn't scratched, you should try holding it under a light to see if there are any fingerprints or smudges on the disc. You can try cleaning the disc with a lint-free cloth if you've got one, though I've never had trouble with a cotton t-shirt. Wipe from the center of the disc straight towards the outer edge. Do this for the entire disc and try it again.

If that doesn't work, please update this issue with the error message you're seeing if any. Does the disc show up in the PS2 browser? Do you get a disc read error? Does the screen just go black when you try to play the game?

Getting a disc error when turning on the ps2 with ps2 games, but it works with ps1 games...!

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.

MY ps2 Doesnt read PS2 Cd games

If you are trying to read a burnt game, you need it chipped first. If not, maybe your game is burnt or scratched. Some video stores will fix them for free. (Movie Gallery is where I go)

Will not read ps2 games

The newer models of the PS2 Do not have the E-motion chip in them meaning that they will not read PS2 games. If you do indeed have a model that is designed to read PS2 games, then you will need to contact Sony and have them fix it.
