Hi Jzone,

 

I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in.   Procedure is different for Slim PS2. 

 

  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws.  These are little square pieces or square rubber pads.  You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. REmove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray.  Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the REset/Eject buttons.  Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact. 
  7. Remove the Cd tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the Cd area.  Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens.  All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. REmove the little white disc from the Cd tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it,  Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and your in business.

If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for Repair.  Contact [email protected]

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)

Ps2 (slim)

Well first off, make sure the disk if in PS1 OR PS2 format. That is what the PS2 Is requesting when it says "Please insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk. The Slim PS2 has various problems reading disk.(Don't Know why? I own it and Know it does). The Fat version(1st version) is a much better system, in my opionion. Try blowing air to clean the disk reader. Or changing the disk reader portion out, At a small price.

How to fix a scratch ps2 game

Go to the closest game shop. They probably have a kind of polishing tool that removes scratches from CD surfaces.

You can also buy such a machine. If you frequently scratch your CDs it will pay off.

PS2 wont load PS2 games

you need to get a laser disk which cleans the inside of the ps2 especially for ps2 games and if that doesnt work then you need to get someone to undo all the case and clean it themselves hope that helps :)

Disc is trouble

Ratbag: Check the following: 1. CD surface. If it has many scratches, should use a CD Fix kit. For it, if you consider that the game is worthy. 2. Clean the laser lens with a CD Lens Cleaner, most of us (and I should apply this also) do not clean frequently the Laser Lens, causing this kind of problems. SithPitt
