Re: PS2 Wont Play
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.
Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
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.
Remove all the screws.
Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
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.
Remove the CD tray lid.
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.
Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
Remove the little white disc from the CD tray lid.
Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
Put it back together, and you’re in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for Repair. Contact [email protected]

I am having the same problem with my PS2, but I have an HDD inside of mine. I am told this is a circuit problem inside the PS2 that doesn't allow the information to be transfered to the RAM.That's why you see “No Data” instead of the usual problem of “Disc Read Error”.I hate to say it, but it sounds like you are going to have to do the same thing I am about to do.Send it in to Sony and get it repaired.
I am also pretty sure this PS2 you are talking about is the large fat one, and not the slim one.
It looks as if your PS2 has died. I'm sorry to say, but since the firmware boots and it's just the disc error message, it lokos like a hardware error that is likely irreparable.
This is the best "solution" i can give! please dont blame me! Just trying to help... but you can find great used ones for cheap now.
