    The first thing I Suggest Is To Use A Cotton Swab With 90% Alcohol To Clean Your Lenses. 90% Alcohol Cleans 90% Of Anything!!!! Then Use A CD Lenses Cleaner. That Should Solve Your Problem. One More Thing Clean Your Games With The 90% Alcohol Also. It Will Be Great!!!!

Is it all game disks or just one ? It may be something as simple as a greasey finger print on the disk or a scratch that stops your console from reading a disk

SOURCE: ps2 not reading discs

does it still read the disk you was playing or not if it dont then you could buy a lense cleaner put this into you ps2 and then after it has cleaned the lense try your games again you can buy these really cheap and they are just a disk with little brushes onn that cleans the lense in anything that takes disks if this dont solve the problem and the ps2 dont play any disk at all then the laser will need replacing you can replace it yourself but it will need to be recalibrated witch is something a pro must do as not doing this will stop it reading any disk but you only get this prob if you buy new laser you can get second hand ones but you never no if they are working or not hope this is some help to you

SOURCE: My Sony PlaySatation2 console wont read any games on PS2 discs.

9 out of 10 times when the fat ps2 cant/wont read disk its the cd tray needs to be adjusted.

I would suggest opening up the ps2 and cleaning the console with Qtips and rubing alcohol. if the laser will wont read. go to youtube.com type in fix my ps2 laser. you will watch a video on how to adjust your cd tray.

The reason for this issue is if the laser is to close or to far from the cd the laser cant read the cd.


the worse problem u can come across is the laser 100% failed. which is rare but you can buy a new/used working laser on ebay.com or google it. the laser will have the model on it you want to make sure you get the correct model. otherwise it wont work.

My ps2 wont read silver back disks. how do you fix it

Hi there!
When your PS2 starts to have problems reading silver backed discs you could be experiencing one of 2 different problems:
  1. Your laser or disc is dirty (clean off your disc with a soft cotton cloth, and clean the laser in your PS2 with a cd drive cleaning cd)
  2. The laser in your PS2 is going, you will need to take it into a shop to have it repaired, replace the laser or disc drive yourself (this will void the warranty if you have one) or get a new or different PS2.
Hope this helps!

I was just wondering, IF the PS2 can play games that have been edited on a computer/laptop (e.g. 4-disc PS1 game put onto one disc), and not edited as in the actual game disc being edited, but put on a...

Your system needs a mod chip to play games on a disc that was not created by Sony.
Most ps2 games are DVD's only some are cd's.. All of the ps1 games are cd's so if you burnt it onto a dvd its not going to work.

Ps2 slim dose not read some discs

i have encountered these problem with my slim ps2 many times before... the solution for your problem is very easy...... 


when you insert your disk in your slim ps2 you must hear atleast three quick click sounds, theis sounds represents the cd has been locked in into the driver, to be able to check if it has already locked touch the top part of the cd pertaining to the center part once youve touched it feel if there is no unbalanced portion... if no your ready to play...... if yes reinsert it until you hit the right angle..... these takes a lot of practice just to do it safe for the console and the person..... enjoy...................

My PS2 will not play my games

Hi Willhayes79, Test to see if the PS2 will read any Discs it is supposed to read. Try CD, CDR, PS1, PS2 Blue, PS2 silver, DVD. It might read something. To repair open the case, and clean everything in sight. Dust is your enemy. ?When you get to the lens, Use a Q-tip lightly damped with Rubbing Alcohol to swab the lens clean. Then dry it. You may have to completely disassemble the PS2 all the way to get all the dust. I believe Dust is shorting out your disc drive spindle. If your not comfortable with fully disassembling you playstation, Then go to WWW.playstationclinic.com and they may do a Cleaning and Tuning for $20 plus shipping.

Read Error (With FFX game)

Hi Raven, Its sounds like you have a PS2 Slim with a melted Laser. What you will find is that the Slim will only read CD's, CDR's, PS1 Games, Blue back PS2 games and DVD's. I can repair this for $35 plus shipping to and from The Playstation Clinic in Fountain Inn, SC. The webpage is www.playstationclinic.com If you do not have a Slim, you either have dirty disc, or Lens. You may have left some fibers from the Q-tip across or around the lens.
