Slimline PS2 disc read problems
  • I have a slimline PS2, warranty expired, and it only reads PS2 games will always read PS1 games, but it will read a PS2 game maybe once out of every 70 tries of opening the top and closing it again. It turns on fine, and I can get to the browser and everything, but it will always say "The disc cant be read" for PS2 games. I tried opening up the console tonight, and cleaned out some dust, and was real careful to not bump any wires. After putting it back together, it still reads Ps1 games, but no ps1 games. What should I do?
  • The problem is the DVD lens either being dirty or misaligned inside the system. There are a number of sites around the web for fixing a misaligned lens- I only recommend trying this if you are sure of what you are doing.
  • All it took was rubbing alcohol on the lens with a q-tip, and it seems to work fine now. Thanks for the help.
