PS2 problems

Yeah, I've tried 3 games so far, and all of them are stuck at the pain PS2 loading screen. I click on the System link on the main screen when you load up the PS2, and it says Disc Read Error.

The thing is, the 3 games I've tried are barely scratched. They have some scratches on them, yeah, but nothing major.

I've tried wipping the CD's off, rebooting my PS2 from that button in the back, blowing into the fan vent thing to get any dust off. Nothing is working, damnit.

Is there anything I can do to make it work? My parents won't buy me any of that scratch remover, since they think it won't work, so is there anything I can use around the house or what?

Or is it my PS2? Is it dead? :(

This happened to me, it's one of the lasers.

There is a laser for PS2 games, and another last for PS1 games. Try a PS1 game. if that doesn't work then both lasers are broke, if not, then just the one.

Take it to a game place, it's a pretty basic thing for them to fix, but if you take it apart yourself before you take it to as repair place, they won't touch it, so I wouldn't recommend doing so.

Shouldn't cost that much to fix at a repair place, for me it was like £20 - $35. You can buy replacements from Sony but they are like £100/$135.

Why don't you take to say, EBgames or the the store you bought it from? They might have some warranty thing that would help you out.

Edit: I was typing this, apparently, while Standard was. <_<

The same thing happened to me, right before Christmas it stopped working. Everyone has been telling me what they told you, to bring it somewhere and get the eye laser thingy fixed.

I got a PS2 the day it was released and when the disc read error came up I called Sony. I had to pay to send it to them, but they paid for all parts and labor and sent it back to me for free. Something about the first shipments being flawed. So if you have one from those shipments you might be good. It only cost me like 20 bucks and thats cause I insured it for $300 :P

First Run PS2s = A Test Match

Seriously the laser system they have (White knob controlls the level of the lazer) is retarded. Call up Sony and get it fixed fo free.

In a drunken slumber about two nights ago I pulled my PS2 to the ground via controller.

Would they make it stop working?

Yes and no.

Depends on how it landed (Mine survived a fall), The disc inside is probably done for as the one mine had in it almost imploded on itself. Other then that my old one was fine, Then again the POI was on a corner.

I did that too, then the lazer died again months later, so I had my parents buy me the new skinny one for my birthday. No problems as of yet. *knock on wood*

Good lord! What do you people do to these things?

Please God somebody help me! The place where you put the disc into is jammed about half way out. Whenever I press the close button on the thing it won't budge! What should I do? Please help me or risk losing my Playstation forever.

I'll admit, The Cube is the best built. That fugger (And any Nintendo product) is rock solid

My 'cube dropped once from the same height as the playstation and now I have to put a book on top to keep the lid close, and the logo on the top fell off.
