supercell1995: I've owned my silver slim PS2 since 2006 around the time it was originally released, have been playing a multitude of games for a DECADE without problems. Suddenly it won't read PS2 games ONLY, and I can still play PS1 games! Isn't that weird!
People have been telling me only the fat PS2 systems had the disc reading problem but obviously they are all WRONG. This guy proves that with this video. I knew I wasn't crazy. I've never owned a fat original brick PS2. Friends told me they were crap systems and so I never bought one.
I'll try all these tips out and see if it works. Thanks for uploading.
Wesley C: I used 3 not working PS2 games, I try to use Midnight Club 3 DUB Edition, God of War and Gran Turismo 4, it didn't read these games.
Aerobix: freak this piece of crap ! I just threw my ps2 slim out of the window !
Lynx CrazyOtaku: excuse me but mine is having simular issues with the cover but it's making a weird noise and clicks, do you have any suggestions that could help, and I also have another that works great but refuses to read blue discs.
Vidal Mand: how the hell could dust accumulate in the console? looks like I'll have to try cleaning whatever's there in it
bailout10x: so i played my ps2 standing up and i had something next to it so it wouldnt fall and one day i was changing my game and it fell and it wouldnt read discs anymore.. any help?
Kolag Faggleson: Can anyone give me some sugestions? my slim wont spin up and the laser doesnt move, I tried testing the two buttons that are supposed to spin it up but nothing happened so I took the motor and laser out of the ps2 and re attached it and still got nothing....the crappy thing is I just bought a.new power supply , video cord and nfsmw but cant do jack with it....
CIOCIA ZBYSZEK GAMING: Stop touching the laser!! You can damage it
Steven Bryant: Thanks alot, I appreciate your video, worked out great. Thank you
maybbyy11: mine doesn't say can't read the disc, it says there is no data! and sometimes it brings up the ps2 logo and then the screen goes black?! what is happening?
MiST Mist: mine ps2 doesnt spin the disk.
Mr “buckyballs” B: Thanks so much I tried this and it worked a treat. My daughter is very happy now because she can play final fantasy 10
TheFive8th: I have this tiny trophy thing that I chuck on the disc tray of my PS2 when I feel like playing it, but it's really annoying because I have to move it around every now and again to keep the disc spinning so it works without an issue. It's really annoying.
Old glory: Go on the video on my channel. What is the problem with mine??
Tedworthington: The weight trick helped. Ta.
George Murray: i found a funny thing about a ps2 slim i have it did work the worm gear jsut grinded so i took it apart removed the void sticker and opened it turns out the ribbon cable for the laser reader was not there and the void sticker was on the screw so sony freaked up there
Amir Zaim Mohd Zaini: The easiest solutuion is put the tiny piece of adhesive paper or sticky paper and paste it around the optical disc drive motor, put at least 3-4 layers each position and also put a tiny piece of adhesive paper on the lens but don't stick it directly at the lens.
coyle102: You just out your thumb on top of the lens twice in this video. This is a guide on how to fix a ps2.. right ?
Emiel Rol: just bought Kingdom Hearts again
Tara Hoy: despite the fact i followed your video thoroughly. it didnt work..... although on a minor plus side with me being so new to opening up my systems and checking them out. i didnt screw up and make it worse. just still the disc reading error..... 😭😭
