What's causing the PS2 to stop running certain Discs?

Post by Vastell on Thu Jun 23, 2011 12:27 pm

Okay I need to know, it's very annoying. If anyone else knew how their PS2 looked on the inside when trying to fix it from suddenly not reading any discs and found out what worked, please let me know directly.

One model we had worked nicely for a few years (till some stupid fools said "you can't till *wtf ever they say*", being complete retards) but then got worn down and started giving off lots of errors. It then stopped reading category color codes of game CDs (this one stopped running the DVD type stored games which were the larger ones of the bunch), then eventually stopped reading all of that same type it kept messing up with, till it was getting to a point of not reading any CDs whatsoever then that's when it had to go.

We have another model, but it's doing the same thing to two of the other types and now even some scratchless games aren't working! (This one isn't reading the Playstation 1 discs, nor the blue-backed types of PS2 games which are smaller, such as Castle Shikigami, or Raiden 3, and those two are scratchless!) This mod almost even started to get like the oldest one, but when I found out some wire in the chipboard under the disk reader was a bit askew and just pushed it back further inward from where it looked dislocated from, it started working with the DVD type discs again, well, some of them.

The laser which read the discs could be starting to fail.

Your best option may be to get the PS2 modded and run your games off a Hard Drive.

first off, slim or brick models? i remember long in the past that the brick models would go out and stop reading psx discs before long. i have taken my slim apart quite a few times, but only repairs i'm skilled in are cleaning the lens and realigning the motor. the motherboard, i don't touch at all. i'm even scared to try and install a mod chip if i ever get one

as for the discs that aren't scratched not reading, that's always a mystery. i had the same exact error with Rogue Galaxy. and i think my copy of Drakengard is in the same situation. it could be any number of errors or occurrences

White Len : We have the old bulky type, but at least SC3 still works on it. Smile

I modded mine to play all my mecha games and games that never left the states.

I'm looking at YOU Tales of the Abyss.

It's just wear and tear. Every PS2 is prone to it.
