What is PS2 Disc Read Error? As the name suggests, a PS2 disc read error occurs when the PS2 cannot read the disc you have inserted into the drive. The PS2 will usually try to play the DVD for several minutes before showing an error.
Here’s my experience: I’ve had most types of disc errors, so it was obvious that the lasers were the problem. I bought a cheap Chinese laser replacement device, additionally prepared for laser replacement.
I found the PS2 Slim and noticed that the laser rod was not attached to one end!!! so absolutely wrong things were happening all the time…so i just reconnected it and it worked great! The console is very old and funny that I bought from someone, the laser unit technology is good and also reliable that You serve all the time.
Tl;Dr: Open the console and check first before doing anything else.
(This may be a copy of a thread related to the boards I made the other day.)
Your laser is outdated or slightly misaligned. Sometimes they get old. I had exactly the same problem. My system autostarts and I had to try twice. All my programs have been read except for one (Star Ocean: TtEoT). My system was already out of warranty, so I said “what the hell” and opened the issue.
*****Disclaimer: The following process is marked as done exactly as I did it (several times for PS2 friends/family). I disclaim all responsibility if you break your system. *****
This procedure can be used to change the angle of the PS2 laser lens. The risk is low if you don’t touch anything when the system is locked and DO NOT look at the laser when something is happening.
How do you clean a PS2 disc reader?
Remove the covers with a flathead screwdriver.When this cover is removed, the top of the drive is exposed.Carefully remove the top of this disc and the inside with disc reading lens is exposed.Use a damp cotton swab to clean the split drive laser lens.
Remove the screws at the bottom and remove or cut off the warranty sticker on the back of the power button. If you look at the front of the system, the top half will point towards you.Even if you pick it up. Beware, there is a ribbon connector on the right side that connects the power buttons to help with the innards. Place the top in the bay on the right and tighten the small screws that secure the top to the DVD drive.
To open the DVD tray, insert the PS2 and open the tray. Don’t touch anything when the power is high. Your heart stops because you’re touching something, and that’s not bad, my *see. a warning*. The little shiny white wheel on the back is what buyers want. You can use a marker to often mark the gear’s home position if you like. Put a small dot where the dimples appear on the iron rods. Now rotate the house one or two clicks CLOCKWISE. No more than 2 clicks. With the system open, clean the laser lens with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab. DO NOT put a cotton swab, it can transfer fibers to the lens and also scratch it.
You don’t need to fully build it to test it. Usually close the DVD hard drive cover and connect the system. keep onehand on top of the attached cover to press it down. Aerosmith will try to see if it sticks. Also, make sure it lists other media (CDRs, cyan background discs, regular DVDs, etc.) as well. If everything is fine, return this situation to its place and everything is fine – leave. If it is definitely forbidden, try 1 or 2 more attempts to follow the white gear. I never had to do more than 3 clicks, unlike the first time it fixed only 1 for me, and the second time I usually had to work with 2 clicks.

@yoyoAjay it was “Pirates of the Caribbean” and I don’t know what DVD-Video format is used for CD/DVD.
Any possible DVD video will probably work, but make sure it’s a commercial training DVD with this logo:
yoyoAjay, did you set the system language to English?
This is important because the exploit only works on my PS2 if the default is set toThe English language of the system is enabled.
What types of DVD media do you use on your site?
As far as I know, only DVD-R works reliably.
I still had problems with DVD+R, DVD-RW and DVD+RW on my PS2.
What version is your DVD player?
Make sure your website is using the correct FreeDVDBoot image.
How did you manage to burn the entire DVD?
Try finalizing the disc. Not sure if this step is considered necessary, but worth a try.
If these steps don’t work, try this “DVD Movie Method” and let us know if it works.
It would be very interesting to know if all DVD movies affect playback.
