    PS2 Disc Read Error

    Help! I was playing my PS2 the other night and it locked up on me. I restarted it and no matter what disc I put in there, I got a disc read error. Any ideas on what I can do to fix it?

    I can still access my memory cards.

    Oh no! Might be a CD drive going out. First try and clean your CD drive. You can buy a lens cleaner set anywhere. Hopefully that will work. If not- better box that bad boy up and exchange it somewhere that's still doing all the Christmas returns

    I've had the PS2 for over a year and a half, so the box is long gone. I'll try cleaning it again tonight. If that doesn't work I have to get it repaired, any ideas who might do it?

    Yeah, I learned a long time ago to keep all of my game system boxes. Plus it's great to have when you move!

    Anyway....you could always buy a new one, at Wal-Mart or somewhere, and swap out the deck. But I didn't just say that.

    The bad news is, with the cost of repair (about $100) and shipping, it's almost better to just buy a new one.

    Wow, that's more money to fix it than I thought:

    If it is the "laser eye" it would be $120 + Shipping.

    Is there a big difference between different versions of the PS2?

    I wouldn't think that there would be that much of a difference between different versions the PS2, unless you are comparing imports from other countries.

    The other thing to do is go under Version and try the self Diognostics.

    Rouge II, on the back of you PS2, what's the model # It should be SCPH-30001 or SCPH-30001R.

    Well, I bought a can of air and now my PS2 is working again.

    I have a SCPH-30001.

    I changed the Diagnostic to "on" but nothing happened. Did I miss something?

    Under Playstation Driver, there is Disc Speed and Texture Mapping both are set for Standard. What are they for?
