    I was play backups fine on my ps2.
    Then I made A copy of Teen age mutant turtles. I work fine.
    The next day I stop playing games. I use a swap chip it wont play back up movies now and I did not need a chip for that

    stop playing backups or all together? if all of them it's defently lens and it's die OR it can be the ps2 itself do you hear a sound of the lens going up or down of the reader moving or the cd spinning if yes it's a ps2 problem... if you dont hear anything it's the lens... see when the lens goes to heaven the spinning proces dont work anymore... the lens try to read then spins 1 inch then stops then you should replace the lens..

    Before buying a new laser you can check the calibration of the laser (pots on the bottom of laser) or checking to make sure that the alignment on the disc that holds/spins the disc is horizontally correct. Things to check before spending the cash. It still could very well be your laser especially if you are still running with a ver 1 or 2 ... good luck.
