    All you have to do is change the laser. You will have to buy it though. But it real hard to change the laser in the old PS2.

    OR

    YOU MAY TRY FOLLOWING TUTORIAL (Courtesy: Exploitstation)

    yeah, that is the exact guide i was ready to post after reading the problem. Try cleaning the laser. If that doesn't work try adjusting the laser but be very careful and read the instructions!
    If those both fail (adjusting the laser you may have to try 10-12 different notches to know for sure) then a replacement laser is your best bet.

    Try this put the game in and place it on its side standing up or keep it upside down try that with silver and blue bottomed disks (dvd,cd)

    Or take a cotton swab and dip it into rubbing alcohol with isopropyl make sure its not that damp though, then place on the eye of your lens and spin it to the right for 30 seconds then flip it over and dry it to the right for thirty seconds.

    Then adjust the pot of your laser
