myps2 isnt reading anything not even real ps2 games it just comes up with disk read error
Have you cleaned the laser lens?
do i need to take the cover off to do that
You could try one of them CD/DVD cleaners, but Sony have a history of ps2's not reading so you will be lucky if it works, trust me am on my 3rd ps2 because the other two would not read anything.
If you stood it vertical, or play a lot of DVDs on it, yeah ... you may need to replace the laser. If you haven't modded it, call Sony. Check this thread out:
allright this is what u have to do..this may work..it did for me..i had the similar problem..diff mod chips have diff tricks to them..for example for dvds instead of just pressing the reset button for a sec keep it held for say 3 seconds for it to turn green instead of one second...also there are tricks to playing dvds and games for example u need to hold the reset button longer for a dvd to read and shorter for ps2/ps1 game..anyway just try what i said about holding the reset button a little longer..and let us know if it worked out
