PS2, no data?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
PS2 just reads no data when game is started. Tried several games but same thing. What's up? Has it died?

Sounds like your PS2 drive finally bit the dust. :|

Ive had a total of 5 do that. Especially when you play either Gameshark discs or basically the blue plated disks.

Um there still might be hope. If its anything like the ps1 (I own all of the ps consoles), you should be able to boost the laser's power. There should be some guides about it. I had this happen to me on a ps1, tweaked the laser and it was reading data fine again.

two solutions on this web page. Don't trust them 100%, but it will give you an idea of what you can/will have to do.

Well, it can differ from unit to unit. Sometimes they don't like reading CD-based games and other times they don't like reading DVD-based games. Correct, the blue ones are CD.

The unit is far from dead. I just mentioned in another thread that you can try and adjust the cog wheels that either brings the laser closer or farther away from the disk in order to read it. Try one click on one wheel at a time. Mark the original position of the wheel first and adjust from there.
