Help! PS2 eats its young...

My PS2's games just stop working after a while. Why? About half our games just stopped working at various times, even ones with a nearly perfect surface. They now generate a disk error.

Anyone else experience this? What can be done?

In the middle of the game? did it used to play the game before? and now it just comes up with an error? am i correct?
the dreaded disc read error you need to try and clean the lens with a lens cleaning disc and if that doesnt work it will be a new laser unit or a new ps2 for you im afraid
ya... i got that at one point... what you want to do is take it apart carfuly and when you get to the lens use a Q-tip and put rubbing alcoal on it and clean it out carfully .. have it dry put it back togeher but if that doesnt work I fear that you have to get a new system

Laser has bummed up (thats the technical term for it)
The lens cleaner disc seems to have made a difference. Thank you to all of you guys.
