You might wonder why your PS2 isn’t working. Well, if you’re getting Disc Read Errors
on multiple discs, all of which appear to be in good condition, then you most likely have
one of two common problems. Either your laser is being obstructed by dirt and dust, or
the laser’s voltage is not properly adjusted.
Please Note: That I have written this for people with little or no knowlege of electronics.
The Playstation 2 is a precise gaming console. Fixing the console yourself should not be
done unless completely necessary. You may also risk electric shock, so do anything
within your power to remain safe while attempting these repairs.
If you can, use an anti-static wrist band to ground yourself. This device is available at any
electronics store (e.g. Radio Shack.)
These repairs require opening the case, which WILL void your warranty. If your console
is still under warranty think twice about cracking the seal.
Adjusting the laser’s voltage requires some precision, being too rough can cause damage
which you will not be able to fix. Be very careful when doing this process!!! Be prepared
to pay Sony over $120 to fix this part if you damage it!!!
Always attempt the laser CLEANING before trying to adjust the voltage!!!!!!
This is the easiest thing you can do to attempt to fix your PS2, while it hardly ever works
it only take a minute or two, and should be done first before you take apart your machine.
1) You must be in the "main menu" screen of the PS2 console, the first screen that comes
up when you start with no disc in.
2) press the "triangle button"
3) Select "Console" from the top using the up directional buttons and press the "Triangle"
4) Select "On" using the up and down directional buttons and press the "X" button
5) Insert a disc. The console automatically starts the diagnosis.
CLEANING THE LASER:
-Normal phillips head screwdriver
-Small phillips head screwdrivver
-Rubbing Alcohol (Isopropyl)

Taking the PS2 apart is fairly simple, nothing too complicating. All that you’re basically
going to do is remove the upper shell, remove the lens cover, clean the lens, and put
everything back together again. Just be sure to follow the steps, and read through each
step and understand it before going through with it. Sometimes the instructions may seem
a little too in depth or complicating, but just use your common sense and you should
understand. It’s a lot easier if you print it out, as well.
1. Make sure that you have a neat, clean area set aside for taking the PS2 apart. A small
box or cup to put screws in. Flip your PS2 over so that the bottom (horizontally) is facing
up. There should be 6 screw covers, 4 plastic and 2 rubber, that need to be removed. You
can use the butter knife for this. Screws should be uncovered under them. There should
be 2-4 more screw covers on the outer side of the base, underneath the controller ports
(where the system goes out a few inches from the base). The older model PS2’s have 4
screw covers, while the newer ones have only 2. Remove them all, and you should now
have a total of 8-10 screws unveiled. Set the screw covers aside.
2. Using the normal sized phillips head screwdriver, remove all of the screws.
REMEMBER where the longer screws go. If you do not remember where the long
screws go, you could put a hole through a circuit board by trying to force the long screw
in where it is not supposed to be. Make sure all of the screws are removed, and put them
3. The PS2 shell should now be ready to remove. ONLY the UPPER side (with the PS2
logo) needs to be removed to clean the lens - Leave the BOTTOM side on. But, be...
