my 8 year old son accidently dropped his slimline ps2 station on the floor well actually it is a 14inch drop onto a carpet. Now it will not play any games it comes up with the message 'cannot read data' i do not think the disc is spinning inside im not sure if it is suppose to as im not good with things like this.
Looks like it's time for him to learn the lesson of picking up gets u a new ps2 in a week. Sry best luck. Try to find a "mom n pop" game store that does game repair. Either yellow pages or google local.
thanks both for your replies i have looked further inside and the disc does go round i think the laser eye may not be reading the disc, maybe come out of place, unfortunately i live in turkey so will have to try and search for a person who may be able to repair it. I originally bought this in the UK as they are so much cheaper than here in Turkey.
Do they sell CD/DVD lens cleaning disks there? It looks like an ordinary CD/DVD, but it has little brushes on it that brush dust/debris off the lens. Of course if the lens is misaligned due to extreme heat/cold or some other reason, then cleaning the lens will not fix the problem.
