    Hi all

    Quick query (sorry if asked before) but my sons PS2 has recently begun to bring up a 'Disc Read Error' message on some of his games (ones that worked fine previously). Strangely only a few discs affected with literally dozens of others working fine. I have checked and cleaned the discs and no obvious scratches or similar. Any ideas as to problem and/or solution ? would a standard Dvd/CD laser cleaner disc help ?

    Cheers

    I've followed this guide and my old fat PS2 is working as if brand new, well worth doing if you have problems.

    Hi

    Finally got some time to try the re-calibration outlined above and it seems to have worked a treat (after fighting with those miniscule screws !!) as my lad can now play the games that were coming up 'disc error'.

    Many thanks for help:thumbsup:

    & Merry Christmas
