    My son's PS2 has stopped reading silver discs ie DVDs and most PS2 games, it still seems to cope with black discs ie PS1.

    I've opened it up and tried to follow the lens adjustment instructions I found on the web but it seems to be different from the pics on the instruction sites I've found - i'm presuming it's a later model?

    Any advice appreciated..PJ :)

    Once the drive stops reading DVDs there isnt much you can do apart from replace the drive.

    Also heard about greasing the run of the laser lens for smooth movement. Not sure of details , but I'm sure it is somewhere on web / forums.
