    aight...after attempting the swap trick my ps2 stopped reading dvd games...it'll read ps1 games, and ps2 cd games and regular cd's.....but won't read anything dvd related....


    I tried adjusting/cleaning the lens, lubing the rods (no homo).....nothings working....i have no idea whats wrong.....

    anybody up on this type of shit? i'm not really tripping since it's my ps2, but it's annoying

    I'm almost 100% positive it's the laser. No other internal hardware would cause that type of behavior. It likely wasn't an issue of it being dirty, just weak to the point where the laser wouldn't read beyond the first layer of data on a disc. If you remember when everyone had laser pointers back in the late 90s, it's kinda like that. And remember when the batteries would die, the laser would get weaker and fade away and not go as far or be as strong? That's what it's like when a PS2 laser goes the shits.

    You probably would've had to have someone replace the laser unit or replace it yourself. Like so...

    Did you clean all the lenses? Some people just clean the 1 thats in plain sight. But if you lift it a tiny but (its on tracks/springs so dont pull too hard) there are 2 lenses hidden inside/underneath.
