There are 2 different lasers in the reader one for each type of disk. One can go out with the other still working. They can be replaced with some eas. Just look up a tutorial of lazer replacement in the PS2 if you are thinking about doing it yourself. As a side note there are several different versions of the lazer. You may need to pop it open to see which one you need to order.

Thank you! Do you think any stores will fix it? (I'm not the best person with technology..)


A large majority of cell phone repair stores/computer repair stores will also repair game consoles.


Thank you! :)
