Known as the ''PS2'', it is a sixth-generation video game console first released by Sony in Japan in March 2000. The United States saw it later in 2000 with the SCPH-30000. Repair of this device requires only common tools, but can get tricky.

I've tried to clean the lens.But it is not working.


My device model is SCPH-30006


Have you checked on the links that talk about the adjustment? I believe its the last one I posted in my answer.


I checked the links,but they doesn't work for me.


If even after adjustments and cleaning and after making sure that your dives cables are all connected appropriately I think you may just be due for a new drive :( sorry

I am assuming that you are out of warranty since your console has been used for 7 years :-) Of course you may just have a dirty laser that needs to be cleaning and most recommend isopropyl alcohol or just a good optical lens cleaning cloth, available in most department stores with their spectacles. The other issue could of course be mechanical in nature that need a little bit more effort. There is a great guide right here it is also possible that you will require a new laser assmbly if your laser should not be working at all. PlayStation 2 Optical Disc Drive Laser Assembly Replacement has that. There are also decent instruction in how to deal with your read error drive right here and some more here. Good Luck to you and see if it works for you.
