Hi all

I have fired up an old PS2 consul I got from my neighbours teenage son who didn't want it anymore, it's all working well, I get the Browser menu up etc. but when I place an old game in I get nothing other than data error or No data, am I missing something here? I haven't used a PS2 consul for some time could it be that I have no memory card inserted? one didn't come with it, do I need one to make it work properly, please help.

it's quite old now , and not worth doing a laser replacement

but you could dismantle the case and use a cotton bud to clean the lens and see if that helps ?

but if your ok at replacing a new laser is cheep , are you can get a full Replacement Full Optical Block Laser Lens from HK for about £12 ?

Important: These laser units are as manufactured. They have only been used by removing the solder protection so I can test them before shipping and so you only have to plug it in when you receive it.

It's been a while since I relaced one of those but I do remember just needing to clean and lightly oil the runners and worm gear of a friend's PS2. It's not always the case though and probably worth just replacing the laser unit.
