Default unable to loadup AR Max or backup cd's

i have a ps2 ver4 w/ a messiah2 pro chip. i can boot up my ritek g4 dvd's but unable to boot up AR max or my other cd based games. i was able to before but now it takes me to the "browser/system config" screen". the cd's that were working well at the time for me were the memorex black cd-r's, and AR max was loading up w/ no problems too. is the laser damaged? do i need to replace it. btw, i haved used someone's tutorial on how to clean the laser and i beleive i did it carefully. i have tried other brands of cd-r's but to no avail. any suggestions?
