ug, yelling, yelling.

Laser is probably dirty or getting burned out. I have seen a lot of posts with the No-solder chip/clip that's burning out lasers.

Try cleaning the laser using a laser cleaner kit and clean the disc. If that still doesn't work, then you need more "drastic" measures - like adjusting DVD/CD pot or replacing the laser.

before you buy a new laser, try my method. Let your ps2 stand vertical and try to boot up games that way. Before, my ps2 wouldnt read the GS2 that well, but then i started putting my ps2 on vertical and it's been working ever since. Hope this helps
