    I'm think I'm going to need a new Laser Lens or DVD-Drive
    for my PS2.

    After I got the Magic 3 chip a few days ago (after having the PS2 for 2 years,
    but barely playing it because I only had 2 crappy games to play) back-ups seemed to work fine, with a "Cannot read DVD Disc" error only very occasionally which could usually be fixed after opening and closing the DVD Drive. I use TDK and Proformance DVD-Rs

    After playing an original PAL (The standard here), rental version of GoldenEye, which
    worked fine, the PS2 seems to have died, no game can be
    read, whether original or backup. This was kind of progressive, GTA: SA Got to the loading screen before the drive started making a weird noise which is pretty tell-tale that the DVD Can't be read before giving a CAn't Read DVD Error, now I'm always stuck on the PS2 Browser.

    I've tried using a DVD lens cleaner which isn't read
    properly either, it gets to the menu, then the DVD Drive
    begins to make the "ehh ehh ehh" noise that it does with
    games before I get the "Disc Cannot Be Read Error"

    Any advice?

    It sounds like you need a PS2.

    Forget the laser. A new PS2 will cost near the same.

    no no, the lens plus the procedure.

    This is so fucking annoying! I just got that chip 6 days ago with 7 games to play which I've played for around an hour all together over the last week because I just havn't had time.

    Today was the day I was going to spend the whole time playing and it doesn't work now...

    And it's my birthday

    Have you even opened it up to clean it manually?

    No... Not into opening up delicate electronics :/

    Do you think it's just dirty?

    Oh, before you open it. Check to see if you got a Walmart anywhere near you. You can return anything there.
