    Well I finally got it today, the dreaded blue-bottomed disc read error. Luckily, I read about a solution in Gamepro and it worked like a charm. All I had to do was place two strips of scotch tape, about 1 1/2" long parallel to each other on opposite sides of the hole on the label side of the game (NHL 2002), and voila, up and running again. Pass it on.[​IMG]

    Yeah, I had that problem too. The tape thing had only worked for a week though. After that your going to have to open the ps2 and adjust the left pot.

    Matt,

    Can you elaborate on the "left pot" adjustment? I'm getting disc read errors as well.

    yes, please elaborate on the "left pot" fix. My PS2 won't play CD ROM games (blue bottom disc). I tried the two pieces of tape method, and tried cleaning it with compressed air, but neither worked.
