Problem with sons PS2

hello
games are now just saying reading, then it says disc read error. Dead Ps2 or easy fix at all. They are really bumbing out.

Try calling Sony. They had a recent settlement about this issue and may fix your PS2 for free or at a discount. There are also a few online guides for adjusting the laser that can give you a temporary fix. I would definitely try calling Sony first before opening up the console.

try standing up the console on it's side, it may help with the disc read problems.
