    That is the most common error the ps2 has. Essentially you have to remove the cover of the unit and then the dvd cover to expose the tray and laser. using a q-tip dabbed in alcohol, rub the rubber pickup wheel and the laser eye itself lightly. Let the laseer dry but rub the pickup around lightly with your finger to remove excess hair and debris.
    That usually fixes most of the errors.
