OK. Here's what ya do, if you really want it to work - takes a bit of getting dirty, but you can do it!
A screwdriver (The cross one - electric is best, but it doesn't matter)
Some White Spirit
A small piece of metal / tiny Philips screwdriver
A black, small tipped marker/felt-tip pen (I mean small tip 0.5 or less)
Unplug your PS2, take out any disc. Unscrew the case - pull of 6 rubber feet and unscrew - then unscrew the drive cover (four screws). Next, dab the cotton bud into some white spirit and gently wipe the lense clean, should be all shiny :D. Then, you should see a white cog, with a metal piece in it. Mark the notch where they interesect with the pen. Now, move it (either anti-clockwise or clockwise) about 2 notches. Close up the disc drive, and power it up, with the disc in. It should work, in which case screw everything back together, and be happy.
This WILL make any warranty you have redundant, but it's not like you were going to pay £60 for an "upgrade", really?
I take it on the back of the PAL box it doesn't say anything about it not working on certain models? Then you're perfectly in your rights to at the very least demand a refund for the game. Someone on the playstation forums on the official site is talking about taking it to watchdog, seems a good course of action
