Slimline PS2 makes weird noises

When i load and game or dvd onto my ps2 slimline it starts to make really weird noises like the disc is scraping along the sides as it goes round.
I wondered if there was anything maybe jammed underneath where the disc goes but i can't seem to see anything that would be a problem to it.

Please help, is it definately broken or is there anything i can try?

My PS2 will play only some DVD movies fine. It does the same with PS2 games. Seems like they have removed something that the older, larger PS2s had that allowed them to read DVDs more deeply and play...


Hi there Mike,

The only possible reason for your problem, since your slimline ps2 is STILL reading them (but just a little slow sometimes), is because the lens could hardly read your discs due to dust build up. Try cleaning it using a disc cleaner and letting it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not fix the issue, then you may have to MANUALLY clean the lens. Open the cover and once you see the lens, get a clean swab or qtip and damp it in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens in a circular manner. Then let it dry and try to play those discs again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

My PS2 won't spin a disc


try both audio and game disks if it will not turn the disks then the motor hub on the ps2 is shot if it will play the audio cd and not play the game then the laser is out of alignment but if you hear it spinning it could also be a burnt out laser as well further information would be required to diagnose this issue further.

Ps2 scph 77001 won't play backups on swap magic 3.6


This is a problem that has too many IF's in it lol. Let's take it from the top shall we?

When you said that you owned other PS2's were they the thick ones or the slim ones. Swap magic works best in the "thick older" models. In these new slimline ones it's got issues. That model number you posted belongs to a slimline model.

So since you're using a slimline model, I have to ask, Have you blocked the 2 sensors that you need to block in order to use swap magic. The slimline models are not like the older thick models. You need to block two sensors under the flip top so when you open the flip top the PS2 still thinks there is no swapping going on. If you have not blocked these sensors head over to youtube.com and start watchin vids with seach "how to block slim PS2 sensors" or "how to block slimline PS2 sensors" out of the three sensors you only really need to block two. If you have not done this at all, that is reason why it's not working. On older PS2 models you used a slidecard or some form of a flip top to swap out your disks. Nothing has changed on these slimline models. The PS2 still needs to be tricked out so it doesn't think you're swapping disks in and outa the system.

Hope that helps,

Ps2 slimline is scraping my discs


Much of the clicking & grinding noises stem from the laser trying to find where to read on the disk & roving back & forth on the arm. Depending on the age of the system you can be under warranty for getting it fixed for free.

Otherwise. You can open the xbox and clean the laser. If this doesn't work than there may be damage to the motor. If that is the case then you need to have it professionally repaired. Don't attempt to repair it yourself or you may void a warranty if you have one.

I hope this was able to fixya problem and Happy Gaming!

Ps2 slimline problem


The laser housing is probably loose. Pretty annoying. It would probably take sending it in for repairs.
