Try to play a game that you don't usually play.
If it's clicking might need to check the three little needs in the center of the cd tray one might have fallen and it's inside the cd tray and could be scratching up your games
there are a few solutions to this ill list em from least extreme to most extreme
1. Take a can of compressed air and gently blast some air inside of the CD door, there may be some dust on the reader lens.
2. make sure there arent any scratches on your CDs. a damaged CD will either not play at all or freeze up. when checking for scratches, check both the silver/blue/purple side and the side with the image on it. PS2 discs are notoriously fragile and if mistreated will break easily.
3. Take your playstation to someone who would be able to repair it, though it may or may not be costly, depending on how the repairman feels about the system.
4. finally buy yourself a new system this is the most extreme thing you can do about it, since now gamestops sell new PS2s and used PS2s for under $60
you could buy a new game, but it,s worth trying this disk repair solution first. i,ve been repairing game-music cds/dvds for a couple of years, with 80% sucessful results.
1:) Find an empty jewel Case ( plastic cd holder case ) put the game-disk into the case upside down. ** Underside Facing Up**
2:) Take a soft-cloth ** Yellow Duster Type** and apply a small amount Of T-Cut Or Toothpaste. to the cloth.
3:) holding the disk with one hand, to stop it moving. use your other hand to work the cutting paste into the disk, around the scratched area. using light to medium pressure.
4:) once you,ve polished the area around the scratch, using a clean piece of soft cloth, buff to a polish.
5:) once the scratch has been removed, polish with a light solution of furniture polish, to fill in any surface inperfections.
Confirm the disc is inserted
correctly into the PlayStation 2 console (label side should be facing
up when the PlayStation 2 console is in the horizontal position).
the disc is clean. To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made
specifically for cleaning CD/DVD discs, sold at computer software
stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the
innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do
not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more
scratches on the disc. [Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel
or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches,
smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly.]
Try playing different CDs, DVDs, and games on the PlayStation 2 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PlayStation 2 console (or a PS oneTM or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
that you are not using any game modification devices. Unlicensed
devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper
function of the software. I do not recommend the use of any game
modification devices or unlicensed products.
this shows that your cd is already damaged, the scratches might have hit the critical part. you said that some other cd's of yours have also scratches these are presumably minor scratches. its better if you purchase anew one. a damaged cd with deep scratches can damage the lense of your cd rom if you continously use this it would soon permanently damaged the lens
First thing to try is use a can of compressed air and blow that into the area of the lens from many angles.
If that doesn't work you'll have to open up the PS2 and try a more direct version of the former.
If not then email me and I will get to work on making a "youtube" video for it.
