i would suggest you to take it to a game shop where they sale fake games and ask them you want your ps2 to get " Chipped " they should understand it. if they dont just say you want your ps2 to play fake games.
You can "chip" the ps2 to play pirated games.
Try a local area internet search for people offering the "chipping" service.
It is usually pretty cheap ( i found 4 people within 30kms of me offering to do it for under $50 )
Get real disks. Fake disks won't work with the approved PS2 software, only a true Sony PS2 or PS1 game will be read by the system. Otherwise, your going to need to install a totally new system onto the PS2 over the original OP. It's a lot cheaper and simpler to just play the real games.
Try to send it back to the seller. The original Playstation (or PS1) is pretty old - like over 10 years old. That's a long time for a video game console to last; especially it it ever got used alot. I hope that you did not pay much for it. I personally wouldn't buy anything that old unless I had alot of PS1 games laying around that I loved to play. If you can't return your PS1 for a refund, then I would suggest buying a PS2; if you're not in the market for a PS3. There are tons of games out for the PS2 and they still occasionally make new games for the PS2. You can find new or used PS2 consoles at Game Stop, Walmart, Meijer, eBay, & etc.
In order to play copied games, you will first have to mod your PS2. To avoid piracy, much of the necessary info on the original disc will be omitted during the copy phase. When you "mod" or put in a new chip, The PS2 can now bi-pass this info and continue to the game. Regardless of the type of PS2 you have, you must put in a mod chip to read back-ups.
That clicking noise you are hearing is the laser trying to read the disk. There are a few reasons why this is not happening. Either your laser is dirty and needs to be cleaned, or your laser is damaged and can no longer read the games.
I strongly recommend cleaning your laser and making sure your games are clean as well. Keep your ps2 in a ventalated area.
If this does not work, you may have to have your ps2 repaired. If it is not covered by your warranty, you will probably save money in buying a new system. It will most likely cost more to get it repaired.
I hope this was able to fixya problem and Happy Gaming!
This is the most common problem with any ps2 the only thing you can try is cleaning the laser lense its best to use an actual lense cleaner in the form of a disk. As it only reads compact disks this does mean your laser is on the way out but try cleaning lense and try again but you might find the problem remains. The problem with you ps2 the slim one is that you cant adjust the laser the older bigger ps2 had a dial on the back of the laser tray that you could turn and adjust the height of the laser doing this got a couple more months usage out of the ps but the slimer one doesnt have this dial as they used newer lasers that couldnt be adjusted in anyway. If cleaning doesnt make the ps2 any better then you need to replace the laser but the problem you have with this is if you buy a new laser its easy enough to fit yourself but buying a new laser means its going to need calibrating this isnt something you can do yourself unless you have an osciloscope to use on the board at test points these cost about $1000 to buy and if you get someone else to fit and calibrate they will charge more than the price of a new ps2 so its not financially worth doing. The cheapest option is buying a second hand slimline ps2 that dont work but the laser is fine then you could transfer the laser without calibrating it but you need to be carefull and make sure the lasers are the same else it wont work at all. Then the problem you will find is you do the repair then say 2 months down the line you get another problem this costing more money again. What i would do but its upto you is just buy new ps2 knowing its working and is going to last a while the new ones now have better lasers and seem to last for ages ive had mine for years now and had no problem. But i have got a slimline ps2 that dont work with same problem but what ill do is keep checking auction sites untill i can pick up cheap ps2 that dont work and replace any parts i need you can usually by damaged ps2 for about £10 including delivery but i repair them and sell them to make a bit of money but as you only want maybe one then theirs a risk involved not knowing if its going to work after the repair i suggest buy new one. Sorry ive gone on a bit but thought it best if i give you all the info ok
does it still read the disk you was playing or not if it dont then you could buy a lense cleaner put this into you ps2 and then after it has cleaned the lense try your games again you can buy these really cheap and they are just a disk with little brushes onn that cleans the lense in anything that takes disks if this dont solve the problem and the ps2 dont play any disk at all then the laser will need replacing you can replace it yourself but it will need to be recalibrated witch is something a pro must do as not doing this will stop it reading any disk but you only get this prob if you buy new laser you can get second hand ones but you never no if they are working or not hope this is some help to you
