My ps2 won't read any of my disks.At first, it started where I had to try a couple of times to get it to read the disc, then it kept taking more tries to make the disc read. Now it doesn't read the discs at all. If this helps it also makes a clicking noise and that has started since it has stopped reading discs.

Your PS2 lens is displaced from its original position that is what scratching your Discs and makes weird noises too.There can possibly be another reason for them ,your PS2's reading lens is dirty and it is covered by a layer of dust that scratches your Discs and makes sounds too. You should first clean the lens of your PS2 watch this video to know how to clean your PS2's lens:
Disk read errors are mainly due to dirty or worn out lens,so clean your PS2's lens to get rid of this problem and as for that sound that will get fixed by cleaning lens if still it makes that sound then you will have to take your PS2 to repairer to set the lens height. Thank you!
Sounds like you need to get your money back ..the resurfaceing can also do more bad than good But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way

What you probably have is a disc read error, if you don't want to get a new system first you can always open it and repair yourself but that voids the warranty but is voided after the 30th day, I have tried it a few times in the past and it works but is time consuming and if your not careful you can break it beyond use. But if you're brave read this article. http://arstechnica.com/articles/paedia/hardware/ps2.ars
Are you using a real game disk or are you using a burned disk? If its burned you need a MOD chip for it. If its real then try to open up the PS2 and try to clean the lens gently with a q-tip. It helped me a couple of times.
