PlayStation 2 making strange noise while playing games

It will start out fine then as you go further along. The sound that it makes sounds like a cogged gears not meshing or something. Sometimes this will effect game play, sometimes it wont. Sound will sometime go out, sometimes it wont. Also it will make this sound when you first power up the unit and put a disk in the tray. Suggestions or ideas on what could be the problem?

My PS2 Slim will play some games but not others. These are all legit games, not pirated. God of War 2 worked last week, it does not work now. DDR still works fine. It seems to spin up, I hear a few faint...

I know this sounds basic and simple, but a ticking noise "generally" is just the disc tapping on the base, make sure the disc is (1) not warped at all (heat can do this for example) or (2) is pressed firmly on the eye. - Sometimes the most elusive answers are simplified with firepower and a good pair of jeans. - Mother Theresa

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.

Playstation 2 comsole making strange noises

there is this kind of disc that has little brushes on it for cleaning lens in dvd players, cd players, computers, basicly anything with disc player of some sort and it works great for PS2s (I have used it on mine and my freind's.) I can't remember the name of my cd now now and I can't find it but you can probley find one in most computer stores or wal-marts. but it is posible that the there is something wrong with the motor/gear assebley in the drive on your ps2 (which the cd wouldn't fix) but that is probly not the case since it plays games alright. Good Luck! I Hope You Get The Problem Fixed!!
