Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
My ps2 was working fine then I decided to play a ps1 game. Now it only plays ps1 games and whenever I try to play a ps2 game it makes a clicking noise every second. I also noticed that the disc is not spinning as fast when a ps2 game is in the system. Can anyone help me?
I love you pleystation 2

Boot up your PS2 with no disc in it. Press the Traingle and highlight the top selection. Press the triangle again and then press X then select ON and press X. This should turn on Diagnostics. Do not reboot the PS2, just put a PS2 disc in. This might get it reading PS2 discs again.
If this does work you can follow the procedure for cleaning below:
I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.

I have trash picked 2 of them and fixed this same problem. Just be prepared to spend some time and be patient. Clean the lens with glass cleaner. Under the lazer is a white gear it turn it two clicks clockwise and try a ps2 game. If it does not work turn it another 2 clicks. 4 clicks seems to be the magic number, after 4 clicks go only one click at a time until the game loads.This has worked numerous time for me. just keep track of how many clicks you do in case you want to bring it back to the original setting for some pointless reason. Good luck.
