Re: ps2 - stops reading disc
There is a little wheel type thing that the cd sits on when it goes into the drive, the wheel makes the cd spin, these often wear out , after you play it for 27 mins the device heats up which causes it to slip , which would most likely be the noise that you can hear , it wont cost you much at all to get this fixed at a game console service store, if your sure the cd is still spinning after 27 mins , and making the noise , it is the laser cog slipping , in this case it is best to replace the whole laser section, which is one part , and if your handy at things like that i suggest you just go and buy the laser reader from a game console repair store , and swap it over your self , it is pritty simple to do ,

it's dirty. that's all there is too it. your whole system is dirty if you haven't cleaned it. try cleaning it with spray-air or whatever you have in your stores. and if you've kept cleaning it try cleaning the laser.
It sounds like the laser assembly has become faulty, the clicking you hear may be the sled mechanism trying to move and put the laser into place so that it can read the game, or could be the spindle motor trying to spin the disc for the laser to read it. My recommendation is to replace the whole laser assembly, which includes the sled mechanism as well as the spindle motor and laser. Good Luck.
thats because sony was *** and stopped making ps3's that could read ps2 discs. so in other words you cant. the said "they didnt see it was fit for it to have to play games." a load of **** i say! they were just losing money for having a blueray, dvd, and ps2 reading machine. so they decided to take out ps2 and not dvd? i dont get it cause we can rip dvd's to play as a video file, and then play it from that. sony doesnt think right i dont think, sorry. but you are out of luck
If you are in North America, you PS2 will not play PAL formatted disks. (NTSC is what is used here). You would need a modded PS2 to play the game. If you can get your money back, I would recommend that. If not, then you might want to try to sell it on eBay.
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
it would be probably cheaper to buy a second hand unit off your local paper as ps2 is old and there is plenty of people selling theses units to get ps3 etc. A call to your local computer gaming shop might turn up a cheap unit. As the replacement price would be more
