Re: grinding noise

Clean the dust out of the fan,,check and make sure fan is clearing the metal grid it sits on. also,,clean and lube the slider shafts that the laser rides on. use only a drip or 2 on each shaft and use hair clipper oiil or sewing machine oil.

My ps2 is making a grinding noise and is not reading any discs, the discs hardly spin but when they do it grinds loudly. Im willing to take apart the ps2 to fix this, please help.

Hi mattr486!

Sadly it sounds like your disk lense has been damaged beyond repair. The only way to fix your PS2 is by getting tech support or ordering the replacement parts and repairing it yourself (not recommended).

Sorry if i can't be of further assistance.

Grinding noise, ps2 scratching disks and freezing.

Thats the lazer head getting too close to the dvd's, means that it either needs proper cleaning with a good quality dvd cleaning disk and solution, or needs to be replaced.

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 ,

Not loading game

the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.

Grinding noise when playing Premier Manager 2008

If your not getting the same problem with other games and you have cleaned the laser lens then it's going to be down to a faulty disk. The store you purchased the game from should replace it for you or you can have it replaced by Zoo Digital but this involves sending the disk to them and can be time consuming.
