It spins and clicks but doesnt read


It's good that it still spins as that rules out motor problems. I read lots of advice about cleaning the lens etc which rarely soves the problem. Look I've been repairing these Playstations for years a clicking noise tells us that the unit cannot focus correctly to read the disc. These laser units are not that reliable. It is unlikely to be broken but the PS2 will need to be opened and the DVD potentiometer will need adjusting about one eigth of a turn clockwise which increases the frequency of the laser thus ensure discs are readable once more. You should find plenty of tutorials on the web for this. Professionally an oscilloscope would be used to adjust the laser to a specified frequency accurately. I've adjusted these for years and get it right 99% of the time.
Slimline Ps2 while space saving and aesthetically pleasing had PSU heat problems with the early releases which caused all kinds of instabiliy issues. Hope yours is a newer one.

Ps2 game won't spin


Try clening it. Tilt the ps2 on it's side so that you can see the disc, then spin the disc manually . Now, turn on the ps2. If it doesn't work, get a new game.
