Actually the clicking means that the laser guide arm is slipping over the worm gear that moves the laser. You can replace it or bend the one you have back in place.

Your lasers on the way out.
it,s all to do with the power output of the laser head, and the angle for reading the 2 different disk types.
i,d suggest getting a new laser fitted. not too expensive usually with older consoles. Try E-Bay :)
