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.

Long Loads and Lagging


A couple things come to mind. If the lens is dirty, then there will certainly be issues with load times, or load failure. Check your game discs for scratches and scuffs. If a disc has a scratch or too many scuffs on it, it will make it difficult for the laser to read.
Clean your discs, and clean your ps2 lens with a basic ps2 laser cleaning kit. You should be able to find them anywhere.
I don't recommend cleaning the lens without a kit if you are not familiar with the internals of a PS2 or cleaning electronic components. If after cleaning your disc and lens it still gives you issues, there is an angle adjustment gear in the ps2, but we'll cross that bridge only if the cleaning doesn't work.

try checking the game for scratches and fix accordingly...the system wouldnt hurt to be cleaned as well, just remember to use an air canister.

Had ps1 game resurfaced, no longer works on ps2


Sounds like you need to get your money back ..the resurfaceing can also do more bad than good
But a little trick lightly rub a crayon over the disk ,,old pantyhose works great rub it off from center out then try your disk ,,have saved many good games that way

Freezing


This is usually the cause of a dirty disk and/or reading lens. If you bought different consoles and disks, this may be a result of unforunate coincedences.
Another thing that people dont know about however, is that video game creators will make the game faulty on purpose, to make it freeze, JUST before you get to the end of the game, this is so you will stay interested and buy more of their games.
Also, you may have a fan problem, after the game freezes, check and see if the ps2 is hot, it may be over heated.
Try unplugging it for 24 hours, then retry.
Have a good night

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.

My game freezes at the same spot every time


First step should be to change the game by the new one (or clean the disc). If this still not help please advice.
