    Do you get a scratch on the disk in a near perfect ring shape all the way around?

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.

Every time i turn it on it will make a grinding noise ant it wont stop


If the grinding noise occurs while you have a disc inside then it could be the len rubbing against the Cd. This problem normally happens in Slim Line editions of playstation2's. If the disc is blue coated, the playstation2's lens finds it hard to read the disc. Resulting in the lens moving closer to the disc. This is avoidable, try standing up your playstation. Or avoiding Blue coated disc.

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.


Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

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.

360 grinding noise and unplayable disc


Crack open the DVD case and see whats going on and try fixing it yourself. OR Buy a new drive off of eBay and transfer the firmware key over from the old drive too the new one.

Loud noise while agitating in wash cycle


If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.
