My playstation 2 makes a weird clicky sound when I try to play some of my dvds or games and sometimes it comes up with disk error or unable to read disk and its a brand new disk

Your PS2 lens is displaced from its original position that is what scratching your Discs and makes weird noises too.There can possibly be another reason for them ,your PS2's reading lens is dirty and it is covered by a layer of dust that scratches your Discs and makes sounds too.
You should first clean the lens of your PS2 watch this video to know how to clean your PS2's lens:

Disk read errors are mainly due to dirty or worn out lens,so clean your PS2's lens to get rid of this problem and as for that sound that will get fixed by cleaning lens if still it makes that sound then you will have to take your PS2 to repairer to set the lens height.
Thank you!

How to Clean PS2 laser lens. Older PS2
  • Step 1 Check the lens-cleaning disk. It is important that it is free from dirt or debris. If its dirty, the disk can damage the laser lens on the Playstation 2.
  • Step 2 Press the Playstation 2 open button. Insert the lens-cleaning disk in the tray and close.
  • Step 3 Wait roughly 10 seconds for the disk to read. The brushes on the lens disk will clean the laser.
    New Slim PS2
  • Step 1 Unhook the PS2 from the outlet and the TV. If the power cord has a connection to the outlet, damage can occur.
  • Step 2 Dip a cotton swab into an alcohol bottle. Open the lid of the PS2 with the button.
  • Step 3 Use the cotton swab to rub the lens. Gently brush the laser lens with the cotton swab, covering the entire area.
  • Step 4 Wait about an hour for the laser to dry

  • I had this same issue with my Older style PS2 and I had to take it apart and manually clean the lens. It worked perfectly after that. I was extremely nervous opening up my system, but if it didn't work I was willing to take the chance.

    Here is a link on someone taking a ps2 apart.

    My ps2 is broken

    okay, are you saying you can't watch DvDs ? I would highly recomend not watching DvD's on PS2, especially HD movies. The PS2 does not have the hardrive to read most movies perfectly.

    Error 80028f17

    Error 80028f17 is a boot error and there is nothing you can really do about it, the disk is corrupted or burned (illegal copy) of the game. If it is legit, go back to the store and ask for another copy as it doesn't work.
