This is a classic sympton of a worn and/or dirty laser, What mode is the console? Some models are well known for this problem, May require laser clean and service or laser replacement or calibration, It really needs inspection first to assess the problem and find the best solution.

Grim is not right on that one. You can have your PS2 relearn by using the diagnostics feater from browser. Boot it up, press Triangle to get options on version. Press Traingle again to get to diagnostic and press X. Select on. Press X again. Try your PS2 Discs. If not working, open the ps2, gain access to the laser and Clean the lens.If you still have probalems check out www.playstationclinic.com for help.

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.

Formatting

Hi,

By formatting a disk, your actually creating a Blank-Disk.

The PS2 won,t read a blank disk.

is your console Saying " disk format Unknown "

This is a completely different Issue.

In this case, the PS2 does not play this type of Disk.

Playstation2 disc error

I can't be for sure, but I believe it's just the lens. What happens is when you put scratched discs into the system, the lens "self-destructs" itself attempting to read the scratches. Hope this helps!
