My silver slim line Playstation 2 isn't working correctly.
I've had it for just over 7 months, bought it brand new from Amazon.
It's become (overnight) very noisy. Like an electric fan, not completely continuous noise, a bit broken. Sounds like it's struggling from the moment it switches on.
I tried to play San Andreas; it wouldn't get past the title sequence.
Then tried to play FF8. It worked (slowly and with lots of noise/effort) but the fight scenes were extremely slow to load. Then after a couple of fight scenes it froze.
Hasn't worked since.

From experience i would say you have bought a wonderful game! Well if you have been playing it for a while you might have gotten a scratch on it. A little trick that i learned was to lush it in the toilet. This may not seem like its going to work but i have done this maybe 7 times and every time it has worked. Another thing you could do if its brand new, is to bring it in to the store you bought it from and ask specificly for a trade in as your game isnt working properly. And any data you may have used should be saved on your play station.
Okay, are you using the original PS2? If you are then it more then likely is the age of the console. The original PS2 console actually can't play some of the games that were made after the PS2 slim was released. If your using the slim than the only thing i can advise is to try using a laser lens cleaner disc and see if that helps :)
Is this a new problem or has your PS2 always had this issue?
You cannot adjust the laser at all and are likely to damage it if you try, you can however clean the laser lens with a CD/DVD cleaning disk and you'd be surprised how often this resolves disk read issues.
Some of these units did have a production fault that prevented them from reading DVD's, if your PS2 has had this fault since new and/or is under 12 months old you could probably have had it repaired/replaced by Sony but by opening it you will have invalidated you're warranty.
