My ps2 won't play games or movies.
whenever i insert the disk, it goes in the machine, and spins a little. then, there is a sort of 'very fast repeated clicking noise', which i think is caused by the white gear at the back. i have not yet opened the mahine, as i am scared of breaking it.
i understand that it is 10+ years old, but i was using it only about a month ago. i have tried cleaning dust from controllers, memory cards, disk tray, vents, even inside the disk-compartment-thing, but this hasn't worked. i am certain that this is not a laser problem, as i was watching a video of someone fix their disk tray, which involved moving the white gear at the back. the gear made the same clicking noise as the one i heard, but slower because they were turning it manually. the machine tells me that it is reading disks, but is clearly unable to do so. please help.
