    Hey! So I bet this is common for PS2 Slim, anyway.

    Every Time I insert a Disc into my system, when going to read the disc, it grinds when attempting to read and then fails to read, however when closing the lid, and opening it, I notice the laser can still move back and forth without a disc, but with a disc, it makes a grinding sound, assuming hen moving the laser. The Disc is spinning but I don't thin the laser can read the disc, so is this problem on the rail moving the laser? If so, how can I fix this?

    Lens prolly needs cleaning or it' busted.

    I'd FMCB it and run games off the USB port or Ethernet port uf I were you.

    yeah, tried cleaning the lens, still the same issue, I'll probably get a preoaded FMCB memory card online.
