Question DVDROM problems for Version 3 PS2

sponsored links
I hear a clicking noise in my version 3 ps2,When system is on, it clicks, won't read the DVD nor CD, is there a way to repair it, replace the laser or drive? Anything would help. Thank you.

Yep, as Dave2986 says its more than likely a dirty laser lens.
They click because they can't focus on the disc surface because of a dirty lens so they presume there isn't a disc in the machine!
Give it a clean and try again mate! If it still clicks post back..
