    Do you have replacement PS2 gears and such around, and are you comfortable re-jigging a worm screw and glide rails?

    Your laser gear is likely wearing away. If that's what it is, you will need a new gear, plus a re-tuning so it doesn't eat the new gear as well.

    That failure cannot be repaired without parts.

    I can fix it, or I can buy it. http://www.oldschoolgamer.ca/information.aspx?SID=2

    By any chance is one of those games Lunar 2? I brought my copy of L2 over to a friends right after he got his PS2 and it made evil whirling, clicking sounds (sounded like a VROOOOM!!!!) I thought his PS2 was scratching the hell out of my disc, but it wasnt.

    No the games in question are

    Pro Pinball: Fantastic Journey
    Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX

    Edit: Also MTV's Celebrity Deathmatch Doesn't work.

    WWF Smackdown 2, and Knckout Kings 2000 work.

    I haven't tested my copy of PS1 Quake II yet.

    He needs a new lateral laser gear, and a re-jigging so it won't eat the replacement gear.

    I'd bet money on it. I do 3 of those per week.
