Try other discs. If it continues, you may have a bad laser, if not, it's probably just a scratched, or otherwise bad disc.

You might just try cleaning the dvd drive, this is a common problem with the playstation 2, You can buy a dvd player cleaner at walmart. It will also do it when you put a PS2 game backup disc (burned copy) in it. If cleaning does not work you can realign the laser. Its a easy fix, just checkout this site http://www.g4techtv.com/xplay/featur...Error_Fix.html

I hope that this helps
