Ps2 only reading discs if not pressed firmly into disc drive

When I put both ps1 and ps2 games onto the ps2 (fat) disc drive, it seems to read them only if I lightly place them onto the tray. If I put the discs on more firmly so they are deeper into the tray, the ps2 will make the same clicking noises as it would if it read them when the disc was placed lightly onto it, but just continuously click with no success. What could be causing the clicking/inability to read discs when placed in a certain manner? And are any discs at risk?

Does the tray look damaged? Warped or cracked, for example? If not, it's more than likely a laser issue.

Might be time to replace your PS2, either way.
