My ps2 slim is scratching my discs

In the past couple of months my ps2 has started to put big ring scratches around the discs and it keeps thinking the door is open. What could be the problem.

Sometimes the Ps2 system can leave light circles or rings around your disk. It's the laser constantly reading the disk as the disk goes around. It could be from excessive use of that one game. I don't think it should bring harm. Also, Are you mistaking the light rings for scratches or are there scratch marks on your disk(s) as well?

for one of my games I had it in my ps2 for not even 10 minutes(the day I bought it) and the scratch was there.  it is always in the same location that is a 1/4 inch in from the out side edge and about a 1/64 inch deep

Somebody fixed this problem by turning their ps2 upright instead of laying down plat
