    My PS2 does the same thing, stand the PS2 up on it's left side, that gets it to read discs for me.

Could be a number of things... open the door and see if the belt that drives the door is jammed or even the driving motor. that would create a buzz.

    ok id say either something is limiting the range of movement of the lens.. it sounds like maybe something is stuck in there. when it moves do you hear like a dragging sound or maybe a clicking like somethings getting jammed?

My system plays cd's dvd's but when i put a ps3 game in the disc wont show therefor im not allowed to play any games by disc


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

My playstaion 2 wont play any discs


The eye in the tray might be scratched or damaged. This happens with age and the way the Playstation has been setting as well. It is more likely to wear out faster when it is standing upright. Try to play a movie or a game with the playstation in the horizontal way. If not the eye could possibly be damaged beyond repair.

Ps2 wont play DVDs


Your PS2 laser is wearing out. When the laser starts to go, first games will skip... then eventually the PS2 will stop reading DVDs altogether. If you keep using it to read CDs, it will eventually stop reading those too and the laser will die altogether. Here's a website that will help you identify your PS2 model, show you how to replace the laser, and they sell parts and do repairs too

Playstation wont start up the game.


Does the system boot? Have you tried CD (blue or black discs) or DVD (silver discs)?

If the system is booting and giving the disc read error then trysetting the machine on it's side, standing vertical. I have a machine that will only read discs in this stance.

You can also try to clean the laser assembly unit or manually adjust the assembly to help it focus because it has gotten near sighted. I've personally never had any luck with the manual adjustment.

Need help with playstation slimline console not spinning disks when case is on


i dont understand why you could fix a problem by taking its shell off but... its possible the case was dislodged when it was on and put itself into a position where it impacted on the insides of the ps2. e.g pushing the laser out of place.

If you have your playstation 2 standing upright it may be this tht ios causing the problem as the disc will not be correctly line up with the laser that reads the disc this could also cause scratchs on the discs, its best to have the playstation 2 in the downright postition.

Disc reading error


Open the Case.
Clean the lens with Q-tip and Alcohol. This is only if you have the SCPH-30000 through 5000X models. If you have the Slim Ps2 do not use Alcohol on the lens. Use Glass cleaner instead.
