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.

I can hear the motor spinning but the disk doesn't spin can anyone help


spinner isnt spinning as it should. make sure that there is no short circuiting in your ps2, as this would make some of your parts of the ps2 mess up.

Won't play discs.


Hi Crashley41,

You Laser must be burned out. Since it doesn't play any discs, I believe you have a melted laser. In this case, your disc should not spin either. You need a new laser. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" in the next Screen. Pick a good Repair shop dedicated to Playstations. You can probably get a good deal on getting your Playstation working top notch again. Good Luck

Sony2 slimline model scph-70002


Hi gollywog,

The laser not moving sounds like the connection from the motor that moves the laser to the motherboard has become dsiconected. You can usually get movement of the laser, and the only reason is something is wrong with the motor or its connection to the motherboard.
