Make sure that the disc is placed all the way in the spindle. Check to make sure the disk isn't scratched or damaged.

On switch button turns green and immediatley turns off again. My disc in the beggining stoped spinning eventhough i can here it trying to spin


Can you hear the fan spinning on the inside of the PS2? If the PS2 comes on, loads the disc, then shuts itself off, chances are it is overheating and shuts off to prevent damage. There is a small fan on the inside of the Slim PS2 that keeps it cool.

If you press the reset switch and it goes from red to green and immediately back to red without ever turning on, your motherboard is shot. ESD damage.

Disc wont spin


There are 4 reasons a disc won't spin on the Slim PSP. The most common is a failed laser.

1. Failed laser -- the disc will not spin up to speed, or not spin at all, due to a bad laser. If you close the PS2 with no disc inside, the ps2 will never spin the disc. If you chose the PS2 with a disc inside but a bad laser, it still thinks no disc is inside and will not spin.

2. Lid closed sensors. There are two of them. One on the motherboard and one on the reset switch. These sensors let the PS2 know that the lid is closed. If one or both of these break, the disc will never spin because the PS2 will think the lid is still open.

3. Damaged case. If the case of the PS2 is damaged, the two parts of the lid that are supposed to press the lid-closed sensors will never press them.

My PS2 Slim will play some games but not others. These are all legit games, not pirated. God of War 2 worked last week, it does not work now. DDR still works fine. It seems to spin up, I hear a few faint...


I know this sounds basic and simple, but a ticking noise "generally" is just the disc tapping on the base, make sure the disc is (1) not warped at all (heat can do this for example) or (2) is pressed firmly on the eye. - Sometimes the most elusive answers are simplified with firepower and a good pair of jeans. - Mother Theresa
