The disc spins but doesn't show anything. It goes straight to the browser and system configuration screen. It acts like there's no disc in it.

When I insert a PS2 disc and power on the browser/system configuration menu is displayed rather than loading the game. It doesn't look like the disc spins at all. I haven't tried a CD or DVD but have tried...


Check to see if the top lid is closed correctly. Probably one of the small locks on front of it has broken off and the Playstation 2 wont spin the disc. Check to see if they are intact as well. If this is not the problem then you should probably call the PlayStation 2 Support Line, or just call up Sony.

PS2 goes strait to "configuration" and the disc not spining.


Your lens or motor are dead. However, I am thinking that it is the motor. If it is on warranty, call Sony. They should fix it. If not, take it apart, and plug a 3v current into the drive. + = red, - = black. If it is dead, get a replacement from a website like eBay.

Ps 2 disc wont turn


I had this same issue with my PS2, honestly I think it was something to do with the laser eye reader that reads the disc, when it is dirty the disc won't even spin or attempt to read it.

you can either take an air compressor and when the ps2 is off, have the disc tray open and blow the dust out of it.

Or, i personally would take the ps2 apart and clean the diode itself with some rubbing alcohol. Just don't void your warranty or somehow break it.

PS2 Slim Will Not Read Games


HI Pepper,

You need to try clenaing the Laser Lens. This is done by Using Q-tip and a window cleaner like Windex. Lightly Dampen one end of the Q-Tip and swab the lens with a slight bit of aggression. Use the Dry end of the swab to dry the lens. Try it out. Also you could have your laser gear popped out. look at the long worm gear to be sure it is stuck in the black holder. This should help you. In the unfortunate event it does not, you probably need a new laser. I do think you will get it working becasue you hear the Disc spinning. If the Laser was really dead, the disc would not spin as in it cannot tell the computer the laser sees a disc. Does the same thing as though no disc is in the drive bay. Contact me at Repairtech@PlaystationClinic.com if you need service.
