Greenie is right with this one. You should seek repairs or replace the entire console.

It seems there has been a malfunction within your CD Drive, this is what is causing the CD drive to not spin or read the disc. these problems can be only generally resolved by either getting the console repaired/replaced unfortunately.

The PS2 will still turn on and run because the CD Drive does not dictate whether the console works or not, but because the CD Drive is broken, you will not be able to play games or watch DVD Films unless you have the CD Drive Repaired.

Hope this Helps ?!

If you have removed the cover and cleaned the glass laser eye lens unit, then the laser lens motor is faulty.

Disks wont spin on new laser


Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.

Disk wont spin


First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.

Disc won't spin,


If your PS2 slim console is chipped for playing fake games then try it by replacing the modification IC otherwise replace the lens with new one and your problem should be solved.

New game won't play.


the problem with god of war 2 is the ps2 lasers are not capable of reading the dual layer disks. either wait and get a ps3, change the laser - i just bought on for 3 quid on e bay brand new. the lasers are not designed to be played the amount they are played. the laser is designed to play 20 hours a week but as sony found out he avg gamer will clock up up tp 60 hours a week so the lasers are only lasting 1/3rd of the time they should. plus if they put a good laser in the machine u would one buy 1 ps2 and then 1 ps3. i have burned out 3 ps2's so far lol. just forget the game or wait till its put on platinum as these are single layerd disk
