PS2 Slim 77001 wont work properly

Okay, it has nothing to do with the laser for I just installed a completely new one. When I put in an audio CD it works fine, however when a PSX game goes in it gives the "Put a real disk in" error and when I put a PS2 game in it acts like its working, tries to load up but before anything loads up it goes back to the browser where is shows the ps2 game disk. When you try to load it it does the exact same thing.

Sounds like you need to adjust your lens is all you need to do. there is lots of howto guides on this online if you would like I can dig it up for you. because ushally if one works but not the other then the lazer just has come out of alignment

Yes the problem is the laser. It's on its way out (and is almost completely out). You can find a new laser for the 77001 console at the following page. They also sell the completely laser assembly which includes all moving parts in there:

Can't play dual layered disk in playstation slim silver


I know, this is very annoying. Mine is SCPH-79001.
Just put in the game like you would any game (that would read) and you should hear a few ticks. Turn the ps2 horizontly with the front facing you. And whenever you hear a tick, just tap it against you knee, then you should hear it spinning.

My ps2 wouldn't read GH world tour or metallica, but know it works. Hope I helped

PS2 wont read FFXII


Something has to be different between FFXII and another PS2 game. This could be color of the media side, or it could be CD or DVD format. Most likely it is CD format and your CD laser diode is failing. Try a Music CD to see if it will work. If it is a PS2 slim, I suggest a new laser.

Ps2 slim problems reading disc


After countless hours of tying to figure this out I went to the basics. This ps2 slim has 3 sensors and after all sensors are the key to making the machine work properly. After testing everything known to man I decided to go around the sensors by taping them all down. Low and behold when I cranked the ps2 slim up the disc now reads and plays perfectly.

Hi Jaybs,

The disc will not spin if the laser canot read the disc. you may have a dead laser or bad ribbon cable that runs from the Laser to the motherboard. I am posting a procedure to clean the lasers lens. I hope you do not have the Slim model, as this procedure is for the older Big size PS2. You do not use Alcohol on the lens of a Slim PS2 ,it tends to haze over the lens.

I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the Reset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Remove the CD tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the CD area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. Remove the little white disc from the CD tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and you’re in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to a Repair shop. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. then choose "Video Game Consoles". Then you pick a Good Repair shop. My shop is listed, but I cannot divulge the name in this forum. Cost will be $25 plus shipping. Shipping is usually $8.95 to the USA

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.
