Laser issue is a commom problem on the ps2.The laser actually is controlling the spinning as well on ps2 machine and on the new ps3 too.
When the disk start, the spinner receive a kick back from the laser and after then that start the normal operation.
If the laser don`t send any impulse to the spinner the machine recognize a danger situation ang go on protection and stop the spinning process.
Replacing your laser will certanly solve your problem.

Cd does not spin when you activate conole ps2


It's possible the disc drive has died or somehow became unplugged. If you can get someone to look at it, they might be able to fix it, but it would probably be cheaper to buy a new one.

Husband has a ps2 controller that works when it feels like it


Sorry, I didn't quite understand the question, so are you actually using the wireless PS2 controller on the PS3?? Or it is for the PS2??
When i had a PS2, I brought a 'Logitech' controller for it and it worked well for about 6months, then after that the analogues started playing up and going funny. Same thing with the 'MadCats' PS2 contorller.
Now I have a PS3, and I just brought a new SONY PS3 Dual shock controller and works perfect. The logitech one is half the price, but i trust Sony more than other brands coz it is more reliable. I dunno if this helps, but if you're willing to spend abit more it's actually worth it.
You can check on eBay for an original PS2/3 controller which would cheaper than buying one in the stores.
Cheers~
