Ps2 works fine except for spindle motor not working.The laser beam on the laser unit is not visible, but the laser head tracks up and down and the laser moves back and forth.
I have checked the resistors where the diode fix is placed, they all test fine. I traced the tracks from the spindle motor to the rs2004f and they are all intact. Please help
Best Solution: Purchase a cronit wire (the blue type, not green) from RadioShack for about $3. Unplug the unit & remove the back cover. At the lower left side - locate the Parker-laser mechanism. Splice one end of the cronit wire and attach it to the source then connect it to the center module (if no port is available - piggy back it onto another blue cronit wire) you'll see.

It sounds like the laser assembly has become faulty, the clicking you hear may be the sled mechanism trying to move and put the laser into place so that it can read the game, or could be the spindle motor trying to spin the disc for the laser to read it. My recommendation is to replace the whole laser assembly, which includes the sled mechanism as well as the spindle motor and laser. Good Luck.
If your spindle has stopped spinning, it will most likely be 1 of 2 problems. Either your spindle motor has burnt up, or even though it is very unlike, a lead wire that supplies the power to the spindle has became disconnected. Now, if the case it the burnt up spindle motor, there are hundreds of motors for every kind of PS on, of course, E-Bay. If the problem is for some reason, a soldered wire has broken from the motor. It is very simple to re-attach the lead with a quick touch from a soldering iron. I hope this has helped.
Your lazer lense has bit the dust. Depending on your model type the first gen systems lazers are very easy to replace. The later versions sony made it harder to replace. You can find out what model you have by looking at the back of your PS2 then you can either call sony or go to there website and find out what generation PS2 you have. Then go from there. Hope this helps
sounds like a faulty spindle. this is the part that spins your cd for the laser to read. if your using a fat ps2 its prolly the spindle. if your using a slim ps2 it could be the laser causing the problem not the spindle. the slim ps2 laser make the spindle work. if the laser isnt working right the cd might not spin or it might not spin fast enough or flat enough.
just because you see read doesn't mean the laser is good. the laser has to read the toc (table of contents) for it to read the toc it must be at the beginning, it must be at the right depth from lens to cd and the spindle must spin. now if you have to spin the spindle that means it most like is not reaching the beginning of the cd or the spindle motor is bad.
did you try putting the laser reader in your origional lazers place? you might have forgotten a connection, but other than that, im not shure why that would happen unless you broke the connector, or the connector somehow comes undone after you close the ps2 back up. also, have you tried it when you have a cd in it with the safety mechanisms overrided? it should rest in the full out position when you turn it off while a cd is playing in the last track. and just to clarify, is the spindle the linear actuator that moves the lazer head or the thing that turns the cd?
