Ps2 slim will not spin disk i have cleaned everything inside everything seems to be working normally yet the disk wont spin


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

Disc wont spin


There are 4 reasons a disc won't spin on the Slim PSP. The most common is a failed laser.

1. Failed laser -- the disc will not spin up to speed, or not spin at all, due to a bad laser. If you close the PS2 with no disc inside, the ps2 will never spin the disc. If you chose the PS2 with a disc inside but a bad laser, it still thinks no disc is inside and will not spin.

2. Lid closed sensors. There are two of them. One on the motherboard and one on the reset switch. These sensors let the PS2 know that the lid is closed. If one or both of these break, the disc will never spin because the PS2 will think the lid is still open.

3. Damaged case. If the case of the PS2 is damaged, the two parts of the lid that are supposed to press the lid-closed sensors will never press them.

Ps2 not reading discs(disc arent even spinning)


Well, This has happened to me before. If you are insistent that you do not have to replace it, then see if a friend has an old ps2 he or she doesn't use anymore, because your motor is dead. Its not going to spin, and you need a whole new drive portion of the ps2. basically, your disk wont spin, and the laser wont read it. honestly, right now, Gamestop is selling ps2's for like 40$. you should just go buy a new one.

PS2 disk not playing


Go to www.PlaystationClinic.com The Laser optics may be misaligned or signals from the laser is restricted in some way or another. If the laser does not detect the disc, and send the signal to the Disc Processor, the motor will not spin.

Disc doesnt spin , the lens dont move up and down , only lights red


Sounds like a motor issue, not a laser issue.

PS2 not reading disks


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

Disc won't spin after replacing laser


Have you replaced the laser yourself? before installing it you should remove a soldered joint on the laser, it is just like two points soldered together, just desolder that and put it back, it will work. Good luck

Laser Wont fire


I had the very same problem with my ps2. What I had found was that I had indeed gotten a nonfunctioning laser. After I installed another new laser, the system functions without any problem. I hope this information helps you.

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.
