My playstation one worked fine when I used it from the last 10 years that I didn't use it and I started having problems with the System because when I put a game on it. It turns on fine but then it ta

seems to be the newer version of the the psONE so i will say to get a CD cleaner first to try to fix the problem. if that fails, consider replacing the laser unit. ti make sure the laser is even working, stick a pen or something into the lid switch and look to see if you cna see a red laser beaming out. dont look straight into it though.(obviously) if you see nothing, or the motor doesnt spin, you have a problem with the whole CD/Motor unit.

The ps3 will not play any games,but the power comes on

The most likely culprit is that your laser has failed. Usual symptoms are before complete failure usually hard to play and type of disk. Might play cds but not blu ray or may play cd but not dvd then one day nothing plays and the drive may not even spin up. Its a pretty simple fix for around $50 order the correct laser for your console and then its basically a simple process go to youtube and search ps3 laser fix and you will see many step by step videos that show how to do it.Just need a small tip phillips a larger phillips screw driver and a #10 torx head screw driver.Ebay has good deals on new lasers just make sure you get the one for your particualr model ps3 as there are 3 laser for different drives.Your console model will let you know usually starts like chech on sticker on the back of console

Install a CD and it says open tray after spinup of disk

Your DVD drive's laser either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Getting a new drive would work also.

Can't read any disck. doesn't even seem to recognize a disc is there

You have no choice other than contacting Sony and sending it in. Its worth it if you have the 60gb model, which is the highest value of all models, due to true backwards and full features.

Ps2 disc wont spin and laser wont come on

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 ?!

Unit cannot read the DVD-ROM

First, reset the system. Hold down the power button (blue/green) on the front of the console for about 10 secs, until it beeps. This will reset your system, keeping all previous settings in tact.

If this does not work, be sure to test the drive with a BlueRay movie, listen to the drive when inserting a disk to hear if it spins up initially. If you have a downloaded game or demo, does it work. The more information you can bring to a problem the greater the chance to getting a fix.

Ps2 slim line

if the laser is moved to the middle of the area and when you first turn it on it doesn't go back to starting possession's then some thing is wrong with the motor drive more than not it's likely you have a crack in the board.
