Disc doesn't spin and player does not recognise disc


Generally when this happens you have one of two problems. 1) your laser lense is dirty or 2) your laser is shot. You didn't mention how old your unit is or how many hours are on it. To answer the first question......Unplug unit. Remove all cases until you can see the lense. Should be facing up and look like a fish eye. Using 200 proof alcohol and commercial swabs (lint free) moisten swab and gently clean lense. Use as little pressure as possible and be very careful. Blow lense and assembly dry using canned air. Reassemble and if all went well the unit should work. If not you probably need a new laser assembly which means you need a new unit. Price to replace would be as much or more than a new unit. Hope this helps.

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

Disc read thing (PLZ HELP!)


If you find out that it is spinning then the laser was probably knock ajar and will need adjusted. There are good step by step instructions on several sites if you search for that. I had to do it to mine that would spin and then say disc read error. The whole thing does have to come apart but when you have it apart the adjustment is the easy part.

Check your cables. Try swapping lasers with a friend. Those are the first things I would try.

Please help im in need and board


Hi, the discs will spin ??? The bubble in top right corner don't stop spinning ???
If you answered NOT the first and YES the second question ...... Then you probably have a defective laser lens like my 40 GB purchased in 2008-Nov.
You have 2 choices: 1- Send it for repair (With warranty) 2- Fix it your self.
It's no complicated, I did it. Just buy a laser replacement and do it. Look for videos in Youtube.com and will see that it's so easy.

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

Home theater won't start playing DVD


If a disc will not spin, A- the laser may not be focusing on the disc, as it must do this before it will spin and read the TOC. ( table of contents) B- you could have a fault in the spindle motor circuit or the motor could be bad. You will need to find an authorized servicer if you do not understand solid state repairs. Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this.
