I used a few online tutorials to help me take apart and clean my ps2. then i noticed that when i pluged it back in to test to see if it works the rubber piece that sits under the disc, turns for like a second and stops. i have triend turning it off, restarting , every time it just spins for a second and then stops. need help asap...
What it sounds like is that you may have tried to save money by cleaning yourself, but you either moved the lens or cracked it. so you need to send it in to a repair shop to get it adjusted or have it replaced. So you are looking at about $35 to $70.

this often happens when either the disc is bad or you have a hard drive problem, you can try to unplug it for about 20 minutes and try again also try a cd cleaner for the console ,it will clean the eye that reads the disc if after that it still does not work you can take it to a computer shop to have the hard drive tested...hope this helps
It's not enough to use a disk to clean the laser lens. You have to take the PS2 apart and clean the lens manually. Nicotine, Incense, diffusers, and other smokes and just time itself clouds the lens. Not only that but the part that the disk sits and spins on needs to be cleaned over time as well to assure the disk is in proper alignment and Is not just kinda spinning on the spindle.
In that link i posted above you be led to directions on how to take apart your PS2 and what parts to clean. The instructions I have posted in that tutorial is for the (FAT) PS2 model not SLIMLINE. If you have a slimline model you don't have to take apart anything just open your cover and clean the parts in the video.
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
To fix this problem, you will need to open your PS2 and re-adjust its lens. To open your PS2, first turn it upside down. Remove the 4 rubber feet and 6 square tabs (circled in the picture) by sliding a flat screwdriver (or something similar) underneath them.
please check the model of the optical unit and purchase the new (original) one. Then you can change the optical taking care that mechanical alignment should stay the same as before replacement.
Hope that this will solve your problem.
It's likely the lazer lens is out of alignment or requires replacing.
Did your dvd cleaner also have a lens aligning part to it, you normally go through a spoken instruction(go to track 2 etc), as cleaning is sometimes not the only required solution.
