This happened to my slimline design PS2 console.
Everytime I turn my PS2 on, the disc won't spin (I put the disc correctly and shut the disc tray) so now I can't play on my PS2. However, it can still identify memory cards. Now what should I do?

if your ps2 is not a modded one sorry to tell you but yours is a pal ps2 (means you live somewhere in asia europe)so there is some difference i the american ps2 disc(ntsc) and pal ps2 disc both are designed to play in specific consoles so if you bought they console from ntsc territory(japan ,north america) it should work for sure but sometimes in japan and all they sell pals also but there is still chance try returning the cd to the shop and buy a pal disc or you can mod your ps2 from ps2 technicians (they are all around the world,every console shop has one) and then you can play american disc this is the only chance it will only take a small 25 bucks from you just mod it and u can play games u burned from your computer and also any pal ,ntsc territory original discs also
It might be a defect with the disc or the console. If the console plays other games correctly, then it's a problem with the disc. While there is still a warranty on the disc, return it to the store and get another.
It happened to me once.
t's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.
This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken
try both audio and game disks if it will not turn the disks then the motor hub on the ps2 is shot if it will play the audio cd and not play the game then the laser is out of alignment but if you hear it spinning it could also be a burnt out laser as well further information would be required to diagnose this issue further.
Since you "smashed" which made things much worse (been there, done that). It was probrably fixable but now that it scratches I can only assume that the lens (laser) is scratched and damaged "beyond repair". The only suggestion I have, if you really want to fix it is to replace the lens and probrably the disc tray too. Fot the trouble it's worth too fix and the fact that there is no guarantee that it will even work after you fix it, your best bet is too buy a new one or at least a refurbished one.
you will have to buy a new laser motor you can buy them on the net and they are easy enough to fit this is a commen problem most people throw the ps2 away as they think it cant be repaired but they can they r reasonably priced but a lot cheaper then buying another ps2 you should be able to fit it yourself it is easy enough a computer repairman out of the local papers will do it for you if you dont think you can do it i have seen them for sale on ebay maybe you try their first easy to do 30 min job hope this helps you out
my friend i have a ps2 that its cd does not rotate ( i open it completely ) and the lens is working the lens is producing a red ray and it is movinng up and down but just the cd motor doesnot rotate so i checked the smd fuses using my fluke dgital multimeter i found one that is open when i replace it the ps2 work perfectly fine for your information the smd fuses are marked ps1 ps2 ps3 ps4 etc
