Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

Our PS2 was dropped and now won't read disc

It doesn't say "disc error" like the problem a lot of other people are having but doesn't even seem to be spinning the disc. It comes up to "Browser" and "System Configuration" and doesn't play the game.

It looks as if your PS2 has died. I'm sorry to say, but since the firmware boots and it's just the disc error message, it lokos like a hardware error that is likely irreparable. This is the best "solution" i can give! please dont blame me! Just trying to help... but you can find great used ones for cheap now. Good Luck!

I have a playstation 2 slim here. It wont spin the


Is that the only disc you seem to be having the problem with?? If so try getting the disc repair kit and using that. I had the same problem with mine but it was only some of the discs. The ps2 slim can be very sensitive and even the slightest defect in a disc will cause it not to recognize there is even a disc there.

Denon DN-C635 CD Player problem.


In working with consumer electronics a lot of years, the pickup, mechanism or CD section is not always at fault but people that
are trying to work on their own equipment make assumptions that may not be correct. If you put in a new CD player then the other issues as with all wave soldered equipment can be bad solder joints and even bad solder at joints where the connectors are as these get a lot of activity in a repair. Look at the PCB well. I have fixed a lot of equipment by resoldering bad or broken joints. Check around power transistors and those larger drive transistors for these broken joints.

Can't play CDs in my car. The Unit gives me error code 4


The error 4 in most CD Player is an error that comes up when the laser pickup doesn't read the disc correctly. This happens most of the time because of a dirty lens in the laser pickup. If anyone smokes in the vehicle the smoke may be on the lens causing the error code. Try a wet type CD cleaning disc to see if it helps.

"Error 4" is a mechanical disc loading problem. The disc probably hasn't been seating in the #6 carrier properly, leading to some mechanical interference when it is selected. It would seem to be properly seated now, but next time you have it out you might check it on a perfectly smooth flat surface to be sure it is not warped slightly. Try another disc in that position, one you know to be trouble-free.

I burn a lot of discs for my clients and have never had a problem with the mid or high-grade discs from Taiyo Yuden, and others. Even lesser discs like Ritek perform fairly well. Some brands - usually the no-names - fail right out of the box. One of the problems seems to be that the cheapest discs are pretty thin and subject to mechanical problems like warping.

If you use "economy" discs particularly, be sure to put a label on them. Most of the cheap discs don't have much of a protective coat on top and scratching the top metal foil finish can lead to serious playback troubles as the disc is read by the laser from the bottom.. In addition to telling you what's ON the disc, the label helps protect that critical foil.

Hope helps.

Hey my mac won't eject a disc. i have tried a lot of stuff and nothing happened. when i restart it the disk spins and doesn't sound stuck and when i used disk utility it said there was an error...


Resolution Tip: Make sure the CD or DVD disc is not in use. Quit all applications that are using files on the disc.
  1. Press the Media Eject key at the top-right corner of the keyboard.
  2. If that doesn't work, drag the disc's icon to the Trash.
  3. If that doesn't work, restart the computer, then hold down the mouse button or trackpad button while the computer is starting up, until the disc is ejected.
    To restart, choose Restart from the Apple menu.

The disc spins but doesn't show anything. It goes straight to the browser and system configuration screen. It acts like there's no disc in it.
