Power works; fan spins;light is on; promo screen works; disc won't read; disk won't spin


The most likely situation you have here is that the cd drive lens isn't reading, just because with a gamecube, it relies on that lens to detect if there is a disc inserted. Your best bet is to try and clean the lens with a que tip and some rubbing alcohol. Be gentle, only very gentle wipes back and forth in a circular motion, then dry it the same way. If that doesn't work, I can give you some tips on how to rip the thing apart and see if it is a connection inside somewhere

My gamecube does not spin the discs that i put into it and does not read them. Is there something i can do to fix this without having to buy a new one?


One time I ccidently touched the lens in my 10 year old gamecube so now the lens and the laser dont read the discs anymore because it is knocked out of anglement so you could buy a new gamecube now or buy a wii because wii's can still play gamecube disc's too.

Ps3 wont play games, dvds, or blurays. The disc doesn't spin??


This may be a case of replacing the laser lens. If your console is out of warranty, take it to your local Game Stop, or somewhere that does Sony repair. PSR does Sony authorized repair, but it usually involves shipping. You can contact PSR at 877-777-3491, or email at psr_repairs@msn.com. Hope this was helpful

Ps2 not reading discs(disc arent even spinning)


Well, This has happened to me before. If you are insistent that you do not have to replace it, then see if a friend has an old ps2 he or she doesn't use anymore, because your motor is dead. Its not going to spin, and you need a whole new drive portion of the ps2. basically, your disk wont spin, and the laser wont read it. honestly, right now, Gamestop is selling ps2's for like 40$. you should just go buy a new one.

Ps2 slim spindle dont spin


If your spindle has stopped spinning, it will most likely be 1 of 2 problems. Either your spindle motor has burnt up, or even though it is very unlike, a lead wire that supplies the power to the spindle has became disconnected. Now, if the case it the burnt up spindle motor, there are hundreds of motors for every kind of PS on, of course, E-Bay. If the problem is for some reason, a soldered wire has broken from the motor. It is very simple to re-attach the lead with a quick touch from a soldering iron. I hope this has helped.
