It could be from a lot of different reasons. I would suggest finding a local repair shop or just buying a new one. There's not easy solution unfortunately.

Ps3 not spinning disc, replaced spindle motor, did not fix. Please help


Hi there, this is because the actual laser needs replacing, not the disc spinner motor. With the PS3 the laser reads the disc data type, whether it be a DVD, game , audio cd or blu ray movie. It then spins the disc up to the required read speed. When the laser is faulty is cannot read the disc type so will not spin at all.

Hope this helps

I can hear the motor spinning but the disk doesn't spin can anyone help


spinner isnt spinning as it should. make sure that there is no short circuiting in your ps2, as this would make some of your parts of the ps2 mess up.

The ps2 works fine, but when i try to play a game, it doesnt sense the cd. it doesnt even spin. anything i could do?


barely put any oil where the spinner and ps2 are connected on the top, but clean the oil off. if that doesnt work your motherboard might have chipped at where the spinner usually spins at.

I put the game in but the disk does not spin


try cleaning the spinner and laser and make sure the spinner and game make contact to where they spin. it might be that your tray is kind of crooked and it misses the spinner to where the game wont spin.

PS2 stopped spinning.


Laser issue is a commom problem on the ps2.The laser actually is controlling the spinning as well on ps2 machine and on the new ps3 too.
When the disk start, the spinner receive a kick back from the laser and after then that start the normal operation.
If the laser don`t send any impulse to the spinner the machine recognize a danger situation ang go on protection and stop the spinning process.
Replacing your laser will certanly solve your problem.
