PS2, no picture/sound, but disc is spinning

I moved recently and I haven't been able to get my PS2 to work ever since. The disc spins, but there is no sound or picture on the TV. I have bought new cables and it didn't appear to work. I have tried to hook the system up to 3 different TVs and still nothing. Any suggestions?

When you moved did you leave the cords plugged into the unit and just wrap them around it? If so, you broke the A/V jack and it will have to be resoldered or replaced. If not, then we'll have to go over some other options.

SOURCE: PS2 Disc does not spin

just because you see read doesn't mean the laser is good.
the laser has to read the toc (table of contents) for it to read the toc it must be at the beginning, it must be at the right depth from lens to cd and the spindle must spin. now if you have to spin the spindle that means it most like is not reaching the beginning of the cd or the spindle motor is bad.

SOURCE: My old PS2 Wont Spin the disc.

You would be better off with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip actually. If you are able to, take the case off and blow out as much of the dust as you can, and give everything a thourough and gentle going over with alcohol + q-tip.

PS2 Slim Disc Wont Spin


Sounds like the laser has gone out. The unit will not try to spin unless the laser can see the disc. A new laser can be picked up on ebay for less than $10

Disc wont spin


There are 4 reasons a disc won't spin on the Slim PSP. The most common is a failed laser.

1. Failed laser -- the disc will not spin up to speed, or not spin at all, due to a bad laser. If you close the PS2 with no disc inside, the ps2 will never spin the disc. If you chose the PS2 with a disc inside but a bad laser, it still thinks no disc is inside and will not spin.

2. Lid closed sensors. There are two of them. One on the motherboard and one on the reset switch. These sensors let the PS2 know that the lid is closed. If one or both of these break, the disc will never spin because the PS2 will think the lid is still open.

3. Damaged case. If the case of the PS2 is damaged, the two parts of the lid that are supposed to press the lid-closed sensors will never press them.

Did you try moving the end of the AV cable that's connected to the PS2 system while it's on? It may be a bad connection on the actual system. If it is, that can really only be fixed by Sony.
