Re: PS2

Is the light on the front of the console on? And if so is it green or red? If it's not on, you have no power to the system. If it is on, then you probably need to replace the motor that spins the drive.

If you have an old version, not the thin version of the PS2, you can just replace the entire DVD drive. It costs a bit more, but is a much easier repair.

Let me know the status of the lights and I'll be able to help you further.

Disk wont spin

The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.

Here was my situation.

I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.

Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.

This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.

Ps2 keeps saying disk error

What makes you think it's not a disk error? Do you hear the disc spinning? You probably need to run a DVD lens cleaning disc in your PS2.

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.

When I go to play a game on my ps2 and put the game in the ps2 eye prevents the disk from spinning I have the newer ps2 that is slim the eye that reads the disk keeps sliding up and the disk does not get...

Does this happen to all of your Discs? If you know someone who also has a PS2, try to run your discs first on that PS2...If they worked, then probably either the lens of your PS2 needs to be replaced, or it only needs cleaning. Or it is also possible that your disc isn't inserted on the disc tray properly...and by "inserted properly " on the tray I mean is to make sure that the 3 pins on the spinner of your PS2 are sticking out of the hole on the DVD and thus gripping the disc...
