Pretty simple, i put in the disc, close the lid and i still receive the "open" message in the to left, sometimes with a disc logo, sometimes not. if i switch it from av2 back to dvd while its in, the disc will start to spin momentarily, before stopping and showing the open message again, PLEASE HELP ME im going on a road trip very soon.
I figured it out, it was the little plastic sensor stick that tells the unit that the lid is closed therefore reading the disc. cheap piece of plastic that has surely snapped on many a unit. good luck replacing it. i rigged it though problem solved

Well has it been dropped? If so more then likely the guide rail fall out of place and can easily be poped back in place. A good way to see if its your laser or guide rail is to fined the hole that when the lids closed this pin goes in the hole so the ps2 knows the lids closed and stick a piece of paper in that hole with lid opened. Now it should act like the lids closed. See if the laser produces a red beam or strange noises. Maybe even the little black piece at the back that stops the disc from spinning isnt working right. But dont get worried as theres a pin on the lid that makes the black piece pull back from the disc when lids closed so it might be stopping disc from spinng while its open. Several diffrent solutions need to know how you know its not spinning. If your just putting your head to it and cant hear it spinning then you will need to trouble shoot.
The HO2 message means the disc is not spinning,it's not about the lens or the laser.It is easy to take the lid off.Once you do that,plug it in,open the tray with the remote,put in a DVD,close the tray and then give the white plastic wheel on the top a gentle little nudge to get the disc spinning.
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.

Sounds like you need the Gamecube sensor switch replaced. That is a small door device for detecting when the Gamecube DVD door or lid is closed allowing disc initiation to begin. When your Gamecube doesn't detect disk at all and simply continues the message: "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC," this is the problem. You can test this by inserting a game disc, opening the Gamecube door, and then closing it. If the message "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC" remains unchanged, and there is no spinning of the disk, then your GameCube lid closed door sensor is probably broken and should be replaced. You can search Google for Part GCPT032, or for GameCube Lid Closed Door Sensor.
An easy fix if you know how to open the Cube. It's cable simply plugs in, and it is held by one tiny screw.
Mine was doing this also. In messing around with it, I found that if you open the lid and push the lid button (make the player think the lid is closed) so it will spin the disc with the lid open, I could hold the disc and prevent it from spinning. The red laser kept refocusing, and then shook like crazy! After shaking for about a second, I let it go and poof!, it started working again. Maybe a fluke, but I think when it shook it realigned the laser. My 2yr old drop this thing alot and I figured it was miss-aligned. Hope it helps someone.
DVD wont close I just solved this problem, very simple actually. Possibly can happen when the drive WILL close, but then loud noise as it tries to spin the disc up. Open the drive up (4 little screws on the bottom) and lift the lid up. If you look on the top white magnet spinner, the bottom side of the magnet system broke off of the disc motor. It will look like a little metal ring stuck to the white spinner thing whatever it's called. I popped that off and examined it, then used some krazy glue to stick it back on the motor spindle and it's away and going now. The reason the drive will not close, is because when the little magnet first breaks off it can get misaligned then when it tries to shut it gets in the way. The MAY be the cause to the problem. I fixed this issue today with mine, hitachi drive. good luck
