My son tripped over our friends ps2 and it fell to the floor upside down. The PS2 goes but the drive does not go.Any ideas how to fix this problem" Thanks

There are quite a few things that can cause a disc read error on the slim PS2. The most frequent is a bad laser, however, here is some useful troubleshooting info:

1. "Lid Closed Sensors" There are two "lid closed sensors" in the slim PS2. In a fall, it's possible that one or both have become damaged. Remove the top of the PS2 and try depressing both sensors with a game inside. The laser should move up and down at least???

IF YES, try again with the lid on... if the laser doesn't move when you close the lid, then the top casing of your PS2 cracked in the fall and is no longer depressing the lid closed sensors.

==> If the laser moves up and down OK but does not read discs, your laser was damaged in the fall. See below for a website with more troubleshooting info, pictures, and replacement cases and lasers.

IF NO, you have a bad lid closed sensor -- these are not really replaceable easily -- you may be better off replacing the whole PS2 if one or both of these lid closed sensors goes bad.

Ps2 slim will not spin disk i have cleaned everything inside everything seems to be working normally yet the disk wont spin

If you have removed the cover and cleaned the glass laser eye lens unit, then the laser lens motor is faulty.

Playstation 2 slim will not read discs. disc inserted and door closed still nothing happens. no laser movement, nothing.

There are THREE reasons that a Slim PS2 will not read discs. I willstart from most common and end at the least common (almost rare)problem.

1. A bad laser. Lasers labor on Playstation 2 [and all other videogame] consoles. They eventually fail, especially if you use your PS2as a DVD player. You can find Slim PS2 lasers at the followingwebsite. They are pretty simple to replace:

2. There are two "lid closed" sensors on the Slim Playstation 2. Theylet the PS2 know that the lid is shut and it should scan for a disc. Sometimes one or both of these sensors can become broken. It doesn'treally happen by itself... usually if someone drops the console, one orboth of the sensors can break or become dislodged.

3. A Bad Motherboard: This is rare. We mostly see this if someoneinstalled a mod chip into the system and it eventually fails.

Click into the following website for Do It Yourself troubleshooting todetermine why your PS2's discs aren't spinning, and how to fix it.

My ps2 silm not working.

My PS2 slim wont spin a disc unless I put pressure on the top of it. As a temporary fix I place a 10 pound ******** on top of it while the PS2 is in the horizontal position.

My ps2 has been droped, and now it won't read discs

I wouldn't open the outer case if you are just interested in doing a cleaning.  You can purchase a cd cleaner kit that allows you to put a disc inside that cleans the lens.  Otherwise the first step i would take is buy a can of compressed air and blow the dust out of the system.  See if this improves the situation before opening the system.

Disc wont work

Hi AdalVI,

Your PS2 probably has a dirty laser lens. Below is a procedure for cleaning the lens on the big PS2. It does not work on the Slim PS2. Do not ever use alcohol on a slim PS2 laser lens.

I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the Reset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Remove the CD tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the CD area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. Remove the little white disc from the CD tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and you’re in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to a Repair shop. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. then choose "Video Game Consoles". Then you pick a Good Repair shop. My shop is listed, but I cannot divulge the name in this forum. Cost will be $25 plus shipping. Shipping is usually $8.95 to the USA

PS2 disc won't read or turn

Hi Blacknmild, You will not be able to tell the disc is spinning once the door is open. you have to open the slim up and simulate the door being closed by pressing the button switches at the left rear corner of the disc drive, and just behind the reset switch at the same time. Chcek out my repair site if you need service.
