The spring for the drive door is a contact switch.make sure the spring contacts the flat bit of metal beneath it.test by pressing firmly in this area with a disk in . if the drive starts spining that will be ya problem.( the spring is on the left hand side of the hinge,is what holds the drive door open)

Hi Karma_2K6, Well Karma, I have some bad news for you. The Slimline has a low quality laser. The lens is made of Plastic. When the Disc spindle stops spinning properly or you have a messy Dsic in the Slim, the laser continues for long periods of time trying to read a messed up disc. This genrates heat and melts the lens. Since your Dsics are not spinning, I believe your Slim like so many others has also got a burned up Laser. You need to go to Richspsxparts.com and buy a new complete Cd drive. If your not comfortable in changing out the Cd drive assembly, you can send the unit to my service www.PlayStationClinic.com I can repair it for about $50 and this includes the CD Driver assembly. If you have not opened the case and the Warranty sticker is still intact, and you have4 the Receipt from when you purchased the slim, you can send it to Sony for repair. Here is SCEA contact info: SCEA Consumer Services 1-800-345-SONY (7669) Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM PST Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST

Try this, use a soft cotton tissue and pour some alcohol on it (70 or 90º will work) and just clean the lens (with much careful) and the spinner, cables... and then use another tissue to dry them. Do this carefully as if you do it wrong it might brake your PS2/two so do it at your own risk.

I'm having the same problem as we speak, but as far as I can tell it's a sensor error.  The disc will only spin up if the lid is closed, and the system uses pegs to depress sensors to tell when the lid is closed.  Apparently something's wrong with mine.  If i put weight on top of the disc lid, it closes the lid enough to read the disc, however.  A crappy solution, but one that works for now.

The motor for the cd drive may be broken. Depending on when you purchased the system you may be under warranty. Contact sony, they will atleast be able to give you a price quote for replacing the drive.

We have a PS 2 slim silver console and the discs won't spin.


If its still under warranty then send it back to Sony to fix it. If not the problem probably is one of the tabs that trigger the switches might be broken off. the tabs are the plastic protrusions on the lid. if the switches are not hit the ps2 will think the lid is still open and will not spin the disc.

My PS2 Slim plays music, black and blue discs, but doesn't play silver discs nor DVDs.


Is this a new problem or has your PS2 always had this issue? You cannot adjust the laser at all and are likely to damage it if you try, you can however clean the laser lens with a CD/DVD cleaning disk and you'd be surprised how often this resolves disk read issues. Some of these units did have a production fault that prevented them from reading DVD's, if your PS2 has had this fault since new and/or is under 12 months old you could probably have had it repaired/replaced by Sony but by opening it you will have invalidated you're warranty.
