PS2 Slim Disc not spinning

I haven't played my PS2 in over a month and when I finally get into the mood to play some games The disc won't spin. I took it out to my neighbor and he plugged it in the disc started spinning. So we went inside hooked it up to the TV and tried it again but the disc would not start spinning like it did out side. I've tried my other games and CDs nothing works. At one point It started saying "Reading Disc" then the game would show up but then disappear and it would do it over again. after awhile it would stop. Please can some one tell me how to fix this. or tell me where a PS2 repair shop is in North east Ohio. I don't have much money so I'd much rather fix it my self. I have no way of getting parts off line either so where could I get the parts if I can fix it my self? (if parts are needed)

I had the same problam and i fixed it. Open your disk lid, and at the back on the right there's a small white bit touching the disk. You can push it back and it will spring forward again. Get a tiny bit of tape and stick it back but make sure there is no tape near where the disk will spin. Free and worked for me.

There's a post built into the Lid . It's the disc brake. When you put the lid down , it moves the brake out of the way allowing the disc to spin. If the post is broken , the brake stays on. No spin.
Either buy a new lid or find something to replace the post and glue it where the other one was.

Post dimensions are bout 0.080" by 0.250"

Hi Demonskid.

 

You could have some lint of hair stuck under the disc drive hub. look at closely to see and get it out.

 

The best thing is to know that the Slim laser has a plastic lens, and it will melt.  Do not leave a disc in the powered up PS2 when your not playig with it. If you leave it running with a disc in the system and it is not reading the disc well, over time the Laser will heat up and melt the lens.  If you posted this, how do you not have way of getting parts online. 

Go to www.playstationclinic.com and call them to ask for parts you need, they will send them to you at a very reasonable price.

What you need to do is check to see if the long screw running in line with laser and motor has'nt popped out . It happened to mine, so all you need to do is unscrew 6 screws on the bottom. Unclip the covers, 2 are under back feet, one under sticker which makes warranty void if opened. Turn it back over carefully take off top, then check the screw, if out a bit pop it back in and then it should work.

My PS2 is not loading Grand Turirsmo 4!


If your PS2 works fine with most of the games and won’t play a few..Then you should try this trick to play them too on your PS2:
  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:6e4cb56.jpg
  3. Press the (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like9d90dc8.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear likedd8fb1a.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press X button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the game loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens:
Thank you and Good Luck!

PS2 disk not playing


Go to www.PlaystationClinic.com The Laser optics may be misaligned or signals from the laser is restricted in some way or another. If the laser does not detect the disc, and send the signal to the Disc Processor, the motor will not spin.

Please.. help me... my ps2 slimine is comepletely ruined..


Since you "smashed" which made things much worse (been there, done that). It was probrably fixable but now that it scratches I can only assume that the lens (laser) is scratched and damaged "beyond repair". The only suggestion I have, if you really want to fix it is to replace the lens and probrably the disc tray too. Fot the trouble it's worth too fix and the fact that there is no guarantee that it will even work after you fix it, your best bet is too buy a new one or at least a refurbished one.
