PS 2 silver games won't play

I'm not very tech savvy...the games won't spin inside the console. Have tried different games, none of them work. Power/light is on. I can't even find a way to open it up to check it out (not sure what to do once I got it open anyway). HELP!!! My kids are SO SAD:( Thanks:-)

Re: PS 2 silver games won't play

Hi Dallasmama, I can fix this for you if you like. I could tell you how, but sounds like you really would be overwhelmed by all the details inside a PS2. I will repair it for $20 plus Shipping both ways. Shipping is $8.95 one way. Total cost would be 37.90. The Playstation Clinic accepts Paypal, Checks,and money orders. I run the website and I have a 100% repaired record. I will make it like new again for your kids. Email me if your interested at

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.

The disc won't spin

Hi, It could be one of 2 things, either your laser is on its way out or the motor in the dvd drive has run out of lubricant. The latter is quite obvious as the drive will be noisy when spinning!!!, if ur tech savvy and are capable of doing so, remove the drive from the xbox and open up the drive casing, the motor is situated under where the disc sits on the little black disc.
There are 3 screws holding the motor in place, remove them and with gentle pressure pull the black section from the motor, clean thoroughly then place a couple of drops of wd40 or three in one oil onto the shaft. Re-assemble and that should fix your problem.

PS3 froze occassionally and now games won't load

I wish it was just the lens. However you as many of us, will need to replace the HDD (Hard Disc Drive) of the machine. And yes Sony will do that for the $.

When the ps2 is on and the disc is in, so this:
1. Turn the ps2 horizontly
2. When you hear the ticks of the laser trying to read, tap it against your knee until you hear it spin

I'm not sure if this will work with the fat ps2s because I have a silver SCPH-79001 model. Hope I helped

The disc isn't spinning so the game isn't playing


try different games or playing the game with the PSP in diferent positions, ex upside down, sideways...
and let me know if it works. If it does something is lose inside, if it does not the laser reader or LCD casing must be replaced.

Hi Lee,
Your lasers on the way out.
it,s all to do with the power output of the laser head, and the angle for reading the 2 different disk types.
i,d suggest getting a new laser fitted. not too expensive usually with older consoles. Try E-Bay :)
