Disk wont spin


The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.

Here was my situation.

I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.

Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.

This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.

1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

When I go to play a game on my ps2 and put the game in the ps2 eye prevents the disk from spinning I have the newer ps2 that is slim the eye that reads the disk keeps sliding up and the disk does not get...


Does this happen to all of your Discs? If you know someone who also has a PS2, try to run your discs first on that PS2...If they worked, then probably either the lens of your PS2 needs to be replaced, or it only needs cleaning. Or it is also possible that your disc isn't inserted on the disc tray properly...and by "inserted properly " on the tray I mean is to make sure that the 3 pins on the spinner of your PS2 are sticking out of the hole on the DVD and thus gripping the disc...

Slim ps2 disk read error


I don't want to put you down or nothing but, buying the slim ps2 wasn't a great idea. If you bought the original ps2 it would've been better. The thing about the thin ps2 is the hd is small, the laser tends to become weaker faster. Go get the ps2 checked out someplace.

Disc read error


You will ne4ed to clean up the PS2. open it up and clean the laser lens with alcohol on a cotton swab. If it is the Slim Ps2 model you should not use Alcohol. Use A glass Cleaner like windex on the slim. Sometimes the magnet gets week and you need to add some magnetism to help improve the spindle grip on the Game disc. Cut up a refridgerator magnet and place it in the white cap thatt clamps the Game disc in the cd player.

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.

Disk wont spin


First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
