Hi Johnston5,


If it will boot up it is worth fixing.  You can get a new disc drive from for around $20 delivered. The task of replacing the drive is a bit complicated and you could total the unit if you do not release the laser ribbon cable correctly. You have to pop up the retainer on the socket the ribbon plugs into on the laser and the motherboard.  The other two ribbon cables pull out and insert without having to release a retainer.  If your not comfortable with doing this, I run the Playstation Clinic and will do it for you.  The price for replacing the Disc drive in the Slim is $41 including return shipping inside the USA. Contact me at Repairtech@playstationclinic if you would like for me to refurbish you slim.

The disc spins but doesn't show anything. It goes straight to the browser and system configuration screen. It acts like there's no disc in it.

My playstation 2 disk tray wont spin

the thing is, there can be 2 things.
  • The motor that spins the discs has gone bad. you cant do anything then, just pay the local dealer 20$, he'll fix it for ya
  • Or, your Disc tray is not closed properly. For solving this, try to keep somehitng heavy upon the disc tray, and then try.
