PS2 not working ..... Help

My son bought a seconde hand PS2 after his broke. he plugged it in and it is not spinning nor can I tell if it is even getting power. I pushed the reset button which seems to be the only power button, although I could be wrong. Is it suppose to light up? He bought it from a family down the road who said it worked fine the last time they used it. I have no problem taking it apart if I knew where to start. Please help.

On the back there is some plates. Take off 6 (i know there are 8 but 2 of them aren't worth the trouble, theyr'e the corner ones close to the front) then pull of the top. Pretend the top is still on. There should be chip right behind the power button. If there is one push the white button and hold down the black lever on the top. If there isn't a chip you have to order one from sony.

The disk do`snt spin


No Spin At All

If your spindle hub is NOT SPINNING AT ALL,
NOT EVEN 1/2 OF A TURN, it may be bad or unplugged.
A tell tale sign of it being unplugged is if you hit
eject, the laser moves down the rail, and starts
grinding because the PS2 keeps trying to move it
down the rail even though it hit the end. There's a
small switch on the spindle hub that tells the unit
to stop pushing the laser because it's reached the
end. Spindle hubs usually do not go bad by themselves,
usually either the PS2 too a bad fall and it became
bent [try spinning it by hand], or someone the cable
out and put it in too many times [or incorrectly] and
the silver contacts on the cable were detached.
Reasons for 1/2 spin:


1. A dirty laser. Try cleaning the laser and see if it helps.
If you can see crust or dust covering the laser eye, it may
not be strong enough to read anything at all. If the laser
looks clean, this is probably not the issue.


2. An unplugged laser cable. These things normally do not come
out by themselves, but if you opened the ps2 that was spinning
OK to clean the laser and/or removed the laser to clean it,
plugged it in, now it's spinning 1/2 of a turn, the laser cable
may not be in securely. If it is in securely, make sure it is
plugged into the motherboard end properly.

3. A dead laser. On models 30001, 35001, and some 30001R, this
is the most likely issue. These models are old and the original
lasers were a bit unreliable.

Ps2 powers up, but disc is not spinning and


Following could be the reasons for not spinning any PS2 disc:
  • A dirty laser. Try cleaning the laser and see if it helps. If you can see crust or dust covering the laser eye, it may not be strong enough to read anything at all. If the laser looks clean, this is probably not the issue.

Card reader is saying 'no memory card inserted' on ps2


This is either a bad memory port on the PS2 or a fried memory card. I would suggest that you get a brand new memory card and try that. You can get new ones very cheap at Wal-Mart & Target usually has them on clearance.

If the problem persists with the new card then the port is bad. You then have two choices: send it in to Sony and pay approximately $150 for them to repair it out of warranty. (As long as the seal that covers the screws isn't broken.) The positive side of this is that it includes a year warranty.

The second option is to open the case of the PS2 and switch the plugs that go into the memory ports. This will allow you to insert a card into the second (right) port and the PS2 will think it is in port #1.

There is no data


It may be just a dirty lense.. if it is the large style ps2 they are easy to take apart and clean the lense.. just use a q tip with very little rubing alcohol and clean it and remember were everything goes to put it back together.. its really not to hard to do.

Power cord


This depends on what type of PS2 it is.Original or Slimline. If its the original, No I don't believe it will hurt it at all. I lost my powercord for my PS2, and saw that the one for my PS2, and my Cd player/stereo was nearly the same, but didn't have the same end on it. So I cut it to fit the hole (Warranty Void there I'm sure) and sure enough it worked. I was even able to use it on my stereo still. If thats the case, please be careful when cutting if you go that route. If you have a camera, or an camera-enabled phone, maybe you could take a pic. for us to see the cord. If it's the Slimline version though, and your talking about the cord that plugs directly into the PS2, then yes there's a good chance of it damaging it

Play Station 2 Slim Model


Its called a spindle and you might have to replace the whole spindle motor assembly. Search online for one, there are loads of sites selling PS2 part (make sure you get the right model number or your new part might not work).

Alternately, if there are any computer/electronics fairs in your area you could try there. I needed a spindle motor for a scrap machine I was refurbing a few months ago and bought one from a computer fair for £2.

Here is a video tutorial on how to take your PS2 apart to replace the bit.

PS2, no picture/sound, but disc is spinning


When you moved did you leave the cords plugged into the unit and just wrap them around it? If so, you broke the A/V jack and it will have to be resoldered or replaced. If not, then we'll have to go over some other options.
