    Unseat and reseat the ribbon cable to the laser. If for some reason the ribbon is even slightly off, it will cause the laser to not read.

Ps2 not reading discs(disc arent even spinning)


Well, This has happened to me before. If you are insistent that you do not have to replace it, then see if a friend has an old ps2 he or she doesn't use anymore, because your motor is dead. Its not going to spin, and you need a whole new drive portion of the ps2. basically, your disk wont spin, and the laser wont read it. honestly, right now, Gamestop is selling ps2's for like 40$. you should just go buy a new one.

PS2 not reading disks


Your lazer lense has bit the dust. Depending on your model type the first gen systems lazers are very easy to replace. The later versions sony made it harder to replace. You can find out what model you have by looking at the back of your PS2 then you can either call sony or go to there website and find out what generation PS2 you have. Then go from there. Hope this helps

Won't load or play disc or dvd


It's a well known fact PS2's had a cheap lazer fitted to them, that's why when it gets chiped to play copy games, not long after it starts playing up. The lazer may just need aligning, purchase a cd/dvd cleaning cd rom as these can check audio, lazer alignment and clean the lens.
