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
WATCH this video to clean lens
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
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
No Spin At AllIf 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.
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.
This could be a couple of things. Have you opened it to see if it is not spinning or is it spinning them and just stops. If it is spinning and just stops, then this is a Laser problem. There are a few ways to fix this. Let me know and I will help you out.
