Well, it's probably bound to happen because you said yourself that you've owned that thing for 5 years, and if ever that you really took care of it, I suggest you look at the CD Game. Does it have scratches? Always clean the disc before inserting it in your device. After playing, take out the disc and slightly blow on the disc reader, to gently remove specks of dust that may destroy small mechanics. Hope this helps, and good luck!

MY PLAYSTATION 3 WONT PLAY GAMES ...THE DISC WONT SPIN WHA DO I NEED TO DO?


Hi.

This is a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. The unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You could try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue. If there is a problem with the laser the disk will not spin as the laser has not been able to recognise it.

You can also open the case and clean the laser lense with a Q Tip and an alcohol cleaning solution.

*If you plan on opening the case at any stage please ensure the unit is disconnected from its power supply. *

If this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

Otherwise I believe Sony are doing these on an exchange basis for around $150 if your unit is out of warranty. You can contact Sony customer support at this link if you need to do this.

When I insert a PS2 disc and power on the browser/system configuration menu is displayed rather than loading the game. It doesn't look like the disc spins at all. I haven't tried a CD or DVD but have tried...


Check to see if the top lid is closed correctly. Probably one of the small locks on front of it has broken off and the Playstation 2 wont spin the disc. Check to see if they are intact as well. If this is not the problem then you should probably call the PlayStation 2 Support Line, or just call up Sony.

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.

Eek Playstation 2 Slim wont read any disc!!


OK. First of all, put any disc in and turn on the PS2. Push the spot shown here down with something about the size of the TV end of the AV cable.

Watch what it does. Does it stop spinning? If so, see this pic

  1. This keeps the disc from spinning when the cover is open.
  2. push this down while following the instructions from the first pic. Does the disc work?
  3. There's usually a small object that pushes #2 down. Chances are it broke off.

This piece here is what broke off on my PS2 as seen in the previous image. If you can find some way to glue it back on, you should be back in business.

I would be careful about cleaning your lens because Sony has been known to void any warranty you have when cleaning because of not using "sony products". I to have the same problem but mine came up disc read error only after a month and i cant play anything either? even thoguh I dont have a solution I just offer a warning about cleaning it.
