SOURCE: disc not spinning browser/configuraion display on screen.

  1. Check to see if a Music cd will spin in the console
  2. Open flip lid and examine the reset switch - check to ensure the switch is intact - you are looking for a small lever which is made of lack plastic. If its not there you need a new reset switch
  3. If the laser is not moving at all you will need to open up the console (WILL OBVIOUSLY VOID YOU WARRANTY!)
  4. Check the PCB switch at the rear of the console. This part connects to the lid of the ps2 if thats is broken you will need to replace - difficult to source but they are available
  5. Check the ribbon cable underneath the PS2 Laser for any signs of damages
  6. Check the ribbon cables x 2 which attach the laser assembly to the motherboard
  7. Remove the motherboard metal shield and test the SMD (SURFACE MOUNTED) on the underside of the board use a multimeter for this
  8. If your console passes all these tests the most likely cause is a blown laser which is a simple part to source via ebay etc.
  9. If your new laser does not fix your problem then you have a blown RS2004 chip which is expensive to replace and usually not economical to do.

SOURCE: disk on ps2 slimline won't spin

yes when you open your ps you can remove the lense by using small screw driver.
if you remove it you can blow very well by using air compresser

SOURCE: ps2 not reading disc.

First you need to define what it IS and IS NOT reading. You'll need to run some tests.

Test 1: use a regular music CD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and put that into your ps2 and see if it starts playing it.

Test 2: insert a regular DVD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and try to play that.

If neither will play then it is one of two things. Your laser lens is out of alignment, or your laser lens is damaged.

If one plays but not the other, it is the potentiometer pots on the back of the PS2 lens that need adjusting. You can read more about that on one of my other posts ::.HERE.::

My ps2 won't play games it just goes to the settings screen and when to go to browser it says disk could no be read


if the ps2 start and goes to the browser very fast then it is browser ic problem, you have to change it

if it says disck could not be read , then it can be disk problem or the lens

just blow the air into lens so that any dirt is on the lens will be gone or wipe it with soft cloth slightly

thank you

Disc read error


Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.

Disk wont spin


First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
