I searched the net for this, and the conclusion is that whatever it is Lens or Motor (90% chances that it is the lens) you have to get it replaced by a professional...I'm afraid there's no quick fix for this !

I tried every thing but my ps2 just wont spin.can some one tell me wut to do because im am bored out my mined

Posted on Aug 19, 2008


Mine had the same issue (PS2 Fat version). I adjusted the lens but it would not spin at all, except for when I placed a small dumb bell on top of the playstation, as if putting force down on the center of the cd. It started to spin, remove dumb bell, stops spinning, add dumb bell, starts spinning. So yeah, its most likely some faulty issue on the laser or the motor. But now I can play, although there is a dumb bell on top of my playstation

CAUTION: the dumb bell I used is just heavy enough to apply force at the top, but not heavy enough to break the playstation, i think its a 1 or 3 pound dumb bell.

I have a playstation 2 slim here. It wont spin the

Is that the only disc you seem to be having the problem with?? If so try getting the disc repair kit and using that. I had the same problem with mine but it was only some of the discs. The ps2 slim can be very sensitive and even the slightest defect in a disc will cause it not to recognize there is even a disc there.

The cds wont read

Sounds like the laser has gone bad. The disc won't spin until the laser focuses on the disk, then the disk will spin.

I bought a gamecube online and it wont spin the disk

Sounds like you need the Gamecube sensor switch replaced. That is a small door device for detecting when the Gamecube DVD door or lid is closed allowing disc initiation to begin. When your Gamecube doesn't detect disk at all and simply continues the message: "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC," this is the problem. You can test this by inserting a game disc, opening the Gamecube door, and then closing it. If the message "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC" remains unchanged, and there is no spinning of the disk, then your GameCube lid closed door sensor is probably broken and should be replaced. You can search Google for Part GCPT032, or for GameCube Lid Closed Door Sensor.


An easy fix if you know how to open the Cube. It's cable simply plugs in, and it is held by one tiny screw.

Ps3 wont read any disk

If you can't hear the disc spin it means that the lens is gone.
Purchase a mechanism KES-400 AAA and replace it (if you do not have warranty).
If the disc spins and does not load it might be the blu ray board. I have one with the same issue and I don't know how to pair a new board with the existing motherboard.

My ps3 wont spin any disk what can i do to fix it

Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. The disc won't spin unless the unit realizes that a disc is there. A dirty lens will prevent the system from reading the disc.
Keep us posted.
