Hi gollywog,

The laser not moving sounds like the connection from the motor that moves the laser to the motherboard has become dsiconected. You can usually get movement of the laser, and the only reason is something is wrong with the motor or its connection to the motherboard.

My PS2 model SCPH-75004 won't read any of my disks.I have cleaned them many times and they still don't work.What can I do?


This is a common problem with slimline PS2's.

The problem you have got is that the lens unit has failed so it can't read any disks. You will have to take the console to a repair store to have the lens unit replaced. The cost should be around $40 or £20.

My Ps2 slim is not spinning the disk what should I do?

Please check information in the TV screen. Is it unknown disk or just nothing. Unknown disk is indicate your lens is unable to read the disk. It could be because bad disc, dirty lens or defective lens. If nothing information in your screen, probably the problem is in your small motor to spin the disk.
So please check the root cause so you can locate the problem precisely before take repair / replacement.

Disk is not spining

Don't bother changing the lens. If i understand you correctly you have damaged the motor or some circuitry leading to it. I hope this helps! good luck on finding a new one, they are abundant right now!
