PS2 Slimline - Powers up, Spins, No Game...

Hey,

I have a PS2 Slim, it will power up and the disc seems to be spinning just fine. It loads the browser and will let me tinker with the memory card, but the game won't load, I've tried different games, but getting nothing aside from the 'reading disc' message.... :/

Any help or quick fixes would be awesome.

Thanks
C2

Sony machines have notoriously bad lasers. I find that with the slim if you have a small amount of nail polish remover on a cotton bud and dab the laser (whilst off and without touching the laser) that does the trick

Ps2 wont SPIN disks it tries to read and spins for like 1sec PS2 SLIM


If it's having issues reading ANY kind of discs (CD's, DVD's, PS2 games) it might be due to a malfuctioning lense or a disk rotator motor issue.

Since it's agaisnt the PS2 TOS to modify or take apart your PS2 you should contact customer support or tech support with this issue.

If there's that option is not aviable you should try ordering the required parts online from different distribuitors: http://www.eachgame.net/category-88-b0-min0-max0-attr-1-sort_order-DESC.html

Do you know anyone else with a PS2 that you could try it on? You need to know if it is the game or PS2.

It could have been that the disc has faded due to storage or being left on a windowsill and this can be hard to notice.

Ps2 slim spindle dont spin


If your spindle has stopped spinning, it will most likely be 1 of 2 problems. Either your spindle motor has burnt up, or even though it is very unlike, a lead wire that supplies the power to the spindle has became disconnected. Now, if the case it the burnt up spindle motor, there are hundreds of motors for every kind of PS on, of course, E-Bay. If the problem is for some reason, a soldered wire has broken from the motor. It is very simple to re-attach the lead with a quick touch from a soldering iron. I hope this has helped.

Slimline powers on disc spins but no picture


sometimes its hard to start tv-games (ps2, gamecube) since you have to put it on 'video', and other stuff.  Depending on your tv you might have 'input 1,2, and 3' instead of 'video'. just keep changing settings, and if you have your 'tri-cable' into a vcr try pressing the vcr power button.
