    PS2 boots and then sets at the Browser & System Configuration Page. Cannot get it to recognise that a disk is in the game. Did not get disk error.

My disc reader motor wont spin. it refuses to read the disc

Hi,the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DONT use regular rubbing alcohol.
Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses.
Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone.
This method clears read problems most of the time.

when a disk reader refuses to spin, sometimes it might be from the motor mechanism that allows it to spin when you insert a disk inside the disk reader is damaged that's might be the reason it does not spin.

You can check both the lens and the mechanism to be such which needs to be replaced.

Take care.

Try moving the the small machine the lens is mounted on but don't touch the lens and also try spinning the motor (where you put the disk). It could have got stuck.

Disk wont spin

are you a cute blond? i give you alot of credit, but your going about it wrong. need to know if there is red/blue coming out of the laser. the laser focusing (moving up and down)
3.the spindle height has to be at the correct height for the laser to read the disk (thus spinning it) and the spindle also had had problems with this unit. (you can clean it up )
4. once it spins the disk it has to read the TOC (table of contents)which means it has to move to the inner most part of the cd
5 send me you name address and if your busy friday! lol

Ps2 slim line

if the laser is moved to the middle of the area and when you first turn it on it doesn't go back to starting possession's then some thing is wrong with the motor drive more than not it's likely you have a crack in the board.

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.

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!

Ps2 disc wont spin

try loosening the screw to the left of the laser i believe its a torx bit.( i just used a very small flathead). on my broken scph 30001 i used to have to manuallly spin the disk for it to read games so i loosened that screw and lubricated all the tracks with wheel bearing grease(white lithium would be better but i work on cars so it's what i had.
