Disk won't spin

Basically, when I put a game into the console, the disk spinner makes a strange noise, but the disk doesn't spin. Then it says "Open Tray" on the screen.

The disk is not spinning and the band is fine


Have you checked to see if the turn for the laser is working? It won't read if the laser doesn't move. Check to make sure the teeth are good on the laser wheel and double check that it is the right position, if when you changed the belt you may have knocked something else off that is for the laser mover.

Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

spinner isnt spinning as it should. make sure that there is no short circuiting in your ps2, as this would make some of your parts of the ps2 mess up.

I put the game in but the disk does not spin


try cleaning the spinner and laser and make sure the spinner and game make contact to where they spin. it might be that your tray is kind of crooked and it misses the spinner to where the game wont spin.

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
