Re: Play station 2 spinner broke

When the cd goes into the drive there is a little wheel the cd sits on , which spins the cd, often they wear out , and need to be replaced , its a very cheap part, u will need to go and buy one from a game console repair store , it is a very cheap part , and also would not cost much for them to do the job for you , otherwise if you or your son is good at pulling things apart , you can do it your self ,

I am trying to open an account on my son's Play Station 3 console. when asked to put in my eail address and password it tells me they don't match!! Can anyone please advise? Thanks Jonathan Pass

You must first create an account via the PS3.

It sounds as though what you <i>have</i> been trying to do is log on to a 'non-existent' account.

Play Station 2 Slim Model

Its called a spindle and you might have to replace the whole spindle motor assembly. Search online for one, there are loads of sites selling PS2 part (make sure you get the right model number or your new part might not work).

Alternately, if there are any computer/electronics fairs in your area you could try there. I needed a spindle motor for a scrap machine I was refurbing a few months ago and bought one from a computer fair for £2.

Here is a video tutorial on how to take your PS2 apart to replace the bit.

Play station 2 wont play movies any more

Maybe he deleted a driver, cause if you are in the menu of the PS2 then you can press triangle and you can adjust the drivers... try setting them differently!
