The laser is either dirty or burned out. When the disc does not spin, it usually is because the controller does not see any initial data coming from the laser. Clean your laser and see if you get any response. Use Glass Cleaner and aQ-tip to cleane the lens.
CLick on "Repair Directory" Below and search for Video Game Console Repair shops. Might be the way to get your PS2 running top notch

My ps2 wont read any game encrypted on a blue dvd disc not evn a plays it so slow even if the cd is scratch less......

When this happens, it's due to a failing laser. As the laser starts to fail, the system will stop reading blue discs first, then dvds, then cds. You can find a new laser at the following website:

Ps2 wont read discs and asks for format disc

I can guess that the games you are trying to play have a Blue underneath and not silver. This was a big problem with my sons disks too using the older version of the ps2. We managed to mess about with some of the settings and changed the rgb setting to the other option (can't remember what that was now...sorry) and got some of them to work, but not for long. When the new games come out now they expect you to have the slimline ps2 and unfortunalty won't work on the older model. So to fix this problem I just bought a new one.
