No,it cant spin with the door open,check the series,if it is an SCPH-7700x,then know it is a common problem with them,so the lense mechanism has to be replaced.if it has been opened before,make sure the .screw under the reset button is well tied,as well as the middle one on the opposite.take note,if the lense is too weak,it might not spin at all

Disc wont spin


There are 4 reasons a disc won't spin on the Slim PSP. The most common is a failed laser.

1. Failed laser -- the disc will not spin up to speed, or not spin at all, due to a bad laser. If you close the PS2 with no disc inside, the ps2 will never spin the disc. If you chose the PS2 with a disc inside but a bad laser, it still thinks no disc is inside and will not spin.

2. Lid closed sensors. There are two of them. One on the motherboard and one on the reset switch. These sensors let the PS2 know that the lid is closed. If one or both of these break, the disc will never spin because the PS2 will think the lid is still open.

3. Damaged case. If the case of the PS2 is damaged, the two parts of the lid that are supposed to press the lid-closed sensors will never press them.

My old PS2 Wont Spin the disc.


You would be better off with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip actually. If you are able to, take the case off and blow out as much of the dust as you can, and give everything a thourough and gentle going over with alcohol + q-tip.

Ps2 slimline.... disc doesnt spin, laser not flashing or moving... no data on browser


My ps2 has/had the same problem, it wouldn't read DVD movies at all and ps1 games were always hit or miss. The only two solutions i can suggest are cleaning the lens or replacing the little cotton pad that holds the disk in place near the laser. This seemed to fix it for me, it works about 85% of the time now. Hope one of these helps

Laser Wont fire


I had the very same problem with my ps2. What I had found was that I had indeed gotten a nonfunctioning laser. After I installed another new laser, the system functions without any problem. I hope this information helps you.
