When I insert a disc I get a "Disc Error" after

Most DVD players display that kind of error when unable to read data on you disc media. Try other DVD disc if that post the same problem. A new one will test if it is the unit problem or the media disc problem. If it post the same problem on a disc that runs well on other players then your player probably has a dirty lens. You can clean the lens using commercially available DVD lens cleaner on the market.

My PS2 slim wont spin a disc it takes you to the game settings but nothing else

Well has it been dropped? If so more then likely the guide rail fall out of place and can easily be poped back in place. A good way to see if its your laser or guide rail is to fined the hole that when the lids closed this pin goes in the hole so the ps2 knows the lids closed and stick a piece of paper in that hole with lid opened. Now it should act like the lids closed. See if the laser produces a red beam or strange noises. Maybe even the little black piece at the back that stops the disc from spinning isnt working right. But dont get worried as theres a pin on the lid that makes the black piece pull back from the disc when lids closed so it might be stopping disc from spinng while its open. Several diffrent solutions need to know how you know its not spinning. If your just putting your head to it and cant hear it spinning then you will need to trouble shoot.

It says no disk.. and disk is not spinng..

If the disc is not spinning when you insert it in the player, then the problem is that the spindle motor has malfunctioned. The spindle motor is the device that spins your disc so the player can read the disc.


In the picture above you can see the optical reader lens (small glass bubble looking component) and the top of the spindle which the disc sits on (large circular component) and the motor is located directly below that.

The good news is that the spindle motor's average cost is between $25-40 dollars. The bad news is that if you can fix the problem yourself, you will need to remove the entire optical laser assembly in order to replace the motor its self and is a pain. You can have a service technician fix it for you, but the cost will now average you $80-100 dollars depending on what service charges are in the area you live.

I would suggest that you remove the cover and visually confirm that the disc is not spinning, just to make sure. You can try buying a can of compressed air and cleaning the inside out really well first because there could be dust build up which could prevent the spindle from spinning properly.

If you see that it is spinning up, then you may just need to clean the discs or the optical lens. You can take a look at my tips and tricks in my profile for instructions on how to clean the optical reader lens. I wish you the best of luck in fixing the problem.

If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You
