Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
Sony ps2 model 7701, will not play any disk, will not spin any disk. Have ensured all band strip connections are firmly in place. Have checked for dust, this seems rediculous as dust enough to stop the disc from spinning would surely be evident, but cleaned the lense any way. seems much more likely that the "internal hard drive", if these things has such a thing is not telling the device to read. I hardly think the drive itself is bad, as the boy only has two games and only got one of them to work, and he hated it. sat with him while i forced hime to spend some time trying it before writing it off. I know the box only has about two hours of use on it. We got it as a gift and have no recipt info so this is this little boxes last horrah!
Any one have a clue for me!?!?!?
I run the Playstation Clinic and we see this all the time with your model of PS2. What we find is the laser lens is melted. This happens when the Console is left on overnight and reading a Cd or DVD and the disc is dirty. The focusing coils heat up from focusing so much and the heat builds up so much that the lens and its mount melt. you can look at the lens with a magnifying glass or Jewelers loupe to see up close. You may be lucky and find the lens is costed with something you can clean off.
Your PS2 does not have a built in Hard drive. You seem to be skilled at electronics so do this, and se if your laser lens is melted and beyond repair. Cleaning the lens with Alcohol will haze the lens over and do the same thing. Replace the laser if needed. new lasers come with a Solder blob to protect against static during shipment. The solder blob needs to be carefuoly removed before installation.
You can click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then on the next screen click on "Video Game Consoles". Pick a good Playstation Repair shop if you think you need help in getting this repaired.

I followed the experts advice in adjusting the volt settings, and it worked!! amazing! turned the pots 1-2 degrees just as described and i'm sitting here right now watching Batman on my ps2 slim! And i was gonna change out the laser, now i might not have to! a friend of mine has a silver ps2 slim and it plays anything you put in it! i dont know why this one is tempermental? its a black ps2. i'm sure there really is no difference but the case is different. i guess it really does matter how that little laser pot is turned up! thanks Mrfixit jb!
