Re: wont spin

Hi Tweetytiger,

Your Laser is most likely the cause of this problem. The lens and its frame work could be melting. This happens to all Slimline PS2's. To find out if this is your problem, you must take to console case apart to get a straight on view of the laser. Use magnifying glass to see the lens up close. It helps to also have a flashlight to shine on the lens while looking at it. You can tell if it is dirty or meltng very easy this way. Clean the lens if it is dirty. Use Glass Cleaner and q-tip. If the lens is not dirty or melting, clean the worm gear that moves the disc back and forth

If you still have trouble, Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. On the next screen click on "Video Game Consoles" Find you a good repair shop for your PS2.

Ps3..wont play movies or games..???

It could be just because of a dirty laser lens. Try using some lens paper with some cleaning solution on it; I had the same problem once & this fixed it perfectly.

Need help with playstation slimline console not spinning disks when case is on

i dont understand why you could fix a problem by taking its shell off but... its possible the case was dislodged when it was on and put itself into a position where it impacted on the insides of the ps2. e.g pushing the laser out of place.

Won't spin

Hi, is it a slimline one cos sometimes the switch that tells the console that the doors shut breaks. U could try pushing it down gently too see if it activates but i cant be responsible for breakages or possible blindness if you look into the laser. LOL
