Ps2 slim spindle dont spin

If your spindle has stopped spinning, it will most likely be 1 of 2 problems. Either your spindle motor has burnt up, or even though it is very unlike, a lead wire that supplies the power to the spindle has became disconnected. Now, if the case it the burnt up spindle motor, there are hundreds of motors for every kind of PS on, of course, E-Bay. If the problem is for some reason, a soldered wire has broken from the motor. It is very simple to re-attach the lead with a quick touch from a soldering iron. I hope this has helped.

Ps2 drive failure in slim models

My PS2 has been played so long, let those PS2's run for a minute, usually it takes a minute or two kicking on for those, I have one that takes a while to kick on. If that doesn't work then you just can't do anything, sounds like something is just messed up, when I have a spare PS2 i'll drop it and see what happens for you.

ps2 can play dvds but xbox needs a store bought xbox dvd remote to play dvds
the ps2 slim and the ps2 normal have a lot in common so thwere is not much difference, but the slim has a fliptop lid and the fat ps2 has a open and shut slide drive.If I were you I would get the slim because it is the only one you can get brand new nowadays. The xbox may have halo 1 and 2 but sometimes there are freezes on certain xboxes.

Disc doesnt spin , the lens dont move up and down , only lights red

Sounds like a motor issue, not a laser issue.

That link is for a new snake motor which moves the laser back and forth

This link is for a new spindle motor.

Won't work. disk won't turn

sounds like a faulty spindle. this is the part that spins your cd for the laser to read. if your using a fat ps2 its prolly the spindle. if your using a slim ps2 it could be the laser causing the problem not the spindle. the slim ps2 laser make the spindle work. if the laser isnt working right the cd might not spin or it might not spin fast enough or flat enough.

Play Station 2 Slim Model

Its called a spindle and you might have to replace the whole spindle motor assembly. Search online for one, there are loads of sites selling PS2 part (make sure you get the right model number or your new part might not work).

Alternately, if there are any computer/electronics fairs in your area you could try there. I needed a spindle motor for a scrap machine I was refurbing a few months ago and bought one from a computer fair for £2.

Here is a video tutorial on how to take your PS2 apart to replace the bit.

Many Problems regarding PS2 Slim

Hi NateQ, Sorry about no one paying attention to your problem for so long. I just got started about a month ago. I have been repairing video Game consoles for over a decade though. Your problem is that your slim has a melted down laser and lens assembly. The unit is dirty. You will need a new disc drive and a thorough cleaning to get it back in service. The problem about the power light is due to excessive dust buildup shorting out the components on the motherboard. The video output is also comprimised by dust and dirt. The disc spinning is possibly comprimised by hair wrapped around the disc drive spindle. If you want, I can thoroughly detail clean your PS2 slim and replace the disc drive for $38 plus shipping both ways. Contact
