Sounds like the motor is bad on it, your best bet would be to replace the drive cause you don't know what other kind of damage may have happened to the drive.The lasers I know you can get seperately but not the motor.

My PS2 has stopped working!!!


spindle motor went bad it sounds like. Open up the ps2 and inside of there, you'll see a ribbon for the drive, take it off of the board and then reseat it.

Now put the top back on and try the drive again. If it still doesn't spin then the drive will need to be replaced.

The disk wont spin or register when its put in. We think it may have fallen at one point.


It sounds like to laser inside the ps2 is broken. If the console was dropped it could have damaged the eye of the laser and it wont read or recognize games inserted in the machine.

Ps2 slim will not spin disk i have cleaned everything inside everything seems to be working normally yet the disk wont spin


If you have removed the cover and cleaned the glass laser eye lens unit, then the laser lens motor is faulty.

PS2 was dropped, now disc won't spin and can't be read.


I just looked at a friend's PS2. Same story, tripped over cord, unit fell to floor. Unit powers up and sys. config. screen comes on but the drive didn't seem to be spinning up. Opened the case and found that the shaft of the drive motor for the laser tray had popped out of it's centering retainer ( little black bushing/holder). With the top off the unit, looking at the unit from the front, on the right side in the rear corner you'll see the motor. The worm shaft (bronze colored rod) runs towards the front of the unit. Where it ends it should sit centered in a black plastic holder, if it's off to the side a little pressure will pop it back in. Put the cover back on, and power it up, you should hear the drive spinning up. If it does you should be set. Hope this helps.

PS2 disk not playing


Go to www.PlaystationClinic.com The Laser optics may be misaligned or signals from the laser is restricted in some way or another. If the laser does not detect the disc, and send the signal to the Disc Processor, the motor will not spin.

My Slim Ps2 crashed!!


hi is your ps2 the one where the lid lifts up to put the disk in if so their can sometimes be a problem with switch on the lid when you press the button to load the game push down on the lid and hold it down and if this is the problem then the game will load.
My ps2 has this problem and i have to put books or bottle of somekind on the lid to keep the lid pressed down far enough so that the switch works and loads the game.

Also you could try cleaning the laser lense you can buy a lense cleaning disk and that will clean it for you and if thats the problem as moving it might have caused the dust to move inside a bit affecting the laser have a go at these ideas then get back to me ok

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
