    Try a lens cleaner. It sounds like your console isn't recognizing the presence of disk.

You would be better off with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip actually. If you are able to, take the case off and blow out as much of the dust as you can, and give everything a thourough and gentle going over with alcohol + q-tip.

Disc wont spin


There are 4 reasons a disc won't spin on the Slim PSP. The most common is a failed laser.

1. Failed laser -- the disc will not spin up to speed, or not spin at all, due to a bad laser. If you close the PS2 with no disc inside, the ps2 will never spin the disc. If you chose the PS2 with a disc inside but a bad laser, it still thinks no disc is inside and will not spin.

2. Lid closed sensors. There are two of them. One on the motherboard and one on the reset switch. These sensors let the PS2 know that the lid is closed. If one or both of these break, the disc will never spin because the PS2 will think the lid is still open.

3. Damaged case. If the case of the PS2 is damaged, the two parts of the lid that are supposed to press the lid-closed sensors will never press them.

Ps2 not reading discs(disc arent even spinning)


Well, This has happened to me before. If you are insistent that you do not have to replace it, then see if a friend has an old ps2 he or she doesn't use anymore, because your motor is dead. Its not going to spin, and you need a whole new drive portion of the ps2. basically, your disk wont spin, and the laser wont read it. honestly, right now, Gamestop is selling ps2's for like 40$. you should just go buy a new one.
