Hey Tyler 2,

Try cleaning it. If this thing doesn't have a warrenty, feel free to open it up. Be very careful of the sensative hardware, but take a look at the tray, and remove any dust that you see with some sort of napkin, or even a spray-duster.

If this doesn't work, then it may be time for a new Ps2. The dvd-rom in them usually have a lifetime of 4-5 years as I've seen.

It wont spin the disk i put disks in it and it wont read

There's a plastic post on the underside of the Lid ( if you dont find one there ,it's broken off)..Thats the disk brake post. When you close the lid it moves the brake out of the way allowing the disk to spin

If the post is ok, clean the laser lens ( gently with a cotton swab)

Disk wont spin

The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.

Here was my situation.

I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.

Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.

This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.
