Re: disk

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.

My playstation 2 disk tray wont spin

the thing is, there can be 2 things.
  • The motor that spins the discs has gone bad. you cant do anything then, just pay the local dealer 20$, he'll fix it for ya
  • Or, your Disc tray is not closed properly. For solving this, try to keep somehitng heavy upon the disc tray, and then try.
  • Please give ratings promtly :)

Disk wont spin

are you a cute blond? i give you alot of credit, but your going about it wrong. need to know if there is red/blue coming out of the laser. the laser focusing (moving up and down)
3.the spindle height has to be at the correct height for the laser to read the disk (thus spinning it) and the spindle also had had problems with this unit. (you can clean it up )
4. once it spins the disk it has to read the TOC (table of contents)which means it has to move to the inner most part of the cd
5 send me you name address and if your busy friday! lol
