The ps3 will not play any games,but the power comes on

The most likely culprit is that your laser has failed. Usual symptoms are before complete failure usually hard to play and type of disk. Might play cds but not blu ray or may play cd but not dvd then one day nothing plays and the drive may not even spin up. Its a pretty simple fix for around $50 order the correct laser for your console and then its basically a simple process go to youtube and search ps3 laser fix and you will see many step by step videos that show how to do it.Just need a small tip phillips a larger phillips screw driver and a #10 torx head screw driver.Ebay has good deals on new lasers just make sure you get the one for your particualr model ps3 as there are 3 laser for different drives.Your console model will let you know usually starts like chech on sticker on the back of console

The ps2 works fine, but when i try to play a game, it doesnt sense the cd. it doesnt even spin. anything i could do?

barely put any oil where the spinner and ps2 are connected on the top, but clean the oil off. if that doesnt work your motherboard might have chipped at where the spinner usually spins at.

Ps2 disc wont spin and laser wont come on

it seems there has been a malfunction within your CD Drive, this is what is causing the CD drive to not spin or read the disc. these problems can be only generally resolved by either getting the console repaired/replaced unfortunately.

The PS2 will still turn on and run because the CD Drive does not dictate whether the console works or not, but because the CD Drive is broken, you will not be able to play games or watch DVD Films unless you have the CD Drive Repaired.

Hope this Helps ?!

Unreadable disc

i used to think firmware but that is a very rare case. try getting a new laser, if that doesn't work swap the motor that spins the disc around but mark where the screws are before you remove them. good luck!

Disk on ps2 slimline won't spin

yes when you open your ps you can remove the lense by using small screw driver.
if you remove it you can blow very well by using air compresser

Hi Beth,

You need to take it apart, and get  everything back in its place.

REmove  8 or 10 Screw covers on bottom of your PS2.  open the case carefully, so as not to pull a cable loose from the motherboard. The Cd player cover needs to be removed to get your CD out. Remove 2 or 4 screws to gain access.  You could actually do this in less than 30 minutes. Go for it Beth
