Sounds like the lid of your PS2 may be damaged. If holding down the top starts a game up, but the PS2 will not start up by itself, something is preventing the case from holding down the switch on the motherboard that lets the PS2 know that the lid is closed.

Check out the website above for some troubleshooting info and a new lid, if you need it.

Error reading any dvd disks


Have you tried a DVD+/-RW ?

The noises that you are hearing will be the spindle motor trying to spin the DVD as the lifting presentation tray for the read/write head has not located, if the media is not spinning this will never be able to read the lead in on any DVD as it has not presented the disc in the correct place.

If is is out of guarantee then I suggest that you check to see if the DVD is spinning by removing the top cover with the power OFF then eject the tray and try to load the media a small touch of the DVD in the clockwise motion should cause the media to start spinning, this is for diagnosis only if this is the case then the spindle motor will need changing

Disk tray is not spinning


The way to fix this is to open the disk tray and blow inside for about thirty seconds getting the dust out of the way of the laser also blow across the disc tray and the surface of the disk. Then keep closing and opening the tray and it will start to read hopefully. if this does not work go out and buy a disc cleaner. it looks like a disc with sponges on it and when you insert it into the console it cleans the inside for you.

The machine will start a cycle normally, but after the timer reaches a certain point it stops counting down and the machine will continue to agitate until you force it to stop.


Thank you for verifying the model type so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A questions in this forum machine specific topic area.

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

You will need the Service Manual for support. I’m an owner like you with a solid repair skills on the machine and will try to help you DIY the repair if we can ID the issue through troubleshooting.

Do you have this condition in all wash cycles? Will a Quick Wash cycle complete? Do you see the Cycle Status LED ever indicate the machine has moved to the Spin Cycle during the wash cycle? This could be a Control Board failure but we need to troubleshoot.

I want to make sure the Wash basket will spin up with a Spin Only cycle selection. Can you select a Spin Only cycle with a empty wash basket. I would release the washer top so you can observe this test. I want to rule out a broken Clutch large wrap spring.

Page 33 of the Service Manual will show you how to release the washer top from the base. In Spin Only cycle raise the top just enough to make sure the wash basket is rotating Counter Clock Wise – CCW with the Spin Only cycle selected and operated.

If the above test doesn’t indicate an issue I would like you to try the Quick Service Cycle test on page 15 of the Service Manual and see if your FAV6800A will pass that test with no clothes in the washer. When you put the machine in Service Mode press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys until the machine beeps and the LED display reads 00. Then press Wash/Rinse Temp to start Quick Service Cycle test. Did the test complete with a PA indication in the display? It will only display the PA code for a few seconds. End of cycle will beep washer will unlock and Cycle Status LED will indicate complete.

Waiting for your reply….Rich

Just spins


This sounds like a samsung drive, the laser is probably dead or on its way out or it could also be the small belt that is stretched and to weak to shut the drive properly, either way the machine will need to be stripped down and repaired.

we can get this back to normal for you just email us at www.fixmyconsole.co.uk

Xbox 360 disk spins while ejecting


i had this same problem, so i figured, "what the hell?" i might as well open the dvd drive up and clean it out. so i looked for how to video for taking apart my 360 and opening the dvd drive on you tube( this voids your warantee of course) and i cleaned all the dust out with compressed air and swabs dipped in alchohol. this worked for me so i hope it works for you.
