I actually accidentally dropped the ps2 slim and the impact MOVED a MECHANICAL component in the laser unit... seach on youtube how to disassemble the ps2 slim. after opening the case, you'll see the laser unit. now, the actual laser lens glides along a pair of 'rails' - if we can use that term - the impact simply tilted on the 'rails' sidewards, which prevented the lens from gliding towards the centre of the disc and spin it. the very rail that i needed to correct is the gold/copper coloured one. just push such that it becomes aligned parallel to the the other rail. you'll hear a click when it's in the correct position. now, i stress nothing was broken... and tbh i think that sony designed it to be easily moved off so that they can charge you a whole new laser unit... i'm sorry about the long read and i hope it helps you... please spread the word.

My advice, trash it and buy a new one, send it to a repair man, or, if you have experience in the field, get a replacement disk drive off ebay for the same ps2, or the same ps2 with a different problem(they are cheaper when they are broken) and i can walk you through the replacement process. Though, I advise you, if you are not shure, just get it fixed by a qualified professoinal.

I have a playstation 2 slim here. It wont spin the


Is that the only disc you seem to be having the problem with?? If so try getting the disc repair kit and using that. I had the same problem with mine but it was only some of the discs. The ps2 slim can be very sensitive and even the slightest defect in a disc will cause it not to recognize there is even a disc there.

Disks wont spin on new laser


Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.

First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
