Take it apart and see if the laser is moving up and down (focusing). If not, then the laser focus servo is bad. After it focuses, the spindle motor should turn and the disc should spin. Remove the spindle lock from the top of the drive case and before it spins quickly place the lock on the disc before it spins to hold the disc in place. If all these processes occur and it still doesn't read, check the lens to see if it's dirty or foggy - clean the lens with "Q" tip and alcohol. if this doesn't work, remove the disk and see if a red beam shines through the lens - if no beam, the laser is bad.
Here are the three possible problems according to your description in order of probability. One is that the laser needs cleaning. Two is that the laser is getting weak. Three is that the motor is not spinning the cd up to speed fast enough so that the table of contents can be read. The thing to try first is to take the unit apart with the power disconnected and clean the laser lens. A cotton swab dabbed with Windex usually works great. If that was not the problem, look at the motor spinning your cd. If there are any tiny openings in the motor put a drop of 3 in 1 oil in the opening and let it sit for awhile. The third of course involves replacing the laser assembly. Good luck. - Joe.
The spindle (spin) motors don't usually go out. The most common reason for the game to not spin is the laser. If the laser doesn't see a disc then it will not try to spin it. You can pick up a new laser off of ebay for less than $10
Either your laser lens, lens drive, or the motor that spins the disc has stopped working. Thy cleaning the lens first and if that doesn't work, I hate so say it may need replacing or repaired by a professional.
If your other games still work, take the new one back to the store you purchased it from. If your other games are giving you problems then you probably have a laser problem. If you can hear the disc spin, you generally just need to clean the laser lens within the drive. If the disc doesn't even spin, you either have a completely dead laser unit, or a bad spindle motor. Lets just hope it's the laser unit, they only cost like 50 bucks, I don't even know where you could get a new spindle motor. Best of luck
you will either have to have the DC Laser Lens Big Motor or the complete DC Laser Collectivity replaced. other then that try cleaning the laser and any parts you can and using air to blow the system out those are my only suggestions for you hope that helps.
Parts for them are fairly cheap on ebay and other online shops.
Well, there is 2 switch. one at the back left of the cd tray and one one the reset /power switch.
both sitch have to be close in order for the disk to spin.
If you try this dont forget to put a disk on the spindle as you will start the laser. this is for your safety.
then, if the disk does not spin, then you can try replacing the laser. or at least verify the ribbon cable that is hook to it. if the ribbon cable is not well inside the plug the laser might move but again the disk won t spin.
it is related to each other, the PS2 seem to verify the laser prior to start the spindle so what ever happend to the laser affect the spindle.
and then, if you buy a new laser lens, don't forget to remove the soldering bridge. it is a small ball that is use to avoid static while shiping the lens.
most of the seller will include a small peace of paper with procedure and also there is web site with picture of this soldering bridge.
I replace some of them, and I have to say that the small plastic lock for the ribbon cable to the lens has been an issue and the soldering bridge another one.
but I got most of the PS2 back and running by replacing the laser.
I hope this will help you.
Don't bother changing the lens. If i understand you correctly you have damaged the motor or some circuitry leading to it.
I hope this helps! good luck on finding a new one, they are abundant right now!
