Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
A while ago, it was working. Then suddenly it won't. The disk doesn't spin, but it doesn't say anything about error reading disc. It goes directly to the browser screen.
My sons playstation 2 went to browser and after reading the only one solution of putting a cup on top of it, we did try that but we found that the problem was the silver piece had moved, so after we moved the silver piece toward the middle toward where the disk goes, then closed it, and put a little pressure on top and you could feel it turning , then we opened it back up, the silver part had moved back again, but the playstation started back working then without any pressure.. so my suggestion is move the silver part close to where the disk goes.and it will move itself back....It sure worked for us..I was beginning to think money down the drain for this playstation 2....thank God it worked so maybe it will work for you...

There's a post built into the Lid . It's the disc brake. When you put the lid down , it moves the brake out of the way allowing the disc to spin. If the post is broken , the brake stays on. No spin.
Either buy a new lid or find something to replace the post and glue it where the other one was.
Post dimensions are bout 0.080" by 0.250"
