Ps2 Disk won't spin unless pressure applied

i had the same problem and i could fix it.

but you i'll have to open your ps2, and then you will notice a little black switch in the on the top of link image:

now, open the switch (you i'll see a little wire metal inside) clean the inside part of the switch, and "bend" a little ( til you can make sure that will make contact when the lid is closed) and then close the switch.

sorry for my bad english. =P

i hope this help.

Ps2 scph 77001 won't play backups on swap magic 3.6

This is a problem that has too many IF's in it lol. Let's take it from the top shall we?

When you said that you owned other PS2's were they the thick ones or the slim ones. Swap magic works best in the "thick older" models. In these new slimline ones it's got issues. That model number you posted belongs to a slimline model.

So since you're using a slimline model, I have to ask, Have you blocked the 2 sensors that you need to block in order to use swap magic. The slimline models are not like the older thick models. You need to block two sensors under the flip top so when you open the flip top the PS2 still thinks there is no swapping going on. If you have not blocked these sensors head over to and start watchin vids with seach "how to block slim PS2 sensors" or "how to block slimline PS2 sensors" out of the three sensors you only really need to block two. If you have not done this at all, that is reason why it's not working. On older PS2 models you used a slidecard or some form of a flip top to swap out your disks. Nothing has changed on these slimline models. The PS2 still needs to be tricked out so it doesn't think you're swapping disks in and outa the system.

Hope that helps,

Slimline PS2 only plays PS1 Games and not PS2

Clean the LAsers Lens with Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass cleaner, then dry the lens. Try it see if that gets it going again.

If not your lasers lens and supporting frame is probably melting down. You will need a new laser.
Click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" Pick a good repair shop.

Hi Cyberclash,

If your disc spins and seems to load up you have a bad Video output connector problem or bad A/v Cable. If your system does not boot up, the Motherboard is shot. Click on " REpair Directory" at the bottom of this screen and find a Playstation Repair shop to help you out. They will be listed under "Video Game Consoles" in the directory.
