After EXTENSIVE searching on the web, and messing around within my PS2, I just stumbled across a really obvious, but overlooked (by me at least) clamp that holds the cable that goes from the disk drive to the circuit board directly underneath it. (The wide one that is alone from the others, its orange in mine). When re-connecting this wire, I thought it had gone all the way in, but by mistake, had not managed to find this clamp. After opening it (with my precision screwdriver) slipping in the cable, and closing it again, re-connecting all other cables. The problem is now fixed.

My ps3 disc dose not spin and i dont know why becase i dont want to replace a part like the laser or spiner and only replace one part and need the other, is there a way to test what specific part is broken

We work everyday with ps3 bluray, the reason it wont spin is because your bluray lense is not detecting a DVD as for that it thinks there nothing so there no reason to move the spinner. i would recommend you to buy a a full deck with spinner and lens on ebay.

Ps3 not spinning disc, replaced spindle motor, did not fix. Please help

Hi there, this is because the actual laser needs replacing, not the disc spinner motor. With the PS3 the laser reads the disc data type, whether it be a DVD, game , audio cd or blu ray movie. It then spins the disc up to the required read speed. When the laser is faulty is cannot read the disc type so will not spin at all.

Hope this helps

I put the game in but the disk does not spin

try cleaning the spinner and laser and make sure the spinner and game make contact to where they spin. it might be that your tray is kind of crooked and it misses the spinner to where the game wont spin.
