Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

Laser Wont fire

Hi,

I wonder if you can help me. My slimline ps2 stopped working as the disc would not spin. I looked on the interenet for a solution and most people stated that it is usually the laser. I opened my ps2 up and sure enough the lens on the laser was fried. I bought a new laser and fitted it. I held down both lid sensor switches and turned it on to test it. The laser moved up and down but the disc does not spin. I was also told that the disc motor would not spin unless the laser fires. The laser is not firing as i cant see any light coming from it. I dont know what else to do to make it work. Hopefully you guys may have a solution for me. Will be much appreciated

Cheers

Nigel

I had the very same problem with my ps2. What I had found was that I had indeed gotten a nonfunctioning laser. After I installed another new laser, the system functions without any problem. I hope this information helps you.

PS2 Slim Disc Wont Spin


Sounds like the laser has gone out. The unit will not try to spin unless the laser can see the disc. A new laser can be picked up on ebay for less than $10

Disc wont spin


There are 4 reasons a disc won't spin on the Slim PSP. The most common is a failed laser.

1. Failed laser -- the disc will not spin up to speed, or not spin at all, due to a bad laser. If you close the PS2 with no disc inside, the ps2 will never spin the disc. If you chose the PS2 with a disc inside but a bad laser, it still thinks no disc is inside and will not spin.

2. Lid closed sensors. There are two of them. One on the motherboard and one on the reset switch. These sensors let the PS2 know that the lid is closed. If one or both of these break, the disc will never spin because the PS2 will think the lid is still open.

3. Damaged case. If the case of the PS2 is damaged, the two parts of the lid that are supposed to press the lid-closed sensors will never press them.

Please.. help me... my ps2 slimine is comepletely ruined..


Since you "smashed" which made things much worse (been there, done that). It was probrably fixable but now that it scratches I can only assume that the lens (laser) is scratched and damaged "beyond repair". The only suggestion I have, if you really want to fix it is to replace the lens and probrably the disc tray too. Fot the trouble it's worth too fix and the fact that there is no guarantee that it will even work after you fix it, your best bet is too buy a new one or at least a refurbished one.

Disk wont spin


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.
