Re: wont read disks
As I always suggest for consoles of this age, get a new one. You'll find PS1's with a few games on ebay for around a tenner nowadays.
Your console could have any number of faults, faulty/misaligned laser unit, faulty spindle motor, faulty lid catch sensor, and the cost of replacement parts would probably be more than a replacement 2nd hand console.

Hi there, Have you tried a lens cleaner kit? This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head. This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem. It is a common problem for any lens reading console. Regards
HI, the optics assembly has failed. the actual optical lens assembly will need to be replace in this case. you can try to clean the lens with a cleaning disk.. this may wake the laser. if the cleaning doesn't produce results, replacing the optical lens assembly will be the next move.
there is a small button in the slim that picks up the door open or closed. if the plactic pic on the lid is broke it will read as the door open even if the door is closed. you can takeit apar tand tape down this switch.
