If the laser doesn't see a disc, then it will not try to spin. First try cleaning the laser eye with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. If this doesn't work, then the laser has probably gone out. A new laser can be purchased on ebay for less than $10.00

Ps2 slim spindle dont spin


If your spindle has stopped spinning, it will most likely be 1 of 2 problems. Either your spindle motor has burnt up, or even though it is very unlike, a lead wire that supplies the power to the spindle has became disconnected. Now, if the case it the burnt up spindle motor, there are hundreds of motors for every kind of PS on, of course, E-Bay. If the problem is for some reason, a soldered wire has broken from the motor. It is very simple to re-attach the lead with a quick touch from a soldering iron. I hope this has helped.

My ps2 slim is leaving rings on my games???????


I think the motor spindle is damaged , as the motor spindle holds the disc up or it could the lens assembly being misaligned which causes the lens to be angled and scratch the disc

i recommend you to look at the site http://www.forums.gamewinners.com/forums/showthread.php?t=513070#Basic%20servicing for servicing if possible (slimline is somewhere at the bottom)

Sounds like a motor issue, not a laser issue.

Ps2 ver 4 unit will not work unless I lean it on two cases


The fatboy systems have 2 spindles that hold your disk in place so that the laser can read it. If you have a fatboy than the problem is probably one of the spindles is off balance which will make your disk spin off balance.
The slimlines have 3 balls that you click the disk into it. If you have a slimline then you probably have a ball loose. If it is the newer slimline it isnt a ball but a small plastic piece.
If you are savvy with fixing things then you could find the replacement pieces on ebay. If not you will need to trade in or buy a new system.

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.

PS2 Disc does not spin


just because you see read doesn't mean the laser is good.
the laser has to read the toc (table of contents) for it to read the toc it must be at the beginning, it must be at the right depth from lens to cd and the spindle must spin. now if you have to spin the spindle that means it most like is not reaching the beginning of the cd or the spindle motor is bad.
