My ps2 will not spin the disk

sounds like the motor is bad on it, your best bet would be to replace the drive cause you don't know what other kind of damage may have happened to the drive.The lasers I know you can get seperately but not the motor.

There may be many problem that have occurred to make this happen, here is a list of the three most common:
  1. You MAY have a disc jammed into the PS2, making it impossible to open (and/or) close. This could have happened by someone accidentally putting one disc right on top of a disc that is in the PS2, and not taking the other game, movie, etc., out. How to fix? Best Buy, Circuit City. Another way this could have happened is: an earthquake, flood, SOMETHING, may have happened that made a disc fall out of the tray (while INSIDE of the PS2) and jam it up, to fix this, you have to do the same as the first option. 
  2. The motor is broken, this is pretty self explanatory, the motor that makes the disc drive open and close is broken, solution? Same as before.
  3. Your PS2 has reached it's prime, and gone over the hill, sorry buddy. :(
I hope you found this helpful, sincerely- animation508 (youtube username)

Disc doesnt spin , the lens dont move up and down , only lights red

Sounds like a motor issue, not a laser issue.

That link is for a new snake motor which moves the laser back and forth

This link is for a new spindle motor.

PS2 rock band disk

Ok, I was having the same problem. You need to take your playstation apart and clean the laser with some alcohol. Only use alcohol as it dries faster and clear. Might as well clean the rest of the inside as well. you will be surprised at the dust it collects. After I done this my works fine.

Unread disks

1.just take the disk out for a min and give a good wipe and without spittin, blow inside the umd tray

The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
or it could just be the laser. can also try and clean the laser lens.

Game not working

okay, maybe the game is not compatible with the ps2, for eg if ur in europe they make the ps2's PAL compatible, if you're in USA they make em NTSC. other probs might be that clicking noise, doesnt sound too promising!! i dunno but dont get angry and smash the ps2 on the top, that wont help at all!! (like i did ^^)

you REALLY dove into an issue here.
Several things that happen {depending on the version of PS2 you have}
The door may not be closing enough to signal the sensor, one way to solve this is add more weight to the door, I have added a few cd cases to the top and this solved it. However if this doesnt work then its an issue inside with 2 secret Sony buttons that need reset or the cap placed back on.
This will get into an issue of you opening it up.
here is a link to the instructions.

Hope this helps :0)

try the latter first before diving into opening that thing.

PS2 will not play DVD

Make sure the disk is compatible and not damaged.Try playing another disk and see what happens if you still do not get anything you may want to consider a xbox or 360 with remote control for dvds. Also check to see if ps2 has a remote for playing dvd disc. never worry!!
