There are quite a few things that can cause a disc read error on the slim PS2. The most frequent is a bad laser, however, here is some useful troubleshooting info:

1. "Lid Closed Sensors" There are two "lid closed sensors" in the slim PS2. In a fall, it's possible that one or both have become damaged. Remove the top of the PS2 and try depressing both sensors with a game inside. The laser should move up and down at least???

IF YES, try again with the lid on... if the laser doesn't move when you close the lid, then the top casing of your PS2 cracked in the fall and is no longer depressing the lid closed sensors.

==> If the laser moves up and down OK but does not read discs, your laser was damaged in the fall. See below for a website with more troubleshooting info, pictures, and replacement cases and lasers.

IF NO, you have a bad lid closed sensor -- these are not really replaceable easily -- you may be better off replacing the whole PS2 if one or both of these lid closed sensors goes bad.

The screen is blank and it won't read the CDs


Newer PS2 have a high failure rate on the drives. Gears in drive are probably stripped or worn, try turning the PS2 on it's side or even upside down. But this is really just a band-aid if it works. The drive itself is busted..Try to go for a new driver

My sons ps2 fell on the floor now the disk wont spin how can i fix it


quite honestly with todays advancing technology fixing a ps2 is not worth it. buying a new or preowned one could in fact be cheaper. so i would opt for that as fixing it is more or less an unviable option

PS2 was dropped, now disc won't spin and can't be read.


I just looked at a friend's PS2. Same story, tripped over cord, unit fell to floor. Unit powers up and sys. config. screen comes on but the drive didn't seem to be spinning up. Opened the case and found that the shaft of the drive motor for the laser tray had popped out of it's centering retainer ( little black bushing/holder). With the top off the unit, looking at the unit from the front, on the right side in the rear corner you'll see the motor. The worm shaft (bronze colored rod) runs towards the front of the unit. Where it ends it should sit centered in a black plastic holder, if it's off to the side a little pressure will pop it back in. Put the cover back on, and power it up, you should hear the drive spinning up. If it does you should be set. Hope this helps.

PS2 door is broke


I'm sorry but you can't do anything now, you need a new PS2. It is configured to run in a cretain way, and by undoing that you can't make it back to where it was in factory.

My PS2 fell on the floor!


Use to have this problem alot, there is a track on the under side of the tray a little plastic pin follows, it has jumped the track, do not force it closed or you could break the track, hopefully it isnt broken already. Have you ever opened a ps2 before?

Corrupted data


Two possible solutions. REplace the motherboard yourself. Send the PS2 to www.playstationclinic.com. I run the Playstation Clnic, and can replace your motherboard for you. This problem sounds like you actually bricked a PS2. unheard of.
