Hello again. I just got the laser of my Slim PS2 replaced, but for some reason it won't spin any of my discs. I tried adjusting the pots and still no luck. The discs still spin with the old one however, but I want the new one to work.

Re: Disc won't spin after replacing laser
Have you replaced the laser yourself? before installing it you should remove a soldered joint on the laser, it is just like two points soldered together, just desolder that and put it back, it will work. Good luck

Could be simply a dusty laser lens. Try a cleaning CD first.
After that, it could be that the laser assembly has low power output. Some decks have the range to increase the laser power, but it's only a temporary fix. The emissions are dying so the laser assembly will need to be replaced sooner of later..
The laser pickup head has failed, or the pladder motor that spins the disc is open, or there is no voltage to the motor. Chances are the whole assembly will need to be replaced, but as a rule it is cheaper to replace the stereo.
Hello If it does not play the cleaner disc, just inspect whether the disc inserted in spins inside it. You can check this by open the upper cover of the player, and inserting a disc into it. If inserted disc spins inside, and the player won't read it, the fault is with its laser pickup unit, and it should be replaced with same type and number. If the disc dos not spins, the fault is with the sled motor [the motor that spins the inserted disc], has damaged, and should be replaced. OK.
Hello Check whether the inserted CD spins inside your unit or not. If it spins, and the set does not recogonize the disc, the laser pickup assembly has the trouble and should be replaced with same type and number. If it does not spins, the sled motor, the motor that spins the disc, is faulty and should be replaced. OK.
Your lens is repeatedly touching the disc. In the future, this could be a big issue, and it is a sign that your lens is breaking down. On the slimline models, specifically SCPH-70000 models or greater, the lasers are disposable just about. They weaken easily, and they stop working fast. You can get a new laser for about 20 dollars from some websites.
Check some of your discs. If you notice any circular scratches, you'll know that your lens is touching the disc. Does it still read PSX, PS2 games (including DVD-9 dual layer games like Guitar Hero) well? Does it read fast? Can you still watch movies on your PS2? If not, your lens is breaking and you'll need to replace it.
Hello Look whether the CD spins inside the set, after it has been loaded well. If not replace sled motor. Sled motor is one which do spins the disc inside. If disc spins inside, and the set do not read the disc, laser pickup unit is faulty, and should be replaced with same type and number. OK.
Did you pull top off to see if not spinning? If so then have you cleaned Disc? If so have you cleaned laser? If so then move lense with finger down tray and replugg in it should spin for a min. then try again with disc.
