I switched out the eye and the motor for the eye and now the disk wont spin, it spins for like a second and nothing more. got it to spin on a few tryes but it said disk read error. Thats when i knoticed the eye not moving so i replaced the motor for it and now the eye moves but the disk wont spin is it the motor or is the laser eye useless. i dont want to tare apart my PS2 again i spent too many hours on it already. I only bought the damn thing for 40 bucks. should i try to fix it or is it a loss cause and i should buy a new one...???? ***For an AMITURE I give myself Kootoes (sp???) to Me! for being a blond and not really knowing what the hell im doin.....

Re: disk wont spin
Are you a cute blond? i give you alot of credit, but your going about it wrong. 1.you need to know if there is red/blue coming out of the laser. 2.is the laser focusing (moving up and down) 3.the spindle height has to be at the correct height for the laser to read the disk (thus spinning it) and the spindle also had had problems with this unit. (you can clean it up ) 4. once it spins the disk it has to read the TOC (table of contents)which means it has to move to the inner most part of the cd 5 send me you name address and if your busy friday! lol

Ok, pirated or burned cd/dvd/games, not unlike the first versions of the psx or ps1, caused the motor to work excessively, causing quick wear and tear. I would replace the eye, and the motor as an assembly, if you have some parts just laying around. If you are thinking of buying them, it might be cheaper just to replace the system with the current 9x PS2 system. Good luck.
This problem could be one of three things.
1 - Your CD is scratched so badly that the PS2 is unable to read the data on it.
To check if this is the problem try the disk on a friends PS2, if this is the problem there are a number of off the shelf CD scratch fixers available.
2 - Your disk motor is broken.
Sometimes this happens when the console gets on in the years, its the thing that makes your disk spin. To check if this is the problem note the disks position when you put it in, if it is in the same position after you receive the error and remove it, the problem is with the motor. To fix this you would need to speak with Sony or someone specializing in Consoles to fix or replace it.
3 - Your laser is broken.
Again, this sometimes happens as the console gets older, if the problem is not one of the two above it is this. Again you would have to speak to either Sony or a shop that works with consoles to fix or replace it.
there must be a problem with your motor which spins the disk after the cover is closed......or the power connection 2 the motor must be broken...if ur ps2 is in warranty period take it to a sony showroom......or take it to a shop where mod chips are installed....they maybe able to help you.
ok...well all of you people are just **** him!
the actual problem is that you probably dropped the ps2 and the case lid got a bit lose......
what you have to do (if you dont want to buy a whole ps2 case again) is tap the ps2 on the top of the lid when it goes into the cd browser screen and it will work perfectly fine
just make sure you dont tap i too hard or else we will have another problem...lol!
