Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

My ps2 game disks won't spin

I got a ps2 slim for christmas which was around 3 months ago and there is a little box when you open it up with a orange like slip attached to it. Well the problem is the box never moved before until a couple of days ago when i put in a disk and a loud tapping noise was heard. The box had been moved up to the disk spinner and was keeping the disks from spinning. I turned it off because maybe i though it overheated or something and we even set it upright and the next day we tried again and that's when i realized it was the box thing rubbing up on the disk spinner. What i would like to know is can it be fixed or do i have to buy a new one all together. Thank you.

Looks like the disk isnt spinning - any ideas what to do?


Yes. There are three reasons why your Slim PS2 disc might not spin.

1. Bad laser. This is the most common issue.
2. Bad case: if your PS2 dropped or is banged around a lot, the case could become loosely closed and even though it is closed, the PS2 thinks it is still open.
3. Bad sensor(s): The PS2 has 2 sensors to let it know that the lid is closed. Once the lid is closed, the laser does its thing.

Ps2 will only play a couple games


hey men. my name is ekeocha chidi michael from nigeria a game freak just like u. b4 condemning ur ps2 try the following:

1. do a total clean up.e open it up n clean it up wit compressed air or a static free rag.
2. realign the lens spinner angle. if u are really using the slim, u wud see 4 screws around the lens n motor. it is usually supported by rubber springs. turn each screw about 18 degrees. then test the game. keep doing it until the game starts workin. this is the ultimate solution it could take a long period of time but if u are lucky just a couple of minutes.
3. change the lens.
4. change the cooling fan.
5. take d console to a specialist.
if these dnt solve ur probs ur ps2 is officially condemned

Disk wont spin


First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.

Many Problems regarding PS2 Slim


Hi NateQ, Sorry about no one paying attention to your problem for so long. I just got started about a month ago. I have been repairing video Game consoles for over a decade though. Your problem is that your slim has a melted down laser and lens assembly. The unit is dirty. You will need a new disc drive and a thorough cleaning to get it back in service. The problem about the power light is due to excessive dust buildup shorting out the components on the motherboard. The video output is also comprimised by dust and dirt. The disc spinning is possibly comprimised by hair wrapped around the disc drive spindle. If you want, I can thoroughly detail clean your PS2 slim and replace the disc drive for $38 plus shipping both ways. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
