Disc wont spin in our play station 2 and lid is closed all the way
Their could be two things:
1. No Spin At All:
If your spindle hub is NOT SPINNING AT ALL,
NOT EVEN 1/2 OF A TURN, it may be bad or unplugged.
A tell tale sign of it being unplugged is if you hit
eject, the laser moves down the rail, and starts
grinding because the PS2 keeps trying to move it
down the rail even though it hit the end. There's a
small switch on the spindle hub that tells the unit
to stop pushing the laser because it's reached the
end. Spindle hubs usually do not go bad by themselves,
usually either the PS2 too a bad fall and it became
bent [try spinning it by hand], or someone the cable
out and put it in too many times [or incorrectly] and
the silver contacts on the cable were detached.
2. 1/2 spin:
1. A dirty laser. Try cleaning the laser and see if it helps.
If you can see crust or dust covering the laser eye, it may
not be strong enough to read anything at all. If the laser
looks clean, this is probably not the issue.
2. An unplugged laser cable. These things normally do not come
out by themselves, but if you opened the ps2 that was spinning
OK to clean the laser and/or removed the laser to clean it,
plugged it in, now it's spinning 1/2 of a turn, the laser cable
may not be in securely. If it is in securely, make sure it is
plugged into the motherboard end properly.
3. A dead laser. On models 30001, 35001, and some 30001R, this
is the most likely issue. These models are old and the original
lasers were a bit unreliable.
