Umm, the SCPH-70012, unlike the larger older units with the slide out drawer, has the laser lens right on top when you pop he lid, No need to disassemble.

if you have this problem with all disks.
Then i,d suggest a laser-head cleaning disk.
Also ensure that the disks are scratch-free, especially on the centre and outer edges ( Underside )
If these options fail, you have a weak or faulty laser-unit.

You need to replace the laser module. Get a replacement online or on ebay, swap it. that's it.

My playstation 2 disk tray wont spin

the thing is, there can be 2 things.
  • The motor that spins the discs has gone bad. you cant do anything then, just pay the local dealer 20$, he'll fix it for ya
  • Or, your Disc tray is not closed properly. For solving this, try to keep somehitng heavy upon the disc tray, and then try.
  • Please give ratings promtly :)

Disc does not spin

There is 2 switch, first is front switch (part of the lid you open to put discs in - disc tray) was broken. There is also one on the rear of the lid - without these contacting the switches - it will not power up laser or spin discs. check this..
