    my ps2 slim spinner wont spin to read my game

  • Anonymous Aug 10, 2008

    I would like to know how to take it apart in order to have a look in the inside to see if I can fix the problem

  • rwk007 Oct 05, 2008

    My power recently went out, and when it did not only did it kill my Wii (which I think needs a new power adapter plug) but also seems to have messed up my PS2 (slim) which when I insert a disk, simple goes green, fidgets, and resets to red. If I have to take it apart, how do I? What else can anyone recommend??

Mine was dropped and I had the same problem. When I took it apart. the corkscrew that runs the laser back and fourth came out of its bracket on the end opposite the motor, I pushed it back in place and it is working great again. Take a look there.

Hey, My PSP also dropped and it had the same problem; Not spinning the disc, let alone reading it.
So I took it apart. Here's The link if you want to know how the ***** it is 'taken' apart.

In my case it was just spinning rod from the motor that was unhooked, so I hooked it up, (Be careful there's a bearing in the small black knob at the end of it) and my PS2 worked.

I have the same problem and i was told to replace the spinner with one from an old cd player. that or just oil it and wipe it clean.

Getting a disc error when turning on the ps2 with ps2 games, but it works with ps1 games...!


Theres a wheel in the disc drive that controls the elevation of the lens. To mod your ps2 to read burnt ps2 games ONE would alter the height of the lens by adjusting the wheel ever so slightly. There are online tutorials in the precise adjustments for different disks. (one height reads only ps1 games, another height reads ps1 and ps2 games, and one more height reads ps1/ps2 and burnt ps1/ps2 games) Your best bet would probably be to just purchase another ps2 used, but if you want to do it yourself, you can.

PS2 stopped spinning.


Laser issue is a commom problem on the ps2.The laser actually is controlling the spinning as well on ps2 machine and on the new ps3 too.
When the disk start, the spinner receive a kick back from the laser and after then that start the normal operation.
If the laser don`t send any impulse to the spinner the machine recognize a danger situation ang go on protection and stop the spinning process.
Replacing your laser will certanly solve your problem.
