The shaft of the spindle motor is bent. There is no way to straighten it out. I don't believe that this is available as a replacement part. The whole optical assembly needs to be replaced. This assembly will include this motor.

barely put any oil where the spinner and ps2 are connected on the top, but clean the oil off. if that doesnt work your motherboard might have chipped at where the spinner usually spins at.

Ps2 slim spindle dont spin


If your spindle has stopped spinning, it will most likely be 1 of 2 problems. Either your spindle motor has burnt up, or even though it is very unlike, a lead wire that supplies the power to the spindle has became disconnected. Now, if the case it the burnt up spindle motor, there are hundreds of motors for every kind of PS on, of course, E-Bay. If the problem is for some reason, a soldered wire has broken from the motor. It is very simple to re-attach the lead with a quick touch from a soldering iron. I hope this has helped.

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.

Does this happen to all of your Discs? If you know someone who also has a PS2, try to run your discs first on that PS2...If they worked, then probably either the lens of your PS2 needs to be replaced, or it only needs cleaning. Or it is also possible that your disc isn't inserted on the disc tray properly...and by "inserted properly " on the tray I mean is to make sure that the 3 pins on the spinner of your PS2 are sticking out of the hole on the DVD and thus gripping the disc...
