I beleave you can use a key or similiar to press down the switch which the cover presses down when its closed.

That should make the playstation think that the cover is closed and start to read the disk after you power it on. there you could see if it spins it or not.

If it doesnt spin even if the cover is closed then I supose some repairs need to be done.

I'm not sure if its worth it.

heres one being sold for less than 20 usd

I think it might be cheaper to buy a working one instead of replaceing the parts, the mechanic probably charges 20 alone for the work.

I'm trying to play a game on my Xbox. This one won't work, but others will. I need help!


this sounds bizzar but rub toothpaste around the ring and it will give a temporary fix, or go to gamestop and say I got this for my birthday and its not working and they will most likely give you a new copy

NHL 12 freezes when trying to substitute a created team in GM Mode


Hi, the reason why the game keeps freezing at that certain point is most likely due to a bug in the game. I know NHL 12 use to have freezing issues that weren't patched. Since the game is outdated there is no fix for this issue. I would recommend maybe updating to a newer version of the game (NHL 17 etc.) and playing from there.

The game cannot be read on our ps2, but the ps2 works for other games. the disk looks fine. what can we try to get this game to play?


Even if the game isn't scratched, you should try holding it under a light to see if there are any fingerprints or smudges on the disc. You can try cleaning the disc with a lint-free cloth if you've got one, though I've never had trouble with a cotton t-shirt. Wipe from the center of the disc straight towards the outer edge. Do this for the entire disc and try it again.

If that doesn't work, please update this issue with the error message you're seeing if any. Does the disc show up in the PS2 browser? Do you get a disc read error? Does the screen just go black when you try to play the game?

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

Avatar: The Last Airbender game for Gamecube won't play all the way through?


Holy C! I had the same problem and even bought a new system cause I thought it was broken! Turns out that the games are defective and there is no way to fix them. Now you can pick up copies of this game at your local Dollar Store! (NO JOKE!)

One game will play then the others say check owner manuel and wont play


  1. Some games may need to be cleaned. Clean each disc with a soft, slightly damp cotton cloth (use water only). Clean them from center towards the edges; do not use a circular motion. DO NOT use paper. Once they are cleaned, dry the disc using a dry portion of the cloth and wiping in the same style as you did to clean the discs. After all of the water is gone, let the discs sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting any of them into the Nintendo GameCube.
  2. Check for Unlicensed products. Make sure that you're using only licensed products with your Nintendo system. Unlicensed products are not tested for compatibilty and may not work correctly with all games. Try playing the game without the unlicensed accessory.
  3. Ensure the games are being loaded properly. With the power turned off on the system, replace a Game Disc (printed side up) in the system, press down gently on the Game Disc until it locks on the center hub. Close the Disc Cover and press the power button ON to see if the game comes on the screen. Try this with a few of your games.
If Troubleshooting doesn't fix the problem, and it is happening with all your games, then your system will need repair. Check out our convenient repair options.

My Bose Wave radio/cd won`t play cd`s anymore. The radio works great. The cd player worked tonite, the would stick in a certain part of a song. Very intermittent. Now tries to read the disc, then says disc...


"I`ve used an aerosol air can to clean thru the cd slot"What type? not an "empty" can of paint, hairspray, chemical of some sort i hope. Compressed air at most I hope. If not, that's your Bose out the window!
The lense sounds like it needs a clean, you can buy these in disc for with tiny brushes on. Made by BIB and Allsop amongst many brands
