Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

2 Answers

My son's PS 2 motor will not turn. At first it just would not do anything. I have replaced the motor and laser assembly and the laser is now working good but the motor is still not working. It is at least now trying to read the disk but can't because the motor is still not running. Is there something I missed or could there be more problems with it.

PS2 slim laser and disc motor don't work


I may not be the laser asembly or anything you described because absolutely nothing happened when you put a disc in. I may be a little switch at the very front of the drive right at the bottom right (near the power button) that may be damged or not being pressed by an piece of plastic on the same place on the lid. That switch recognises if the lid is closed or not so it know when to stop or start a disc. Try closing the lid harder or pushing more on that switch. hope that helps!

I herd a strange clicking noise from my ps2


It sounds like the laser assembly has become faulty, the clicking you hear may be the sled mechanism trying to move and put the laser into place so that it can read the game, or could be the spindle motor trying to spin the disc for the laser to read it. My recommendation is to replace the whole laser assembly, which includes the sled mechanism as well as the spindle motor and laser. Good Luck.

PS3 Inserted media is not spinning


I had the same problem with my PS3, I changed my 400aaa and thought it would fix the disc not spinning problem. It was'nt until i bought another brand new laser that it started to work again. I have heard rumors that some of the lasers you buy (like from e-bay) work but dont work right. I wound up spending over $140.00 to find out that my "New" laser was a refurbished one from China and didn't read any of my media. I went to a U.S. seller and he got me a new laser with a warranty and I'll be damnned if it didnt boot right up and run after that.

Your PS2 is equipped with a cooling fan which keep it nice and cool, the only problem is that it sucks up dust in the process.

*** WARNING YOU MUST BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL ***
Take your PS-2 apart, you will see the "eye" or laser, this is something you NEVER touch!!!!

Do not use a air compressor, it will spray moister and it has to high of a PSI!!

Get a can of compressed air and hold it upright (do not tilt the can of air or shake it or it will spray nitrogen, freezing your PS-2) and spray the PS-2 with the air using 2 second burst, moving the PS ,not the air. Be sure to spray the "eye" and the housing.

Reassemble the PS-2 and it should work fine.

If not, you need to replace the laser.

Psp


This can by caused by one or more of the following conditions:

1- The device was dropped and the sensitive laser assembly broke. Get a new PSP.

2- The laser assembly is dirty. Clean it gently with a cotton swab and some isopropyl.

3- The games are dirty. Gently spin them and wipe with a soft cloth.

Psp2 not working


  1. SOLUTION FOR A SLIMLINE PS2
  2. Check to see if a Music cd will spin in the console
  3. Open flip lid and examine the reset switch - check to ensure the switch is intact - you are looking for a small lever which is made of lack plastic. If its not there you need a new reset switch
  4. If the laser is not moving at all you will need to open up the console (WILL OBVIOUSLY VOID YOU WARRANTY!)
  5. Check the PCB switch at the rear of the console. This part connects to the lid of the ps2 if thats is broken you will need to replace - difficult to source but they are available
  6. Check the ribbon cable underneath the PS2 Laser for any signs of damages
  7. Check the ribbon cables x 2 which attach the laser assembly to the motherboard
  8. Remove the motherboard metal shield and test the SMD (SURFACE MOUNTED) fuseon the underside of the board use a multimeter for this
  9. If your console passes all these tests the most likely cause is a blown laser which is a simple part to source via ebay etc.
  10. If your new laser does not fix your problem then you have a blown RS2004 chip which is expensive to replace and usually not economical to do.

Disc does not turn


Hi Brad1Christy,

The laser is either dirty or burned out. When the disc does not spin, it usually is because the controller does not see any initial data coming from the laser. Clean your laser and see if you get any response.
