Ps2 wont SPIN disks it tries to read and spins for like 1sec PS2 SLIM


If it's having issues reading ANY kind of discs (CD's, DVD's, PS2 games) it might be due to a malfuctioning lense or a disk rotator motor issue.

Since it's agaisnt the PS2 TOS to modify or take apart your PS2 you should contact customer support or tech support with this issue.

If there's that option is not aviable you should try ordering the required parts online from different distribuitors: http://www.eachgame.net/category-88-b0-min0-max0-attr-1-sort_order-DESC.html

Disk wont spin


The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.

Here was my situation.

I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.

Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.

This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.

Wont spin or read disk


Try cleaning the laser arm.if your console is pretty old like mine I try replacing the laser arm i picked mine up for a fiver on ebay, and it did the job of fixing disk read errors, over time the arm can wear down so the disks arent read properly.

My disk wont spin at all.


it could be that your PS2's laser is fried. the laser is what reads the disk, and it could be fried because it reads so many scratched disks that the laser "burns itself out" so to speak. try looking into a repair for it.

Disks wont spin on new laser


Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.

Disk wont spin


First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
