    My PS2 (slim) has been working for about 4 years. One day I turned it on and it was working just fine. When I was done, i turned it offm, came back a little later and turned it on but the cd won't spin. It will bring me to browser and system configuration screen, but the cd doesn't move. I have tried different discs but nothing works. I have tried spinning the spinner without the CD on and it isn't stuck. Please HELP!!!!!

Well i dont recommend but use some laser protective eye wear or just use a reflector while pressing the CD tray lock switch is pressed, if there is no light on the laser lense then there is a problem with the lens get it replaced!

Try this, it was the problem on ours. It wouldn't spin the disc or anything, when I went into browser it would say "No Data" I went to system configuration, then to digital out (optical) & it was set to "ON" I changed it to off, put in the game & it started right up. Not sure how mine got switched to ON, but I searched all over the internet & never found that mentioned as a possible cause. I just wish I would've figured it out B4 we went & bought a ps3 & traded in all our ps2 games since the 40gb ps3 won't play them. Hope your problem is as simple as this!

I have an 1991 ami rowe juke box -laserstar cd-100b with error 05-62-how can I fix it??? I own operator and service manuals.

I operate rowe cd 100 jukeboxes for a living, In the manual it will tell you what these error codes are, off the top of my head I know that one to mean either there is a problem with the inner or outter cam switch. these switches are located under what we call the transfer motor, there will be two of them look in your manual to see whether the error relates to the inner or outter cam switch. Inner being the one closest to the actual mechanism and outter being the one furthest from the mechanism. The switches are usually black but can be white and are about the size of an block ink/pencil eraser. You most likely can get the switch from a local electronics store I.E. radio shack.

On my xbox 360 when i have put my fifa 09 it say reading for a while then it says play dvd or clean your disc with a clothe and it really annoying me ?? jack

this is your laser thats losing power and needs either cleaning or the power adjusting so that its optimum again.

dont clean with the common disk cleaners as they are very abrasive and can actually damage the 360 laser eye.

instead strip down the console, then strip down the dvd drive and clean the laser eye with a cotton earbud with a little spit on the end of it. wipe the laser eye with a very gentle clockwise motion.

put everything back together and test if it works then you have done it. if it still does the same then you need to adjust the laser to make the power stronger so it will start reading again.

email me if you need help adjusting the pots on the laser.

ps: this can also happen if the disc is damaged or has the rings around it.

How to clean inside of screen?

Your tv has two screens on it. The outter screen and the inner screen. The outter screen has a frame around it held on by clips. You can remove this outter screen by gently prying it from the tv. There is a small gape between the outter screen and the tv casing. When prying the outter screen be carefull not to dsanage the tv case or the outter screen frame. Take note of the location of each clips because you will need thses to put the outter screen back on. Clean with a good gentle screen cleaner, (Do Not Use Windex). Philips screen cleaning gel for plasma & LCD works very good. Install the outter screen back on the tv by making sure the clips line up and use light pressure to snap it back in place. Do Not Hit Outter Screen To Force Clips Into Place.. I do this on my tv about once every 6 months or so.

Disk wont spin

are you a cute blond? i give you alot of credit, but your going about it wrong. need to know if there is red/blue coming out of the laser. the laser focusing (moving up and down)
3.the spindle height has to be at the correct height for the laser to read the disk (thus spinning it) and the spindle also had had problems with this unit. (you can clean it up )
4. once it spins the disk it has to read the TOC (table of contents)which means it has to move to the inner most part of the cd
5 send me you name address and if your busy friday! lol
