    I bought a brand new, midnight club 3: dub edition remix and it does not work at all. my other games work but, i still have th same problem; the game only works if it skips browser and just goes straight into the game, it doesn't work when the browser shows up.

    Have you tried different discs? Movies and games? If none of them spin up, then its a problem with your ps2, but if some games come up it could be a different problem...

It could be a dirty laser... I suggest opening up the trayand look inside you can see the laser! Take a q tip and clean lens or rubbing alch and gently swab the laser lens.. I HAVE DONE THIS 100 TIMES. then see if it works.. My newer games wouldent work but my old games would due to the different media the laser couldent read! Try it and let me know!

I have a playstation 2 slim here. It wont spin the


Is that the only disc you seem to be having the problem with?? If so try getting the disc repair kit and using that. I had the same problem with mine but it was only some of the discs. The ps2 slim can be very sensitive and even the slightest defect in a disc will cause it not to recognize there is even a disc there.

The disc spins but doesn't show anything. It goes straight to the browser and system configuration screen. It acts like there's no disc in it.

2) the switch located on the inside front of the disk holder is not pressed down when closed

Disk won't spin


My sons playstation 2 went to browser and after reading the only one solution of putting a cup on top of it, we did try that but we found that the problem was the silver piece had moved, so after we moved the silver piece toward the middle toward where the disk goes, then closed it, and put a little pressure on top and you could feel it turning , then we opened it back up, the silver part had moved back again, but the playstation started back working then without any pressure.. so my suggestion is move the silver part close to where the disk goes.and it will move itself back....It sure worked for us..I was beginning to think money down the drain for this playstation 2....thank God it worked so maybe it will work for you...
