Hi,the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DONT use regular rubbing alcohol.
Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses.
Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone.
This method clears read problems most of the time.

when a disk reader refuses to spin, sometimes it might be from the motor mechanism that allows it to spin when you insert a disk inside the disk reader is damaged that's might be the reason it does not spin.

You can check both the lens and the mechanism to be such which needs to be replaced.

Take care.

If its not a power problem, notice that the servo motor is spinning or trying to spin with a disc in the tray.
-listen carefully for a high pitch or whinning sound of the motor.
-do you have a reading on the screen? No disc or reading disc?

One of the above can be:
1- a defective laser (it wont illuminate)
2- a broken flat cable to the laser (you wont hear clicking sound when reading)
3- a bad servo motor that can not reach its speed to read the disc (has to spin at a very high speed)

Hope you can solve the problem, succes

The motor will have to be replaced. You can search online or order one from the manufacturer. It will have to be soldered in. Or you may be able to order the entire circuit,laser,and motor for $10

Psp wont read the disc unless you hold the door shut w/o ...


If you dropped it, then the reader may be a little messed up. If the case around the disc is popped open a little bit, closing it all the way might stop the disc from spinning, resulting in not reading the disc. The only thing I recommend is to contact Customer Support on the Playstation website. They might be able to help you fix the problem or have you send it in. www.playstation.com

If a disc will not spin, A- the laser may not be focusing on the disc, as it must do this before it will spin and read the TOC. ( table of contents) B- you could have a fault in the spindle motor circuit or the motor could be bad. You will need to find an authorized servicer if you do not understand solid state repairs. Good Luck PS please dont forget to rate this.
