Hello my ps2 dont spin it not the lens can u tell me what worng with it or how to fix it the part that you put the disk on dont spin


The spindle (spin) motors don't usually go out. The most common reason for the game to not spin is the laser. If the laser doesn't see a disc then it will not try to spin it. You can pick up a new laser off of ebay for less than $10

My ps2 slimline doesnt work the spindle


If the laser doesn't see a disc, then it will not try to spin. First try cleaning the laser eye with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. If this doesn't work, then the laser has probably gone out. A new laser can be purchased on ebay for less than $10.00

Ps2 slim spindle dont spin


If your spindle has stopped spinning, it will most likely be 1 of 2 problems. Either your spindle motor has burnt up, or even though it is very unlike, a lead wire that supplies the power to the spindle has became disconnected. Now, if the case it the burnt up spindle motor, there are hundreds of motors for every kind of PS on, of course, E-Bay. If the problem is for some reason, a soldered wire has broken from the motor. It is very simple to re-attach the lead with a quick touch from a soldering iron. I hope this has helped.

PS2 won't read disk sometimes


I've helped someone else with a similar problem here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t1300166-playstation_2_console_keeps_freezing

It's not enough to use a disk to clean the laser lens. You have to take the PS2 apart and clean the lens manually. Nicotine, Incense, diffusers, and other smokes and just time itself clouds the lens. Not only that but the part that the disk sits and spins on needs to be cleaned over time as well to assure the disk is in proper alignment and Is not just kinda spinning on the spindle.

In that link i posted above you be led to directions on how to take apart your PS2 and what parts to clean. The instructions I have posted in that tutorial is for the (FAT) PS2 model not SLIMLINE. If you have a slimline model you don't have to take apart anything just open your cover and clean the parts in the video.

Hope that helps,

Won't work. disk won't turn


sounds like a faulty spindle. this is the part that spins your cd for the laser to read. if your using a fat ps2 its prolly the spindle. if your using a slim ps2 it could be the laser causing the problem not the spindle. the slim ps2 laser make the spindle work. if the laser isnt working right the cd might not spin or it might not spin fast enough or flat enough.

Please.. help me... my ps2 slimine is comepletely ruined..


Since you "smashed" which made things much worse (been there, done that). It was probrably fixable but now that it scratches I can only assume that the lens (laser) is scratched and damaged "beyond repair". The only suggestion I have, if you really want to fix it is to replace the lens and probrably the disc tray too. Fot the trouble it's worth too fix and the fact that there is no guarantee that it will even work after you fix it, your best bet is too buy a new one or at least a refurbished one.

PS2 Disc does not spin


just because you see read doesn't mean the laser is good.
the laser has to read the toc (table of contents) for it to read the toc it must be at the beginning, it must be at the right depth from lens to cd and the spindle must spin. now if you have to spin the spindle that means it most like is not reaching the beginning of the cd or the spindle motor is bad.

Faulty PS2 v12


Hello shaundiane, first of all try by replacing the optical block unit. If the problem persists, continue with replacing the RS2004FS driver IC. Best regards, Arpi
