SOURCE: Black screen, no disc spin or eject, fan spins

That same thing happened to me. I disassembled the ps2 to find out the problem, I found out. If your console does not turn on or no lights check the silver ribbin connected to the reset button. See If it is in all the way the top and the bottom of the ribbin or check to see if there are any tares in it if there is replace it . You can get good parts off of Ebay.

Sounds like you later lens has been damaged or is dirty. There is a cleaning kit at Walmart. If that doesn't work, google a local repair shop.

My outside unit fan doesn't spin. i hear a clicking noise and a humming but the fan won't spin. i've tried to spin the fan and it spins freely by hand.


You may need a new start capacitor or fan motor.I would have the capacitor checked by a electrician and changed if needed. Good luck and thank you.

Cant play new guitar hero Metallica.....need help please!


Ok, heres what you do.

(with the ps2 slim, this will work, I'm not sure with the fat but here you are)

Turn it on with the disc in it.
Turn the ps2 horizontly with the front facing you.
Whenever you hear a tick (only for fat) tap it against you knee a few times until you hear it spinning.

I first figured this out when I was frustrated. The ticks should be in groups of two. I just taped it on my knee, then I heard it spinning, and now I know I didn't waste my money on GH metallica and world tour.

GUITART HERO METALLICA


I have a ps2 slim SCPH-79001, so I am not sure if it will work with the fat ps2s but:

Turn the ps2 horizontly with the ps2 front facing you. Then put it in, you should hear a few ticks (with the slim) and just tap it against you knee a few times until you jear it spinning.

Again, I'm not sure if this will work with the fat ps2, but I hope I helped.

FAT PS2 with Flip Top and Swap Magic 3.6 not loading backups


1. when you're burning your dvds, burn at the lowest speed possible, and use high quality media like sony

2. clean your lens

3. if that doesn't work, clean out the whole ps2

i use swap magic on the same model ps2, and occasionally get this message on lower quality media

Sony PS2 discs that were previously used with memory card will not read. other games with no memory work fine. Discs are spinning but browser says disc could not be read.


everything you'll need...this is very common on the ps2 is it a slim or the big one...if it is the fat one here try this :)

PS2 only getting a red light - not powering on


Is the system fat or slim?
If its fat then it is the internal power supply.
a 12$ total fix from parts via ebay takes 10-15 min to take apart and re-assemble. I can help you step by step let me know.

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.
