I had the same problem and that is when I found out why it was important to clean the system.

Get a can of dust remover and thoroughly blow out the system.
MAKE SURE NOT TO SHAKE THE CAN OR TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN THIS WILL CAUSE FREEZING LIQUID TO BLOW OVER THE SYSTEM POSSIBLY CAUSING DAMAGE!!!
You will also need a laser lens cleaning kit, both of these items can be purchase @ Wal Mart, Kmart or Target for about $25.00

Older version PS2 not spinning the disc


I solved this by taking off the screws on the cover that allows the disc to spin. Mine had the same problem.

My disc wont spin. It has all of a sudden just stopped. When I turn it on all the lights come on but the disc just wont spin.


The laser has to detect a game before it will spin the disc so you probbably need a new laser lense.

PS2 Slim Disc Wont Spin


Sounds like the laser has gone out. The unit will not try to spin unless the laser can see the disc. A new laser can be picked up on ebay for less than $10

Disc wont spin in our play station 2 and lid is closed all the way


Their could be two things:
1. No Spin At All:

If your spindle hub is NOT SPINNING AT ALL,
NOT EVEN 1/2 OF A TURN, it may be bad or unplugged.
A tell tale sign of it being unplugged is if you hit
eject, the laser moves down the rail, and starts
grinding because the PS2 keeps trying to move it
down the rail even though it hit the end. There's a
small switch on the spindle hub that tells the unit
to stop pushing the laser because it's reached the
end. Spindle hubs usually do not go bad by themselves,
usually either the PS2 too a bad fall and it became
bent [try spinning it by hand], or someone the cable
out and put it in too many times [or incorrectly] and
the silver contacts on the cable were detached.


2. 1/2 spin:

1. A dirty laser. Try cleaning the laser and see if it helps.
If you can see crust or dust covering the laser eye, it may
not be strong enough to read anything at all. If the laser
looks clean, this is probably not the issue.


2. An unplugged laser cable. These things normally do not come
out by themselves, but if you opened the ps2 that was spinning
OK to clean the laser and/or removed the laser to clean it,
plugged it in, now it's spinning 1/2 of a turn, the laser cable
may not be in securely. If it is in securely, make sure it is
plugged into the motherboard end properly.

3. A dead laser. On models 30001, 35001, and some 30001R, this
is the most likely issue. These models are old and the original
lasers were a bit unreliable.

The disk isn't spinning. When tray closes, it tries to spin for a moment, but then it doesn'tt.


When you first put a CD/DVD into the Playstation 2, the disc spins enough so that the laser can read if it's a CD, DVD movie, DVD ps2 game or CD ps1 or 2 game to spin at the appropriate speed. If there is no disc inside, or the laser thinks there is no disc inside, the disc will only spin that 1/2 of a turn. So what would cause the laser to think there is no disc inside?

A dirty laser. Try cleaning the laser and see if it helps. If you can see crust or dust covering the laser eye, it may not be strong enough to read anything at all. If the laser looks clean, this is probably not the issue.

A dead laser. On models 30001, 35001, and some 30001R, this is the most likely issue. These models are old and the original lasers were a bit unreliable. I would suggest using a 400C since it is a better laser [and more available] than the 400B. YES, despite anything you have read, you CAN replace a 400B with a 400C IN ALL CASES.

Ongoing Playstation2 Slimline issue


Hi...
The laser wont go on unless the disc is IN and the cover is closed.
There is a disc brake post coming down from the LID . If it's broken , the disc wont spin/read.
The post is on the back right of the LID it (normally) goes thru a cutout that moves the brake out of the way.
Other troubles are debris on the worm gear that drives the laser assembly back n forth.
If the post is broken drill out the old one and put some kind of plastic or wooden stick about 1/4 inch long in it's place

Please help im in need and board


Hi, the discs will spin ??? The bubble in top right corner don't stop spinning ???
If you answered NOT the first and YES the second question ...... Then you probably have a defective laser lens like my 40 GB purchased in 2008-Nov.
You have 2 choices: 1- Send it for repair (With warranty) 2- Fix it your self.
It's no complicated, I did it. Just buy a laser replacement and do it. Look for videos in Youtube.com and will see that it's so easy.

Disc wont spin


I searched the net for this, and the conclusion is that whatever it is Lens or Motor (90% chances that it is the lens) you have to get it replaced by a professional...I'm afraid there's no quick fix for this !
