Attempt to perform the following steps:

  • Try it again - Eject and attempt to reinsert the disc to see if the problem occurs again.

  • Is it freezing? - If so, click here for additional assistance.

  • Any recent update? - If you have previously downloaded an Auto update, you can set your console to automatically load a disc in the DVD tray. Or, you can set your console to start in the main screen.
  • Is it a problem elsewhere? - Try testing the console by using a different disc. Use game discs to test game disc freezes and DVDs to test DVD freezes, or click here for additional assistance.

  • Check environment - Make sure that the console is not near a heat source such as a television, computer, monitor, or other electrical device. Also, make sure that the console is in a well-ventilated area. If the console is in a poor location, move it to a location that has sufficient ventilation, such as on a table or on the floor. If this resolves the issue, the previous location likely did not provide enough ventilation. Review the Playstation instruction manual for information about where to put the console.

  • Are date/time OK? - Make sure that the console is set to the correct time and date. Also, see if the console requires that you reset date and time every time that it is turned on (This issue may prevent the console from recognizing the disc media).

  • Check other devices - Disconnect all the unnecessary peripheral devices, including the Hard Drive, and then test the console.

  • Test with other hardware - If possible, test the disc in a different console. If you do not have another console available (or the problem is limited to one disc), exchange the disc at the retailer where you purchased it.
If the above steps have not resolved the issue, the unit may require service*.

Disk wont spin


The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.

Here was my situation.

I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.

Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.

This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.

Disks wont spin on new laser


Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.

Disk wont spin


First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
