The disc on my slim ps2 rubs against something on slim ps2. It leaves a big ring around the disc


The disc is most likely rubbing on the laser lens. The lens is held on rails which is held up by rubber boots that may have came loose and/or popped up forcing the laser lens to close to the disc. Make sure disc tray is aligned properly as well.

It wont read anything


I'm going to say that if it wont read any disk your laser has died but lets try to clean the laser before you do anything else. check out the video below it will show you how to clean your ps2. you said you have the slim ps2 if not use the ps2 large videos they will show you step by step how to repair your system.

if you find that cleaning the laser does not work you can get a new laser lens assembly on Ebay cheap about $10.00 with free shipping. then you will want to use the lens replacement video its good for the full size and slim.

I hope I have been helpful please don't forget to rate and good luck if I can be of any more help just let me know.

PS2 Slim won't spin disks


Not necessarily, just make sure that the laser is not locking up and its actually moving if not then that right there might be the problem. If it is moving then you might need a new laser. If its that the laser is not moving do not touch it instead try moving the ps2 and making sure that you don't hear any clanking noise inside.

Disc doesnt spin , the lens dont move up and down , only lights red


Sounds like a motor issue, not a laser issue.

Disk read error on slim ps2 scph 75003


hello pauldonp...if this is an early version of the slimline they had a problem with over voltage which inturn took out the laser.your only option may be to replace the laser . sony did bring out a mod for this..i preferr the real old version of the ps2 as they had all separate boards and if one went faulty you didnot have to replace the lot ,also the lasers were a lot cheaper than the later models .in the slim lines the lasers are not all that expensive .they do take a bit of setting up as you have to know the ohms setting on the laser for each model..hope this helps

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.
