Ps2 wont SPIN disks it tries to read and spins for like 1sec PS2 SLIM

If it's having issues reading ANY kind of discs (CD's, DVD's, PS2 games) it might be due to a malfuctioning lense or a disk rotator motor issue.

Since it's agaisnt the PS2 TOS to modify or take apart your PS2 you should contact customer support or tech support with this issue.

If there's that option is not aviable you should try ordering the required parts online from different distribuitors:

My ps2 disc wont spin! aht do i do?

I've had this problem quite a few times; here are some potential issues: (1) If it is any color disk but the standard shiny silver (i.e. purple, blue) it will not play. it will do about one or two spins and be done. (2) When was the last time you cleaned it? Take out the screws. It's been a while for me but I believe they are under the pads for laying them down. Get some canned air (1 = $4 or $5 for a good one), hold it straight up and clean it. PLEASE MAKE SURE IT'S UNPLUGGED BEFORE DOING THIS. (3) 75% of my problem was that I had the PS2 laying down so the disk goes in horizontally. Set it up and try that way if it's not already. (4) Check your disk and if it's really scratched then that could be another problem. *(5) Wall Plug. If you have more than 2 appliances plugged into the wall outlet then you could be depriving the unit the power it needs to operate properly. Consider an extension cord or moving it to another outlet.

Ps2 game won't spin

Try clening it. Tilt the ps2 on it's side so that you can see the disc, then spin the disc manually . Now, turn on the ps2. If it doesn't work, get a new game.

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 !
