Ps3 not spinning disc, replaced spindle motor, did not fix. Please help


Hi there, this is because the actual laser needs replacing, not the disc spinner motor. With the PS3 the laser reads the disc data type, whether it be a DVD, game , audio cd or blu ray movie. It then spins the disc up to the required read speed. When the laser is faulty is cannot read the disc type so will not spin at all.

Hope this helps

When i put a disc ...the screen goes black and then it says error reading disc please press the eject button and turn the console off. what do i do?


The cause here is the Drive itself is ether dirty or showing signes of intermittency now the folks at www.videogamerepair.com can take this into consideration and have it repaired for you if its under warranty or not give them a try. Otherwise you might need to have nontendo get involved.

Thanks

Open up the DVD drive, clean the laser lens with a Qtip and alcohol, push the laser lens cradle next to the center (spinner) and lastly dust off the insides of the console. This works all the time. I've done this more than 10 times on different consoles.

PS2 stopped spinning.


Laser issue is a commom problem on the ps2.The laser actually is controlling the spinning as well on ps2 machine and on the new ps3 too.
When the disk start, the spinner receive a kick back from the laser and after then that start the normal operation.
If the laser don`t send any impulse to the spinner the machine recognize a danger situation ang go on protection and stop the spinning process.
Replacing your laser will certanly solve your problem.

Listen to your dvd drive to see if it spins up or not when you put the disk in. If it does spin normally then you will be need a replacement laser.

If it does not spin correctly. The motor is stuck, sometimes if you open out the tray and stick something into the drive and give it a spin it will free the drive.

Dvd rom


The laser going bad is a pretty common issue with the drives, since it's a Hitachi that spindle motor could be all gunked up with dirt as well and cause that issue also.
if ya have a Hitachi, if it's a Samsung it could just be the laser.

DVD wont close
I just solved this problem, very simple actually. Possibly can happen when the drive WILL close, but then loud noise as it tries to spin the disc up. Open the drive up (4 little screws on the bottom) and lift the lid up. If you look on the top white magnet spinner, the bottom side of the magnet system broke off of the disc motor. It will look like a little metal ring stuck to the white spinner thing whatever it's called. I popped that off and examined it, then used some krazy glue to stick it back on the motor spindle and it's away and going now. The reason the drive will not close, is because when the little magnet first breaks off it can get misaligned then when it tries to shut it gets in the way. The MAY be the cause to the problem. I fixed this issue today with mine, hitachi drive.
