If this is the slim console and you have a dashboard or main menu display, try putting a little bit of pressure on the corner of the lid near the power/reset button

ussually some slimline ps2 has an easily worn out small button near the power/reset button and another one on the upper left, if your dad has opened up the console ask him to put a masking tape on thos ebutton and try playing the game

let us know if this helped you

Ps2 not working /green light on disc not spining

i had a issue with my ps2 discs not spinnig but its was actually the laser which was dirty, i opened mine [ very annoying and hard as sum cord and come off easily and you have to have sum knowlegde as to how to put back together if wires start cominh off, of course if you have a slim try seeing if the laser lens is dirty , if so gently clean the lens with a soft cloth as to not make any marks on the lens, if its the motor well hey it could be replaced but ive never looked inside one yet

so if you have a phat ps2 then start removein the screws located on the bottom of the ps2, you can find instructions on google for correct disassembly, then when you have taken the top off and moved upside down towards the side of the dvd drive as the cord isnt that long and it should rest well, the the cover on the dvd needs to be removed and then you can see the lens, i simply toke my finger and cleaned it but this ps2 had a lot of dirt as it was thrown awaying by the prior owner, then reassembled and checked and mine worked, hope this is helpful a video i found

My ps2 will not spin the disk

sounds like the motor is bad on it, your best bet would be to replace the drive cause you don't know what other kind of damage may have happened to the drive.The lasers I know you can get seperately but not the motor.

PS2 goes strait to "configuration" and the disc not spining.

Your lens or motor are dead. However, I am thinking that it is the motor. If it is on warranty, call Sony. They should fix it. If not, take it apart, and plug a 3v current into the drive. + = red, - = black. If it is dead, get a replacement from a website like eBay.

Ps2 damage

It looks like you damaged your PS2 firmware, if this is the case you will need to have it reflashed at a sony repair centre.
Check if connectors to video and cold solder joint to video output are ok, test capacitors and resistors for continuity, using a multimeter, see if you find some cap that has blown, that will be luck.
If you do not find anything, it means that you have damaged some of the ICs, probably by touching the board with bare hands and causing electrostatic discharge on IC contacts.
This can be fixed only at a Sone repair centre.
Ask to retailer or call the number listed on the PS user manual, if you are lucky you can purchase an extended guaranty for $80 and have it fixed for free for the next two years, or if the PS is less than one year old you can use your current factory guaranty.
Call Sony and ask.

PS2 wont spin games

if it reads the silver ones it should read the other i would have said change the laser but as you have done this i could be that it has over heated and their is no way of curring this have you tried playing the blue ones on another ps2 if this is not the problem then their is nothing you can do other than sell yours for spares or buy a broken one you can get them off ebay cheap as you no your laser works usually the one people sell that dont work is the laser so you could put the laser into the one you buy then you should have no probs sorry this isnt nothing else you can do

Disc not spinning

Hello, please check the model of the optical unit and purchase the new (original) one. Then you can change the optical taking care that mechanical alignment should stay the same as before replacement. Hope that this will solve your problem. Best regards, Arpi
