The disc wont read or spin


You must disassemble your ps2 (if you know how, otherwise look it up on youtube) and make sure the laser itself works in the first place. If it doesn't you may need to replace the disc drive which can be a real pain in the ***. Just be glad it's not an xbox i guess XD (i own xbox -_- ****...)

The disc spins but doesn't show anything. It goes straight to the browser and system configuration screen. It acts like there's no disc in it.

Playstation 2 slim will not read discs. disc inserted and door closed still nothing happens. no laser movement, nothing.


There are THREE reasons that a Slim PS2 will not read discs. I willstart from most common and end at the least common (almost rare)problem.

1. A bad laser. Lasers labor on Playstation 2 [and all other videogame] consoles. They eventually fail, especially if you use your PS2as a DVD player. You can find Slim PS2 lasers at the followingwebsite. They are pretty simple to replace:

2. There are two "lid closed" sensors on the Slim Playstation 2. Theylet the PS2 know that the lid is shut and it should scan for a disc. Sometimes one or both of these sensors can become broken. It doesn'treally happen by itself... usually if someone drops the console, one orboth of the sensors can break or become dislodged.

3. A Bad Motherboard: This is rare. We mostly see this if someoneinstalled a mod chip into the system and it eventually fails.

Click into the following website for Do It Yourself troubleshooting todetermine why your PS2's discs aren't spinning, and how to fix it.

Disc spinning problem


This could be hardware related... the disk drive just might be failing you.

If the drive isn't spinning any of the discs then that is a drive problem and you would need to replace the drive

My playstation 2 disk tray wont spin


the thing is, there can be 2 things.
  • The motor that spins the discs has gone bad. you cant do anything then, just pay the local dealer 20$, he'll fix it for ya
  • Or, your Disc tray is not closed properly. For solving this, try to keep somehitng heavy upon the disc tray, and then try.
  • Please give ratings promtly :)

Disc does not spin


There is 2 switch, first is front switch (part of the lid you open to put discs in - disc tray) was broken. There is also one on the rear of the lid - without these contacting the switches - it will not power up laser or spin discs. check this..
