    I have similar problem , says no data on the disc but it reads ps1 games so the suggestion of a new laser is clearly not a solution required.

    after putting in the disk, it just clicks over and over and never spins. At times it works just fine and at others it will start spinning the it makes a growling noise like its skipping and slightly scraches my disks.

I have a playstation 2 slim here. It wont spin the

Is that the only disc you seem to be having the problem with?? If so try getting the disc repair kit and using that. I had the same problem with mine but it was only some of the discs. The ps2 slim can be very sensitive and even the slightest defect in a disc will cause it not to recognize there is even a disc there.

PS2 Slim Disc Wont Spin

Sounds like the laser has gone out. The unit will not try to spin unless the laser can see the disc. A new laser can be picked up on ebay for less than $10

Ps2 slim will not spin disk i have cleaned everything inside everything seems to be working normally yet the disk wont spin

If you have removed the cover and cleaned the glass laser eye lens unit, then the laser lens motor is faulty.

Hi Jannette,


It sounds like you have a PS2 slim.  Get you  a couple of Q-tips, and bottle of Windex.  You will hear some people tell you to use Rubbbing alcohol, it is not good to do that since the Slim PS2 lens is not glass.  Dampen (not soaked or dripping wet)one tip of the Q-tip and place it on the lens of the laser.  Spin the Q-tip between your fingertips to polish the lens.  Once you swab the entire lens( all crevices and surface), Use the dry tip of the Q-tip to dry the lens. Inspect the lens to see if you left any lint. Try out a disc and see of your No data goes away.

If you do not have any luck, your lens is probably melted from working so hard and long to read a dirty or scratched disc. If your comfortable and electronically talented, you will need to replace the laser.  Yopu can get replacement lasers on Ebay.

If your not Comfortable with replacing your own laser, My service the Playstation Clnic, is one of the most reasonably priced services in the world. I will replace your laser for $39.95 and that includes return shipping and a 90 day warranty.  Check out

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.
