Do you mean the the disc isnt spinning?
1st off check for a small black plastic post on the underside of the lid. It points down. it's towards the back. If that's not there, the disc brake stays on ie; disc wont spin.

2 Check for debris where the lid comes down into the 2 sensor switches . One near the power/reset switch and one at the left side rear. The switches are tiny and if they get junk in 'em , they wont work

Hi my ps2 slim wont turn disc,laser work up and down,i replaced motor with new one but i still have same problem


Make sure there aren't any problems with any of the ribbon cables. Make sure they're clipped down properly. It sounds like your drive isn't getting any power.

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

Ps2 slim spindle dont spin


If your spindle has stopped spinning, it will most likely be 1 of 2 problems. Either your spindle motor has burnt up, or even though it is very unlike, a lead wire that supplies the power to the spindle has became disconnected. Now, if the case it the burnt up spindle motor, there are hundreds of motors for every kind of PS on, of course, E-Bay. If the problem is for some reason, a soldered wire has broken from the motor. It is very simple to re-attach the lead with a quick touch from a soldering iron. I hope this has helped.

Ps2 drive failure in slim models


My PS2 has been played so long, let those PS2's run for a minute, usually it takes a minute or two kicking on for those, I have one that takes a while to kick on. If that doesn't work then you just can't do anything, sounds like something is just messed up, when I have a spare PS2 i'll drop it and see what happens for you.

PS2 OR PS2 SLIM


ps2 can play dvds but xbox needs a store bought xbox dvd remote to play dvds
the ps2 slim and the ps2 normal have a lot in common so thwere is not much difference, but the slim has a fliptop lid and the fat ps2 has a open and shut slide drive.If I were you I would get the slim because it is the only one you can get brand new nowadays. The xbox may have halo 1 and 2 but sometimes there are freezes on certain xboxes.

Disc doesnt spin , the lens dont move up and down , only lights red


Sounds like a motor issue, not a laser issue.

Many Problems regarding PS2 Slim


Hi NateQ, Sorry about no one paying attention to your problem for so long. I just got started about a month ago. I have been repairing video Game consoles for over a decade though. Your problem is that your slim has a melted down laser and lens assembly. The unit is dirty. You will need a new disc drive and a thorough cleaning to get it back in service. The problem about the power light is due to excessive dust buildup shorting out the components on the motherboard. The video output is also comprimised by dust and dirt. The disc spinning is possibly comprimised by hair wrapped around the disc drive spindle. If you want, I can thoroughly detail clean your PS2 slim and replace the disc drive for $38 plus shipping both ways. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
