The disk is not spinning and the band is fine

Have you checked to see if the turn for the laser is working? It won't read if the laser doesn't move. Check to make sure the teeth are good on the laser wheel and double check that it is the right position, if when you changed the belt you may have knocked something else off that is for the laser mover.

PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...

The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

When i put cd games in slim ps2 (90004 cb) it makes a very loud noise (like hiting a door with a coin) and the game won't load. This happens with a few blue games (not all of them) it scares the hell...

Try laying the console flat and upside sounds like the '2-cent' clip on the laser eye is broken, which is allowing the eye to jam...repositioning as stated gives it more clearance to move by taking the tension off. Hope this helps!

My nintendo wii shoots the disc back out

You know, I had the same exact problem, but it didn't shoot it out all the way, only halfway. Anyway, heres how to fix it. First, you get a gamebit screwdriver (can be bought at hardware store). Then, you take the rubber things off and the stickers around the wii. You will see some bolts, take them out. Take off the shell. You will see a metal box kind of thing. There will be more bolts. Take those out, too. Then you will be in the inards of the wii. Handle this with care, if you drop it, your wii is doomed. Now, open the inards. You will see some white things and the disk. Take the disk out. Now grease the white things and try it. It may make a strange buzzing noise but it's better than it being broken. By the way, I am not responsible for your console breaking because I'm 10 years old and I am putting how I remember my dad did it, but he is an engineer, though. He's good with this stuff. So good luck!
