MY PS2 SLIM DOESN'T spin

Ok the problem with my slim is when I turn it on the disc doesn't spin and the lens doesn't light up or move but it boots fine because I can see on my tv screen: browser / system configuration.

I would be so glad if you can tell me what's going on, I wanna know whether I have to change the laser or if it is another thing?
I'll be waiting for your answer THANKS IN ADVANCEd!!

    Mine does the same thing, I think know the problem, I just don't know what to do about it. I have a feeling that the problem is that when you close the disc door, the system thinks it is still open. If you want to you may try tapping the door a little and sometimes it decides to work but after 3 months of doing that, mine gave up on me...

The disc on my slim ps2 rubs against something on slim ps2. It leaves a big ring around the disc


The disc is most likely rubbing on the laser lens. The lens is held on rails which is held up by rubber boots that may have came loose and/or popped up forcing the laser lens to close to the disc. Make sure disc tray is aligned properly as well.

How to fix a slim ps2 when the disc wont spin it turns on and just goes straight to the browser menu its the slim version ceramic white one i tried going into it and connecting the ribbons inside and still...


Have you tried cleaning the lens? using a DVD disc cleaner or a cotton bud and some methylated spirits.
If that doesnt fix it the lens is knackered, common fault on PS2 consoles.

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


Sounds like a motor issue, not a laser issue.

PS2 slim Power Problem - Light is red goes green but nothing else.


Hi Leostg,

 

I have seen this a couple of times.  Lightning or an overload has burned up the motherboard. Its not a fuse, its a fried Emotion Engine processor.   Best advice on dead motherboard is to probably total it unless you can get a low price motherboard replacement. My cost on a new motherboard for slim is about $55.  If you want it fixed, replace the motherboard.  Really you may be able to get another Slim for $55 or less. If you look on ebay  for another motherboard do not take any chances on used motherboards. Go for a broken slim model that will boot up but want read discs. When you get one that boots up, use its motherboard in your Slim.  This will be your best deal at getting your slim up and running once more.

Please give me a Solved vote. I believe you only get one vote and its locked.   I have put a lot into your solution and hope you will show appreciation by voting solved.

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
