Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

2 Answers

Faulty PS2 v12

Ps2 works fine except for spindle motor not working.The laser beam on the laser unit is not visible, but the laser head tracks up and down and the laser moves back and forth. I have checked the resistors where the diode fix is placed, they all test fine. I traced the tracks from the spindle motor to the rs2004f and they are all intact. Please help

Best Solution: Purchase a cronit wire (the blue type, not green) from RadioShack for about $3. Unplug the unit & remove the back cover. At the lower left side - locate the Parker-laser mechanism. Splice one end of the cronit wire and attach it to the source then connect it to the center module (if no port is available - piggy back it onto another blue cronit wire) you'll see.

Hello shaundiane, first of all try by replacing the optical block unit. If the problem persists, continue with replacing the RS2004FS driver IC. Best regards, Arpi

DVD camcorder ntsc dc10 im getting disc error when the disc stops spinning


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD. If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor. Also in some cases the central motor base can shift and so the distance to the disc can be more resulting in low detection. You can pull up the spindle to come closer.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.

If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

My bose lifestyle 48 system suddenly stopped playing new DVDs...is there a problem with the head..I bought it only in 2008


is the discs just spinning and then stopping when you put them in the drive?
there may be a chance that the lens might just needs cleaned. suggest a dvd lens cleaner but on the down side there is a strong possibility it may be a faulty lens. dvd players aren't built to last.
always clean the dvd player from dust and keep in an open space.

Won't work. disk won't turn


sounds like a faulty spindle. this is the part that spins your cd for the laser to read. if your using a fat ps2 its prolly the spindle. if your using a slim ps2 it could be the laser causing the problem not the spindle. the slim ps2 laser make the spindle work. if the laser isnt working right the cd might not spin or it might not spin fast enough or flat enough.

PS2 Disc does not spin


just because you see read doesn't mean the laser is good.
the laser has to read the toc (table of contents) for it to read the toc it must be at the beginning, it must be at the right depth from lens to cd and the spindle must spin. now if you have to spin the spindle that means it most like is not reaching the beginning of the cd or the spindle motor is bad.

Ps2 slim


did you try putting the laser reader in your origional lazers place? you might have forgotten a connection, but other than that, im not shure why that would happen unless you broke the connector, or the connector somehow comes undone after you close the ps2 back up. also, have you tried it when you have a cd in it with the safety mechanisms overrided? it should rest in the full out position when you turn it off while a cd is playing in the last track. and just to clarify, is the spindle the linear actuator that moves the lazer head or the thing that turns the cd?

Disc reading sound ps2 slim


Check around where the laser connects to the worm gear that moves it up and down. You may have some lint wrapped around the worm gear. Also check the disc spindle motor for Lint trapped under it. It could be your laser lens getting dirty.
Clean the Slims lens with a Q-tip and Window Glass Cleaner.
  1. Lightly Dampen one of the tips of the Q-tip with Glass Cleaner
  2. Swab the laser lens with the dampened Q-tip.
  3. Clean and dry of the laser lens with the dry tip of the Q-tip
Good luck
