You should buy one of those laser disks to clean the laser and inside of the ps2 so it will work again cause mine had same problem and i used that and after it worked

I have the same problem and I've tried everything.
I reolaced the laser kit with motor, the laser connector and it still doesn't spin.
I tested the fuses on the motherboard and it seems that the PS13 fuse is shut.
I'll try bybassing it and come back to tell you the results....

I had this problem. I solved it, it works now for most of the disks.

1. Put the disk in the PS2
2. Press hard in the center of the the disk with the index finger
3. Run the index finger around the center of the disk so that it tightly selttles down - do this till you hear a click sound,

Now play it.

Hey i have been doing some research and i think that the problem is that ur guys laser is dead or dying because im haveing the same problem with mine and the disc aent moving and the laser sure aent moving either so i think that u need a new laser or a new consle. Just by all my reserch ive found all of this out so dont think im right i was just suggesting. See ya

I have the same problem. It'll spin up barely for about half a second, then stop. It doesn't give the normal "disc read error" message, it just doesn't do anything at all on the boot menu screen. The next step (if I can't figure out the problem) will be to just buy a new motor. :(

Games so stcrath up

Do you think there is a problem with the games or the ps2, if the ps2 is playing some of your games then the best bet is its the discs of those that won't work are the discs scrachted? this is the most common problem for games not working as the disc is so srachted that the ps2 can not read it, they could be smudged if so just get a soft cloth not a t-towle or kitched roll as these have very rough surfaces and may scracht the discs even more, another thing is that the laser that reads the disc has dust on it, if so you will need to buy a disc cleaner try to find one with a liquid solution that comes with it as these are the best i have one and i use it each month so that my ps2 never has dust and so far it has worked perfectly hope i could help.

Disk wont spin

Your, dvd playing in your ps2, may be malfunctioning, your best bet is buying a ps2 dvd player, taking the old one out, and putting the new one in, and I guarantee that that will help you continue on your massive killing rampage on vice city.

PS2 Disk won't spin

what may have happened is that the saved files for GT4 on your memory card have now become corrupt, and the disk when put in the suysstem is trying to read the data from the card, simply deleting your saved GT4 data from the memory card should allow the disk to play as normal.
