Yeah, i have the same problem with GT4, and i tried taking out the memory card, still clicks and the disk never spins. I even have guitar hero 2 and that works no prob.

Try starting the game without the memory card in if it works then you know it was a memory card problem if not then disregard and buy a new ps2 lol

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.

    try using a cd cleaner that also aligns the laser, as allignment may be the fault, if it's struggling to read data.

Fat and Slim PS2's generally have different playability with disks. a slim, for example, does not want to play old blue-backed disks, though it will easily read PSX black backs. I'll need more information on the disk and the PS2 to give a complete answer.

Rockband freezing ps2

the disk may be damaged , If it has the smallest scratch or smudge on the disk the ps2 will not play it. is it the slim or older ps2 ? if it continues to freeze I would return it as damaged.

PS2 Slim won't spin disks

Not necessarily, just make sure that the laser is not locking up and its actually moving if not then that right there might be the problem. If it is moving then you might need a new laser. If its that the laser is not moving do not touch it instead try moving the ps2 and making sure that you don't hear any clanking noise inside.

PS2 Slim will not play

hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.

PS2 Makes Sounds and Keeps Pausing Games

Hi Ebridges2,


The Game your playing is probably a Blue colored media.  That is ones that spin so fast.  You console has become dusty and loaded with lint probably.  You can open the case and clean up the insides. Also while your in there, remove the ocver and polish up the lasers lens.  This will probably get you back in business. If you do nto have success, contact me at [email protected]   I run The Playstation Clinic at  If you have a Slim Model it will cost more than the big model to repair.  The slim model is $41 full refurbish including return shipping inside the USA.  The big Fat PS2 Versions are $36 including return shipping.


Disk wont spin

First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.

There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
