Hi loonyhouse ! It sounds pretty odd. You should take the ps2 apart, and harden any flat cable or cable connection in the ps2. It sounds like a looose connection, or a loose screw creating a short in it ? It's just a physical problem most likely. Take it apart, i'm sure you'll find it.. it NEEDS to be obvious :) Thanks, cheebster.

The system is not reading any games


Hello there,
The reason your system is not reading any game is because the lens is not working, to fix this, follow the steps below;
  1. Unplug the power cable, video cable and controllers and remove any discs from the disc drive
  2. Remove the rubber foot on the left side of the PS3, unscrew the security screw and slide off the top lid.
  3. Unscrew all nine screws under the lid and lift off this section to reveal the inside. Be sure to unplug the cable that connects to this lid before completely removing it.
  4. Remove the gray box. This is the Blu-ray drive. Disconnect the power supply and the cable connecting it to the motherboard
  5. Remove the five screws on the outside of the Blu-ray drive to remove the metal shell.
  6. Remove the next set of screws on the black plastic cover to gain access to the inside of the Blu-ray drive. Disconnect the red and black cable to pull the two plastic halves apart.
  7. Remove the cables and brackets and screws holding the laser in place and slide off the laser module. Be sure to check the model number on the laser to make sure you purchase the right replacement model.
  8. Replace with new laser module, reverse your steps and reassemble the PS3.


Take care

    My son tripped over our friends ps2 and it fell to the floor upside down. The PS2 goes but the drive does not go.Any ideas how to fix this problem" Thanks


    There are quite a few things that can cause a disc read error on the slim PS2. The most frequent is a bad laser, however, here is some useful troubleshooting info:

    1. "Lid Closed Sensors" There are two "lid closed sensors" in the slim PS2. In a fall, it's possible that one or both have become damaged. Remove the top of the PS2 and try depressing both sensors with a game inside. The laser should move up and down at least???

    IF YES, try again with the lid on... if the laser doesn't move when you close the lid, then the top casing of your PS2 cracked in the fall and is no longer depressing the lid closed sensors.

    ==> If the laser moves up and down OK but does not read discs, your laser was damaged in the fall. See below for a website with more troubleshooting info, pictures, and replacement cases and lasers.

    http://store.richspsxparts.com/slpsnospdi1a.html

    IF NO, you have a bad lid closed sensor -- these are not really replaceable easily -- you may be better off replacing the whole PS2 if one or both of these lid closed sensors goes bad.

    If you have removed the cover and cleaned the glass laser eye lens unit, then the laser lens motor is faulty.

    When after powering up and I had press enter, it would say CAN NOT READ DISC.


    There are THREE reasons that a Slim PS2 will not read discs. I will start from most common and end at the least common (almost rare) problem.

    1. A bad laser. Lasers labor on Playstation 2 [and all other video game] consoles. They eventually fail, especially if you use your PS2 as a DVD player. You can find Slim PS2 lasers at the following website. They are pretty simple to replace:

    http://store.richspsxparts.com/v12laser.html

    2. There are two "lid closed" sensors on the Slim Playstation 2. They let the PS2 know that the lid is shut and it should scan for a disc. Sometimes one or both of these sensors can become broken. It doesn't really happen by itself... usually if someone drops the console, one or both of the sensors can break or become dislodged.

    3. A Bad Motherboard: This is rare. We mostly see this if someone installed a mod chip into the system and it eventually fails.

    Laser Wont fire


    I had the very same problem with my ps2. What I had found was that I had indeed gotten a nonfunctioning laser. After I installed another new laser, the system functions without any problem. I hope this information helps you.

    Bose wave radio/cd often cd spins but does not play, sometines will correct if I turn unit off and on. HELP tHANKS


    I've repaired about 10 type Bose AWRC3x (the radio/cd model with lift up lid and top controls). If the cd won't play or skips, try cleaning the lens VERY carefully with a cotton bud with some isopropyl alcohol. Let it dry then try again. This will help in about 1/3 of cases.

    After that, a new laser unit is needed. They cost around 15 pounds,30 dollars, (Type SFP100s with 13 pin connector made by Sanyo). You need to have some electronics experience to take the case to bits to get the laser deck out, change the cd laser and reassemble. Basically, DISCONNECT THE POWER! Remove the 3 screws on top, turn over and carefully prise the front of the base away from the top cover with a table knife or similar. Lift off the top cover - be careful with the lid ribbon! The deck can be disconnected from its ribbon cable and wired connector very carefully. Take the deck to bits and fit the new laser head (take photos if you think it will help). Remember to unsolder the shorting 'blob' of solder which protects the new laser from static till its fitted.

    On the bright side, there is no tracking etc to set up, that's all automatic so usually they work like new with a new laser fitted. I have to say this is the weakest feature on the Bose CD radio, the actual electronics rarely gives trouble.

    Hope this helps Steve O'Donnell

    To test the laser pick-up, push the lid swith down to simulate to unit it is closed. Turn unit on to see if the pick-up goes to the middle, tries to focus and the laser can be seen on the lens. If the laser is not present during this operation, bad pick-up. Replace entire unit due to replacement cost of pick-up vs new unit. If it is 70% cost of part vs the new unit, I would opt for a new one. If you are not familiar with a repair of this nature, please do not try. There are more adjustments than just a new pick-up.
