    Cleaned unit, found spindle is slightly bent. This means disc is not level and doesn't read. Any fix for that?

  • Morden86 Jul 16, 2008

    I have a PS2 Slim, It will read Ps1 Games, and Music Disk's and burned mp3 disks, But it will not read movies or Ps2 games. Goes straight to Browser. I actually have 2 ps2 slims with the exact same problem.
    Any Suggestions

Hi Wort,

I have been repairing PS2's for 4 yrs now.  I can take a look at it if you send it to me.  If I can not repair, I will send it back at my cost.  If I can, it would be $20 Plus parts

Not sure if you still need help

Thanks

Goes to system configuration browser


It means it does not read the discs anymore.
It could be he laser unit is defective or may be dirty

For the slim version you could clean the lens with a que tip and some alcohol. the fat version requires you to open it.
Alternatively there are cleaning cd's which will do this job for you.

If cleaning does not help the laser needs to be replaced

Ps2 slim will not spin disk i have cleaned everything inside everything seems to be working normally yet the disk wont spin


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

My playstation wont read any of my gaming disks i


Hi there,
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards

Dispaly cannot read disk


DONT FORGET TO RATE SOLUTION

1. CLEAN THE LASER. ALWAYS DO THIS FIRST. MOST TIMES THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO GET YOUR SYSTEM BACK RUNNING A 100% AGAIN

2. IF THE LASER CLEANING DON'T WORK ON YOUR PS2 SYSTEM PERFORMANCE THEN TRY ADJUSTING THE LASER VOTAGE.

3. IF THE LASER VOTAGE DON'T WORK YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE LASER

Disc read error


Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.

Disk wont spin


are you a cute blond? i give you alot of credit, but your going about it wrong.
1.you need to know if there is red/blue coming out of the laser.
2.is the laser focusing (moving up and down)
3.the spindle height has to be at the correct height for the laser to read the disk (thus spinning it) and the spindle also had had problems with this unit. (you can clean it up )
4. once it spins the disk it has to read the TOC (table of contents)which means it has to move to the inner most part of the cd
5 send me you name address and if your busy friday! lol

Disc won't spin... laser doesn't come on...


ok...well all of you people are just **** him! the actual problem is that you probably dropped the ps2 and the case lid got a bit lose...... what you have to do (if you dont want to buy a whole ps2 case again) is tap the ps2 on the top of the lid when it goes into the cd browser screen and it will work perfectly fine just make sure you dont tap i too hard or else we will have another problem...lol!

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.
