PS2 won't spin a disc

My PS2 slim was dropped on the floor, now it won't spin a disc at all.  When I hit enter on the browser, it says "no data".  I have taken it apart, and see nothing that is obviously broken.  Any ideas?  Thank you.

Take it to technician because it happen also to our PS2 and you can do nothing about it but to take it to a technician.

I have a playstation 2 slim here. It wont spin the


Is that the only disc you seem to be having the problem with?? If so try getting the disc repair kit and using that. I had the same problem with mine but it was only some of the discs. The ps2 slim can be very sensitive and even the slightest defect in a disc will cause it not to recognize there is even a disc there.

We have a PS 2 slim silver console and the discs won't spin.


If its still under warranty then send it back to Sony to fix it. If not the problem probably is one of the tabs that trigger the switches might be broken off. the tabs are the plastic protrusions on the lid. if the switches are not hit the ps2 will think the lid is still open and will not spin the disc.

PS2 Slim Disc Wont Spin


Sounds like the laser has gone out. The unit will not try to spin unless the laser can see the disc. A new laser can be picked up on ebay for less than $10

How to fix a slim ps2 when the disc wont spin it turns on and just goes straight to the browser menu its the slim version ceramic white one i tried going into it and connecting the ribbons inside and still...


Have you tried cleaning the lens? using a DVD disc cleaner or a cotton bud and some methylated spirits.
If that doesnt fix it the lens is knackered, common fault on PS2 consoles.

Sony PS2 discs that were previously used with memory card will not read. other games with no memory work fine. Discs are spinning but browser says disc could not be read.


everything you'll need...this is very common on the ps2 is it a slim or the big one...if it is the fat one here try this :)

Disc won't spin. Disc doesn't show up in browser


You got a problem with the lasers data getting back to the Motherboard.
One of these could be your problem

  1. Laser lens is melted. Look at the lens with a magnifying glass to see if it or its supporting frame is melted. REplace the laser in this case.
  2. The ribbon Cable going from the Laser to the motherboard is damaged or loose.
  3. Your laser is burned out. Press the two interlock to override the door being open, to see if the laser even lights up. 2 switches, one at rear left corner, one behind the On/reset switch.
  4. Your Laser is dirty and needs cleaning look at it with a magnifying Glass to make sure you got it clean. Use Q-tip and window glass cleaner, not alcohol.

Disc won't spin,


If your PS2 slim console is chipped for playing fake games then try it by replacing the modification IC otherwise replace the lens with new one and your problem should be solved.
