    PS2 boots and then sets at the Browser & System Configuration Page. Cannot get it to recognise that a disk is in the game. Did not get disk error.

My disc reader motor wont spin. it refuses to read the disc

Hi,the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DONT use regular rubbing alcohol.
Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses.
Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone.
This method clears read problems most of the time.

when a disk reader refuses to spin, sometimes it might be from the motor mechanism that allows it to spin when you insert a disk inside the disk reader is damaged that's might be the reason it does not spin.

You can check both the lens and the mechanism to be such which needs to be replaced.

Take care.

My girlfriend beat the **** out of my ps2 slim rite ove the disk area an now disk wont spin and laser wont move

Obviously, the unit has been damaged. The disc motor and laser are damaged. Those parts are expensive and there's no telling what else may be damage. I suggest just buying a new unit

Xbox 360 wont read the disks.

If the system has never been opened then 95% of the time the laser lens has when out, the other 5% would be a bad motor that eather spins the disc or moves the laser carriage . I repair these all the time.

Ps3 disk wont spin got it apart I fixed once when it wouldnt take in discs and now it stopped spinning

Sounds like the blu-ray drive is failing. Have seen it happen way too many times. You are going to want to call Sony for free replacement:

Disk wont spin

are you a cute blond? i give you alot of credit, but your going about it wrong. need to know if there is red/blue coming out of the laser. 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

Ps2 slim line

if the laser is moved to the middle of the area and when you first turn it on it doesn't go back to starting possession's then some thing is wrong with the motor drive more than not it's likely you have a crack in the board.

Sony2 slimline model scph-70002

Hi gollywog,

The laser not moving sounds like the connection from the motor that moves the laser to the motherboard has become dsiconected. You can usually get movement of the laser, and the only reason is something is wrong with the motor or its connection to the motherboard.
