Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

My PS2 has stopped working!!!

My PS2 has stopped working!! My sister was playing a game on my PS2, I walked in the room to see if it was going good, and noticed the game was still on the same loading page. I reset the system, but it just took me to the menu you get when there is no disk. I have tried several games, it seems like the spinner isn't even spinning. Can someone please help!?

Spindle motor went bad it sounds like. Open up the ps2 and inside of there, you'll see a ribbon for the drive, take it off of the board and then reseat it.

Now put the top back on and try the drive again. If it still doesn't spin then the drive will need to be replaced.

I have a play station 2 and I like to play Crash Bandicoot 2.Gortex strikes back,but the memory card won't work is this because it is a play station 2 memory card. thank you John.


First, check to see if your memory card has any room on it by turning on your PS2 while there is no game in the machine. Select your memory card, and see how many blocks are left on it, then see how many blocks are required to save Crash Bandicoot 2 games (should tell you on the game's box).

If there isn't enough room, delete some saves to make room.

If there is room, or you cannot view the saved data on your memory card then try putting it in the other slot. If putting it in the other slot does not fix the problem then your card is either damaged or the data is corrupted. In either case, you will simply need to use a different memory card.

PS2 was dropped, now disc won't spin and can't be read.


I just looked at a friend's PS2. Same story, tripped over cord, unit fell to floor. Unit powers up and sys. config. screen comes on but the drive didn't seem to be spinning up. Opened the case and found that the shaft of the drive motor for the laser tray had popped out of it's centering retainer ( little black bushing/holder). With the top off the unit, looking at the unit from the front, on the right side in the rear corner you'll see the motor. The worm shaft (bronze colored rod) runs towards the front of the unit. Where it ends it should sit centered in a black plastic holder, if it's off to the side a little pressure will pop it back in. Put the cover back on, and power it up, you should hear the drive spinning up. If it does you should be set. Hope this helps.

You're stuck not being able to play, you need to get the slim PS2's because they reconverted the discs for a new disc encoding.
