Re: the disk won't spin
Right then, there are several things that can cause this type of problem, but ultimately, the issue here is that by the sounds of things, the DC motor that is designed to turn the disk spindle, is not operating. The cause of this can vary from a simple lid sensor (the sensor that activates the disk motor when the disk cover lid is closed) or even a failed spindle motor.
I think the best cause of action here is to log onto googles' server and search for the service/ repair manual for this product and go from there. If components are then discovered to have a fault, then you will certainly need a multimeter and tools, and of course, you will need to know how to use them.
You can get a whole bunch of information off the internet on how to use the tools andservice data. For now though, your best link is www.kpsec.freeuk.com/
I hope that this info proves to be somewhat useful, and if you have additional questions then please do contact me and i will provide additional assistance for you on this problem, but in the meantime, take care

Sometimes the brushless motor driver circuit fails. Rarely does the motor itself go bad. On some models, if the the laser diode is too weak to read the disc, the player will not bother to spin it. It won't spin so a lens cleaner disc won't work You can try to take it apart and clean the tiny lens. Don't use alcohol. Windex and a Q-tip works great to remove grease and dirt. Don't buff it hard. Just wipe lightly a few times and look at it at an angle to make sure it is shiny, not hazy. Almost all of these are not an economically viable repair. If cleaning the lens does not help, you are looking at another portable player.
Not sure bout that ,,usally when it spins a few times and thats it,,motor wore out,,,put a disc in try as it stops spinning or right wen its fixon to start spinning given it a help spin,,i had that fix or getem goin,,,,also try tapping it ,,and hitting the side od the machine,,good luck,,
Cleaning the lens from the inside is not possible from a practical point of view. However, if you don't care that your camera won't work after you've taken it apart but you just want to see what's inside, then go ahead. If you see dust inside the lens and this is what is concerning you, please know that all lenses have dust inside...it can't be totally eliminated. In 99.999% of cases, the dust doesn't show up on the actual pictures.
The most likely situation you have here is that the cd drive lens isn't reading, just because with a gamecube, it relies on that lens to detect if there is a disc inserted. Your best bet is to try and clean the lens with a que tip and some rubbing alcohol. Be gentle, only very gentle wipes back and forth in a circular motion, then dry it the same way. If that doesn't work, I can give you some tips on how to rip the thing apart and see if it is a connection inside somewhere

It's not enough to use a disk to clean the laser lens. You have to take the PS2 apart and clean the lens manually. Nicotine, Incense, diffusers, and other smokes and just time itself clouds the lens. Not only that but the part that the disk sits and spins on needs to be cleaned over time as well to assure the disk is in proper alignment and Is not just kinda spinning on the spindle.
In that link i posted above you be led to directions on how to take apart your PS2 and what parts to clean. The instructions I have posted in that tutorial is for the (FAT) PS2 model not SLIMLINE. If you have a slimline model you don't have to take apart anything just open your cover and clean the parts in the video.
The motor that spins the disk rests on rubber shocks. The rear shocks wear out over time allowing the disk to set uneven and rub eventually stopping the disk and giving a disk error. To fix simply put one small flat washer under each of the rear shocks this will level the motor and stop it from rubbing.
