Well, there is 2 switch. one at the back left of the cd tray and one one the reset /power switch.
both sitch have to be close in order for the disk to spin.
If you try this dont forget to put a disk on the spindle as you will start the laser. this is for your safety.
then, if the disk does not spin, then you can try replacing the laser. or at least verify the ribbon cable that is hook to it. if the ribbon cable is not well inside the plug the laser might move but again the disk won t spin.
it is related to each other, the PS2 seem to verify the laser prior to start the spindle so what ever happend to the laser affect the spindle.
and then, if you buy a new laser lens, don't forget to remove the soldering bridge. it is a small ball that is use to avoid static while shiping the lens.
most of the seller will include a small peace of paper with procedure and also there is web site with picture of this soldering bridge.
I replace some of them, and I have to say that the small plastic lock for the ribbon cable to the lens has been an issue and the soldering bridge another one.
but I got most of the PS2 back and running by replacing the laser.
I hope this will help you.
Have you replaced the laser yourself? before installing it you should remove a soldered joint on the laser, it is just like two points soldered together, just desolder that and put it back, it will work. Good luck
I had the very same problem with my ps2. What I had found was that I had indeed gotten a nonfunctioning laser. After I installed another new laser, the system functions without any problem. I hope this information helps you.
Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.
Don't bother changing the lens. If i understand you correctly you have damaged the motor or some circuitry leading to it.
I hope this helps! good luck on finding a new one, they are abundant right now!
