PS2 Slim disc not spinning NEED help is it the laser or is it something eles ? Answered

I have a ps2 slim modded with modbo 2.1 one a bunch of friends and i played it out for like 8 hours after tht it just seemed that the laser was not readding properly and sent it to someone to clean the lens they did but it did not improve actually over time it got worse and worse so i brought a laser off ebay and it looked all good but when installed the motor does not spin anymore any suggestions on why this is happening


Did you removed solder from laser protection. Its a solder jumper on side of the laser casing.

Sounds like you messed something else up when you installed the laser. Review your installation. If you're lucky, it's just a loose connection somewhere or something pressing on the motor. If you aren't lucky, you may have fried the electronics.

well if t is turned on the ps2 menu comes up and stuff all looks normal if i put a disc in the lasere moves back and fourth just the motor does not spin

well when I turn on the PS2 it goes like normal to the menu screen just like normal when I put a disc in the laser moves back and fourth just like normal but the disc does not spin it goes back and fourth about 4 or so times ten just stops nothing comes on the screen
