Ps2 slim wont play anything
Ps2 slim wont play anything –
A friend of mine gave me his Ps2 Slim to fix. It turns on just fine (except it seems the adapter has a short), no matter what cd/dvd I put in it doesn't work. The laser and the motor do not move. I took off the top part of the case and powered it up and depressed the two switched on the board that lets the Ps2 slim know its closed but the only thing that happen is that the laser flashed red (does not stay on) and that's it.
Is there anything I can do to get them work or does he have to buy a new motor and laser for it. His Ps2 Slim is model SCPH 70011.
In this case i would automatically blame the motor and laser, first replace those. Considering you got it from a friend, you dont reall know what happened to it. So first replace those and if nothing happens then im gonna say its the logic board. But its worth a shot to replace the laser/motor.

Probably it was Disc Read Error. That is the general "Panic!!!" PS2 Output Error for anything regarding the disc drive, usually caused by an uncalibrated laser. However, that is not the problem you're experiencing, as the disc isn't spinning.
