  • When I boot it with no disc, enter Browser and insert a disc, I get "Reading disc The disc doesn't spin. With any disc, DVD or game. Sometimes I hear the fan; sometimes I don't. Sometimes it works perfectly if I just give it a good ol' fashioned thump. The disc will spin and it loads up instantly when I boot it from standby - I don't even see the PS2 menu.

    And a DVD will play from start to finish with no hitches. Usually, though, no such luck.

    Only clicking. I figure it's a minor mechanical fault, but I don't know how to fix it. Lengthy Googling turned up a promising thread no links allowed and part of one answer seems to describe my issue - "5th Once I had a "worm" motor go bad that moves the laser. The case I had it would see the disk but would not read it. Found the laser didn't move at all.

    When the readin is turned on or the lid is shut, the laser should always move to the center of the disk and a small switch is pressed so the system knows where the laser is at. Also the switch can go bad and continually try to move to laser to the center causing a clicking notice that don't go away until you shut it off.

    It must be tiny if a hearty smack is enough to temporarily fix it. That or the worm drive motor, which I'd be happy to replace, but I'm not confident that's the real problem skim am hesitant to order the part. I am vairy poorman. Anyone know where I'd find this switch?

    Should I just replace the worm drive motor? It works fine now. When I blew out the dust as mentioned above, I had not actually taken the console apart, I just blew in the holes inside the lid.

      The CD does not spin. The laser unit and the spinner are brand new. What do I need to replace?
