Question PS2 not spinning discs, suggestions?

sponsored links

 
I have a PS2 v7 w/ a pro installed magic 2. It has worked flawlessly since I got it.

The situation: I paused my game (a dvd-r backup) last night and forgot about it till this morning. Now the ps2 will not load any retail/backup disc, it just goes to the browser/system config screen.

I don't really hear much noise from the disc drive, just a quick click on power up then nothing. I opened the top cover to check and the ps2 is spinning the disc like a couple of centimeters on power-on then stopping. I've searched the forum and haven't found anything quite like this. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately its sounds very much like the laser is suffering mate. Having it on pause overnight certainly won't have helped matters as the laser will stay on constantly reading the disc.

Can only suggest giving it a clean.. after that it'll probably require replacing.

Thanks for the response. I have tried cleaning the laser but no change. Can anyone suggest a guide to changing the laser?
