Why is my game disk not spinning?
I had my Playstation 2 'stored' in a drawer of my room. When I decided to rehook it to play after possibly 3-5 years, it was very dusty. I took the time to make sure I blew out remaining dust inside the console and on the surface, along with making sure my game disk was in decent condition to play. I found that my disk was not being read properly no matter how many times I tried, so I looked into detail to see if the laser was working, or if it was spinning. Surprisingly enough, the disk will not spin! The break that will release the disk does release it when the lid is closed, and the console should be detecting the lid is shut, but it just won't spin. It won't with movie DVDs, CDs, or game disks. The first time I tried it, the game worked fine, but then I tried making a new save from it, then the game froze. Therefore, it surely was spinning until the sudden stop after trying to make a new save. If further detail is needed, I will be glad to try to add it.
Is this a good question?
It wouldn't spin, even after cleaning dust so I put a disc in an it keeps goingetting to systeme browser so I left it with disc in and when I came back the game was now showing. Any idea why?

I'm having same issues too except nothing is turning over. I pushed down both sensors and no spin except for a loud buzzing. I've replaced the laser no spinning. All ribbon cables are intact. Not sure what to do.
