    I have playstation 2 V7. It boots up normally, but goes always to the boot menu. It doesn't spin the disc in drive. I have no modchip installed. What could be the possible reasons for this?

    I thought it could be...
    ...A blown fuse.
    ...malfunction in circuit.
    ...broken motor in DVD Drive.

    Can you give me some hints, please?

    I checked that the cables inside were correctly plugged.

    I had that very problem before but i opened it and there was a screw driver stuck near the lens.... pretty bad actually but i got it working again....
    now i have a new PS2 and i was told to take a vacum cleaner and use the brush and go along the air vents doing it regularly, not to put the ps2 vertically well so that i can't fall really. And never put in on carpet. NEVER... But cleaning the inside a bit and maybe using a bit of Metho would do the trick... Or your lens Is Done for it. have to replace it.

    Why are you talking about the lens? I told that the disc doesn't spin. If the disc doesn't spin there's no work for the lens. So I think the problem is to get the disc spinning first...

    Say you dont have a disk in the drive, the drive wont spin up because the laser has nothing to read.
    Same goes for the fact that if the laser is damaged, it wont read the disk therefore the dvd drive will not spin it.
    Basically the laser lens is the boss of the dvd drive.
    So the problem could be the lens.

    Ok. The problem was that the cable which goes from main board to the lens wasn't well connected. Now it works. Thank you!
