    Recently my slimline quit reading discs. It powers up, boots up, and goes into the menu just fine. When I put a disc in, it says reading but then gets the error.

    I used the tape down method and swap discs to play my backups so I can't send it for warranty.

    I assumed it may be the dead laser so I bought a new one just to try it. I installed the laser and got the exact same problem.

    Anyone have any idea on what it may be and how I can fix it?

    Ok, so I did some more testing and it appears the disc won't spin at all.

    When I push down the two lid switches, I can hear the motor but the disc will not spin.

    Any ideas?
