    very simple to fix. i had this problem too and i even replaced the motor for nothing!!

    it means the laser cable is not in correctly

    if the laser doesnt tell the ps2 theres a disc the motor will not move. check every cable. pull em all out and put em in again to make sure.

    did you remove the small piece of solder from the underside of the laser befre you fitted it? if you didnt you have blown the laser (I know coz i did it!!)

    should solve the problem
