    Hello my ps2 slim wont spin. I tried installing the magic key set and the 3rd piece was giving me problems, I took it off and now when i turn off the lid even with the lid closed it wont spin any games. It just goes straight to the browser screen. I know its not the laser because that doesnt even move at all it just doesnt try to read the disc at all.

    no thats not it, i have the kit. The problem is that even after i removed all the items and stuff, my ps2 wont spin. I think i broke something because it wont even play my regular games or even try to read the disc it just stays frozen without spinning.

    Even if the lid is closed? If that's the case, then it looks like one of the lid sensors is broken. Imagine that.

    I won't make a new thread since this is similar. I got a new clear case for the slim PS2 and Swap Magic and I broke the rear lid sensor off. What can I do to fix it? Can I Solder it back on?

    The disk is not spinning because the flip top is not making contact with the sensors. Make sure the flip top is installed correctly. If the sensors are still not pushed down, boot up the swap magic disk and GENTLY put pressure on top of the flip top and see if the disk begins to be read. If it does, this means it is definitely the sensors. Like in my first post, open the ps2 and put a piece of thick tape over the rear sensor and a piece of tissue paper in the hole where the front cover opens. This will solve the problem.
