Ps2 disc not spinning after installing new laser

Hey guys. My ps2 had an old laser, the games were running, but quite laggy. So I ordered a new lens for my console.

Today it finally arrived. I successfully replaced the old lens with the new one, but now when I power up the console, the disc doesn't spin. The laser moves to the place where it should start reading, but the disc isn't moving at all!

None of this happened with the old laser. I don't think that I broke something, because everything went smooth.

I tried to run the disc with console taken apart (having those two black sensors pushed down, so it would read the disc), but, as I said before, only the laser moves, zooms in and out and thats all. The disc doesnt move at all!

Any help is appreciated!

P.S. I'm not sure if this helps at all, but the console is modded with Matrix Infinity chip v1.99.

Is it possible that one of the cables could have become disconnected? I don't have a playstation2 but I have a Saturn which is also a disc based system. When replacing the laser did you also check for compatibility with your overall system configuration? (the mod chip will not affect this) Which dvd drive yours have? It is possible that it does not detect the laser as well.

Laser assemblies are shipped shorted. There should be a small area that has a solder "blob" that will short two traces. Remove this solder. Otherwise the laser won't work, just as you describe.

In general, once the laser is in the home position, it starts long enough to verify that there is a disc there. If no disc is detected, there will be no spinning.

@abrsvc thank you very much for the reply! Big thanks! Could you please specify where is this soldier "blob"? I'm not very advanced in this, sorry..


This is the laser I shipped. Thank you so much!!!

Old thread, similar question. I've removed the laser blob disc spins but laser only travels halfway back or forward (depending on where it was). What can I check that would prevent the laser from moving all the way on its rails?
