I got it to work. It actually was spinning, as I discovered when I disassembled it. However, It wouldn't read the cd. It would attempt and then you would get the "read error" on the screen. I poured through forums that offered advice to users in my position. The PS2 has a laser adjust tab to adjust the distance between the laser and the disc. I tried that for about an hour and no luck. Finally I had a bright idea (actually it took me way to long to think of it) so I grabbed a bottle of vodka and a cotton swap, cleaned the laser head and voila! the PS2 works like new. :lol:
