I have fixed this issue twice in two different PS2's. You have to take the PS2 apart and clean the laser. Also make sure the Laser can move freely, when you are done make sure the laser is at the most inner part before putting the PS2 back together. Taking it apart isn't too easy, but it's not that hard either. CAUTION: Be carefule of the ribbon cables, they will break EASILY. You have to carefully remove the cover, a ribbon cable( or two) needs to be disconnected before you can completely remove the cover.
ps2 slimlines had as problem with doing the lasers .this was a fault of over voltage to the laser lense.sony did bring out a mod for this.you would have to replace the laser .they are not all that dear.make sure you get the right one for your model
hello pauldonp...if this is an early version of the slimline they had a problem with over voltage which inturn took out the laser.your only option may be to replace the laser . sony did bring out a mod for this..i preferr the real old version of the ps2 as they had all separate boards and if one went faulty you didnot have to replace the lot ,also the lasers were a lot cheaper than the later models .in the slim lines the lasers are not all that expensive .they do take a bit of setting up as you have to know the ohms setting on the laser for each model..hope this helps
I had the very same problem with my ps2. What I had found was that I had indeed gotten a nonfunctioning laser. After I installed another new laser, the system functions without any problem. I hope this information helps you.
I am StokesG too. Greg Stokes From South Carolina USA. You Laser has melted. If you good with Electronics repair like me, you could open the case back up and replace the laser. The Ribbon cable that connects to the laser is held in place. You have to carefully unlatch the retainer that holds the Ribbon in. I think it is read and pulls out on both ends of the ribbon connector. Its not a flip up type, it is a pull out type connector. You can get another laser from www.repairmyvideogame.com
Re order the optical carrier ribbon, form the net and also make sure the optical laser is the right class, amp. Volt and resistance as the normal one. If you put in a different 'class' laser the device could be more damaged... hopefully not. Now your warranty is out the window as you have opened the box yourself. Firstly the easier thing is to buy a whole new blue ray device, it should be a Sony, (no surprise) just quote the serial number and device name on the web or on the phone and volla! Install the device and everything should be working. Good luck.
Did you remove the anti static solder blob (point) on your new laser with a soldering iron and solder wick prior to installing it? The symptons your explaining indicate that point is still intact, If so you will need to carefully remove it first then reinstall the laser and try again.
