but you i'll have to open your ps2, and then you will notice a little black switch in the on the top of link image: http://www.richspsxparts.com/howto/lidclosed.jpg
now, open the switch (you i'll see a little wire metal inside) clean the inside part of the switch, and "bend" a little ( til you can make sure that will make contact when the lid is closed) and then close the switch.

The lens assembly is directly associated with a non spinning disk issue.
Here was my situation.
I purchased a used PS2 slim from an ebay seller that had the disk read error. I bought another lens from another ebay seller and when installed it, the disk would not spin. I then replaced the new lens assembly with my old one and the disk started spinning again but I still had the disk read error. I contacted the seller to send me a replacement lens assembly for the defective one I received.
Bottom line is if your lens assembly is bad, the disk will not spin. You can replace the lens assembly for about $4 or $5 on ebay.
This mostly occurs to all slimline PS2 it is a common problem.
Sounds like the lid of your PS2 may be damaged. If holding down the top starts a game up, but the PS2 will not start up by itself, something is preventing the case from holding down the switch on the motherboard that lets the PS2 know that the lid is closed. http://store.richspsxparts.com/slpsnospdi1a.html
Check out the website above for some troubleshooting info and a new lid, if you need it.
There is a Sensor on the lid that is designed to keep people from using things like Swapmagic to play Burned games on the Slimline version. Problem is, this Sensor likes to go out. I would contact sony and tell them their sensor has gone bad and request that they fix it. If you are still under warranty they should do this for free.
It's not enough to use a disk to clean the laser lens. You have to take the PS2 apart and clean the lens manually. Nicotine, Incense, diffusers, and other smokes and just time itself clouds the lens. Not only that but the part that the disk sits and spins on needs to be cleaned over time as well to assure the disk is in proper alignment and Is not just kinda spinning on the spindle.
In that link i posted above you be led to directions on how to take apart your PS2 and what parts to clean. The instructions I have posted in that tutorial is for the (FAT) PS2 model not SLIMLINE. If you have a slimline model you don't have to take apart anything just open your cover and clean the parts in the video.
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.
