Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I have a Playstation 2 Slim. The disc will not spin after my son left the unit turned on all day. Any help with this repair?
There is 2 switch, first is front switch (part of the lid you open to put discs in - disc tray) was broken. There is also one on the rear of the lid - without these contacting the switches - it will not power up laser or spin discs. check this..

It is not a problem leaving your Slim turned on, it is mainly leaving a disc that is unreadable in the Slim for long times that melts the laser. So it is best if you find that your getting disc read error not to allow the laser to try reading it for hours needlessly.
I think I got an email or phone call from you about repairing this slim for you. I have ordered a power switch, and have lasers on hand. The cost for Repair and return shipping if I change the laser, and the reset/power button card, will be $39.. Contact me at Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
If you can do it yourself, you can get the power/reset button and LAser replacements on Ebay. I suggest not to resolder the swtich on as a new one is not that expensive.
