Re: PS2 Slim Silv won't turn on laser or move, disk no...
When you replaced the laser, did you remove the shorting solder connection? These lasers are shorted to prevent static electricity from damaging the optics. There is an area on the optics that has a solder bridge that needs to be removed for proper operation. Check that first.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I'm going to say that if it wont read any disk your laser has died but lets try to clean the laser before you do anything else. check out the video below it will show you how to clean your ps2. you said you have the slim ps2 if not use the ps2 large videos they will show you step by step how to repair your system.
if you find that cleaning the laser does not work you can get a new laser lens assembly on Ebay cheap about $10.00 with free shipping. then you will want to use the lens replacement video its good for the full size and slim.
I hope I have been helpful please don't forget to rate and good luck if I can be of any more help just let me know.
If your spindle has stopped spinning, it will most likely be 1 of 2 problems. Either your spindle motor has burnt up, or even though it is very unlike, a lead wire that supplies the power to the spindle has became disconnected. Now, if the case it the burnt up spindle motor, there are hundreds of motors for every kind of PS on, of course, E-Bay. If the problem is for some reason, a soldered wire has broken from the motor. It is very simple to re-attach the lead with a quick touch from a soldering iron. I hope this has helped.
Not necessarily, just make sure that the laser is not locking up and its actually moving if not then that right there might be the problem. If it is moving then you might need a new laser. If its that the laser is not moving do not touch it instead try moving the ps2 and making sure that you don't hear any clanking noise inside.
I don't want to put you down or nothing but, buying the slim ps2 wasn't a great idea. If you bought the original ps2 it would've been better. The thing about the thin ps2 is the hd is small, the laser tends to become weaker faster. Go get the ps2 checked out someplace.
sounds like a faulty spindle. this is the part that spins your cd for the laser to read. if your using a fat ps2 its prolly the spindle. if your using a slim ps2 it could be the laser causing the problem not the spindle. the slim ps2 laser make the spindle work. if the laser isnt working right the cd might not spin or it might not spin fast enough or flat enough.
Sorry about no one paying attention to your problem for so long.
I just got started about a month ago. I have been repairing video Game consoles for over a decade though.
Your problem is that your slim has a melted down laser and lens assembly. The unit is dirty. You will need a new disc drive and a thorough cleaning to get it back in service.
The problem about the power light is due to excessive dust buildup shorting out the components on the motherboard. The video output is also comprimised by dust and dirt.
The disc spinning is possibly comprimised by hair wrapped around the disc drive spindle.
If you want, I can thoroughly detail clean your PS2 slim and replace the disc drive for $38 plus shipping both ways.
