I do not think moving the console while playing is the problem. It might scratch, of course, when you move while you're playing, but what when you're not and it keep scratching disks? Problem the people who have posted here, haven't been moving when playing. My PS2Slim is scratching my disks too. I have put a new unscratched disk onto it, and made it load the game, and just for few minutes I turn it off and take the disk out, I see a small scratch on near the outer side of the disk. And it is doing that constantly, on the same place, without moving the console. The console is not on vertical position, but horizontal.
I was reading somewhere that when the disk starts to spin it vibrates, which makes sense. If you lift your cover and check, there is a piece of small cloth like or sponge, I don't know near the top part, near where the disk lense is, it kind of like keeps the disk still. But from time to time of being using the PS2, that small thing gets worn out it could be probably that thing that is not working as it is supposed to be, so the disk starts to vibrate more than it use to and then the disk gets scratched. This is just an hypothesis. I still need to find a way to replace that small piece to see if that's the problem.

Replacing the small peice of padding does seem to work, i took a more budget approach and made a new pad from a cotton pad and a slip of masking tape to keep the shape, then i simply super glued it (very carefully) over the old worn pad. I ran an old demo disk for ten minutes or so to let it wear a healthy groove into the new pad and when i removed it, no scratches! It seems that the superglue used gave it a firmer shape too which supports the disk better I would imagine. BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO GLUE THE LITLLE PLASTIC PAD HOLDER INTO PLACE - IT IS SUPPOSED TO MOVE SLIGHTLY! Also, be careful not to make your pad too hard or thick, as that cant be good.

Your disks get scrached most probbably because you move your console when your PS2 is running and there is a disk in the disk tray. Always turn off you console when moving it around.

First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.
There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
