Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
I left it on overnight by accident while itwas running soulcalibur and when I restarted it to play a movie it just stayed on the console menu without ever recognizing there was a disc inside.
Your laser has probably worn out. Not really because you left it on over night, but lasers on the playstation 2 do wear out in time. Especially if you use it as a DVD player.

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.
