I have a Ps2 slimline that comes on, plays for a few minutes then quits. The green light stays on and when I reset it comes back to the very first screen, then just before the "Playstation2" screen it dies. The disc continues to spin the green light stays on but the tv screen is black and no movement from the laser. Do these have an overheat switch that could be defective? I have worked on many ps2's but never encountered an issue like this. The laser is good as is the output.(checked with oscillscope). Some times it will play for and hour sometimes 2 minutes. There is no discernible pattern. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. LWB

Your lens is repeatedly touching the disc. In the future, this could be a big issue, and it is a sign that your lens is breaking down. On the slimline models, specifically SCPH-70000 models or greater, the lasers are disposable just about. They weaken easily, and they stop working fast. You can get a new laser for about 20 dollars from some websites.
Check some of your discs. If you notice any circular scratches, you'll know that your lens is touching the disc. Does it still read PSX, PS2 games (including DVD-9 dual layer games like Guitar Hero) well? Does it read fast? Can you still watch movies on your PS2? If not, your lens is breaking and you'll need to replace it.
that probably means that the disk is bad because that happens to me to alot with guitar hero or that u will need to put something on top of the ps2 were u put the disk in so that will keep it straite if that doesnt work then its the laser or the hard drive
you need to clean the lens of your ps2 by using the cd lens cleaner. you can use a cd lens cleaner either dry type or liquid type. you just play this and wait until a signal appear or a sound appear stating the completion of cleaning the lens
