Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
My Playstation 2 slim wont read any type of disc at all. It turns on alright and can read the memory card but every time i put a disc in it doesnt even read it, and i dont think it spins either. My brother said he accidently put in his labtop charger into the back instead of the playstaion 2 wire thing (not exactly an electronic expert lol) as both are identical and since then it doesnt read any game or dvd discs.
Help!!! Playstation 2 is the only thing keeping me alive these holidays lol!
OK. First of all, put any disc in and turn on the PS2. Push the spot shown here down with something about the size of the TV end of the AV cable.
Watch what it does. Does it stop spinning? If so, see this pic
This piece here is what broke off on my PS2 as seen in the previous image. If you can find some way to glue it back on, you should be back in business.

Well if there is a difference in the voltages on these cables then you may have damaged the CD-ROM drive

Same problem here. The unit worked yesterday, today it won't read any discs. I've barely used the thing, so it shouldn't be an over-use / worn out issue. Are the PS2 slims all starting to fall apart at the same time?

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.
