Ok so I've had my slim PS2 for a while now and it seems to have worn out maybe? Anyway when I put a disc in the drive, it won't play it. It won't even try to read it, and I know the problem. What I want to know is, how do I fix it (or can I)? The problem is the sensors that detect that the tray is closed, in other words when I put a game in and close the door, the system thinks that the door is still open. Every once in a while if I tap it the right way it may decide to play but for the most part it seems to be screwed. HELP!!

You might need a new DVD drive too. Sounds like you need expert help, i had sent my PS3 to videogame911.com after i attempted to work on it my self and they repair everything, even saved my data. Got it back within the week and at a very reasonable price. Hope this helps you.
God of War II being one of the few Dual-Layer discs on the PS2, it is possible that your problem originates from your PS2 lens being unable to read it correctly. The PS2 Slim is supposed to be able to read Dual-Layer, thus you should try cleaning your lens, it may be dirty, leading to this kind of error while still able to read Single-Layer discs.
You have either a scratched, dirty, or worn out lens if the disc spins and does not read. If cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning disc does not help, I would recommend either buying a new PS2 DVD drive or a new PS2. A new drive will be about 5-25 dollars and you will either have to find somebody to, or you yourself put it in just don't destroy your PS2 in the process. You can find PS2's for about 40-140 depending on fat or slim and new or used.
i have encountered these problem with my slim ps2 many times before... the solution for your problem is very easy......
when you insert your disk in your slim ps2 you must hear atleast three quick click sounds, theis sounds represents the cd has been locked in into the driver, to be able to check if it has already locked touch the top part of the cd pertaining to the center part once youve touched it feel if there is no unbalanced portion... if no your ready to play...... if yes reinsert it until you hit the right angle..... these takes a lot of practice just to do it safe for the console and the person..... enjoy...................
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. http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r96/Daiv_The_Goriya/Pushdown.jpg Watch what it does. Does it stop spinning? If so, see this pic http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r96/Daiv_The_Goriya/PS2problem.jpg
This keeps the disc from spinning when the cover is open.
push this down while following the instructions from the first pic. Does the disc work?
There's usually a small object that pushes #2 down. Chances are it broke off.
