Power comes on but nothing spins. I took it apart to clean the laser but no red beam comes on like i have read should happen...what is that battery that attaches to the board??? could that need to be replaced??? HElp Me Thanks
Refix the cable in connector below lens and regarding battery that attached to the board is nothing to do with this problem it just provides a small backup current for motherboard to prevent form erasing of user's data for eg: clock setting,languages etc.

Tips for a great answer:
I have seen this a couple of times. Lightning or an overload has burned up the motherboard. Its not a fuse, its a fried Emotion Engine processor. Best advice on dead motherboard is to probably total it unless you can get a low price motherboard replacement. My cost on a new motherboard for slim is about $55. If you want it fixed, replace the motherboard. Really you may be able to get another Slim for $55 or less. If you look on ebay for another motherboard do not take any chances on used motherboards. Go for a broken slim model that will boot up but want read discs. When you get one that boots up, use its motherboard in your Slim. This will be your best deal at getting your slim up and running once more.
