Don't Take It Apart!!! You'll ruin the warranty, you could probably still send it in it the warranty is still active. besides don't take it apart the chip is probably fried,

Laser needs to be replaced or the dvd drive swapped since you already cleaned the laser and the motor. You can do a search on google to see if you can pick up a cheap one or go on Ebay to look as well. You already took the steps I would have done to troubleshoot the problem.

Printer says 'cartridges missing or not detected'

Sounds as though you have a bum sensor, you may have to take it back to the store where you purchase it, or buy new cartridges and try them, you may have gotten some bad cartridges, it happens! Even tho they are new? Are they the correct ones for your unit????

We haven't even had a ps2 for a month

You should wait for a few days for it to work again, or maybe replace the disk drive.

PS2 Slim won't read dvd games

Blocking the sensors did you in I'm afraid. What has happened is the *DVD* read mechanism has gotten goofed because of this, but the *CD* read mechanism is still ok. Maximo and a few other PS2 games were actually on CD, not DVD. If you look on the back cover, you will see the Compact Disc logo (in the lower right area on the box for Maximo). These games have a blue bottom disc instead of the silver bottom. You can attempt to re-align the laser which is a fairly lengthy process and there are numerous guides out there to do this. Here is one: Note that this guide is for the larger model but the concept of lens adjustment is still the same and a quick google search will provide more in-depth detail. Since you have already opened your system, this may be an option for you. If the PS2 was purchased new as you said, it might not be the worst idea to exchange it for a new model as the lens going out this soon might be an indication that the unit wouldn't have lasted that long to begin with. Also just a friendly reminder that opening your PS2 voids your warranty and double check the return policies of where you bought the system.
