Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
When i turn on the ps2 slim the disc doesn't spin and the lens doesn't light up or move and, nothing comes on the screen. its almost as if there is no power to the optictical boards at all. how can i test it? can i transplant another setup into it?

The Laser driver on board the Slim PS2 Motherboard generally does not limit the current enough. What I have found is that the exceeding current flow that pumps the lens up and down actually gets the coils so hot that they melt the Lens and its frame. If the Slim is booting up fine, You only need to replace the Laser. NEw lasers come with a Solder blob on a small section of the circuit to prevent static damage in transport. One of the Sellers on Ebay will remove this blob for $1 extra. It is well worth that. It is quite agprevating to remove the solder Blob and not damage the circuit film, or spread solder across other circuitry.

Tips for a great answer:
I was experiencing the same problem on my ps2 slim scph-90004. When I put a game in my ps2 it loads but after some time it just freezes at the same spot.I went to many shops but they dont recognize my problem.Then i open my ps2 slim (Warning:Opening of ps2 my void your warranty) and saw the lens which was not adjusted. SO,if you are experiencing the same problem then use the above method(For slim only).Look at the rod near the lens which has two small clips on it. Open the screws on the clips and take out your ps2 lens.Clean it with a cotton.Set the lens in some different position and load your games .
