Hi,the unit needs to have the laser reader lens cleaned but DON'T use regular rubbing alcohol. Get pure stuff....the rubbing type leaves a glare on glass and plastic lenses. Also ,the chrome rails that the laser moves along need to be cleaned and lubed with liquid silicone. This method clears read problems most of the time. That will do.
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.
I don't want to put you down or nothing but, buying the slim ps2 wasn't a great idea. If you bought the original ps2 it would've been better. The thing about the thin ps2 is the hd is small, the laser tends to become weaker faster. Go get the ps2 checked out someplace.
hello pauldonp...if this is an early version of the slimline they had a problem with over voltage which inturn took out the laser.your only option may be to replace the laser . sony did bring out a mod for this..i preferr the real old version of the ps2 as they had all separate boards and if one went faulty you didnot have to replace the lot ,also the lasers were a lot cheaper than the later models .in the slim lines the lasers are not all that expensive .they do take a bit of setting up as you have to know the ohms setting on the laser for each model..hope this helps
the best to do is the basics open your ps2 and inside open the disc box ( you can simply identify it it is the place where the disc is played) get a cotton buds and wipe gently and smoothly the lens. If still it won't work go to your nearest repair man for further advice.
I have the same model, What could be going wrong is your Power Callibration for the Laser might be off (Look on Youtube for Repairs on how to fix this) The site is : www.youtube.com Search "PS2 Repairs" :)
