    So I tried to watch a movie this morning and my PS2 slim didnt work for me.

    I put a disk in and I can hear it spinning. I then tried to reset the machine and every time I reset the machine it give me the opening sound and picture of the ps2. However after that the tv goes blank and gives me a black screen.

    What I did.

    I did a little searching on the net and found your site on how to take the case off in thinking that maybe I had a broken plastic tab on the cover or something but after taking the cover off and holding down the two button. The disk spins and the lazer comes on but the screen is still black.

    any ideas as to what might be wrong?

    Thanks again for the help

    Hi there. You should dissamble your console and remove the upper part. Put a disk, turn it on, press and hold 2 switches. If there is red light in lens and the motor spins the disk but there is reading it could be a bad head. You have to change it. Spin the motor with your finfer it must spin without force.
