I was using my slim PS2 today and it was working normally. I then turned it off and later turned it on and it didn't read the disc. I thought that was awkward, so I opened the tray (?) and closed it, and the disc was read fine and the game functioned normally. Then, about ten hours later I tried turning on the ps2 to play the same game, and it didn't read it. I tried opening the tray once more and closed it, but it still didn't read. I cleaned the lens with rubbing alcohol but that didn't work either. When I open and close the tray, it makes a noise like it is going to read the disc, but then the noises stop...could this be a problem with the motor. Sorry for my terminology (tray and motor)....I'm kinda computer illiterate. If anybody could PLEASE help me, I would really really appreciate it. Thank you.
