Well if you have tried everything my suggestion would be to get a replacement/ Where did you buy that PS2?

I never had any luch with the ps2. When I got the original it wouldn't play any dvd's besides anime for some reason, and wouldn't play ps1 or blue ps2 disks. When I got the slim, after a little over a year it became choosey about which ps2 games it would play, and didn't want to play any dvd's. I find them to be relatively untrustworthy systems.

In my experience I learned that a lot of problems with the slims stem from the lens being scratched or damaged. maybe you should have someone look at that, if they know what their doing anyway.
