    Have you inserted the disk correctly?

    You have to insert the disk VERY VERY carefully in the slim PS2.

    I really hope that the laser isn´t damaged....

    the laser is in the back of the system. You may need to adjust the laser. With the normal ps2, you have to open it, and located just above the laser, is a white knob.Rotate the knob 2-3 notches. Do remember that this will viod any warrenty.
