don't think i can help, but i've a few questions that might be handy for anyone who can:

a) in what position have you been running the ps2? using a vertical stand, or just horizontal like normal?
b) what model of ps2 is it? it should say on the back somewhere, like SCPH-30001 or something close to that...
c) i know this might sound silly/stupid, but have you tried using a can of compressed air on the thing?

Actually, I once resurected a completely dead ps2 just by taking it apart and carefully cleaning it. Guess those things are dust sensitive.
