Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Hello when working inside my fat Ps2 to remove a jammed disc i accidentally pulled the fan connector from the motherboard and subsequently lost the connector. When the console was reassembled it worked perfectly except for the fan. So i disassembled the console again and soldered the wires from the fan back to the motherboard. When the console was reassembled and turned on i have this scenario: Fan spins, black screen, no audio, disc not spinning, disc tray won't open, blue light not on, green light on. Reset button works but eject doesn't. Did I short something out or fry something inside?
That same thing happened to me. I disassembled the ps2 to find out the problem, I found out. If your console does not turn on or no lights check the silver ribbin connected to the reset button. See If it is in all the way the top and the bottom of the ribbin or check to see if there are any tares in it if there is replace it . You can get good parts off of Ebay.

The Game your playing is probably a Blue colored media. That is ones that spin so fast. You console has become dusty and loaded with lint probably. You can open the case and clean up the insides. Also while your in there, remove the ocver and polish up the lasers lens. This will probably get you back in business. If you do nto have success, contact me at Repairtech@ playstationclinic.com I run The Playstation Clinic at www.playstationclinic.com If you have a Slim Model it will cost more than the big model to repair. The slim model is $41 full refurbish including return shipping inside the USA. The big Fat PS2 Versions are $36 including return shipping.
