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?
Re: Black screen, no disc spin or eject, fan spins
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.

Can you hear the fan spinning on the inside of the PS2? If the PS2 comes on, loads the disc, then shuts itself off, chances are it is overheating and shuts off to prevent damage. There is a small fan on the inside of the Slim PS2 that keeps it cool.
If you press the reset switch and it goes from red to green and immediately back to red without ever turning on, your motherboard is shot. ESD damage.
There are 4 reasons a disc won't spin on the Slim PSP. The most common is a failed laser.
1. Failed laser -- the disc will not spin up to speed, or not spin at all, due to a bad laser. If you close the PS2 with no disc inside, the ps2 will never spin the disc. If you chose the PS2 with a disc inside but a bad laser, it still thinks no disc is inside and will not spin.
2. Lid closed sensors. There are two of them. One on the motherboard and one on the reset switch. These sensors let the PS2 know that the lid is closed. If one or both of these break, the disc will never spin because the PS2 will think the lid is still open.
3. Damaged case. If the case of the PS2 is damaged, the two parts of the lid that are supposed to press the lid-closed sensors will never press them.

I just looked at a friend's PS2. Same story, tripped over cord, unit fell to floor. Unit powers up and sys. config. screen comes on but the drive didn't seem to be spinning up. Opened the case and found that the shaft of the drive motor for the laser tray had popped out of it's centering retainer ( little black bushing/holder). With the top off the unit, looking at the unit from the front, on the right side in the rear corner you'll see the motor. The worm shaft (bronze colored rod) runs towards the front of the unit. Where it ends it should sit centered in a black plastic holder, if it's off to the side a little pressure will pop it back in. Put the cover back on, and power it up, you should hear the drive spinning up. If it does you should be set. Hope this helps.
if you'll check the disc tray side you'll see a white slot where the ribbonwire should connect you'll also find some connectors colored pink green and white if you'll look thoroughly it is located beside those connectors
If it came loose from the buttons, you need to remove the button holder to get to the connector. Push he ribbon into the slot on the back of the buttons.
If it came loose from the motherboard, you will have to remove the guts of the PS2 to see the connector under the cd drive right side. This is done by removing 4 screws. Two are on either side of your Controller ports. Another one is located between the fan and power block. Another is to the left of the powerblock. lift the guts from the back and pull the system out. looking at the right side, plug the reset Eject ribbon into the 2nd connector from the front. Then put it all back together carefully.
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.
