Here is the process for troubleshooting this specific issue:
First remove your disc from the tray. I assume you have already done this.
Ensure your faceplate (the front of your system) is on correctly. Sometimes these can become loose and off kilter. Press the two edges firmly with your hands and "push" it into place.
Push the eject button. Although it hasn't worked in the past, adjusting the faceplate may correct the issue.
If that doesn't work, move the disc tray drive gently from left to right when it is open. Again, be gentle-- what we're trying to do here is slightly adjust the disc tray in case it isn't entering your system properly.
Still not working? Time to send it to Microsoft for repair. You can find all of that information on their official support site. Click here for more details.
There should ba a tiny hole on the front of the tray cover on the drive. Switch off, get a paper clip or something about the same thickness and insert it carefully in to the hole, push it in until the tray opens.
This problem is caused by a loose drive belt in the eject mechanism, you need to open the ps2 and replace the drive belt...
Take off the top cover, then take off the cover from the top of the dvd drive mech... then carefully remove the disc tray and you should see the belt near the front. Replace that belt and it should work fine again
On a couple of rare occasions the drive motor has been found to be faulty, but usually replacing the belt will fix it
I just had the same problem with the same model. Disc five was saying no disc and would not play any other discs. I opened the radio and found the the CD tray was missing a piece for disc five. You have to put the disc tray back into the holder to fix it. Make sure it locks in place and you should be able to get the rest to work.
I know this is an old post but I saw it through google, because I had the same problem.
I ended up tearing the CD door off and was able to look in and see that one of the cds was stuck. The player was trying to play disc 1 but had pulled disc 2 in under neith and it was stuck, causing the issue. As soon as I pulled disc 2 out the system works great.
Sounds like there may be a glitch in the microprocesor. Make sure when you unplug it that you leave it along for a few days and is there any type of clock or standby batterys in it take them out as well. If that dosent correct the problem your gonna need a service manual to trace the switch pulse to see if the units Switch matrix lines are low or lost because of a faulty micro or a bad componet like a small caps they install on the matrix to keep noise off them. Hard one to call with out seeing unit and analizing unit Good Luck
