PS2 door is broke

The door on our PS2 broke while open (my son tripped on it) and now the PS2 will not work. We tried to pop the door back on with the spring but the PS2 is not reading the discs. Help?

I'm sorry but you can't do anything now, you need a new PS2. It is configured to run in a cretain way, and by undoing that you can't make it back to where it was in factory.

Slimline ps2 all of a sudden stopped spinning, only browser


no,it cant spin with the door open,check the series,if it is an SCPH-7700x,then know it is a common problem with them,so the lense mechanism has to be replaced.if it has been opened before,make sure the .screw under the reset button is well tied,as well as the middle one on the opposite.take note,if the lense is too weak,it might not spin at all

My ps2 reset button is kind of ruined... help!?


The plastic (back part of the) button is likely cracked or broke off.
If you are not sure what you are doing when it comes to opening the console and examining it, it would be best to take it to someone that knows how to make adjustments to a PS2/electrical components. The connector and data ribbons are quite sensitive in the PS2 and if you're not careful, the ribbons or other components might get damaged permanently.... especially if you are touching it without an anti-static/grounding strap.

PS2 was dropped, now disc won't spin and can't be read.


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.

Dear Customer,

Due to the knocking of ps2 by ur son,it might have affected the reading lense of the ps2.so i request u to open the console.you would see another cover covering the lense.open tat too.with the help of tissue just try to wipe out the lense n jus turn on the ps2 without closing anythin to jus check whether everythin is workin..if the dvd works,then arrange back or put back everythin back to it's position..hope this would work...else try calling a service engineer.

Ps2


you were taking apart the ps2 since this is the fat ps2 im supposed to think first since your in the ps2 clean out the dust in it for future problems dust is why people keep throwing out fat ps2s and buying small ones they think its broke but its rather a dust problem clean it out the pute all the bolts in the right place if you dont have certain bolts in the ps2 doesnt start so have all the bolts in if its a ps2 slim try to unbolt all of the top and slide the lift thing in there scould be a little place in the top to just pop it in or bolt it in.... that could be a problem with the ribbon slide it back into the slot hopefully it still works the ribbon is really impotant its like a conector of the top and bottom part of the ps2 if all else fails get a repairman there are youssally reapair people at your local game place bestbuy, eb, gamestop ect.

Play Station 2 Slim Model


Its called a spindle and you might have to replace the whole spindle motor assembly. Search online for one, there are loads of sites selling PS2 part (make sure you get the right model number or your new part might not work).

Alternately, if there are any computer/electronics fairs in your area you could try there. I needed a spindle motor for a scrap machine I was refurbing a few months ago and bought one from a computer fair for £2.

Here is a video tutorial on how to take your PS2 apart to replace the bit.

Hi isolationman,

The screws are covered up by the pads on the bottom and square hole fillers. Take a thin blade knife and pry the squares up to reveal the screws.
