Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
I was finished playing a game and ejected the disk as normal, then i inserted a DVD to watch a movie i pushed the button to make the disk tray go back in and it stops about half way and pops back out it does this a couple of times and stops. Its as if it is running into something but there is nothing in there as i was just playing a video game just fine with no problems.
Any help would be much appriciated!
IF FOR SOME REASON THE TRAY DOES NOT OPEN, OR HALF-WAY OPENS FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING STEPS TO RE ALIGN IT.
STEP 1) TAKE THE COVER OFF, BY UNSCREWING IT FROM THE BOTTOM.
STEP 2) NOW TAKE OFF THE 4 SMALL SCREWS ON TOP OF THE CD ASSEMBLY, ONCE YOU TAKE THEM OFF THE TOP SHOULD COME OFF EASILY.
STEP 3 ) YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE SPINDLE AND THE LASER NOW. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE TURN THE PS2 ON AND HIT THE POWER BUTTON. ONCE YOU HIT THE POWER BUTTON THE SPINDLE SHOULD SPIN AND THE LASER SHOULD MOVE FOWARD AND BACKWARDS AND ALSO UP AND DOWN. IF ALL THIS HAPPENS THEN YOUR PROBLEM PROBABLY IS THE TRAY IF ONE OF THOSE THINGS DON'T MOVE THEN THATS PROBABLY YOUR PROBLEM. NOW HIT THE REST BUTTON AND SEE WHAT HAPPEN
STEP 4) IF THE TRAY IS MISALIGNED, LOOK TOWARDS THE FRONT LEFT SIDE OF THE TRAY YOU WIL SEE TWO SCREWS, TAKE THOSE OFF SO YOU CAN TAKE THE TRAY OFF.
STEP 5) ONCE THE SCREWS ARE OFF, LIFT THAT SIDE AT ABOUT A 45 DEGREE ANGLE AND PUL THE TRAY OUT.
STEP 6) BEFORE WE TRY TO REALIGN IT TURN THE POWER BACK ON AND HIT THE EJECT BUTTON, WE JUST WANT TO PROVE ALL THE GEARS AND THE MOTORS ARE WORKING. IF THEY DO MOVE THEN THE ONLY THING NEEDED IS THE REALIGNMENT. IF THE GEARS DON'T MOVE YOU PROBABALY HAVE A BAD MOTOR OR A GEAR MIGHT BE BAD
STEP 7) NOW TO REALIGN IT. MAKE SURE THE CD TRAY SLIDE, THE WHITE PIECE, IS ALL THE WAY TO THE LEFT.
STEP 8) WE ARE GOING TO SLIDE THE TRAY ALL THE WAY IN, BUT MAKE SURE ITS DONE IN A 45 DEGREE ANGLE AND THAT THE TRAY IS ONLY CONNECTED TO THE RIGHT. ONCE ITS IN ALL THE WAY LOWER THE TRAY TO THE LEFT SIDE. IF IT HITS THE PIECE IN THE BACK-LEFT PULL IT A BIT FORWARD. IT SHOULD FALL IN EASILY. NOW TURN THE PS2 ON AGAIN AND EJECT THE TRAY, HOPEFULLY IT OPENS ALL THE WAY. IF IT DIDN'T START AT STEP 5 AND START AGAIN. SOMETIMES IT TAKES 2 OR 3 TIMES TO GET IT INTO THE RIGHT PLACE.
