I was cleaning out my ps2 for a disc read error and i managed to pull the silver strip connecting the cover to the bottom of the system. The strip came out of place under where the disc goes in. Where do i put it to fix my problem

When your PS2 starts to have problems reading silver backed discs you could be experiencing one of 2 different problems:
Your laser or disc is dirty (clean off your disc with a soft cotton cloth, and clean the laser in your PS2 with a cd drive cleaning cd)
The laser in your PS2 is going, you will need to take it into a shop to have it repaired, replace the laser or disc drive yourself (this will void the warranty if you have one) or get a new or different PS2.
sounds like your laser is failing. You can find tutorials on how to adjust, clean or replace your laser. Do a google search for " ps2 disc read error " it will give you a choice of plenty of tutorials to follow. Good luck
Disc read errors are mainly due to weak or dirty lens you should try cleaning lens first. When your PS2 lens is covered by dust it wont allow laser to read disc so its better to clean your PS2 lens first,if problem still exists then your PS2 lens is weak and you will have to take it to Sony repairer for service.I recommend all of PS2 owners to keep their PS2 at dust free environment.
Watch this video it will help you to learn how to clean your PS2,its easy you can do it at home. Wish you good luck and hope cleaning lens will solve your problem. Thank you!
really...mostly its the blue backs that mess up ..all i can say is if u have not already change you component video out in you configuration and change the disc speed and texture mapping.u can find that by going to the main screen and press triangle and go to ps driver and press triangle and pick the one u want to change..hope this helps :)
The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
yeah your laser is out of line. to correct it you have to open up your console a bit. Pull the rubber feet off the bottom and unscrew the shell, be really careful when you take the two halves apart because you have wires running between them. Then unscrew the black plastic cover over the drive and underneath you should see a large white gear with a slot for a hex key in the middle. Mark off the start position on this wheel then move it clockwise by one cog, close it up and try a disc. If it doesnt work, move the wheel round one more cog and try again.
Remember different types of disc work differently, the PS2 reads PS1 games easiest, then DVDs, then PS2 silver discs, then PS2 blue discs, so try them in turn.
If you look hard enough on the web there is a detailed explanation of this repair with photos that is worth seeking out
I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
Remove all the screws.
REmove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the REset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
Remove the Cd tray lid.
Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the Cd area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
REmove the little white disc from the Cd tray lid.
Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
