This is the tray getting stuck on the PS2 shell/casing. I can fix mine as it does the same thing but I tap it one quick time after I hit the eject button and it will usually open. Don't try to pry the tray open or this will make the problem worse.

    It may also be that your eject motor is going out. You should probably have someone inspect your PS2 and provide a diagnosis for this issue.

    Green light turns on but blue light dosent turn on. Also the ejection tray dosent come out.

    ahh my friend had the same problem
    if you had opened your ps2 the cord connecting to your motherboard for the tray the cord probably came off its a gray cord you take your ps2 apart and it connects the top part to the bottom part just reconnect it to the insertion point it connected to and you should be back in businesas

    Hi Sammy,

    You have a connection problem in the Reset Eject circuit.

    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.
    1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
    2. 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.
    3. Remove all the screws.
    4. Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
    5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
    6. 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.
    7. Check to be sure the ribbon cable coming from the reset/eject cable is fully inserted in the second connector from the front.
    If this is not the case, you may want to check out . This could be a circuit problem and may need technical knowledge to gain repair.

    Playstation 2 power button

    Try pushing the eject button to see if the power button is faulty. If the PS2 is off and you press the eject button, it automatically turns the PS2 on and ejects the DVD tray.

    PlayStation wont power on

    The jumper between the buttons and motherboard may be disconected. Open up your ps2, see if there is a blue /white ribbon cable that is unpluged. If you have already opened your ps2 rrior to this, thr case map be jamming the button.
