Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

After cleaning, the power wont turn back on

Earlier in the day I cleaned my lens, then closed my PS2 back up. I sat down to play and it wouldn't accept power, I unplugged it, moved the cord... blah blah. Nothing worked. What could have I done to my PS2 during cleaning to create this problem? My PS2 is the old fat one, but a slightly newer model so I learned from opening it. It's two and a half years old. Please help...

80% chances that the flexible cable ,its unplugged. please open it a check if the power switc has this properly connected on both sides, and if is not broken.

How to Clean PS2 laser lens. Older PS2
  • Step 1 Check the lens-cleaning disk. It is important that it is free from dirt or debris. If its dirty, the disk can damage the laser lens on the Playstation 2.
  • Step 2 Press the Playstation 2 open button. Insert the lens-cleaning disk in the tray and close.
  • Step 3 Wait roughly 10 seconds for the disk to read. The brushes on the lens disk will clean the laser.
    New Slim PS2
  • Step 1 Unhook the PS2 from the outlet and the TV. If the power cord has a connection to the outlet, damage can occur.
  • Step 2 Dip a cotton swab into an alcohol bottle. Open the lid of the PS2 with the button.
  • Step 3 Use the cotton swab to rub the lens. Gently brush the laser lens with the cotton swab, covering the entire area.
  • Step 4 Wait about an hour for the laser to dry

  • I had this same issue with my Older style PS2 and I had to take it apart and manually clean the lens. It worked perfectly after that. I was extremely nervous opening up my system, but if it didn't work I was willing to take the chance.

    Playstation 2 problem


    I would try cleaning your Playstation games, Check and make sure that the games your trying to play are not cracked in anyway. Also, if you have your system standing vertically lay it down horizontally. Many times after you've closed the disk in it lens to far away from the lens.

    My PS2 will not play PS2 games, but it will play PS1 games


    Hi
    If it will play DVD's this is a good sign. You will only need to clean the lens of the laser. Also clean the hub that the Disc rides on.
    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. Remove the Cd tray lid.
    8. 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.
    9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
    10. REmove the little white disc from the Cd tray lid.
    11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
    12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
    13. Put it back together, and your in business.
    If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for Repair. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
