Re: Playstation 2

There is a chance that the plastic track on the loading tray either has a break or is out or time with the load gears. Also located in the front of the dvd assembly, there is a load belt , sometimes after many hours of use, this belt becomes stretched and needs to be replaced. A knowledgeable technician can usually fix this problem for about $40 if the load tray does not have to be replaced. Also, if you decide to attemp this yourself, clean the laser while the unit is apart. Use eiher ispropal alcohol or acetone. Be careful not to spill any chemicals on the plastic. Scrivitron

My playstation 2 disk tray wont spin

the thing is, there can be 2 things.
  • The motor that spins the discs has gone bad. you cant do anything then, just pay the local dealer 20$, he'll fix it for ya
  • Or, your Disc tray is not closed properly. For solving this, try to keep somehitng heavy upon the disc tray, and then try.

Ps2 cd tray does not open and the eject button light flashes

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.

Plays when it feels like

Try using a compressed air can to blow air into the CD tray and also into the vents in the back. It sounds like either dust or debris is caught in the CD tray or is blocking the vent in the back causing the machine to over-heat.

Cd will not turn/ no data ps2

the tray belt in ur ps2 may have fallen off the wheel which causes the lazer inside ur ps2 to not move back and forward, it is nothing serious as it can easily be fixed back in place. get someone who is good with electronics who u no that will take the cover off ur console and remove the disc tray, then make sure everything is is able to move freely an check taat nothing is jamming it as it mite even be just a bit of thread wrapped around the tracks which the lazer moves on. thats al the help i can give u for now
