The sensor for the tray is messed up try taking the top cover off and checking the white plastic slider to see if it's off track.

SOURCE: PS2 not working

Try the auto diagnosis if it will let you; To start the auto diagnosis feature: Press the standby/RESET button on the front of your PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system to turn on the system. Make sure the indicator light turns green. The Main Menu screen will appear. NOTE: It might take some time for the main menu screen to appear. Using the directional buttons, highlight Browser and press x Highlight System and press x Highlight Diagnosis and press x Highlight On and press x Insert a disc. Auto diagnosis will start automatically. The system will make adjustments that might allow previously unplayable discs to be played. To start the disc after auto diagnosis is complete: Press o twice to return to the browser screen. Using the directional buttons, highlight Browser and press x Press x to play the disc. NOTE: The diagnosis setting automatically returns to its default state of Off when you press the standby/RESET button or start playing a PlayStation®2 disc. (any confusion check this link); http://www.us.playstation.com/support/ps2/hardwaresystem/default.html If that doesn't help then; "Owners of early PS2 models purchased from launch until spring 2003 often reported faulty optical drives in their consoles. The earliest drives suffered from a constantly misaligning laser lens, but later defects were the result of a shift in voltage to the laser. The first problem was easily remedied by opening the console's casing and tweaking a cog that controlled the lens' distance from the disc. However, this action voided the console's warranty. The second problem could be fixed by using an oscillator. After many consoles had broken down, a class action lawsuit was filed against Sony. Sony agreed to provide free repair or replacement for the faulty consoles and continued to do so until February 2005. Another problem that could cause a disc read error is wear on the coupling in the head assembly to the worm gear that moves the laser. A symptom of this is a loud repetitive clicking sound. However, this problem rarely occurs on newer consoles." Some of these units can be easily fixed by just cleaning the lens - check this link for instructions on how to open the ps2 up and how to clean the lens; http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Hardware/Guides/ps2diy/ They suggest isopropyl alcohol to clean with, without specifying a strength - gin works fine and is weak enough to be safe. Check this link for a very clear description of the whole process, including the voltage adjustment, only without pictures; http://faqs.ign.com/articles/390/390535p1.html Hope this helps, please ask again if these don't solve the problem :)

Send it into sony for repair (if it's past the warranty,my Suggestion is to ask for a Exchange Unit for $75.) :) I did that with mine and it came back a "new unit" (a refurbished v1)

When the disc tray pops out, reset the ps2 and wait for the tray to close and turn of the ps2 at the back. Then turn it on, press the reset button and it should work.

Disc Tray


The rubber band inside your PS2 might be broken, the rubber band supports the disc tray and it ejects and inserts the tray.

Sometimes if play too much long, some of the PS2 parts will be damaged by excessive heat, so my advice is that your minimum gameplay time must be 3-4 hours only.

Please den't even try forcing the tray to open, it will be more damaged.

Try resting your PS2 for about 1-2 days, after that try to open the tray, if the problem still persist bring to a PS2 fixer near you.

PS2 disk tray problem


This has happened to me before. You will have to open the PS2 and clean the laser which is under the tray(or on top i forgot).
Use a cotton bud to clean it but be extreamaly careful cause if you put to much pressure on the laser your PS2 is gone for good!
