Here is a guide that might be able to help you fix the disk drive. Disc read errors are common on the PS2 http://faqs.ign.com/articles/387/387912p1.html

Playstation not reading any of my disks.


Playstations are not my forte, but judging by the symptoms, it looks like that drop either destroyed the disc drive, or damaged the connection between the disc drive and the motherboard.

If you feel confident, you can try disassembling the unit , and trying to diagnose the problem (check all leads, look for broken solder joints) and remedy it.

If you don't want to, or can't disassemble - Your best bet is a replacement unit or a professional repair.

Won't read PS2 discs


what has probably happened is that when you dropped it the part which recognises ps2 games was damaged so the best thing to do is take it to a repair shop or phoe the sony helpline.

PSP wont read games


Did you ever drop it? Usually if a PSP will not read UMD's, either the laser is dirty or it has been moved. If you dropped it, the laser has probably been moved. You'd have to take the whole entire thing apart to move the laser back, assuming you knew the position it should be in in the first place. Even if you have dropped it, the first thing I would do is to pick up a UMD drive cleaning kit for around $10 and try that. If that does not work, I would suggest sending it to be repaired. I hope this helps!

Playstation 3 broken!


what probably happened is when you dropped it which why was it dropped in the first place. the track that ejects the disk was probably knocked out of place resulting in the problem with the ejecting of the disk. the only thing that i can possibly think of is to check for screws and open up your ps3 then check the disk ejection system and see what was jumbled around. hope this helps dude.

Sony Trinitron Color Rainbow


Usually when a tv is dropped the phospher screen inside the picture tube will detatch making the rainbow color This cannot be fixed as it requires changing the picture tube. Only other thing is demagnatize it with a demagnitizing coil (used by tv techs) but not likely to fix it since it was dropped. You have a bad picture tube.
