Is it silver? does your system turn on? if not, that 'wide strip' powers your PS2. if you have a fat PS2, go here and go to the very end. hope this helps.

I broke the silver strip connecting the top to the bottom of the playstation - how can i fix this?

Ok 2 solutions for 2 seperate issues. Before we begin the silver strip you are refering to is recongnizable to the PS2 as the main power source. It comes from where the reset and power button are located and slides in place underneath the disc holder to tell the PS2 we have power.
Ok moving on.
Issue #1 Where the strip is all intact and nothing broke off it with the white tipped end just fine. What you need to do to fix this. MAKE NOTE HERE THAT THIS WILL VOID ANY WARRANTY U HAVE ON THE PS2. Go online and find a step-by-step instruction on how to take the top off then the disc holder. Now you need tweezers for this. You have the Silver Strip and if you look under the disc holder you will see 3 slots (2 filled with other silver strips) the middle is the power. Take the tweezers and put them on the tip of the stripe and GENTLY AND I STRESS GENTLY slide it into the slot with the blue tip underneath.
Issue #2 Where the strip is off but is in half. You need super glue you should be able to super glue the two parts back together if you are careful. JUST REMEMBER SONY WILL NOT TAKE IT SINCE TAKING OFF THE TOP VOIDS ANY WARRANTY. If the super glue works then follow same instructions in solution #1 sliding it into place if not able to be super glued then your PS2 is no longer functional and im srry for the loss. (If that's the case i can make it to the funeral just not the viewing) Happy Fixings!
Hope this Helped and was very Easy to Understand NoobTerminator aka Manchild

The console works (comes on , tray opens and closes,) after putting disc in tray and closing it makes a sound like disc reading then stops ,nothing on screen ,,Is this a replace the laser job??

its not dealing with the laser. your cord inside connecting your ps2 top cover to your tray might be lose or not connecting like it should. take apart the ps2 and see if it is connected. if not place it back inside the tray slot inside of the ps2.

Tape strip came deattached

You can't. That strip is more or less a wire. You'll need to replace the whole laser assembly.

My ps2 wont play games

firstly, have the appropriate tools. tools include:: standard philips, jewelers philips(tiny screwdriver), a ziploc baggie, a q-tip, and hydrogen peroxide. open the ps2. there are 4 or six screws depending on the model. the screws are on the bottom. the screws have covers so take them off. Once the screws have been removed, remove the top cover. Again depending on the model, thier might be a strip connected to the top cover going to the reset and open buttons(so be CAREFULL). If u have a older model then this part will be more difficult. on the right side of the ps2, thier should be four screws holding the top of the cd reader down. remove the four screws and pull the top off. now inside the cd reader, thier should be two axle like metal poles going horizontal. This controls the laser so it can move back and forth. dust usually collects on these. clean these off, but make sure thier is still some grease on them. if u mess this up u can go buy ps2 grease. now finally to the fixing of the eye(laser). get a q-tip, dip it in a bottle of hydrogen peroxide. use the wet side and gently rub the eye(laser). then take the dry side of the q-tip, and dry the eye(laser). if u want to test the ps2, but u dont want to put it all back together, u can just set the cover back on. or (i wouldnt suggest this) u can take the white magnet out of the top cover and place it on the center reciever. it worked for me so i hope it works for u.
