When I turn on the power to the PS2, the disk tray immediately opens. I put in a disk and close it, after 2 seconds it opens again as if I hit the eject button. The tray won't stay shut.


i would check if your eject button is stuck if it is try to pull it out a little with small plyers or its the eject sensor or finally it might also have something in the way of the tray if you dropped it on accident or something it will keep opening if something is in the way. hope this helps.

Disc tray wont open when eject button pressed on ps2


The disc tray motor needs to be replaced. You can find one on ebay. A relatively easy fix. Good luck!

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.

Can not eject tape


I had same problem, while transferring media from TRV-16 to DVD, tape would not play, then would not eject. This after transferring several tapes to DVD. I tried several things over the last couple months that did not work before finally getting it open today. It did me no good to remove several of the outer panels that were each held by two "tiny" phillips head screws each. Went to the internet, found your post, also found a post that referred me back to SONY page which follows.......

Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the cassette compartment will not open or the tape is stuck and will not eject.
IMPORTANT: If your camcorder model has a RESET button, first try pressing this button. If there is no RESET button, or pressing the button does not resolve the issue, continue with the troubleshooting steps below.
  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery from the camera.
  3. Remove the AC power supply from the camera.
  4. Slide the power switch on the camera to the VTR , VCR or CAMERA mode for 15 seconds.
  5. Slide the power switch back to the OFF position.
  6. Connect the AC power supply to the camera.
  7. Attempt to open the cassette compartment.
"NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required."

After I did this, I could hear a whirring sound when I hit eject, although nothing came out. While the whirring was going on, I pulled up and out with constant pressure and the cassette holder opened. The tape had jammed apparently as the little protective plastic tape guard was jammed partially open when I pulled the cassette out. Good Luck and don't be afraid to put a little pressure on the door if you can hear the door trying to open.

Now I turn to recovering the tape, but having grown up with cassette decks, don't believe it will be a problem.

Ps3 jammed disc


Unfortunately their is no step by step or guaranteed method to fix this. Here are a few things you could try: turning it off and on, press/hold the eject button, resetting while holding the eject button, shaking or tapping it a little while trying to eject it, holding it different ways ex. face disc opening down towards floor while gently tapping and pressing the eject button. Essentially do whatever you can to get the disc to jar loose, >but whatever you do, don't for any reason stick anything in the slot or try to open the case <Doing this will void the warranty for sure! If none of these work your last resort would be to return it for a new one (providing you still have your receipt and it's less than a year old) or take it to a costly repair guy.

Playstation 2 doesnt work


You are posted in the Big PS2 section, so I hope you got a Big PS2, not a slim. If you do have a slim, I think your motherboard is shot. If you do have the big PS2, you need to open th case up and Disassemble it to find out whats wrong.  Your probably have a SCPH-50001 and when you dropped it some of the plastic inside broke. 

You need to remove the 8 screws on the bottom, which are hidden by square screw covers. You can pop the screw covers up with a knife blade.  Remove the Warranty label on the cases seam next to where the power cable hooks in. Lift the case from the back slightly and pull it forward just enough to clear the CD drawer. Then roll the over cover counter clockwise being carfeul not pull reset/eject button cable loose. In this motion lay the case cover to the right side upside down. 

Now remove the little screws holding the cd Drive cover on.  Yo may ned to use a screwdriver to put in the rectangle holes and pry outward to release the catch at the back of the CD drive cover.  See if you see any damage and write back a comment here . Hope this helps.

 

I can fix it for a reasonable price for you if you're in the USA.  www.playstationclinic.com
