Re: reset ribbon

First, you need to be able to solder, ask your dad to help. You need to attatch the ribbon to the ribbon cable socket by soldering the metal together. Good luck.

I can't my Disc to eject from my Wii Console. Does anyone have a solution to this problem, other than taking it in for service?

Try all of these steps:
1. Turn the Wii off and on again after about 20 seconds. Press the eject button again. If no help:
2. Unplug the Wii's AC power supply if Step 1 doesn't work. Wait 1 to 2 minutes, and trying to eject the disc again after turning the Wii back on. If no help: 3. Hold down the eject button for 5 to 10 seconds. Still not: 4. Try ejecting the disc with the Wii at different angles. If you hold the Wii upside down, it may help the disc fall out. if no help: 5. See if power light was coming on and do the AC adapter reset. unplug from both ends for 90 seconds.Hold eject button for 5-10 seconds Finally: Call Nintendo 1-800-255-3700 and send the Wii back if non of these steps work. In most cases, a disc stuck in the Wii should be covered by warranty. Good Luck

System wont load or eject any discs...

Remove the disc drive from the console. Remove the cover very carefull. Take the top part off (remove the 5 screws) and open the disc drive like a book.
Carefull remove the guide mechanism (the front part -1 screw).
The clicking noise is caused by the fact that the left side mechanism that raises and loweres the deck when the disk is inserted or ejected is stuck. Carefull push back the piece of plastic with teeth located on the left side of the deck (as you are looking at the disk drive the oposite side with the lens driving motor) until it clears complete the plastic round gear that drives that part.
mount back the guide mechanism, and the top part.
Attached the ribbon cables to the unit , power the console and keep the eject button pushed for about 10-15 seconds.
That will reset all the gears and stuff.
Worked for me when I experienced that issue.

PS2 power ribbon

Hi Anishpp

If it came loose from the buttons, you need to remove the button holder to get to the connector. Push he ribbon into the slot on the back of the buttons.

If it came loose from the motherboard, you will have to remove the guts of the PS2 to see the connector under the cd drive right side. This is done by removing 4 screws. Two are on either side of your Controller ports. Another one is located between the fan and power block. Another is to the left of the powerblock. lift the guts from the back and pull the system out. looking at the right side, plug the reset Eject ribbon into the 2nd connector from the front. Then put it all back together carefully.

Hi Sammy,

You have a connection problem in the Reset Eject circuit.

I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the Reset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Check to be sure the ribbon cable coming from the reset/eject cable is fully inserted in the second connector from the front.
If this is not the case, you may want to check out . This could be a circuit problem and may need technical knowledge to gain repair.

Nah, its not a problem with the fuses ....

Hi banerjen, SInce your already into the unit, I know i give you some tips earlier. You may have a problem with the Reset/Eject Buttons. if the cable is connected, and you press them and nothing happens, We need to start looking at that. If the Red/Green led is not lighting, then someting could be wrong with the ribbon cable. Stay in touch, We will get there. I do not think it is a chip problem. Chip Problems usually are the LSER is not moving, or the DISC is not spining , or the CD tray is not opening.

Eject/reset cable

You need to use a pair of needle nose pliers and grip the ribbon cable by the stiff plastic strip and plug it into the second connector from the front that I believe is White. These connectors are near where the Reset Eject button locates. Check out my website
