Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
The game cd has jumped slightly out of the cd drive slot(thanks to the kids mucking around) and now we cant open the drive to proper place cd in position and or use the PS2. How do we open the drive to remove the CD and hopefully have a working PS, being a single mom (yes I know a girl and useless)I cant find any screw holes etc on the outside of the box to get the drive out
Hi Clookie, Sony hides its screws under little square screw covers. I use a knife to pry them up. Its not had to do at all. I am assuming you have the big PS2 system and not the slim. The rubber feet pop out as well to expose Screws. use a phillips Screwdriver to remove 8 or 10 screws depending on which model it is. Turn the PS2 over right side up. Using a razor blade, cut the warranty label at the seams where the case shell parts come together. the warranty label is located to the left of the power cord socket. You can now lift the top cover from the back side up about 1 or 2 inches. Pull the cover forward to clear the cd tray. Do not go far with the cover, it may have the reset buttons still attached. If the reset/eject buttons are attached, you need to keep the cover close to the console and roll it from left to right so that the cover rests upside down just to the right of the console. Using a very small phillips screw driver, remove the screws from the CD drive bay cover. If only two screws are holding it, you need a knife to poke in the rectangle slots at the rear of the cover for the cd drive. Pry outward to ge the catches to release. Now you should be able to get the CD back into position. Hope this helps... If you have worse trouble, Contact me at Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
