Hi Kakashi654, Remove the Eject/Power Button assembly from the top case cover. Using a pair of needle nose Pliers, Grip the stiff plastic piece at the end of the ribbon with the connections strips facing up. Insert in the White socket that is visible under the Cd drive on the Right side of the console. It is the same area that the other ribbon strips are plugged in on the Right side of the PS2. Hope this helps. www.playstationclinic.com

Disc tray???


Did you recently open the ps2/modify it?

Found this which may help (and will void your warrenty):

When you take the top cover off of the PS2, you can see where the Reset/Eject ribbon cable plugs into the system itself. Right next to and slightly below here are three wires with three tiny color-coded plug-ins attached. They are just pressed into place and have a tendency to work themselves out over time. And depending on which one came undone, the disc tray will either always want to stay closed or always want to stay open. Either way, the operation of the disc tray will be erratic and problematic.

So it's a matter of using a pair of needle-nosed pliers to grasp and make sure that all three of these tiny plug-ins are fully inserted into the slots where they belong. Sometimes it's even necessary to very slightly lift the PS2 out of the bottom half of it's shell to gain better access to them. After they're all clearly in place, then it's a good idea to use the same needle-nosed pliers to make sure that the ribbon cable did not slightly pull out of place from where it is plugged in as well, or the Reset/Eject buttons will not work.

After all this, you can put the PS2 back together and voila...you should be good to go!

My PS2 will not play PS2 games, but it will play PS1 games


Hi
If it will play DVD's this is a good sign. You will only need to clean the lens of the laser. Also clean the hub that the Disc rides on.
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. Remove the Cd tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the Cd area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. REmove the little white disc from the Cd tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and your in business.

PS2 power ribbon Help!!!!!!


Use a pair of needle nose pliers and grip the connection end of the Ribbon cable by the hard plastic piece.  Insert this cable in the second connector from the front.  The connectors are located under the right edge of the CD drive.

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.

  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.

  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 www.playstationclinic.com . This could be a circuit problem and may need technical knowledge to gain repair.
