Re: no power light coming on just the fan starting up and...

1. check your power cord make sure its in all the way.
2.if that's not the case your ribbon cable running from your reset/eject button is wasted or has come unplugged. if you have to get a new one ordering one is all most impossible .. getting your hands on a junk one is better..(( NOT ALL PS2'S ARE THE SAME INSIDE)) some have a wide ribbon some have a thin one.. but ill post a vid showing ya where they go..
here is the link just copy it into your browser.

My door will not stay shut to play a game what is ps2 door was not opening so we thought we fixed it but now it wont stay shut . all lights are on just wont stay shut to even read/play any games...

the tray doesnt stay in. does your ps2 sit on its side where the tray is sideways, or is it straight up? i think you should try rotating it to a point where it should stay shut.

PS2 is on, but no signal

The tray has become misalligned. If you want to fix it on your own heres what you do. Remove the 6 (or 8 depending on generation) screws on the bottom. Remove the warranty sticker on the back by the power switch. With the front towards you, lift the top while tilting slightly toward the front and pivoting it by the power/eject buttons. Either remove the button assembly by popping it off the lid or just be careful not to tear the cable. Remove 4 philips screws from the cd mech lid and lift off. Remove two philips screws from the tray hinge. Lift and slide tray out of front. Push white gear frame at front of tray area to the right and hold it there while you put the tray back in. Reassembly is reverse of disassembly.

Ps2 cd tray does not open and the eject button light flashes

This is the tray getting stuck on the PS2 shell/casing. I can fix mine as it does the same thing but I tap it one quick time after I hit the eject button and it will usually open. Don't try to pry the tray open or this will make the problem worse.

I neeed hellppp???!!!!!

there are two switches that move your lens ,i have found that inside the tray right hand side in the front you will see a small opening that is the reset switch **this sets on top of the on button ***((it will wear down or can become damegd after prolonged use))),second is under the tray back left side **(TAN IN COLOR)**you cant see it unless you have opend the case ,if there is no contact with one or the other the lens will not slide to start the drive.Both have to be pressed to get the machine to start

My ps2 's tray just continues to spit out the loading tray!!!

You have to take it partially apart again. Remove the Cd tray. Look at the bottom of the tray and you will see a narrow track that runs the length and turns an L. The white piece that is between the laser drive and the cd tray motor has a white tit sticking up. When you put the tray back on, be sure the tit tracks into the track on the bottom of the CD tray.

PS2 disk tray keeps opening

try holding the disk drive after it closes for a few seconds and see if it stays closed or one of the drives gears could be stuck,loose,or might need to open it up.

PS2 disk tray problem

This has happened to me before. You will have to open the PS2 and clean the laser which is under the tray(or on top i forgot).
Use a cotton bud to clean it but be extreamaly careful cause if you put to much pressure on the laser your PS2 is gone for good!
