Ps2 disk tray wont open, power light is on, eject light is off

I was told to clean the lense of my ps2, just bought it today. so i opened it and the ribbon came out. i didnt know where it went, so i took the tray out. knowing that was not needed to plug the ribbon back in, i tried putting the disk tray back and put everything back together. now only the red light shows, and nothing else. can somebody tell me whats going on? thanks.

    I crimped the ribbon cable slightly after opening my PS2 console to clean the lens, is this small crimp enough to damage the blue eject button will never work again? Or do I still have a possibility that it might just be loose. When I press on the Eject button where the Blue light should be…the blue light stays off however it turns the RED light into Green of the Reset button and the Fan starts spinning, but that's all that happens it stays that way and nothing else, the tray doesn’t open. any suggestions?

If the ribbon cable that goes to the lens came out its gota go back it. has a plastic tab on the top that lifts up and down to lock it in place....
If its the eject/reset button the ribbon might not be in all the way

Disk drive door wont open. LED light comes on an hums, but tray wont eject to open. Where is manual eject hole located?


Below the drive tray there is a tiny hole, straighten a paper clip and gently insert the paper clip into this hole. Push the paper clip and the tray will release and pop out, then pull the tray out to the fully open position.

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.

All of the sudden my console will not load my rock band2 cd .it will play in other consoles and most of my other games load just fine the cd isnt scratched that i can see


When your PS2 starts getting finicky about what and when it plays, it's probably time to clean the laser lense. A relatively easy fix. MAKE SURE THAT THE POWER IS OFF AND THAT THE CORD IS UNPLUGGED! Take the screws off the bottom of the unit, open the casing carefully. Making sure not to pull on any of the ribbon conduits. Once opened, the DVD tray is now exposed. Take the 4 screws off of the top of it and clean the laser gently with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Reassemble and try it out. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Good luck!

When i put the game in it says reading then just says open tray and wont read. it used to read after a few try but now it wont work no matter how many trys


Most likely it is your laser lense is dirty. Crack the case get in to the DVD drive open it. While in there give it a general cleaning then clean the laser lense with glass cleaner and a q-tip. Three other things to check. There are three motors in there one slides the tray in and out when you hit the eject button (small hole lower left of metal box under drive) another moves the laser when the tray moves back in you should see the laser move slightly and the lense bob up and down and light up, third is the spinner motor put and disc in the tray and close the tray the disc should spin up if it doesn't then the motor is bad. If all these things have work ok put it back together and test it out.

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.
