You were taking apart the ps2 since this is the fat ps2 im supposed to think first since your in the ps2 clean out the dust in it for future problems dust is why people keep throwing out fat ps2s and buying small ones they think its broke but its rather a dust problem clean it out the pute all the bolts in the right place if you dont have certain bolts in the ps2 doesnt start so have all the bolts in if its a ps2 slim try to unbolt all of the top and slide the lift thing in there scould be a little place in the top to just pop it in or bolt it in.... that could be a problem with the ribbon slide it back into the slot hopefully it still works the ribbon is really impotant its like a conector of the top and bottom part of the ps2 if all else fails get a repairman there are youssally reapair people at your local game place bestbuy, eb, gamestop ect.

A disk read error occured press ctrl+alt+del to restart...how to fix it?


This is not a good error but there are two things you can try.
1. Physically remove the hard drive from your computer then reseat/reconnect it. This will ensure it is connected securely. 2. Physically remove the hard drive, attach it to another computer (either internally or with a USB adapter) and run a CHKDSK. Once completed, put the drive back in your computer and boot it up.
There is a slim chance this will fix your issue, but honestly you probably have a dead drive. I hope you backed up.

The console fell off the draw and just reads disc error


it may have damaged your laser. but if you feel like opening it up, turn ps2 upside down and take the screws out(9 or 10). turn ps2 right side up, take the cover off. be exrta carefull with the reset ribbon(leave it attached) to your right(facing like you were installing a disc) is the disc unit( you will need a small phillips head screw driver) take the cover off of that( 4 screws) gently push laser head away from you toward the center. before you put your covers back on see if you have any ribbons that may be loose or completly detatched, put the cover back on laser unit and try it ( before you put the main cover back on. good luck, hope this helps

Error / Ribbon Jam/Broken


When you open and close the lid on this printer, it tries to realign the ribbon. If you are getting this error, I suggestion you Calibrate the print ribbon through the print driver printing preferences on the Calibrate tab.

Remove the base by taking out the five screws. Look for the ribbon cable on the left hand side. On each side of the cable is a little brown nub, pull away from the circuit board to release the tension. Pull the ribbon cable out, this will reset the circuit board. Put the ribbon cable back in and push the nubs towards the circuit board. This will add tension to the connection. Put the base back together using the 5 screws. Plug in your phone and you should be set.

Disk Error...Grinding sound when i put it in


I think you will also have trouble with reading Audio CDs. This is s sign that your Laser is dirty. The following procedure is for the older Big PS2. It will not work for the Slim PS2 model. Do not ever use Alcohol on the Slim models Laser Lens.

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 you’re in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to a Repair shop. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. then choose "Video Game Consoles". Then you pick a Good Repair shop. My shop is listed, but I cannot divulge the name in this forum. Cost will be $25 plus shipping. Shipping is usually $8.95 to the USA

Erroe Code : 0400001F


This error code is very hard to fix. You may end up having to send it back to Olympus or buy a new one. But here's a few things to try and you may get lucky. Connect the remote, power on the player and hold down the heart, mode and play buttons on the remote at the same time. This re-sets the player. If this doesn't work, remove the back cover. There are 4 small screws that hold the back plate on. Once the cover is removed, unplug the battery. Plug it back in after 30 seconds. The player should re-boot. You can also try disconnecting the hard drive and reconnecting it. Unplug the battery before disconnecting the hard drive. If none of these suggestions work, you may be out of luck. i know of no other ways to fix this error code.

Reading and bad disk


You can press the eject button on the drive behind the front panel or connect the ribbon cable from the drive to a PC to eject it. More instructions are on my website here: www.drx9000repair.netfirms.com/
