Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

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.

    IMPORTANT: The disc tray will not open while a disc is loading; this is normal operation. If this is the case, wait until the disc is finished loading before pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button to open the disc tray.

Green Light will not stay on when I close PS2 slim tray


That sounds like a damaged wire that may be grounding out when you close the tray. Do you have the larger (older) PS2 or the slim one?

PS2 Disk tray wont go in all the way


IF FOR SOME REASON THE TRAY DOES NOT OPEN, OR HALF-WAY OPENS FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING STEPS TO RE ALIGN IT.

STEP 1) TAKE THE COVER OFF, BY UNSCREWING IT FROM THE BOTTOM.

STEP 2) NOW TAKE OFF THE 4 SMALL SCREWS ON TOP OF THE CD ASSEMBLY, ONCE YOU TAKE THEM OFF THE TOP SHOULD COME OFF EASILY.

STEP 3 ) YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE SPINDLE AND THE LASER NOW. BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE TURN THE PS2 ON AND HIT THE POWER BUTTON. ONCE YOU HIT THE POWER BUTTON THE SPINDLE SHOULD SPIN AND THE LASER SHOULD MOVE FOWARD AND BACKWARDS AND ALSO UP AND DOWN. IF ALL THIS HAPPENS THEN YOUR PROBLEM PROBABLY IS THE TRAY IF ONE OF THOSE THINGS DON'T MOVE THEN THATS PROBABLY YOUR PROBLEM. NOW HIT THE REST BUTTON AND SEE WHAT HAPPEN

STEP 4) IF THE TRAY IS MISALIGNED, LOOK TOWARDS THE FRONT LEFT SIDE OF THE TRAY YOU WIL SEE TWO SCREWS, TAKE THOSE OFF SO YOU CAN TAKE THE TRAY OFF.

STEP 5) ONCE THE SCREWS ARE OFF, LIFT THAT SIDE AT ABOUT A 45 DEGREE ANGLE AND PUL THE TRAY OUT.

STEP 6) BEFORE WE TRY TO REALIGN IT TURN THE POWER BACK ON AND HIT THE EJECT BUTTON, WE JUST WANT TO PROVE ALL THE GEARS AND THE MOTORS ARE WORKING. IF THEY DO MOVE THEN THE ONLY THING NEEDED IS THE REALIGNMENT. IF THE GEARS DON'T MOVE YOU PROBABALY HAVE A BAD MOTOR OR A GEAR MIGHT BE BAD

STEP 7) NOW TO REALIGN IT. MAKE SURE THE CD TRAY SLIDE, THE WHITE PIECE, IS ALL THE WAY TO THE LEFT.

STEP 8) WE ARE GOING TO SLIDE THE TRAY ALL THE WAY IN, BUT MAKE SURE ITS DONE IN A 45 DEGREE ANGLE AND THAT THE TRAY IS ONLY CONNECTED TO THE RIGHT. ONCE ITS IN ALL THE WAY LOWER THE TRAY TO THE LEFT SIDE. IF IT HITS THE PIECE IN THE BACK-LEFT PULL IT A BIT FORWARD. IT SHOULD FALL IN EASILY. NOW TURN THE PS2 ON AGAIN AND EJECT THE TRAY, HOPEFULLY IT OPENS ALL THE WAY. IF IT DIDN'T START AT STEP 5 AND START AGAIN. SOMETIMES IT TAKES 2 OR 3 TIMES TO GET IT INTO THE RIGHT PLACE.

Disk wont spin


Your, dvd playing in your ps2, may be malfunctioning, your best bet is buying a ps2 dvd player, taking the old one out, and putting the new one in, and I guarantee that that will help you continue on your massive killing rampage on vice city.

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!
