One end connects to the eject/power bottons the other end goes in a slot under neith the laser.......there will be 3 or 4 others pluged in a row next to it......one for the laser one for the motor that moves the laser and one for the motor that opens and closes the door.......what ur trying to plug in is called a ribbin.......just look for a spot next to the outher ones that ar empty

How do i clean my playstation2 lens


if it's a slim, redesigned PS2, clean the laser lens with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol (not dripping).
lightly touch q-tip to the lens and gently twirl it.
use other end of q-tip to dry it, gently twirling it.

if it's a original fat PS2, go here:

My ps2 doesn't play games


Here's what I did to fix it - I took out all 8 screws on the bottom of the PS2, popped the case off, and then took out the 2 tiny screws for the DVD drive. After taking that case off, you can see the laser lens. All I did was clean it with an alcohol-soaked Q-tip, then buffed it clean, and after turning the game back on - it works fine! We're so pumped over here, and to anyone else having the problem, I bet this will fix it! Good luck

The guitar hero world tour does not play on my playstatin 2


We had the same problem with Guitar Hero World Tour for PS2. We have an older fat PS2 that would play all of our other games but this one. I tried changing the settings to fast/smooth, changed the diagnostics, still didn't work. Finally, I took The PS2 apart, blew out the dust,cleaned the laser lens with a qtip and rubbing alcohol, dried it gently with a dry q-tip, and the game works!!

My ps2 reads all other games except guitar hero world tour.


To all you guys having this problem with PS2 - I bought World Tour for my brother and put it in this morning. It worked the 1st time we put it on, but we restarted the game because both guitars weren't connected, and it would NOT work after that (we have an old fat PS2 by the way). After reading online, I found out this disc is a Dual Layered DVD, and can cause problems reading it

Here's what I did to fix it - I took out all 8 screws on the bottom of the PS2, popped the case off, and then took out the 2 tiny screws for the DVD drive. After taking that case off, you can see the laser lens. All I did was clean it with an alcohol-soaked Q-tip, then buffed it clean, and after turning the game back on - it works fine!

PS2 Cleaning


Hi kakashi654 Once you have access to the lens. If it is a Old version FAT PS2, use Q-tip and Rubbing alcohol. If it is the Slim or PSP models, use Windex with Qtip. Dry the lens with a dry Qtio Use a magnifying glass and light to be sure you have the lens clean.

My PS2 will not play my games


Hi Willhayes79, Test to see if the PS2 will read any Discs it is supposed to read. Try CD, CDR, PS1, PS2 Blue, PS2 silver, DVD. It might read something. To repair open the case, and clean everything in sight. Dust is your enemy. ?When you get to the lens, Use a Q-tip lightly damped with Rubbing Alcohol to swab the lens clean. Then dry it. You may have to completely disassemble the PS2 all the way to get all the dust. I believe Dust is shorting out your disc drive spindle. If your not comfortable with fully disassembling you playstation, Then go to WWW.playstationclinic.com and they may do a Cleaning and Tuning for $20 plus shipping.

My ps2 doesn't read the game. what should i do?


It likely needs a cleaning. A PROFESSIONAL cleaning, not a lens disc.... There isa a slim chance ther laser is dead, but it's more likely just the cleaning. Rates vary, but my shop charges about $56 for PS2 cleanings (we actually clean inside the optical assembly and mechanisms and reallign eveything back to spec).
