Re: my old playstation 2
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

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: http://ebookpedia.net/The-Powerful-Playstation-2-Repair-Guide.html hope this helps :D please rate solution
Sir,you are dine with your lens...............you should consider seriously changing your ps2 lens.........take it to Sony outlet ask 'em abt it............it would cost you a bit but after that your ps2 will start working perfectly...............just like the new one.................before you go for changing ps2 lens i would recommend you to clean your ps2's lens by any lens cleanning disc or do it your self (you will only need a screw diver for it).........clean the lens by opening your ps2's disc cover and clean it with cotton or any other soft and clean piece of paper.........thank you.........!!!
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
try cleaning the lens with a Q-tip and a little bit of rubbing alcohol (not dripping). lightly touch the Q-tip to the lens and TWIRL it. use the other end of the Q-tip to dry it. or get a laser lens cleaner, specifically designed for video game systems.
for a fat PS2 go here and go to the very end.
hope this helps :D
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!!
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

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.
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.
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).
