If you mean the Drive door won't open, it means your probably going to need to replace the motor for the drive. First check and see if there's anything obvious that's keeping the door shut, anything sticky or perhaps jammed into the opening. If that doesn't work, you'll have to open up the unit and check the drive for anything inside manually.

    Unplug it first, that all-important rule of safety, the turn it over and you should see the screws you'll need to remove. There are 8 screws, covered by little squares of rubber you'll need to remove with a flat head screwdriver in order to access the screws. Once those are out, flip the unit back over CAREFULLY and gently lift off the top. You'll have easy access to the drive now.

My ps2 joystick L3 button stuck when i derict it to any direction .. it suppose to back into its center position but it doesn't it stuck and still unmoved untill i move it back to its original pos


I would suggest buying a new controller if you want to skip the hassle of trying to fix this one, but if you insist on keeping this controller, then there could be a way to fix it. First try your best to smoothly trace the joystick around in a circle, and see if that unsticks it. If this doesn't work, apart from buying a new controller the only other thing to do would be to open the controller up and put lubricant on the bottom of the joystick, this will most likely work, but you might damage your controller in the process.

Ps2 disk tray


To me if you have the old fat PS2's then it sounds like the motors are worn out. You can't fix this unless it's still under warranty and call PlayStation. But if not under warranty, try to seel it to like a pawn shop or something to get cash and I recommend getting the slim PS2. The disc tray pops open like the PS1, and the only thing that can mess that up is it getting something spilled in it to make it sticky. I've had mine for about 5 years now and it hasn't messed up at all. But make sure not to play burnt discs on it or it will get used to them and not play regular discs. Hope this solves!

Old PS2 will read some games but not all


You can have the lens adjusted at a repair shop for not too much money, but be aware that if your lens is slipping out of alignment it's only a matter of time before it breaks completely. It may be time to replace your system with a PS3 or a new PS2.

Best of luck!

Ps2 not reading disc.


First you need to define what it IS and IS NOT reading. You'll need to run some tests.

Test 1: use a regular music CD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and put that into your ps2 and see if it starts playing it.

Test 2: insert a regular DVD (NON BURNED) (RETAIL) disk and try to play that.

If neither will play then it is one of two things. Your laser lens is out of alignment, or your laser lens is damaged.

If one plays but not the other, it is the potentiometer pots on the back of the PS2 lens that need adjusting. You can read more about that on one of my other posts ::.HERE.::

My Ps2 isnt reading disks!


Hi Emily, this is the ABSOLUTE fix to that problem. Put 1 piece of tape (2 pieces total) on each side of the hole thats in the center. The 2 pieces of tape should be parallel to each other and as close to the hole without touching it. Use regular clear "invisible" tape. If it does not work with just 1 piece, add another piece of tape directly on top of the other pieces to make it thicker. OR just use the sticky part of a post-it which is a little thicker than regular tape. I tried this the 1st time, & have not had any further problems for 6 years!
