I was swapping the cover for my fat ps2 to a new flip top cover and accidently pulled the silver cable that controls the reset/eject function out of the unit. It is not broke, it just looked like it pulled out from where is was.... I need help putting it back in.....
if you'll check the disc tray side you'll see a white slot where the ribbonwire should connect you'll also find some connectors colored pink green and white if you'll look thoroughly it is located beside those connectors

There are a few options that I know of, all of which include phsyically modding the console.
As far as I know, there's no softmod for any playstation product (other than the PSP). You'll have to either add a mod chip (which usually involves desoldering the original CPU and soldering the mod chip into place) or get a flip top (if it's a fat PS2). The flip top version is easier, as you're just replacing the top of the outer shell.
This is a fat PS2 I assume. The drive tray has come off of it's track.
You will need to open up the PS2 and remove the inner cover of the DVD drive. With slow and even pressure you will need to twist the drive tray so that it pops back into place.
The tray is surprisingly flexible and you should have little trouble getting it back into place. I've done this several times with my own machines as well as others.
The number one obstacle that you will face is to not break off the wires to the power and eject buttons. When you remove the top half of the shell you should flip it toward the front of the machine then swing it around so that the wires will have slack.
That same thing happened to me. I disassembled the ps2 to find out the problem, I found out. If your console does not turn on or no lights check the silver ribbin connected to the reset button. See If it is in all the way the top and the bottom of the ribbin or check to see if there are any tares in it if there is replace it . You can get good parts off of Ebay.
Use a pair of needle nose pliers and grip the connection end of the Ribbon cable by the hard plastic piece. Insert this cable in the second connector from the front. The connectors are located under the right edge of the CD drive.
If it came loose from the buttons, you need to remove the button holder to get to the connector. Push he ribbon into the slot on the back of the buttons.
If it came loose from the motherboard, you will have to remove the guts of the PS2 to see the connector under the cd drive right side. This is done by removing 4 screws. Two are on either side of your Controller ports. Another one is located between the fan and power block. Another is to the left of the powerblock. lift the guts from the back and pull the system out. looking at the right side, plug the reset Eject ribbon into the 2nd connector from the front. Then put it all back together carefully.
