HELP! PS2 Fat

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.....

Don't worry that one is easy

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

I want to play duplicate dvds on my ps2 but i am not able to do what should i do can i do it at home


  1. If you have backed up a game for ps2, you're going to need a mod chip or swap magic for your ps2 so it can read the disc, so first things first, BUY A MODIFICATION TOOL!!!
  2. 2You should try using Swap Magic, because it's the easiest, and you won't need to modify your PlayStation too much.
  3. 3But if you use SWAP MAGIC, you will also need a special mod chip, SLIDE TOOL, or a FLIP TOP COVER, you can learn more about those on the swapmagic website
  4. 4Read directions on the installation of mod chip, and swap magic before you do anything (you don't want to mess up, or else your ps2 won't work properly).
  5. 5Install your modchip/flip top cover/slide tool. (This is important, because it allows the disc to be removed and "swapped" without the PlayStation knowing).
  6. 6Follow directions that came with your swap magic discs, and you're basically ready to go!
  7. 7HOW TO USE SWAP MAGIC,Note you must have Swap magic 3.6 to boot on slimline ps2 and you need to do a none solder modding(no soldering)

Purchase a flip top (recommended). Let's assume you have the flip top and a copied ps2 game
  1. 1Now Insert the swap magic disc into the ps2,
  2. 2Press power on button until screens comes up.
    • With option that says load cd open the top cover of the flip top.
    • And take out the cd when it stops spinning.
  3. 3Now insert your Copied game and click Load CD.
  4. 4its that easy

How can i unlock my ps2 to play download


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.

''the wide strip connecting from the inside cover of the ps2 came out where does it go'' Problem


is it silver? does your system turn on? if not, that 'wide strip' powers your PS2. if you have a fat PS2, go here and go to the very end. hope this helps. www.powerfulguides.com/ps2

My playstation doenst work iam not able to close the door properly since it feel down


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.

Black screen, no disc spin or eject, fan spins


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.

PS2 power ribbon Help!!!!!!


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.

PS2 power ribbon


Hi Anishpp

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.
