Ok so I've done a complete overhaul on the old ps2's just not so familiar with the slims. My girlfriends kid spilled milk on mine and I want to clean it out and use it as an experiment sort of a Frankenstein PS2. Problem is how do you get the cover off of it without snapping the cover in half?

You might need a new DVD drive too. Sounds like you need expert help, i had sent my PS3 to videogame911.com after i attempted to work on it my self and they repair everything, even saved my data. Got it back within the week and at a very reasonable price. Hope this helps you.
Fat and Slim PS2's generally have different playability with disks. a slim, for example, does not want to play old blue-backed disks, though it will easily read PSX black backs.
I'll need more information on the disk and the PS2 to give a complete answer.
well uhmmmmm maybe its both ps2 and gta:sa i dont own a ps2 slim anymore but it worked with mine old one fine go to a gamestop technitian and ask him about your problem bring you games in and he could test it out
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!
It could be the power cord, but it could also be the connection where the cable connects to the system. The cheapest fix would be to try a new power cord. If it's the slim PS2 then it's only about a $15 fix. If it's the large older PS2, then it's more like a $5 fix for a cord.
blingbdog, do you have the slim or the old large system? Also, let me know if the warranty is still valid (have you had the console for more than 1 year).
Yes this port be changed out on a slim like the fatter PS2 version it is a complicated work and should be done by an expert technician only otherwise the tracks on motherboard will be spoiled. One thing be sure before changing the port you check it if this port is physically damaged then only you can proceed otherwise you please compare the working voltages on all pins with your port 2 and sort out the fault because sometimes +5v supply missing or any diodes connected on port is short which can be the reason for this fault.
