Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
When i put a game in the disk does not start up. Any ideas where to start? We found a small black piece of plastic on the floor. I took the unit apart and cannot find anywhere that it looks like it may have broken off of the playstation. IT is a PS2 slim.
Chances are the tab from the top of the door of your console has broken off. It is a very simple problem to fix. It is either the one at the front just behind the power/reset button or the one at the back just behind the little tab that holds your disc in place and stops it from spinning while your door is open. Open up your console... there are three small holes at the front... two are at the very front and one is on the right side and a bit smaller that is one of the ones that may be missing a tab. Look at the underside of the door... is there a tab directly above that hole if so then it is not that one, if it is not there, simply glue it back on or use something small and about have the size of the two tabs at the front to synthesize it. If it is there look at the back behind the thing that stops your disc from spinning and see if the tab on the top is missing from there and if it is do the same for if it was missing from the front only make it twice as long as the tabs in front. Hope this helped
