The disk tray wont stay closed the open/close button flashes and opens again.

It seems there might be something jamming your disc drive from completely going in, or your disc drive has fallen off the track and might need to be realigned.

Dvd player will not eject or play dvd. It just keeps spinning and says "reading." I've tried unplugging for 2 minutes, pushing close/open and stop at the same time(hold for at least 3 seconds)....

Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray. Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.6 Jan 2013

Ps2 cd tray does not open and the eject button light flashes

This is the tray getting stuck on the PS2 shell/casing. I can fix mine as it does the same thing but I tap it one quick time after I hit the eject button and it will usually open. Don't try to pry the tray open or this will make the problem worse.

Disc won't eject & stops working

your disc tray is jamming on an intermittent fault and when it does work it is recording each time the eject botton is being pressed so when your watching movies or playing games it tries to eject the disc tray and causes an automatic shutdown it will definately neet proffesionally repaired and should cost about 30-40 pounds and get a guarantee with it bacause these faults can come back to haunt you.

Disc tray???

Did you recently open the ps2/modify it?

Found this which may help (and will void your warrenty):

When you take the top cover off of the PS2, you can see where the Reset/Eject ribbon cable plugs into the system itself. Right next to and slightly below here are three wires with three tiny color-coded plug-ins attached. They are just pressed into place and have a tendency to work themselves out over time. And depending on which one came undone, the disc tray will either always want to stay closed or always want to stay open. Either way, the operation of the disc tray will be erratic and problematic.

So it's a matter of using a pair of needle-nosed pliers to grasp and make sure that all three of these tiny plug-ins are fully inserted into the slots where they belong. Sometimes it's even necessary to very slightly lift the PS2 out of the bottom half of it's shell to gain better access to them. After they're all clearly in place, then it's a good idea to use the same needle-nosed pliers to make sure that the ribbon cable did not slightly pull out of place from where it is plugged in as well, or the Reset/Eject buttons will not work.

After all this, you can put the PS2 back together and should be good to go!

Disc Tray

The rubber band inside your PS2 might be broken, the rubber band supports the disc tray and it ejects and inserts the tray.

Sometimes if play too much long, some of the PS2 parts will be damaged by excessive heat, so my advice is that your minimum gameplay time must be 3-4 hours only.

Please den't even try forcing the tray to open, it will be more damaged.

Try resting your PS2 for about 1-2 days, after that try to open the tray, if the problem still persist bring to a PS2 fixer near you.

PS2 disk tray problem

This has happened to me before. You will have to open the PS2 and clean the laser which is under the tray(or on top i forgot).
Use a cotton bud to clean it but be extreamaly careful cause if you put to much pressure on the laser your PS2 is gone for good!
