Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

Playstation 2. CD reader tray open.

Hello team, I had a problem with my PlayStation 2. My kids dropped the PS2 and as a result we are not able to put again the reader inside the PS2. It seems that something inside the PS2 is in the way of the tray. I tried to open the PS2 and check where is the problem but, because of the tray is open I was not able to remove the top of the PS2. Any clue to do something myself?... Is it so complicated that is worthy to send the console to Sony?... Thanks a lot for any comment.

Well the way the kids dropped it probably caused it to brake or caused it to freeze to where it won't read the disc or any communications

I suggest that you take it back where you bought it if possible, because like you said if the tray wont close something inside the box was destroyed.

Ps2 (slim)

Well first off, make sure the disk if in PS1 OR PS2 format. That is what the PS2 Is requesting when it says "Please insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk. The Slim PS2 has various problems reading disk.(Don't Know why? I own it and Know it does). The Fat version(1st version) is a much better system, in my opionion. Try blowing air to clean the disk reader. Or changing the disk reader portion out, At a small price.

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.
