I think I know what happened, when the PS2 hit the ground, it may have detached the internal module that allows you to connect to the TV namely the modulator board or the RCA jacks. The circuit board may even have been cracked. Ok first I am assuming that you are under 18, and if you are there is no way I am going to tell you to open up a piece of electronic equipment to affect repairs on it. Now if you are into electronic repairs or learning electronics I would tell you to open up the unit look for the damaged area, draw out the traces that seem to be broken and jumper them, the problem is PS2 and other gaming syatems use a multi-layed board so some of the traces might be internal to the board itself. So what I'll say to you is open up the unit and if there is too much damage take the unit to an authorized electronics shop that specializes in game consoles and have them repair or replace the circuit board. I hope this helps.

The tray has become misalligned. If you want to fix it on your own heres what you do. Remove the 6 (or 8 depending on generation) screws on the bottom. Remove the warranty sticker on the back by the power switch. With the front towards you, lift the top while tilting slightly toward the front and pivoting it by the power/eject buttons. Either remove the button assembly by popping it off the lid or just be careful not to tear the cable. Remove 4 philips screws from the cd mech lid and lift off. Remove two philips screws from the tray hinge. Lift and slide tray out of front. Push white gear frame at front of tray area to the right and hold it there while you put the tray back in. Reassembly is reverse of disassembly.

My PS2 has stopped working!!!


spindle motor went bad it sounds like. Open up the ps2 and inside of there, you'll see a ribbon for the drive, take it off of the board and then reseat it.

Now put the top back on and try the drive again. If it still doesn't spin then the drive will need to be replaced.

Cant play new guitar hero Metallica.....need help please!


Ok, heres what you do.

(with the ps2 slim, this will work, I'm not sure with the fat but here you are)

Turn it on with the disc in it.
Turn the ps2 horizontly with the front facing you.
Whenever you hear a tick (only for fat) tap it against you knee a few times until you hear it spinning.

I first figured this out when I was frustrated. The ticks should be in groups of two. I just taped it on my knee, then I heard it spinning, and now I know I didn't waste my money on GH metallica and world tour.

My ps2 has a problem reading certain games but works with others


The PS2 has always had trouble with certain discs. And yes you can often tell by the "color". RE4 although from ancient was pre PS3 and basically some of the newer games wont work on the "old" PS2's as well. Partially due to the fact they are a bit dirtier and worn out and cant read the faster speeds as well. You might want to consider purchasing a "new" PS2 ($99) that wont have the same problem.

PS2 was dropped, now disc won't spin and can't be read.


I just looked at a friend's PS2. Same story, tripped over cord, unit fell to floor. Unit powers up and sys. config. screen comes on but the drive didn't seem to be spinning up. Opened the case and found that the shaft of the drive motor for the laser tray had popped out of it's centering retainer ( little black bushing/holder). With the top off the unit, looking at the unit from the front, on the right side in the rear corner you'll see the motor. The worm shaft (bronze colored rod) runs towards the front of the unit. Where it ends it should sit centered in a black plastic holder, if it's off to the side a little pressure will pop it back in. Put the cover back on, and power it up, you should hear the drive spinning up. If it does you should be set. Hope this helps.

My 60 GB PS3 wont run PS2 games


Actually only 60GB PS3s supports PS2 games. But It requires particular firmware. In first instance try updating your system, then dissable the disc autoload function, insert PS2 game, and look at the game section if your soft will recognise it. If yes just try to play

Good luck
