First, you need to be able to solder, ask your dad to help. You need to attatch the ribbon to the ribbon cable socket by soldering the metal together. Good luck.

Instal cartridges/new set-up epson S20


Move your cartridges to the left removal position by pushing the orange button (890/1280) or hold the paper feed button in (older printers). When the cartridges arrive at the removal position, PULL THE POWER PLUG FOR THE PRINTER OUT OF THE WALL AND DISCONNECT THE INTERFACE CABLE (USB OR PARALLEL).
Remove the cartridges and then continue with step 2.
The power must be disconnected so that any corrupt data stored in the printer does not get written to the new chips causing them to fail prematurely.
To get chip off. Use a single sided razor blade and remove excess plastic from the top post holding the chip in place. Don't touch the bottom post. (On a new virgin empty cartridge that has never had a chip on it, this step is not necessary.) Use a knife blade or thin screw driver blade to pry chip off of cartridge. topmenu8.jpg

 hi sir here is the solution : 1.   Move your cartridges to the left removal position by pushing the orange button (890/1280) or hold the paper feed button in (older printers). When the cartridges arrive at the removal position,PULL THE POWER PLUG FOR THE PRINTER OUT OF THE WALL AND DISCONNECT THE INTERFACE CABLE (USB OR PARALLEL).
Remove the cartridges and then continue with step 2.
The power must be disconnected so that any corrupt data stored in the printer does not get written to the new chips causing them to fail prematurely.
  2.   To get chip off. Use a single sided razor blade and remove excess plastic from the top post holding the chip in place. Don't touch the bottom post. (On a new virgin empty cartridge that has never had a chip on it, this step is not necessary.)   3.   Use a knife blade or thin screw driver blade to pry chip off of cartridge.   4.   Slide new chip on to lower post. Don't try to force it over the excess plastic on the lower post. Take advantage of the U channel in the chip. When it is captured, then press the chip onto the top post.   5.   If the chip is loose, remove it and then use a SMALL amount of super glue or equivalent on the back side of the chip to keep it in place. CAUTION... do not get any glue on the gold pads. If the chip snapped in place you will not need any glue.   6.   Re-install the cartridges in the printer. Slide the cartridges back to the far right by hand. ThenTURN ON THE PRINTER POWER and reconnect the interface cable.   WARNING:    DO NOT PUT A CARTRIDGE WITHOUT A CHIP ON IT INTO THE PRINTER - IT WILL CAUSE FATAL DAMAGE TO PRINTER !!!If you insert a cartridge that does not have a chip on it down into the cartridge holder, the small metal fingers that normally make contact with the chip will get caught inside the cavity for the chip. Then when you pull the cartridge out, these fingers will get bent and the printer will be ruined.DON'T DO THIS !! The symptoms of this being done, is a constant red light on the printer regardless of the chip condition. The contact fingers never touch the chip again.

The DVD tray doesnt eject


either it is the ribbon wire, the motor that ejects the tray or the belt that connect the tray and motor is the problem. In case the above three are fine, replace the drive as the sparking might kill your moterboard.

PS2 power ribbon


Hi Anishpp

If it came loose from the buttons, you need to remove the button holder to get to the connector. Push he ribbon into the slot on the back of the buttons.

If it came loose from the motherboard, you will have to remove the guts of the PS2 to see the connector under the cd drive right side. This is done by removing 4 screws. Two are on either side of your Controller ports. Another one is located between the fan and power block. Another is to the left of the powerblock. lift the guts from the back and pull the system out. looking at the right side, plug the reset Eject ribbon into the 2nd connector from the front. Then put it all back together carefully.

Hi Sammy,

You have a connection problem in the Reset Eject circuit.

I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the Reset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Check to be sure the ribbon cable coming from the reset/eject cable is fully inserted in the second connector from the front.
If this is not the case, you may want to check out www.playstationclinic.com . This could be a circuit problem and may need technical knowledge to gain repair.

Nah, its not a problem with the fuses ....


Hi banerjen, SInce your already into the unit, I know i give you some tips earlier. You may have a problem with the Reset/Eject Buttons. if the cable is connected, and you press them and nothing happens, We need to start looking at that. If the Red/Green led is not lighting, then someting could be wrong with the ribbon cable. Stay in touch, We will get there. I do not think it is a chip problem. Chip Problems usually are the LSER is not moving, or the DISC is not spining , or the CD tray is not opening.
