Does the light come on?  I am assuming you do not get anything on the TV screen.  How did the Ribbon get a hole in it? 

Get parts for the PS2 reasonable from Ebay.I do not want to venture a guess wihtout more info.

 

Repair charges for a PS2 Slim at the Playstation Clinic range from $25 to $75, where if it needs more work than $75 can repair, it is totaled.  www.Playstationclinic.com

Hi my ps2 slim wont turn disc,laser work up and down,i replaced motor with new one but i still have same problem


Make sure there aren't any problems with any of the ribbon cables. Make sure they're clipped down properly. It sounds like your drive isn't getting any power.

PS2 Slim New Lens, Not Spinning


Hi guys,
Well, there is 2 switch. one at  the back left of the cd tray and one one the reset /power switch. both sitch have to be close in order for the disk to spin. 
If you try this dont forget to put a disk on the spindle as you will start the laser. this is for your safety. then, if the disk does not spin, then you can try replacing the laser. or at least verify the ribbon cable that is hook to it. if the ribbon cable is not well inside the plug the laser might move but again the disk won t spin.
it is related to each other, the PS2 seem to verify the laser prior to start the spindle so what ever happend to the laser affect the spindle.
and then, if you buy a new laser lens, don't forget to remove the soldering bridge. it is a small ball that is use to avoid static while shiping the lens. 
most of the seller will include a small peace of paper with procedure and also there is web site with picture of this soldering bridge.
I replace some of them, and I have to say that the small plastic lock for the ribbon  cable to the lens has been an issue and the soldering bridge another one.
but I got most of the PS2 back and running by replacing the laser.
I hope this will help you.

PS2 Slim wont turn on


You might try a friends ps2 power supply of the same type to make shure it isnt the ps2 that is broken. If the friends power supply works, get a working one from ebay or something.

How to attatch 7" Pelican Game Glass to slim Ps2


Slim PS2s have to holes on back left and right. The far edges one lower right hand side of the power plug and another on the upper left side of the fan exhaust. Hard not to notice. I've never actually noticed they were screw holes I figured they were just... holes. Hope this helps.

Disc wont work


Hi AdalVI,

Your PS2 probably has a dirty laser lens. Below is a procedure for cleaning the lens on the big PS2. It does not work on the Slim PS2. Do not ever use alcohol on a slim PS2 laser lens.

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. Remove the CD tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the CD area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. Remove the little white disc from the CD tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and you’re in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to a Repair shop. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. then choose "Video Game Consoles". Then you pick a Good Repair shop. My shop is listed, but I cannot divulge the name in this forum. Cost will be $25 plus shipping. Shipping is usually $8.95 to the USA

Hi Jaybs,

The disc will not spin if the laser canot read the disc. you may have a dead laser or bad ribbon cable that runs from the Laser to the motherboard. I am posting a procedure to clean the lasers lens. I hope you do not have the Slim model, as this procedure is for the older Big size PS2. You do not use Alcohol on the lens of a Slim PS2 ,it tends to haze over the lens.
