Seems to be a Burned out lens

Ok the two swithces ,,,im guessing the reset/eject button ... you cant push them both at the same time ... when you replaced the lens ..the ribbon cable that came out of it if you look real good there is a black or tan tab that lifts up and down to hold it in place if you dont have it back in place you wont have power to it same goes for where it plugs in to the the machine((the ribbon cable holder))because when you take the ribbon cable out the tab dosent lift up so when your putting it back in you wouldnt notice it..
look close youll see.

PS2 power ribbon Help!!!!!!

Use a pair of needle nose pliers and grip the connection end of the Ribbon cable by the hard plastic piece.  Insert this cable in the second connector from the front.  The connectors are located under the right edge of the CD drive.

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.

Playstation..2

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.

Eject/reset cable

You need to use a pair of needle nose pliers and grip the ribbon cable by the stiff plastic strip and plug it into the second connector from the front that I believe is White. These connectors are near where the Reset Eject button locates. Check out my website www.playstationclinic.com

Reset ribbon

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.
