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.
My first suggestion is to not purchase "used" electronics from eBay. I bought the same kind of unit from eBay... and mine is broken too. I got a cell phone, car stereo, and a remote.. they were all not working properly when I received them.
Did you try the restart button. It is a small, pin size button on the right-side of the unit near the 4-way select buttons. My player wouldn't eject a cd either, and when I pushed the restart button with a pin, the cd ejected and the unit was ok for playing cds... that's about it
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.
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.
Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
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.
Remove all the screws.
Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
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.
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.
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
