There may not be a way to do that without voiding the warranty. Here's something to try. The warranty strip will be torn if you remove the cover. What I'd like you to try is to remove all the screws (6-8 depending on model) and then trying to eject. Maybe during the fall something pinched the tray a...

Try the solution in the first post. If that doesn't work, try tweaking the lens. If that doesn't work, you may need a new lens. Hope the info helps.

This is usually due to a bad lens. There are two possible fixes.
  1. Tweak the lens. It may work after.
  2. Buy a new lens.
Sorry, but that's the way it is. Hope the info helps.

Maybe the connector for the fan is shot. Use a tester and check the solder points to see if they're good. You may also try either another fan, or soldering the existing fan directly to the board. Be warned, that if you solder the fan to the board, there may be no way of connecting it otherwise. Hope...

Probably the lens is gone, or going bad. You need to try tweaking the lens. David has a blog with how it's done. By the sounds of it, the lens is shot, and will only read PS1 and CD based PS2 games. If all else fails then you'll need a new lens. If you carry it back to a store, ask the person to try...

It may not be a fuse. It could be the cable put in wrong. If it's put in upside-down it wont work at all. If there's any fuse blown, most likely is the power supply fuse. If you've used a tester/meter before, use it and try and find where the power is not going to. Do not do this if you have no elec...

The laser could be damaged. If it doesn't read AUDIO CDs or DVD MOVIES then you know it's bad. Go to the browser and insert a disk and post your results please.

Buttons fell off? Meaning the white buttons on the small circuit board? Or the black buttons that go to the front of the PS2? If it's the white buttons you'll have to solder them back. If it's the black buttons, they're normally screwed into place. If they're broken a little crazy glue may do the tr...

Mine had stopped working as well. I found it to be the leads to the fan, and not the fan itself. I soldered the fan cable directly to the pin-outs on the board, and it worked. Try that and see what happens. The pin-outs are small, so be careful. Also, please be warned that if you solder the fan dire...

I'd probably agree with ADY. Try another movie, or some DVD-based PS2 games to check if the lens is ok. Check the movie disk for smudges and scratches or warping.

If your PS2 is only reading CD based games (PS1 and CD based PS2 games) then your lens is probably going bad. If you tweak it and it doesn't help, it's definately the lens. If the lens is scratching the disk, then it could be that the lens is too close to the disk, or maybe that the spindle top (&qu...

Then it looks like either the cable, or the little board with the reset/eject button is damaged. If you have another PS2 that you can use, you could try swapping those parts and see what happens. Hmm.....maybe one of the wires in the ribbon cable got burnt. If you can't get another to test, then may...

Could also be that the ribbon-cable is connected the wrong way (upside-down). If that is the case, you wouldn't get any standy red light when you power on the switch at the back. Check that and post your results. Hope the info provided by everyone was helpful.

Assuming you mean PS2 and not PSP2. PS2 - Playstation 2 | PSP = Playstation Portable. Is the console chipped? When did the problem arise? Have you tried the games in another console? Will the console play AUDIO CD's and DVD MOVIES? When playing either of those, does it skip or hitch in any way? Plea...

Remove the chip and try again. If it works without the chip, then you're having an oncompatability problem. Also, with the no-solder chip you need to "flash" the "bios" of the chip. Granted if the chip is not "flashed" then it wouldn't work at all, but just so you know ...
