Been over a decade since I last used my PS2. I didn't replace it ever. It was working until I got my PS3 and stopped using the PS2. Sure sometimes it didn't work right away and needed to reboot the console. But I don't remember if it was this specific error (although I think it was).

I don't think I ever had a problem with the PS2 disc drive. PS1 and Xbox 360 are the only consoles I ever had disc drive issues (and multiple consoles at that)



I still have my PS2. It started to get disk read errors during 2006, mostly for DVDs, but for some games too,
I didn't pick up a new PS2 because I got myself a PS3 instead.



Still on my fat PS2, and no problems whatsoever yet



Had a PS2 slim from the get go, no dramas.

Don't worry I put my elite youtube step by step copying skills to good use and now it' s fixed, but I could do with your help with what to do with the twelve screws and 3 plastic cogs left over .

Snooze I lose I guess. Ya just a new tray was highly unlikely to fix anything. If the tray isn't opening then there's something jammed in there that shouldn't be, or loose/broken gears. I'd assume the easiest route would be to replace the entire disc drive instead of replacing any broken parts. Would be higher cost but also a much quicker and easier swap out.

Not sure whether to congratulate you or not. Dunno how it's working with so much out of place yet. Screws are one thing but leaving gears out is another. Unless they're the broken ones you replaced. Though if it ain't broke anymore, don't fix it, lol. 

the leftover pieces was only me having fun, it turned out to be the white slide at the front that moves left to right it has a knob that sits in a slot under the tray and can come out it seems to be common since the two videos i looked at with tray problems it turned out to be that problem

Ah. Ya I remember reading about that when I was researching what was likely wrong with mine. Though there they said it was more rare and tended to happen if you were often enough physically pushing the tray back in too hard/far. Not sure how true that is. 

Are you a tray pusher by chance? lol. I wasn't but my bro would when he was over excited or in a rush to game and I'd always give him heck about it if I caught it. Never had tray problems luckily. 

Either way good to hear you gotter all fixed up. Was worried I might have to, console you, over all the extra leftover parts. Congrats on a mission accomplished. Now, where's the trophy?...

Puns should only be used after you have run out of dad jokes, about the tray pushing no but I bought it second hand many years ago so it might have been owned by an inveterate tray pusher.
