wont turn onnonny Posted Dec 10, 2004
My Ps2 wont turn on after I tried to clean it.
Well I had a disc read error with every game and I went to a website to learn how to make it work. I took off the top to get to the lazer cleaned and the little silver tape stuff holding the top on kind of ripped, I dont know if that has anything to do with it, but when I put it back together to see if it worked,it wouldnt turn on at all. But I sprayed the laser with some bottled air and a little bit of c02 stuff came out but I dont think it did anything, but now it wont work even though I put it all back together. What should I do?
Hey I am having the same exact problem as you right now! And I have no idea how to fix it. I also think i messed up the silver stuff a little bit and don't even know wat the silver stuff is. Please e-mail me back if u figure it out that would mean a great deal to me!
I have no clue!!!! I'm having the same exact problem at this very moment and am trying to figure out why. I did the exact thing you did, my Ps2 wouldn't read games so i bought the "can of air" and took it apart to clean it and now it wont even turn on! E-mail me if you figure it out im myself am boggled!
I apologize for the fact that I didn't thoroughly read your second post. The silver data ribbon cable that feeds from the eject/reset button to the motherboard is attached by tape to the top cover. Why it is taped to the top cover I can't answer, but if this ribbon cable is pulled out or damaged, your PS2 will not turn on. Hope this answers your question and good luck.
There are about sixteen circuit protectors on the main circuit board. They are very small in size (about .25mm). I know the bottled air is recommended, but I use a Q-Tip lightly moistened with eyeglass lens cleaner. Usually disc read errors will require laser pickup replacement.
