    I opened up my PS2, I just looked at the board and closed everything back up. I don't think anything broke and I put it back just like it was. After putting it back together, I was not able to open the damn cd drive. I know the button works, cause when I pressed it, it would go red and the power would go on.

    I have no idea what to do, anyone have any ideas? or has anyone had this happen to them and had to take it someplace to get fixed? if so, how much was it to get fixed? Thanks in advance....

    Maybe your Ribbon cable is not making connection on all the pins now. You may have pulled it out slightly.

    Does it make any noise when you press the disk eject button? Does the blue light function?

    Take the top cover off and lay it to the side.
    You should now be able to just barely get to the tab with needle nose pliers and see if it is seated.

    If not look at the other ribbon cables going to the drive. If you removed the board one of these may be the problem. You may have just overlooked one when you put it back together.

    I'm getting this problem too, i checked the belt and and pins. It seems as if everything is working fine, but my drive wont eject. I can open it using a paper clip and then close it using the button, but it just wont open. anyone know what to do? im trying not to junk it too

    there is always a cheap $20 solution... install a fliptop even if u currently use a modchip. you'll have to load the games from the top... but it's an easy solution.
