    So... I opened up my Playstation 2 a while back. I cleaned out some dust and put everything back together. Games ran fine when it was open but, when I put it back together the drive gave me problems. I turn the power on for the PS2 and open the drive, I put a disc in and press the door eject button. The disc goes in and after about a second or two it come right back out. I tried without a disc and the same thing happens.

    maybe your disc tray is not locked. use the swap magic method to lock your disk tray back.

    could be that the clip that holds it shut has snapped or needs replacement now, or possibly something is in the way of it of going all the way in, try to open ur cd lazer drive case and see if anything is in there blocking it be sure to eject it after opening ur top of the ps2, then eject, then open the lazer drive to get the tray out of the way, be sure to check ur gears and such and if that doesnt work i would suggest having a friend who is good at modding and repairing or go get it repaired.
