I finally got my first PS2 yesterday. I bought it off of eBay for fairly cheap. It was listed as "As-Is" because it had a Disc Read Error. So, in an effort to teach myself how this little console works, I bought it. Anyway, as soon as I received the console yesterday, I removed the screws which hold the top of the casing. Then, I opened it up. Finally, I removed the actual CD tray. Boy, that was dumb!!!! Though I haven't gone any further, does anyone know how I can reconnect all of the loose ribbons? I know it's push/pull technology, but my chubby fingers can't get to those little spaces. Thanks!
