    Ok, if you need I can post pics. The cable on the bottom goes to the laser. the ones from the CD tray go on the side where the reset/eject button cable goes. Hope it helps. I will post pics if needed.

    I will post pictures tomorrow morning. By the way, What is the model number of your PS2 (SCPH-xxxxx) This way I can be sure that I am giving you the right information. Different PS2's have different internal locations for things.

    I'm not sure, I don't see the number on it anywhere. I don't think I have the original top of the case anymore either. It is really really old though. I'd say at least 4 years

    alright I got the some of them back in, but do you know where the one directly under the front of the cd tray opening goes? It's the wide one with the blue end

    Are the cables in this picture in tightly? You might want to take a flat head screwdriver and push the wires in by putting the screwdriver in between the blue part and the wire and pushing it in carefully but securly

    Also, is the cable to the laser in tightly? And does it light up when u turn it on for a second?

    The cable that goes to the laser is above the black piece that holds it in place.

    okay, it came on once and started loading a game. Never got past the loading screen so I reset. Then it gave me the DRE

    If it attempts to load the game and turns on all the connections are perfect. When you loaded the game did u put the DVD drive cover back on or the magnet back on the game? If you did and it gave you the DRE you probably just need to adjust your laser. The fall probably misaligned it. Check this link to realign your laser.

    Also, just make sure that when the game is being read that the laser is not slipping on the gear and it is actually griping on well. If these tips might not help you might have to post a video on youtube or something so i can see whats happening. Hope this helps.
