PS2 Dilemma

    I was surfing the web and saw a number of posts about fixing the disk read error dilemma. I took apart the PS2 and after about 3-4 hrs finally got the thing to read all CD's ( silver, black, blue )! Now, when I put the cover back on there is no power going to the reset or tray buttons. What happened? I had the same thing happen to one I took apart before ( I have 2 ) and ran into the same problem. Is there a safety switch in there or is this that wire that runs from the cover to the unit itself?

    There is a ribbon cable that goes from the power/eject buttons to the PS2. Youve either damaged the cable or snapped it off.
