PS2 problems...

Posted by xionpunk (366 posts) -

Ok so this sucks.  I wanted to play FFX earlier today but the disc wouldn't play.  No problem... I can usually pop the PS2 open, fiddle with the laser position, and get stuff to work. The only problem is when I removed the cover, the power supply ribbon pulled completely out. Yikes. I tried looking online for good instructions, but haven't found anything incredibly useful.  The ribbon isn't torn, it looks like it could be plugged back in maybe, but I don't know how to go about taking ths stuff apart.  Has this happened to any of you? Any help, or direction to some help would be useful.

Actually, that same exact thing happened to me a couple years back. I looked online for instructions on how to fix it, to no avail. I ended up demolishing it and throwing it out. At the time, they announced that the PS3's were no longer backwards compatibible by hardware, so I bought myself a new PS3.
 
If you can find some info as how to fix it, that'd be awesome, but from experience let me tell you that nothing went as planned.

@VinceNotVance:   Ah,   I found where it goes but can't get the damn thing to slide back in.  Hopefully I won't have to trash this thing. 
 
 
Ha  actually just figured it out.  NIIIIICE.
