Weird sound in PS2 –
i have received a ps2 from a customer to fix.
The ps2 works great but there seems to be an annoying sound.
It's like a rattle sound.
I replaced the motor that regulates the position of the laserlens.
But no succes, the sound is still there.
Any suggestions ?
perhasp the white disk magnet thingy? :-p also does it rattle for every type of disk?
actually i think it does it even without a disk in it...
While i think about,it's mostly when i open the drawer .
Have you tried greasing the parts inside the cd drawer? like the metal runners etc, i had one that vibrated quite bad when it ejected and greased every moving part and it was fine
I made a picture of what is making the noise, it's actually the metal bolt that keeps spinning while the laser doesn't move, if it stops spinning the sound stops allso so it must be this part.
It's pretty greased so i don't think that's the problem.
I allready replaced it with another one so what could it be ?

EXACT same thing happened to me. Pretty soon after making the noise the drawer wouldn't open no more.

If that doesn't work, look at the plastic piece and see if it's worn down relaly bad, try to bend the metal slightly to put more preassure on the brass spiral thing but make sure the spirals on the plastic and the metal line up.
Then it's just a matter of getting the drawer opening timed with the spiral thing. I fixed mine so you shouldn't have that much trouble.
Poblem solved thanx m8 !
I just bended it a little bit and now it is ok.
Woot, tis what I did... Congrats man.
This topic should stay up, cause when it happened to me I was freaking out looking for some help, but had to figure it out on my own.
The only problem is what do you search for? Like, buzzing noise? Funky noise in my Ps2? Hahahah
To all other who have something wrong with their ps2's g'lck it's probably the laser
Im having same prob, i bent it as best i could but still not enough pressure on it, any help? How did you guys bend it?
