PS2 Repair Question

I have an older version PS2, and when I turn on the power all the software seems to boot up fine, but when I try to open the tray, I hear a whirring noise, like the motor is struggling to push out the disc tray, and then silence. Do any of you have an easy solution to fix this problem? Do I have to buy a new motor, tray, or what? If so, does anyone know where I can get these parts? Any suggestions or links would be extremely appreciated.

It could just be the belt that opens the tray has slipped off. You would have to open up the system to check.

Try calling Sony first (1-800-345-Sony) My older version PS2 (bought at launch) stopped reading discs and scratched my Madden game in a circular motion. When I called Sony to tell them, they said that it shouldn't be doing this and would waive the repair fees for me. If it helps any, I spoke to a lady named Olga and she was VERY nice about the whole situation. In fact, she even said they would replace the Madden disc for me. I was shocked because my PS2 is way over the 1 year warranty and it would have cost me over $100 to get it fixed. Anyway, it wouldn't hurt to try.
