Well maybe not killed it but stopped it form working like it should. I stuck some carboard in the disc drive bit, underneath where the actual disc goes, as I was trying to use a make-shift slide tool. I now think there may be a small piece of cardboard stuck in there that is stopping the drive from closing. I had to pull it open with force. I'm guessing that it is easy enough to remove the disc drive cover once the PS2 is opened up? I just need a really tiny screwdriver I think after having a look.

(I've called myself most insults as a result of doing this but I guess there are quite a few more that everyone can come up with for me....)

Don't forget that cardboard is flammable, so you could try burning* the thing out of your PS2.

*Note: Setting fire to stuff may be unwise. Never mix flame and alcohol.
