PS2 Slim - Power Issue

My kids haven't played their PS2 in a few days, and when they went to turn it on they realized there is NO power on the console (LED does not come on - at all)....Is there any hsitory with the AC/DC converters going bad ???...Or, could something else be the problem ?

It could be the power cord, but it could also be the connection where the cable connects to the system. The cheapest fix would be to try a new power cord. If it's the slim PS2 then it's only about a $15 fix. If it's the large older PS2, then it's more like a $5 fix for a cord.
blingbdog, do you have the slim or the old large system? Also, let me know if the warranty is still valid (have you had the console for more than 1 year).

I have a ps2 slim SCPH-79001, so I am not sure if it will work with the fat ps2s but:

Turn the ps2 horizontly with the ps2 front facing you. Then put it in, you should hear a few ticks (with the slim) and just tap it against you knee a few times until you jear it spinning.

Again, I'm not sure if this will work with the fat ps2, but I hope I helped.

My slim playstation 2 is not working need answer quick


Haha i understand your distress :) if your slim ps2 is not turning on, first check and make sure that all your wires and stuff are all plugged in to EVERYTHING. also, make sure your outlet works too. corroded electrical outlets wont work. Also, make sure your PS2 cooler is not blocked in any sort of way. if you need any more issues, just ask :) ~~RJ~~

PS2 Slim will not play


hi Calex988,
Unlike the PS2 original, PS2 slim doesnt have a fan.
Playing it for 2 days, it most likely overheated and burnt something inside. I would return the console and get a replacement, if you have warrently.

Playstation 2 console


Hi Ron, To the best of my Troubleshooting knowledge on the Slim, this sounds like a Temperature problem. Do not lay the Slim on the carpet when playing and try not to keep it in sunlight. It will last you much longer to shut it off when not using it. Let it cool off and try it again. If dust is the culprit, you will need to disassemble the Slim and clean it out, mainly the fan. The Slims fan is very succeptable to dust accumulation. www.playstationclinic.com
