Question about Video Game Consoles

1 Answer

I have a slinline PS2 console which keeps cutting off the power supply. If pressure is put on the 'power in' cable near the jack then it works fine. It looks like the fault lies with the socket not the jack. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Hi there,
Yup,
This is a common problem and can be cured quite easily with only a little basic soldering skills. A Free, very good, 6 step, pictorial guide can be downloaded from this link in PDF,

And the replacement part can be found on Ebay ot the net, however this Ebay seller is about as cheap as they come.

Hope this helps!

I have just turned on my brand new PS2. I can select English fine but then when it goes to the next screen ('time zone') it won't let me select. The X button doesn't function at all. I can't move forward....


I will suggest that you try your pad on another console if its OK, if its fine and working then do this when you put on the console just unplug the power cable from the console not the power switch. cheers

HELP!!!!!


if this is the slim console and you have a dashboard or main menu display, try putting a little bit of pressure on the corner of the lid near the power/reset button

ussually some slimline ps2 has an easily worn out small button near the power/reset button and another one on the upper left, if your dad has opened up the console ask him to put a masking tape on thos ebutton and try playing the game

let us know if this helped you

PS2 bad power supply


Greetings Xwrongwayx,

My suggestion is if it will plug into the newer unit, then it is fine to utilize the older power supply. I have two different PS2 units, and we use the cords for either to plug the units in.

I hope this helps!

Check the power supply.Use a multimeter if you have any voltage coming out from the power supply.
If the power supply is good Check the main fuse on the motherboard.There is a white ceramic fuse on the motherboard and sometimes get Bad.

PS2 Slim wont turn on


You might try a friends ps2 power supply of the same type to make shure it isnt the ps2 that is broken. If the friends power supply works, get a working one from ebay or something.
