Well could just be shot fans are not suppose to last forever the best thing to do would be replace the fan, make sure that the fan is not plugged up with anything and it has free movement when spinning if it struggles any then its seized up which would have to be replaced measure the fan and take a look on ebay for a replacement fan of that size but if you search for ps2 fan replacement then chances are that it will cost alot more.

if you need help finding a replacement let me know im more then willing to help out.

good luck

Overheating only in traffic when I use my air-con.

You have two fans in your Nissan, one is for the engine and the other one is for the A/C. Whenever you turn on your A/C, the fan runs continuously not matter what untill shut your engine down. First you need to check the fan switch for the A/C before you go out and buy one. As for the cooling fan for the motor. There is no need to buy a fan for the engine side. Track the A/C fan wire back to the switch and let me know.

On switch button turns green and immediatley turns off again. My disc in the beggining stoped spinning eventhough i can here it trying to spin

Can you hear the fan spinning on the inside of the PS2? If the PS2 comes on, loads the disc, then shuts itself off, chances are it is overheating and shuts off to prevent damage. There is a small fan on the inside of the Slim PS2 that keeps it cool.

If you press the reset switch and it goes from red to green and immediately back to red without ever turning on, your motherboard is shot. ESD damage.

Ps2 console will play for 5 minutes, then it shuts off and the power button keeps blinking. how can this be fixed?

it's over heating.
check the fan to make sure it's working and make sure nothing is blocking the vents.
remove any dust/**** in the system.
you might try using a electric fan to cool the system while you play.
hope this helps.
please rate solution ;p

you need to replace the internal fan as it over heating ?

Wii keeps shutting down

First, I would advise you to not power up the console if it's getting hot. When the console is running, can you see the small fan on the back spinning? If not, you can probably buy an external cooling fan like this one.

This will act as a surrogate cooler to replace the original fan, and should allow the console to stay cool enough to remain on.

Cool down

Like burst said make sure its getting hot..your cooling fan couold be going bad.. if there is heavy dust build up it will restrict air flow and cause the fan to not work can use a vacume that has a hose to suck out the dust by holding it at the back (((( unplug all power to your ps2 first))))) the suction will cause the fan to spin at a higher rpm freeing up the dust..or you can use a can of keyboard cleaner and blow it out..but that just spreads it through the machine unless you have it apart..

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.
