Power problem with ps2 slim

I'm having trouble turning on my ps2 lately. The power cord has to be in just the right position for even the red light to come on. It used to be that I could just tape the cord in that position and it would be fine, but it's starting to be impossible to keep that way, unless someone's actually holding it in place. is there something I can do to fix this?

Psp slim power problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Try a different power cord. If it's not that, then you might need to contact Sony. You can get a power cord from just about any store that sells PS2's for about $15.

Slimline PS2 Power Problem


What do you have to hold down, the cord from the adaptor to the machine or the cord from the plug to the adaptor? Did you get a shock when you first tried holding the cords down? The cords are pretty thick and the insulation should not peel off at all unlees you are also twisting the cord. Also if you lay the console flat instead of using the stand the problem may clear up, because you won't be twisting the cord.

Ps2 slim's red light wont turn on (wont run games too)


I have the same problem. At first if I wiggled the powere supply cord, and pulled it in one direction, it worked. After a while it wouldn't turn on at all. I ordered another supply cord, but no luck. I opened up the PS2 to see if I could see anything. The male terminal which the power supply plugs into, has three solder joints on the bottom of the terminal. Mine had the main solder joint broke loose. I am going to try resoldering it back on. I will post again if it works. If not will probably just buy another one.
