    My playstation has the same problem, but if you move the playstation around a bit it might start working, but eventually you actually have to fix it.

    Check the wiring again. If its perfectly plugged in, its something internal.

Two: Try plugging the power cord into another outlet

My red power light show's red but wont turn on

It sounds like the plug itself may be damaged. I would recommend finding a replacement cord for it as this can cause a fire hazard if it is not connecting properly. You should have registered your PS3 on the sony website. This will provide you with a number of support options. Just visit and select support. This is should assist you. They have a huge forum over there as well that will assist with any further issues you might have.

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.
