    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.

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.
