Re: Turns on then turns back off

Maybe you are holding in the button too long and it just shuts off. Try just pushing in the button then letting go. If that's not the problem then sorry can't help ya.

Problems trying to get my ps2 to fully work.

Your power supply is not giving enough power to the unit. Get a new power supply and you will be fine.

Good Luck

On my PS2 thin the red standby light is on and I push the button to turn it on, the light turns green like usual, but only for a second and then the light completely shuts off as if it was unpluged, after...

Try pulling the power adaptor out of the back of the ps2 ,then make sure no dust or debree is in the part that plugs into the ps2 then plug it back in and make sure its attached firmly. The ps2 should turn on now

Ps2 light not stayin green

I believe your PS2 has a short circuit and needs another motherboard. If you can do this yourself, great. You can find Motherboards or PS2 like yours that will not read discs but will boot up for about $25 on Ebay. If your not comfortable with Changing out your motherboard, then Click on the "Repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Once that screen pops up. Clickopn Video Gamer Console Repair. Choose a good Repair shop.
