I have been using my playstation 2 with no problems. One day I plug everything in and nothing happens. I tried different plugs, plugging it in an out, rehooking up the cables and nothing.
The red light comes on but the green light will not turn on when I push the power button.

Re: my playstation 2 won't turn on at all
Can either be the power button(pretty common issue or a loose connector).Depend what kind of machine you have .PS2 have a common denominator...but actually the machine are different each other.The FAT one and the Slim one are totally different

1, Check if its a problem with the disk, if its the ps3 send it to repair you might even get a new one 2. If its the disk , Buy a new disk, if it happens again, check if it happens to alll disks if it does >>> 3. You must buy games from the PlayStation Store. They have some pretty good deals too :P
Hi, The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way: 1. Turn off Playstation 3. 2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again. 3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps 4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button. 5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button 6. The Recovery menu will pop up. The current Recovery Menu supports: • Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System. • Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default. • Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files. • Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3. • Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch. • System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System From the above select option "Rebuild Database". After PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu. Thank you
bring it to the technician,,,, if you are less experience on wiring it will damage your ps2 console... besides there is a ribbon that slightly attach to the on and off power and reset just before you fully open it,,,, if you screwed while opening you might junk your ps2
All you need to do is replace the harddrive and/or reformat the current one which will require removing it and using a PC to reformat it if it will read. If not , simply replacing it will work I would recommend an upgrade at that point as well if you would like. I upgraded to 250GB when this happened to me. System works just fine now.
Hello. There are a few causes for this. I will list acouple solutions for you.
1. Reset the Video Output Settings. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings. Once you turn it back on, it should work fine.
2. Make sure the TV is on the correct seting. i.e. Video 1, Video 2, etc.
3. If option 1 does not work call Sony because the video out chip has blown or come unsoldered.
