My cousin was having the same problem with his PS2 coming on then going back off. Upon further investigation, it turned out he was holding the power button too long and was essentially turning on and back off. I hope this helps.

Can not get online anymore? Was working then it quit


the server is full, if you attempt too many times to gain access they can lock you out for 24 hours, if a map pack has come out this is an often occurrence, try logging on through the ps3 portal on your pc to verify it.

The remedy is quite simple actually for any router. Two things need to be known & with them, you need to enter that information below, into the PS3 configuration. 1) Your SSID of the Router The name of the network. 2) WEP must be 'enabled' and the WEP key entered.
If you don't know or remember set the router all up again and take note this time of SSID & WEP key.

Hey Mark k,

I'm going to assume that you've had the PS2 for a long while. If it isn't under any kind of warrenty, you could try opening it up, and just clean it out a bit. Sometimes the eye can get dusty over time and have a difficult time working.

You could also purchase a cleaning kit from electronic stores, or even wal-mart. All you do is apply a cleaning agent onto a cd that comes with it, and you put it in.

Don't fret too much about this issue, it's quite common in older consoles that read cd's/dvd's.

Hi Jlewis06,

The Big Size PS2 does not usually have any problem with this.If you do have the Phat size PS2, the power connection is easy to replce and you can get another one on Ebay relatively cheap. I do believe you have a Slim PS2. The slim does have a high rate of failure in the power Socket. It either needs another motherboard, or the Power socket needs to be resoldered carefully or replaced. You can Click on the "Repair Directory" link at the bottom of the page and look for Video Game console repair.
