Ps2 slim will not power up

usually, there is a problem with a ribbon cable of power/reset switch. Try using a replacement ribbon of the same type.

PS2 slim Power Problem - Light is red goes green but nothing else.

Hi Leostg,


I have seen this a couple of times.  Lightning or an overload has burned up the motherboard. Its not a fuse, its a fried Emotion Engine processor.   Best advice on dead motherboard is to probably total it unless you can get a low price motherboard replacement. My cost on a new motherboard for slim is about $55.  If you want it fixed, replace the motherboard.  Really you may be able to get another Slim for $55 or less. If you look on ebay  for another motherboard do not take any chances on used motherboards. Go for a broken slim model that will boot up but want read discs. When you get one that boots up, use its motherboard in your Slim.  This will be your best deal at getting your slim up and running once more.

Please give me a Solved vote. I believe you only get one vote and its locked.   I have put a lot into your solution and hope you will show appreciation by voting solved.
