PS 2 shocked me when I was turning it off. Now it won't turn on.
I reached to turn off my PS 2 and I received a super static electricity shock. Now the unit won't turn on. The power button still lights up but only in the red color. What can I do? It was fairly new when this happened.

When you experienced that shock you may have inadvertenly sent an electro static discharge to the circuitry inside the ps2 which would cause it to stop working.
If it is fairly new return it to the store you purchased it let them know whar happened and usually they will exchange the item for you.

It was probably just static electricity. Sometimes the body build up static electricity by just walking on a carpet or from friction of the clothes being worn. He then got the shock when he somehow grounded himself.
There are no capacitors or anything
that can hold a charge on the cart itself. The only thing that we've
been able to come up with thus far is that dry air in the schools may
help generating static electricity. Common precautions would be 1. make
sure the ground plug is still on the cord. (This can get broken off if
the cart is moved with the cord still plugged into the wall.) Plugging
the ground cord in won't help however if the person has to grab the door
handle to open the door to get to the wall outlet. 2. If the air is dry
(ie: people get shocks even without the cart or the problem goes away
in the spring when the humidity goes up), gently push the metal of the
cart handle against the door frame prior to reaching for the door
handle. This will discharge any static electricity that was built up as
the person walked with the cart safely to the door jamb prior to the
person reaching for the door handle.
static electricity can damage the chips on the boards. it all depends were the static voltage went to, if it was just to the buttons controller board or to the main av board. you could need new button board or you could need to replace the main board and the button board its hard to say with static shock.
I am sure you had some strong static electricity. The static spark arced to inside of the TV in to the circuit board. Many of the low cost TV sets have poor static electricity protection.
In most cases there is damaged caused by static shock to electronic devices.
Just for curiosity, you can try unplugging the set from the AC mins and plugging it back in to do a simple reset, in case there is no damage and some logic device became hung up.
Last year I picked up my mobile phone and got a static shock from it. I had to get a new phone. This phone never worked again!
the fact that you got shock is because something is not right inside the tv. You need to have that tv check because a manufacturer will not fabricated a tv that can electrocute anyone, specially when you turn the volume. Static electricity is always present in front of any tv that might be the cause of why you got shock. By removing your coat, and touch some metallic object you may get electrocuted, because of static electricity. Please, I want you to have that tv check, I can check that tv for you. I felt something is wrong inside the tv, and something is loose inside like pennies and toys objects. That's my impression. My e-mail address Stevebuy31@hotmail.com
