Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

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.

Electric shock from an unplugged Nintendo wii - how is this possible


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.

So i went to turn my playstation on and it shocked me, now it wont turn on at all but the red light is still on. why wont it work anymore, is there anything i can do?


If your playstation shocked you then please immediately unplug it and have it looked at by a qualified service technician or simply replace it. When an electronic device malfunctions to the point its discharging electricity it becomes not only a shock hazard (which can be quite unhealthy) it also becomes a fire hazard which can present a danger to you and your family.

PS2 - when my son went to turn on the console he shocked it (static) and now it won't turn on. Is there anyway to reset it?


i dont know that much about playstation but shock on a small system like that can fry it but if you unplug everything from the system for a day and plug it back in to try it this might work. Or you can get him a PS3 for christmas if you get the first version of the PS3 it can play PS2 games so you dont waste his games.

Playstation 2 Will Not Turn On


It is possible, unfortunately. I would unplug it completely, for a while, and then try again. And then try to get one for free on your local freecycle or craigslist, as it is probably out of warrantee (but check and make sure, if it is in warranteee, sony should replace it).

I shocked my PS2


You have few options. If you know how to take the PS2 apart there should be a small fuse on the computer board you can change. If you fell at all uncomfortable about doing the first spend the money to get it fixed, ther should be a list of repair center @ http://www.us.playstation.com/ . Lastly purchase a new one at Best Buy or Curcuit City and get the warrenty.
