I took my PS2 apart to clean the lense becaus it wasn't reading discs properly and when I put it back together I got nothing. No red light, no green light, no power whatsoever! Please help!


be sure that the wire that connects to the power buttons are property installed, also to the playstation, , be really careful.. also what you can do is just give them a small push to both of them to make sure they are getting a connection

The on/off switch won't turn on. i have power on (red light) switch clicks but no green light. i have taken lid off and white button seams on work but still no green light. i have even held down little...


This is one of three things. Unfortunately, it's difficult to determine which, unless you start replacing parts.

1. Bad switch. The switch doesn't usually go bad by itself, has the PS2 been dropped? Bumped? Anyone push the switch too hard? It's held in by solder on all 4 corners. If the solder becomes dislodged, the switch can fail.

2. Bad cable. This is rare unless someone opened the PS2 and removed/installed the cable a few times and frayed the internal wires.

3. Bad motherboard. Sometimes a power problem can develop, or the motherboard can short out. It's pretty rare, but I have seen it happen.

4. Bad AC adapter. Recent power surge? It's possible that the AC adapter is delivering enough voltage to power the standby light, but not enough to power the actual system on. You can easily check this by plugged your PS2 up on someone else's AC adapter or taking your AC adapter to someone else's PS2.

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.

Playstation 2 power button


Try pushing the eject button to see if the power button is faulty. If the PS2 is off and you press the eject button, it automatically turns the PS2 on and ejects the DVD tray.

DVD-videos won't play, games do


If your PS2 is chipped for playing PS2 fake games then try the following steps: 1)Insert the DVD movie in your PS2 and hold the power button of PS2 until it light goes red. 2)Now again hold the power button until the light turns in green. and after that your DVD movie should work. ________________________________________________ If above solution does not works replace the lens with a new one.
