Re: old ps2 wont turn on

First thing I would think would cause this problem is a faulty power supply. Since it is shutting off very quick, I would think that there is a bad diode in the supply. The instant you put a load on it (i.e. turning it on)it quits. Sounds like you need to replace the supply or the unit which ever will be more cost effective for you. Depending on the model PS2 that you have, replacement power supplies are all over the internet. Hope this helps. Good luck.

My PS2 wont turn on

is either the power cord plugged in all the way in back of the system, or is the switch on the back turned to on. This may work for ps2 non slim.

My door will not stay shut to play a game what is ps2 door was not opening so we thought we fixed it but now it wont stay shut . all lights are on just wont stay shut to even read/play any games...

the tray doesnt stay in. does your ps2 sit on its side where the tray is sideways, or is it straight up? i think you should try rotating it to a point where it should stay shut.

My slim playstation 2 is not working need answer quick

Haha i understand your distress :) if your slim ps2 is not turning on, first check and make sure that all your wires and stuff are all plugged in to EVERYTHING. also, make sure your outlet works too. corroded electrical outlets wont work. Also, make sure your PS2 cooler is not blocked in any sort of way. if you need any more issues, just ask :) ~~RJ~~

The red standby light is on but it wont turn all the way on and show the green light

odd problem you have there

how old is your PS2? the power button might be starting to go if its anything older then 3-5 yrs, when did you buy it and how often do you use it?


are you holding the button when you press it? if yes then thats the problem, it only needs a single press, otherwise it just turns itself off again after 1 second of holding it

tell us how you go

It wont turn on at all

The same problem occured to my slimline ps2. I opened it to find that the power switch inside had broken of. The only option is to get the switch soldiered back on or replace the tiny circuit board that has the switch.
