HI...
This might sound "non-techy" but UNPLUG the power and shoot some WD40 into slot around the Power-on/reset switch. The press the switch several times.
Try with power connected.
There is a microswitch in there that doesnt know youre pushing the outside switch.
If it's broken , it can be replaced.
Also, is there a power light on the AC adapter/supply? and Is it ON?
I know places that have the parts.

PS2 No Green Light


Maybe it has something to do with your power supply, try replacing it with a different one.

Ps2 not spinning and light turning green then back to red


Hi

Your PS2 is probably experiencing a short circuit on the motherboard or the Emotion Engine is burned up. Sometimes the fan goes dead and the PS2 overheats and shuts down showing the red light. You can open the PS2 and clean up the motherboard and maybe it will recover.

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.

PS2 turns on fine when disk tray is open but the reset button turns red from green and stops working


Here's a pretty good guess what happened... All of the Windex products are mostly water. You probably got some of the Windex onto the board of the PS2. Now this isn't a problem until it is energized. Once you turned it on, the windex which is mostly water probably shorted out your board instantly. There are a few things you can try though. Open up your console and try to dry the area with a hair dryer. After it appears dry, check to see it there is any corrosion anywhere you see metal. If there is, clean those areas with a q-tip and isoproply alcohol. Then you will want to let the parts air dry. Repeatedly hitting it with the hair dryer can shrink wires inside the system and can cause them not to function. See if that fixes the problem. If not, you may need to prepare your PS2 for a proper burial. And next time you need to clean the fan, use some sort of vacuum to suck the junk out from the back. Hope this helps. Good luck.
