Possibly but please do the following:

Tirn console off and disconnet power supply for 30 seconds. then reconnect and turn on the console via the button on the front WATCH THE LIGHT CLOSELY - if it JUST turns on then goes off its either a dead powers supply-perfectly feasable bearing how old the thing is. If it blinks then im afraid your console is dead and a replacement will probably be cheaper than repair. New power supplies can be ordered in by GAME or GAMESTATION if not in stock

Power supply is the place to look, look for bulging on top of the capacitors in the secondary side of the main power supply.

TV will not power up. red LED blinking 5 times


I always found the problem to be either a combo of the x-sus printed circuit board and the y-sus printed circuit board. It is also very worth checking out your poer supply circuitry as well. Good Luck.

My PS2 can play games,but at some time the console would turn off/shutdown automatically with the red light blinking/turning on and off


this is probably an overheat problem. you could remove the heat sync and apply thermal gel to the processor, also check that the case fan runs.

Problems trying to get my ps2 to fully work.


Your power supply is not giving enough power to the unit. Get a new power supply and you will be fine.

PS2 No Green Light


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

No power on my ps2


Ok this is a classic bad power supply! There could be 2 solutions to this! 1 a new power supply or a new 50 cent fuse!

If you are willing to tear it apart ... but that is if this is a fat ps2.. If it is let me know and we can get cracking!

Ps2 slim's red light wont turn on (wont run games too)


I have the same problem. At first if I wiggled the powere supply cord, and pulled it in one direction, it worked. After a while it wouldn't turn on at all. I ordered another supply cord, but no luck. I opened up the PS2 to see if I could see anything. The male terminal which the power supply plugs into, has three solder joints on the bottom of the terminal. Mine had the main solder joint broke loose. I am going to try resoldering it back on. I will post again if it works. If not will probably just buy another one.
