My guess is that your system is not breathing well and overheating. Open your case and clean it thoroughly, and make sure the fan works. If your not comfortable doing this a real good place to go for service is

When i turn on my ps2 the power doesnt work but i already change the fuse

It might not be the fuse,it must be its power cord or the plug you are using try that if it works on other plugs and if not, check the power cord(cable).

Control pad

Control pad's are generally all or nothing devices, they either work or they're dead. However with a console of this vintage there are a few things that can cause this kind of issue and therefor a couple things you can do to try and resolve it. 1: Clean the serial ports and plugs (the ports and plugs that connect the pads to the console) with an air duster. Air dusters are cans of compressed air with a long nozzle and are available from most computer, electronics and hardware stores. Clean both serial ports even if you're only using one. 2: if cleaning doesn't work try unplugging the power cable, removing the console's casing and touching a hot soldering iron to the base of each of the pins that connect the serial ports to the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) in tern to re-solder them without using any extra solder, if you find that you do need more solder be sparing. You can see a pictorial guide to disassembling a Sega Genesis here click the pictures to see a larger image. Lastly if you know anyone else who's in to retro-gaming swap a control pad with them to see if your pad works on there Sega Genesis and there pad works on yours. If you find the pad actually is dead it's not the end of the world, there are a few around on popular auction sites, retro gaming sites and specialist game stores pretty cheaply.

A usb dance pad does not work with a ddr game on ps2 slim, is there a way to make the dance pad work with this game?

The dance pad is just a big flat controller. If it doesn't work, there is probably an issue with the dance pad, not the system.

DDR pads have never been this confusing-There's no place in the console to plug this in.


I would guess at it being USB so you would plug it in via the flap on the front/right of the X360.

If it's Wireless then you would just need to slap some batteries in and turn it on, then turn ur 360 on and it would sync.

Hope that helps.

Ps2 slimline.... disc doesnt spin, laser not flashing or moving... no data on browser

My ps2 has/had the same problem, it wouldn't read DVD movies at all and ps1 games were always hit or miss. The only two solutions i can suggest are cleaning the lens or replacing the little cotton pad that holds the disk in place near the laser. This seemed to fix it for me, it works about 85% of the time now. Hope one of these helps

I have a ps3 but it doesnt work cables plugged in and everything espically on every single tv it doesnt work

hmmm - you need to add more information about this... but did you try switching your TV into the proper channel? Sometimes you need to switch your TV into Video 1, or Video 2, depending on where you plug in your PS3.
