The input AC socket of your PS2 is loose for which you can replace only this socket if some dry solder is not there. Note: This AC Socket is totally seperate from Motherboard.

Someone gave me a playstation 2 but I do not have an ownwer's manual on how to set it up

1 lug it in
you should have a plug wire that goes to the outlet
the other end plugs into the ac port on the back
then the three colored wires correspond to the the colored jacks on the back of your tv
the flat end of that wire goes in the flat hole of the ps2 in back
set your tv to whatever input you plugged you ps2 in
tada that simple

Have no colour coded holes in my lcd t.v to connect my play station 2 and have no picture at all just normal chanles and the power indicator light is on ?????????????

Check for outlets marked video in, audio in l,r on the back, side or front of your tv. The yellow ps2 plug would go into the video in, red & white would plug into the l,r audio in. You would then need to set the tv to video 1 setting in order to play. Hope this helps.

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~~

No picture for playstation 2

Could possibly be that it is not connected up correctly, or your playstation has died. If you have access to another playstation, hook it up to your cables as they are hooked up. If the screen works. Your playstation has died.

If not, and you have the same issues, try their cables, and if that doesn't work. You have it plugged in incorrectly.

Power failuer

Check the outlet, power cord and ps2. Also, PS2 slims dont have fans so it could just be overheated, so just wait an hour or so, should fix it.

PS2 screen won't show on tv set to game

try to trouble shoot if the wire is the problem, how? remove the 3 colored wires from the tv and ps2 then try to use the red color instead of yellow to the video from tv and ps2 (both red) temporarily do not use the yellow color. once a picture appears use now the white for the audio (both white) for left audio once there is a sound you may try the yellow for the right audio. i hope this will help you and hear a positve reply from you.

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.
