Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

PS2 not staying on

I haven't used my ps2 (thin model with flip up top for discs) in about 6-8 months. Red light is on...push the power button and it lights up green for about 1 second then green light goes blank for 2 seconds and red light returns. Any suggestions? I really haven't used this ps2 that often since I bought it...I only use it in football season and it's only about 2yrs old.

It's either a faulty power-pack (the boxy thing that is between the unit and the wall) or it's in the unit itself. If you know someone else who has one see if you can borrow their power-pack and try your unit on it. If the problem persists with the other AC unit then it is on the motherboard and will be likely unrepairable.

I took my PS2 apart to clean the lense becaus it wasn't reading discs properly and when I put it back together I got nothing. No red light, no green light, no power whatsoever! Please help!


be sure that the wire that connects to the power buttons are property installed, also to the playstation, , be really careful.. also what you can do is just give them a small push to both of them to make sure they are getting a connection

Guitar hereo wont work on slimline ps2


I had the same issue (since Christmas).  Today it was rainy, so I spent some time with kids and here is what worked for me
Here's what I did to fix the same problem on my PS2 (Slim model # SCPH-70012). This should work for all models of PS2's. (Slim or Fat). Sony says all models can read a dual layer disc.


1) Start up the PS2 with no disc in it.
2) Highlight the 'Browser' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
3) Highlight the 'Console' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
4) Highlight the 'Diagnostics' menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'ON'.
5) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
6) Highlight the 'PlaystationDrive' menu and press the 'green triangle' button.
7) Highlight the 'Disc Speed' menu and press the 'blue X' button and select 'FAST'.
8) Press the 'red O' button to back out of this menu.
9) Turn off your PS2.


10) Insert the disc and turn the PS2 back on. The diagnostics should run and automatically adjust your PS2 to play the game. I was amazed! Mine loaded right up after several previous days of nothing.

11) I checked the settings after the initial load and the Diagnostics and Drive speed reset to normal so it must be a one time run thing. My game has loaded everytime since and I haven't had to re-do the settings at all.

I hope this works for you too!!

On my PS2 thin the red standby light is on and I push the button to turn it on, the light turns green like usual, but only for a second and then the light completely shuts off as if it was unpluged, after...


Try pulling the power adaptor out of the back of the ps2 ,then make sure no dust or debree is in the part that plugs into the ps2 then plug it back in and make sure its attached firmly. The ps2 should turn on now
