Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
I recently dropped my ps2 and the power button was jammed. I opened the case to find out that the touch sensor that triggers the power broke. The ps2 fell at an angle and caused the touch sensor to dislodge. Now I was wondering if it would be possible, via a soldering iron, etc, to reattach the touch sensor or would it be easier to just get a new power switch module (~$10 on ebay).
That PCB is pretty basic, so if you are good at soldering tiny parts, IN PRINCIPLE, you should be able to fix it. That said, you must be certain that the switch itself is working and that the PCB is OK. Use a multimeter to check connectivity and functionality. To avoid the hassle, yes, it might be a good idea to just buy a new PCB, but be sure to be careful when disconnecting and reconnecting the ribbon cable, as it is very fragile.
