Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

Nah, its not a problem with the fuses ....

Hi, I checked the fuses, they were perfectly alright. I even checked the fan because I had a bit of a trouble with the fan. Everything was fine. I think that it is a problem with the small chip in front of the power button. Has anyone come across this problem??? Can I solve it myself or do I have to give it to the repairer for changing the chip? Is the chip available in the market? If yes, then what is the name of the chip? Thanks a lot.

Hi banerjen, SInce your already into the unit, I know i give you some tips earlier. You may have a problem with the Reset/Eject Buttons. if the cable is connected, and you press them and nothing happens, We need to start looking at that. If the Red/Green led is not lighting, then someting could be wrong with the ribbon cable. Stay in touch, We will get there. I do not think it is a chip problem. Chip Problems usually are the LSER is not moving, or the DISC is not spining , or the CD tray is not opening.

360s r pieces of ****

assuming the ring of death issue with red lights half lit or not lit or lit in odd order, this would be temperature related and overheating issue, im assuming this causes system to freze, simple fix get a fan and cool it down a bit, run with fan on, if works ok then get yourself a modual fan built for xbox 360 hope it works.

I believe there might be a problem with the power connector where you first turn on your system in the back. There is either a shortage or something inside has fried. Best thing to do is to have a gaming tech take a look at your system.
