Re: PS2 power ribbon

Does the ribbon look damaged at all, Have you done a continuity test at each contact point of the ribbon, Sounds like the ribbon may possibly have a tear in it? Check and get back to us please.

Problems trying to get my ps2 to fully work.

Your power supply is not giving enough power to the unit. Get a new power supply and you will be fine.

Good Luck

PS2 Power Cable

This is normal just press the button that is red and it will work like normal again! you will have to always do that because that is off because there is two ways to turn it off at the back and holding the green light till it turns red

Hope this helps - Josh Howard

PS2 power ribbon Help!!!!!!

Use a pair of needle nose pliers and grip the connection end of the Ribbon cable by the hard plastic piece.  Insert this cable in the second connector from the front.  The connectors are located under the right edge of the CD drive.
