Re: power

Hi All,

Your Slim has a short circuit somewhere. I run a repair shop for Playstations and what I do is clean the Ciruit board and fan out real good to get rid of Dust and lint. Sometime the dust gets wet someway, and begins to conduct the power. This will cause the Slim to go green for a second and then back red.

  1. Remove the screw covers on the bottom of the slim
  2. Remove the screws, I think I remember 7 screws. At least 6.
  3. Remove any disc
  4. Pop the cover up from the back. Sometimes the Right side will not want to pop loose, but it is ok to force it.
  5. Disassemble the console guts carefully. Do not stand on carpet when working on the motherboard. Stand on wood, Ceramic, or Linoleum.
  6. Clean every speck of dust and lint out of the conole.
  7. REassemble and test.
I hope this works for you. Post another comment to this page and I will repsond. You might want to send it off for repair at

Psp slim power problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try a different power cord. If it's not that, then you might need to contact Sony. You can get a power cord from just about any store that sells PS2's for about $15.

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.
