Re: off and on
I believe your PS2 has a short circuit and needs another motherboard. If you know how to replace the motherboard yourself, that’s great. You can find Motherboards or a PS2 like yours that has a DRE or Disc Read Error but will boot up for about $25 on Ebay. If you’re not comfortable with Changing out your motherboard, then click on the "Repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. On the Repair Directory Screen, select Video Game Consoles. Choose a good Repair shop.

Your PS2 is probably experiencing a short circuit on the motherboard or the Emotion Engine is burned up. Sometimes the fan goes dead and the PS2 overheats and shuts down showing the red light. You can open the PS2 and clean up the motherboard and maybe it will recover.
