Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

Unit powers up but no video

My sons slimline ps2 was dropped (not really hard) and now the video does not work. To be honest we set it up on a friends TV and thats when the problem was discovered. Could it be possible that the unit is fine and its the friends TV that is the issue? what are the other possibilities?

Or try opening it up and do it your self. Look and see if anything is out of place or broken. The slot were the AV cable go's in could be broken. And while it is open give a a good clean with rubbing alcohol. That could also be doing something. If that does not work then get service. That is probably the only thing you can do

I dont think that it might be a problem with your friends tv but still try to connect it to your tv , if the problem is not solve then it might be happened that it's internal system got shok due to dropping it . You shoud contact the nearest sony service station and they will repair it as it may be a hardware problem

My PS2 will play only some DVD movies fine. It does the same with PS2 games. Seems like they have removed something that the older, larger PS2s had that allowed them to read DVDs more deeply and play...


Hi there Mike,

The only possible reason for your problem, since your slimline ps2 is STILL reading them (but just a little slow sometimes), is because the lens could hardly read your discs due to dust build up. Try cleaning it using a disc cleaner and letting it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not fix the issue, then you may have to MANUALLY clean the lens. Open the cover and once you see the lens, get a clean swab or qtip and damp it in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens in a circular manner. Then let it dry and try to play those discs again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

My sons ps2 fell on the floor now the disk wont spin how can i fix it


quite honestly with todays advancing technology fixing a ps2 is not worth it. buying a new or preowned one could in fact be cheaper. so i would opt for that as fixing it is more or less an unviable option

My son has a ps2 slimline and wants to play on the internet. We have a linksys wireless routher already. Can the slimline be set up to use that or do we need something else


should be able to use linksys but i always just plugged in with a direct ethernet cord connection. you also have to have the online setup disk for ps2 which should have come with the ps2 slimline. just install disk and follow instructions from there! GOOD LUCK!

PS2 was dropped, now disc won't spin and can't be read.


I just looked at a friend's PS2. Same story, tripped over cord, unit fell to floor. Unit powers up and sys. config. screen comes on but the drive didn't seem to be spinning up. Opened the case and found that the shaft of the drive motor for the laser tray had popped out of it's centering retainer ( little black bushing/holder). With the top off the unit, looking at the unit from the front, on the right side in the rear corner you'll see the motor. The worm shaft (bronze colored rod) runs towards the front of the unit. Where it ends it should sit centered in a black plastic holder, if it's off to the side a little pressure will pop it back in. Put the cover back on, and power it up, you should hear the drive spinning up. If it does you should be set. Hope this helps.

Power cord


This depends on what type of PS2 it is.Original or Slimline. If its the original, No I don't believe it will hurt it at all. I lost my powercord for my PS2, and saw that the one for my PS2, and my Cd player/stereo was nearly the same, but didn't have the same end on it. So I cut it to fit the hole (Warranty Void there I'm sure) and sure enough it worked. I was even able to use it on my stereo still. If thats the case, please be careful when cutting if you go that route. If you have a camera, or an camera-enabled phone, maybe you could take a pic. for us to see the cord. If it's the Slimline version though, and your talking about the cord that plugs directly into the PS2, then yes there's a good chance of it damaging it

PS2 Slim wont turn on


You might try a friends ps2 power supply of the same type to make shure it isnt the ps2 that is broken. If the friends power supply works, get a working one from ebay or something.

Slimline PS2 only plays PS1 Games and not PS2


Clean the LAsers Lens with Q-tip lightly dampened with Glass cleaner, then dry the lens. Try it see if that gets it going again.

If not your lasers lens and supporting frame is probably melting down. You will need a new laser.
Click on "repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then click on "Video Game consoles" Pick a good repair shop.
