Re: ps2 light not stayin green

I believe your PS2 has a short circuit and needs another motherboard. If you can do this yourself, great. You can find Motherboards or PS2 like yours that will not read discs but will boot up for about $25 on Ebay. If your not comfortable with Changing out your motherboard, then Click on the "Repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. Once that screen pops up. Clickopn Video Gamer Console Repair. Choose a good Repair shop.

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.

On my PS2 thin the red standby light is on and I push the button to turn it on, the light turns green like usual, but only for a second and then the light completely shuts off as if it was unpluged, after...

Try pulling the power adaptor out of the back of the ps2 ,then make sure no dust or debree is in the part that plugs into the ps2 then plug it back in and make sure its attached firmly. The ps2 should turn on now

Faulty button, fuse. Try a new power cable, if that doesnt work then it will need a new on/off switch.

Ps2 not spinning and light turning green then back to red


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.
