PlayStation 2 Power Supply

The power supply to our PS2 comes and goes. Wiggling the power cable close to where it enters the console will eventually turn it back on. It will play fine for a while then suddenly cut out.

The problem started after it had been played for a long while during a car journey and I thnk the vibration may have damaged either the cable or the power in socket.

Any ideas? Can I repair it myself?

Power supply secondary output voltage

I would stick to replacing the whole power supply rather than bits and pieces.

The website above sells PS2 power supplies.

If you want to try and replace bits and pieces, you can probably find individual components at Radio Shack... but you would have to be good at troubleshooting and soldering.

My ps2 when power is applied, the red light turns on briefly and then nothing. Could I have a bad power supply?

Possibly but please do the following:

Tirn console off and disconnet power supply for 30 seconds. then reconnect and turn on the console via the button on the front WATCH THE LIGHT CLOSELY - if it JUST turns on then goes off its either a dead powers supply-perfectly feasable bearing how old the thing is. If it blinks then im afraid your console is dead and a replacement will probably be cheaper than repair. New power supplies can be ordered in by GAME or GAMESTATION if not in stock

My playstation 2 slim No have power on swith

Power supply may be junk, can you test it on a friends and see if its the power supply? If the power supply is good the system is dead, but need to test the power supply first.

PS2 bad power supply

Greetings Xwrongwayx,

My suggestion is if it will plug into the newer unit, then it is fine to utilize the older power supply. I have two different PS2 units, and we use the cords for either to plug the units in.

I hope this helps!

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.
