Yes this port be changed out on a slim like the fatter PS2 version it is a complicated work and should be done by an expert technician only otherwise the tracks on motherboard will be spoiled.
One thing be sure before changing the port you check it if this port is physically damaged then only you can proceed otherwise you please compare the working voltages on all pins with your port 2 and sort out the fault because sometimes +5v supply missing or any diodes connected on port is short which can be the reason for this fault.

The Power Connector has probably come unsoldered inside the PS2 console. The motherboard is a multilayered board and normal soldering can sometimes total a motherboard. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this Screen. Click on "Video Game Consoles" on the next Screen, Investigate which Repair shop can help you best.

Does the light come on?  I am assuming you do not get anything on the TV screen.  How did the Ribbon get a hole in it? 

Get parts for the PS2 reasonable from Ebay.I do not want to venture a guess wihtout more info.


Repair charges for a PS2 Slim at the Playstation Clinic range from $25 to $75, where if it needs more work than $75 can repair, it is totaled.

Hi pr princess, You have a dirty laser lens. Possibly other dust problems and hair and or lint. Your PS2 is dirty. If you have technical savvy, you can disassemble the PS2 and clean everything thoroughly. If you do not want to take on this tedious job, I can help you. Check out my website I will thoroughly detail your PS2, and clean the lens, plus test it with every kind of media it is supposed to run. I will give you a deal of $20 plus shipping. If you have slim model, the Slim could need a new laser since sony cut back on how hefty the laser is constructed. A new laser will run the cost of repair up $12. So $32 plus shipping. Total turn around is less than 10 days.
