Check either the connection of the elctric cord connecting the ps2 and the socket if its loose or not. still if there is a problem take the ps2 from where u bought it and either get it replaced or ask the them to fix it.

Psp slim power problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try a different power cord. If it's not that, then you might need to contact Sony. You can get a power cord from just about any store that sells PS2's for about $15.

Green light won't stay on

Call tech support! That's why these people get paid. Sites like this wouldn't need to exist if they did their jobs correctly!

Slimline PS2 Power Problem

What do you have to hold down, the cord from the adaptor to the machine or the cord from the plug to the adaptor? Did you get a shock when you first tried holding the cords down? The cords are pretty thick and the insulation should not peel off at all unlees you are also twisting the cord. Also if you lay the console flat instead of using the stand the problem may clear up, because you won't be twisting the cord.

Ps2 slim's red light wont turn on (wont run games too)

I have the same problem. At first if I wiggled the powere supply cord, and pulled it in one direction, it worked. After a while it wouldn't turn on at all. I ordered another supply cord, but no luck. I opened up the PS2 to see if I could see anything. The male terminal which the power supply plugs into, has three solder joints on the bottom of the terminal. Mine had the main solder joint broke loose. I am going to try resoldering it back on. I will post again if it works. If not will probably just buy another one.
