HI Badask7776,

Give the PS2 a good internal cleaning. If your not able to do this, get it serviced. Click on " Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Find " Video game Consoles" and click on that. Pick a good Playstation Repair shop.

My playstation3 turned off while playing a game i then pressed the on button then a green light and amber light then a flashing red one comes up but it wont start

sounds like the yellow light of death YLOD it will need attention, you can take to get repaired for around £40/70 or if still under 1yr call playstaion and they will replace with a re-conditioned on, nearly brand new. sorry pal.

My playstation2 wont turn on the red button is on. anyone have some feedback on this issure

You need to press the red button to get the system to turn on. It should show a green light. There will be a blue light next to the green light if you also have a game inside.

Turned off with out doing anything

if it is a red light.... you have the ps3 equivalent to the rings of death on a xbox 360 meaning it had a serious system crash it has something to do with the gpu and cpu and you must send it back for a replacement as it is unfixable, here what the colors mean, red=dead, green=good, yellow=overheated

Your unit may be damaged. Turn the unit off, unplug it, wait 30 seconds, plug in, turn on, press power button. 
If you have the same issue, call sony support for hardware repair.

Wont boot fully boot up.

Try reseting your PS3. Turn your PS3 completely off by the switch in the back. Then flip the switch back on. Press on the power button and hold it until the green light comes on, beeps twice then the green light should go out, replaced by a red light. Then turn it on normally.
