Hi Revarner,

When I get one like this, I replace the motherboard.

If you are not able to do this yourself. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. The click on "Video Game Consoles" Pick a good Repair shop dedicated to repairing Playstations.

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.
