You probably have something wrong with the fan inside. Open up your Slim and clean it out real good and try it to see if the problem goes away. I sometime see that dust clogs the fan and stops it from spinning.

The PS2 shuts off automatically when acquiring heat, it might have been cutting off due to excessive heat or overheating. If the system does not power on, well the internal power supply unit might have gone busted and generally a hardware failure causing this issue.

Was playing a game, and the system shut itself off. When I turn it on, it beeps a few times and shuts off again. Help?

Unplug all cables on your PS3 and disc storage for 2 to 3 minutes.
If this does not solve the problem find a local electronic repair shop or service center near you and let them take a look to determine what is the actual problem..

Hello, My PS3 just keeps turning itself off. I have tried to reset the system but it keeps flashing red and yellow lights and then turns itself off into standby mode? HELP......

Try removing the game inside your disc. then try removing other external hardware and slots and try again. If problem persists it might be a system problem. Please go to the shp from where you bought it and ask them for a replacement.

On switch button turns green and immediatley turns off again. My disc in the beggining stoped spinning eventhough i can here it trying to spin

Can you hear the fan spinning on the inside of the PS2? If the PS2 comes on, loads the disc, then shuts itself off, chances are it is overheating and shuts off to prevent damage. There is a small fan on the inside of the Slim PS2 that keeps it cool.

If you press the reset switch and it goes from red to green and immediately back to red without ever turning on, your motherboard is shot. ESD damage.

System shuts off after approximately five minutes of game play

Make sure your system is well ventilated and you keep the vents clean with compressed air and vacuum the vents out also, it may be overheating which means your system will shut down itself.

PS2 Shuts Itself Down

hmm, annoyingly this is quite a common problem on the early releases of the slimline Ps2 models. The power supply units get to hot and can cause this problem. I'd recommend getting an updated PSU unit which will be available online
