PS2 will not turn on.

The red light stays on and will not power up. How hard is it to get fixed? Or how expensive? Will the remote turn it on?

Re: PS2 will not turn on.

Have you tried a different power supply? Try that first, if that doesnt work then the problem is motherboard related. I dont think the remote would make much difference.

Ps2 does not come off standby!

The problem is with your power flex and it needs to be changed. i advise that to avoid this occurrence you give your console time to rest.

When you plug it in you get a red light and when you try to power it up it stays red.

try this:
turn off the PS2.
unplug the PS2 and wait 1 minute before plugging back in.
turn on PS2.

hope this helps :D

The problem is most commonly the ac power cord. I have a PS2 slimline and I had a power cord that fit into the slot and was completly similar to the original cord ,but you may need to order a new cord to solve your red light situation.

Not turning on

So, ur using the power button in the back, and then the red light turns on? Press the blue and green button on the front, and if that doesn't work, i would save up for an Xbox 360.
