Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

PS2 Slimline no longer works

I took my PS2 away on holiday and accidentally plugged in the wrong adapter. Nothing happened in that the machine didn't light up or do anything. I brought it home and realised I had the wrong adapter as mine was still sitting in its normal spot at home. Have I damaged my PS2 electronically as it now no longer works? The green light just blinks but everything else appears pretty dead.

You might have burned a fuse if the other adaptor put more power in it, thats quite bad.
If your handy with electronic things you should be able to open it, check the fuse which you can buy at an electronics store and replace it.
If your not very handy get one of your friends to check it out or get it done somewhere.

Hope this helped.

The on/off switch won't turn on. i have power on (red light) switch clicks but no green light. i have taken lid off and white button seams on work but still no green light. i have even held down little...

This is one of three things. Unfortunately, it's difficult to determine which, unless you start replacing parts.

1. Bad switch. The switch doesn't usually go bad by itself, has the PS2 been dropped? Bumped? Anyone push the switch too hard? It's held in by solder on all 4 corners. If the solder becomes dislodged, the switch can fail.

2. Bad cable. This is rare unless someone opened the PS2 and removed/installed the cable a few times and frayed the internal wires.

3. Bad motherboard. Sometimes a power problem can develop, or the motherboard can short out. It's pretty rare, but I have seen it happen.

4. Bad AC adapter. Recent power surge? It's possible that the AC adapter is delivering enough voltage to power the standby light, but not enough to power the actual system on. You can easily check this by plugged your PS2 up on someone else's AC adapter or taking your AC adapter to someone else's PS2.

My ps2 won't turn on

    First check your adapter(mostly it start problem during long use) that is it ok, if yes the check the flexible strip of power supply. But as precautive measure dont try to fix it by yourself if you are not familer from electronics. Please contact any expert nearby.

Thanks for using FIXYA!

This is a PS2 Slim model SCPH 79001. Reset button does not work. When I plug it in the red LED lights up but when I push the reset button nothing happens.

check the connection, if you have the ps2 plugged in and it wont turn on it would be best to return it or have someone look at it.

PS2 slim on component video showing green screen.

Try to change cable sometimes can happen.Troubleshooting the issue is the best you can do.
Unplug the connector and use another one or since ps2 is a common machine bring over one of your friend and try to find out what`s happened.Can be your tv as well...that`s why i`m telling you the best way is to ask your friend to use the tv and the cable to make sure nothing is wrong with your machine

Connecting online with ps2 slim

On some models, the Ethernet comes from a PC board searate from the Motherboard. Now you can get a motherboard replaced for under $60. Check out the playstationclinic. Nothing you can really do if the Ethernet Chip is blasted.
