Ps2 slim troulbe

Hey, when everything is hooked up right (the power cord to the back plugged into the wall, and the AV cables hooked up) the ps2 looks fine, but when i try to turn it on, the red light on the Power switch turns green for a second then turns red again. What is going on?

Well maybe you put the wrong colors on! Or maybe you could just go to best buy or the store you got it from and exchange it, or git your money back!!!

I need a printable version of how to hook everything up. Please. We have a PlayStaion2

  1. Place your ps2 in an area that will allow for plenty of airflow, and is relatively close to the television that you intend on hooking it up to.
  2. Step 2 Check your TV or monitor for available video inputs. The most common are composite cords, which come with a new PS2. This cord has one plug on one side, with the other side having three ends colored yellow, white and red.
  3. Step 3 Plug the single end of the video cord into the back of the PS2. Plug the other side of the cord into the corresponding colors in your video input on your television.
  4. Step 4 Plug the AC adapter (power cord), into the back of the PS2. The other side of the cord should then be plugged into the wall. A red right will appear on the front of the PS2, signaling that it is on standby mode, and receiving the required power.

What do that mean if yor ps2 tuns green then go back red

is it a slim PS2?
did it shock you when you touched the standby button?
if so, just unplug the power cord from the wall and wait a couple minutes before plugging back in.

hope this helps :p

if not, then you might have to replace the power/eject ribbon cable.
maybe someone more knowledgeable has better suggestions?

Power failuer

Check the outlet, power cord and ps2. Also, PS2 slims dont have fans so it could just be overheated, so just wait an hour or so, should fix it.

Ps2 slim will not power up

usually, there is a problem with a ribbon cable of power/reset switch. Try using a replacement ribbon of the same type.

About my ps2.

Hi Jzone,


I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in.   Procedure is different for Slim PS2. 


  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws.  These are little square pieces or square rubber pads.  You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. REmove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray.  Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the REset/Eject buttons.  Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact. 
  7. Remove the Cd tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the Cd area.  Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens.  All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. REmove the little white disc from the Cd tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it,  Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and your in business.

If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to the Playstation Clinic for Repair.  Contact
