I had the same problem and it turned out it was the cooling fan not running due to a bit of plastic stuck in it. There must be a thermal overload that shuts the machine off if it starts to overheat. My machine was fine after |i got the fan working again. Seems like you have the same problem.

I believe there might be a problem with the power connector where you first turn on your system in the back. There is either a shortage or something inside has fried. Best thing to do is to have a gaming tech take a look at your system.

I have a Pelican Predator PL697 (one without a channel switch) for PS2, and my controller had been working perfectly, until the channel got stuck on the Player 2 channel, which completely ruins any chance...


1, Was there no place to post questions about the PS2? Your pic is suggesting the PS3. This controller is definably not for the PS3.2, I've had one of these controllers for the PS2 though, and think I can help. Try taking all other controllers out, or disabling them, then while holding the connect button, insert the receiver in the controller #1 port on the PS2. It should auto sync to player 1.

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

Movie Won't Transfer Over to My Computer


Well it took me over an hour to figure this one out. Loathingly I loaded the Canon software onto my computer. Then instead of using the card reader in my hard drive I used the USB cable that came with the camera. I downloaded the movie onto my hard drive through the USB cable and PRESTO, it played perfectly on my computer with no problem. Hope that helps.

It is best when finished with one game and moving to another game to reset your PS2 console before starting the new game. This way your sure to have fresh uninteruppted memory.
