Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

Did I fry it?

Just bought a 7000 Series PS2 on saturday and mixed up its power cable with my laptop's today. My laptop uses 18-20 volts and the PS2 uses 8.5. Now the disc won't spin and the laser won't move. Did I fry it beyond repair? What's a repair like that cost?

There wasn't any popping or smoke or anything when my wife plugged in the wrong cord and turned it on. It would read the memory cards with the wrong plug in, but like I said - discs won't spin and laser won't move. Switching back to the correct power cord didn't help either.

Hi hamstermann,
Fried like bacon is about all I can say.
Thats alot of volts going through something like that.
Not sure what a 7000 series costs,
but hopefully you have warrenty to cover it.
Just between you and me, dont tell them you messed up the cord.

Most power adapters are able to run the Euro 220v @50/60hz but make sure. The "Input" side should say 110-240V and 50/60hz if it says only 110v and 60hz then you power supply will not work in Germany. Also check to see if the "output" on your power cord is the same as what is your laptop is. I have mixed up power adapters before and it will simply not work. If you try and plug it in it will fry it. If you have to grab a new power adapter the best store i can think of is a place called Saturn Electronik kinda like Germany's Best Buy. It has a hazard orange sign most times.

Ps2 110 volts and i plug it in 220 volts


hi if your saying you have got an american or other ps2 that runs off 110v and you have plugged it into a 220 volt mains supply then the chances are the ps2 is now fried, if it was like an xbox and had a power pack then it would only be the power pack at fault, how ever as the ps2 plugs direct to the mains then the chance of getting this working is pretty slim unless you replaced most parts on the circuit board, what i would do is sell it as faulty and buy another one as it would cost more to get this fixed than it would to get it replaced.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Disc won't turn on PlayStation2 7000 series


if you look through the forums you will notice alot of people are having the same problem. The laser on the ps2 gives out usually b4 anything else. however, try a cleaning disc and of course a different game before discarding the system. Replacing the laser would cost more than a new system. you could get a used ps2 for 25-50 bucks used from a pawn shop but make sure they test it first.

No power, no lights on laptop


I think you should check the real power supply ... 120 V in and what comes out ... volts (ac - dc) and amps or what fraction of an amp.

Please compare the old with the new power supply. The new power supply should be the same volts - same kind (AC or DC) and at least the same amp rating. You can use higher amp rating but not lower - lower will burn up - literally)

Volt meter ... always set it above the suspected voltage. Batteries are always DC. Houses, buildings, etc always AC. Power supplies - could be mixed - ac in and dc out.

So if you were measuring in your home, you set the meter to 130 or higher on the AC scale. If you were doing your auto, 24 volts DC (or so).

House current, probe color doesnt make any difference. Should read about 120 Volts between the narrower (or right side/ground down orientation) or the two slots and the wider of the two shots (wide should be the neutral side - ground on the bottom). You can prove the hot side by measuring to the ground. White wire to ground = no reading. Black wire to ground = 120 volts. (The black and white are INSIDE the electric outlet. You can use either probe to do the measurement.

I hope this helps you.

If you have more question, please let me know.

Thanks for using fixya.com

Also, make sure your PS2 cooler is not blocked in any sort of way. if you need any more issues, just ask :) ~~RJ~~

PS2 bought in the US


hi if your using original disk then you dont have to worry, regarding power its common that 240 volts devices has a autovolt feature you should try to take a look at the back of the console and if your ps2 is 120v or 110 you should use a transformer if your putting it to 220v outlets because if you dont your ps2 will be ruined, thankyou and have a nice day and Godbless you
