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.

Re: Did I fry it?

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.

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.

My slim playstation 2 is not working need answer quick

Haha i understand your distress :) if your slim ps2 is not turning on, first check and make sure that all your wires and stuff are all plugged in to EVERYTHING. also, make sure your outlet works too. corroded electrical outlets wont work. 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

hey there if you go here

you will be able to find the manuals for the ps2 on the 7000 series please refer to page 12 of the manual.

if its a fat model on the left hand part of the screen when you click the link you will see "playstation 3000-5000"

and you can select that and find the manuals that way.

For the ps2 fat version the model number is on the back of the unit and the ps2 slimeline version is on the bottom of the unit.

make sure your tv is set to the right channel or input device setting mode.
