Playstation 2 won't power up!

I was playing my ps2 while the wind was blowing kinda hard, there was no lightning, when all of a sudden the power blinked off really quickly and the tv and ps2 flickered off. The tv powered up immediately but, the ps2 lost power and never has regained it. Any help?

Re: playstation 2 won't power up!

I'm guessing your ps2 got surged with electricity and its now broken. Looks like you might have to buy a new one :/ sorry.

Bought a ps2 on ebay and the parental control is on level 4. previous owners don't know the code and I don't eaither and I cant play any dvds. I tryed 7444, which is sapposed to be some kinda deletion...

I'm not sure if you have tried this but try leaving the PS2 unplugged from any power source (no power cables attached) for approx. 72 hours. See if it clears it.

Will not read the disc

If you used to play those discs before and then suddenly it stops reading, then you might need to clean your lens that reads the disc.

Do you have a cd cleaner? Go and insert it and play for 30 seconds. It this still does not work, you can open your ps2 cover and manually clean the lens with a soft ear bud damped in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens surface. Also if you have a blower, you can blow those dust off.

My game plays fine until 5 minutes later and ten all of a sudden it stops

Hi craap,

Your cooling fan is not working. Look at it to see if it is blowing. Your PS2 is prbably full of dust and lint and needs a good cleaning inside.
