PS2 Slimline Dies

I have a Ps2 slimline that comes on, plays for a few minutes then quits. The green light stays on and when I reset it comes back to the very first screen, then just before the "Playstation2" screen it dies. The disc continues to spin the green light stays on but the tv screen is black and no movement from the laser. Do these have an overheat switch that could be defective? I have worked on many ps2's but never encountered an issue like this. The laser is good as is the output.(checked with oscillscope). Some times it will play for and hour sometimes 2 minutes. There is no discernible pattern. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. LWB

My son has a ps2 slimline and wants to play on the internet. We have a linksys wireless routher already. Can the slimline be set up to use that or do we need something else


should be able to use linksys but i always just plugged in with a direct ethernet cord connection. you also have to have the online setup disk for ps2 which should have come with the ps2 slimline. just install disk and follow instructions from there! GOOD LUCK!

The problem is most commonly the ac power cord. I have a PS2 slimline and I had a power cord that fit into the slot and was completly similar to the original cord ,but you may need to order a new cord to solve your red light situation.

PS2 Green LED remains on, system won't turn on


have you tried holding down the reset button to turn off your console. Months before I bought my Ps2 I noticed my friends turning off their PS2's using the switch on the back. When i bought mine , months later i was invited to a friends house and noticed when he turned off his ps2 by holding the reset button down for a few seconds. After playing on their trampoline i went home and tried this reset button thing and it worked. Although i had the fat bulky ps2 this trick also works on slimline models too. This should solve your problem. The switch on the back i later found out was for when you wanted to turn off your ps2 during a thunderstorm.

First off get a network adaptor)if u hav the slimline then it comes with it. Then u need 2 buy a ethernet cable. Now that you hav both turn off ur computer and router and ps2. connect the cable to the back of the router and to the back of the ps2. Then turn the router and modem on. Then turn the ps2 on. Finally place the start-up disk(which was given to you with your ps2) in your ps2 and follow the on screen directions.
