Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

Orange light I resently bought a new power/reset button for my slim ps2. When I reconnected everything the power light thats supposed to be red is orange. I've tried holding the power button for 30sec, and even replaced the old power/reset button. The old one turns red like normal. Then I reconnected the new............, its still orange. The controllers are not connected and I also put a disk in to see if that worked... no picture no nothing but an orange light. Do you know about this problem? Please help. Thanks

Re: orange light

The orange light is for you to know that the plastation2 is working unless it is not reading the disk then you etheir take it back or tip it over on its side then let it do the rest or if that dont work then it either broke or if you get it to work then you are alright at games.................. thats all the info i have on that........ there you go.

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~~

Many Problems regarding PS2 Slim

Hi NateQ, Sorry about no one paying attention to your problem for so long. I just got started about a month ago. I have been repairing video Game consoles for over a decade though. Your problem is that your slim has a melted down laser and lens assembly. The unit is dirty. You will need a new disc drive and a thorough cleaning to get it back in service. The problem about the power light is due to excessive dust buildup shorting out the components on the motherboard. The video output is also comprimised by dust and dirt. The disc spinning is possibly comprimised by hair wrapped around the disc drive spindle. If you want, I can thoroughly detail clean your PS2 slim and replace the disc drive for $38 plus shipping both ways. Contact
