Willjan1,

Check both your ribbon cable and your power adapter -- chances are that one or the other is in need of replacement.

If you can, take the unit to a video gaming store and ask them to test it for you.

They will be able to tell you which is bad and they will have the replacement product(s) you need.

Hi Willjan1,

Your motherboard is shot. You need to get another motherboard and install it.

Sharp LC40LE600E wont turn on


Had exact same symptoms as Keran. Turned out to be my daughter had turned the TV off with the other power switch which is a button on the right hand side of the set - we always use the rocker switch on the left hand side and had forgotten about the button. Turned the rocker switch on, then the button and it was back to normal.

Ps2 slim


Hi ataBringiton,
I believe your PS2 has a short circuit and needs another motherboard. If you can do this yourself, that’s great. You can find Motherboards or PS2 like yours that will not read discs but
will boot up for about $25 on Ebay. If you’re not comfortable with Changing out your motherboard, then click on the "Repair directory" at the bottom of this screen. On the Repair Directory Screen, select Video Game Consoles. Choose a good Repair shop.

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 Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
