    I have a similar problem to this. I just bought a brand new power cord for my ps2 slim, plugged it in and it turned on perfectly fine, I played guitar hero for a good fifteen minutes, then it started having video issues which were minor, and it said to make sure the controller was in the port properly, which my guess is that that had to do with a controller issue, then for no reason, my ps2 slim shut itself off. I went to check on it, the red light wasn't on, which normally would indicate that no power is being directed to the machine. But it was plugged in, and I felt it with my hand, and it wasn't overheating at all. Help??

Check to make sure your power cable is securely in, and check for any damage in the cable

SOURCE: PS2 RESET

I believe this one needs at least a good Detailed cleaning inside the case, and if that does not fix it, then a new motherboard.

 

If you want I can do a full Detail cleaning for $32, including return shipping and 90 day warranty.  If you need a motherboard, the charge is $52 including return shipping and 90 day warranty.

SOURCE: ps2 not spinning and light turning green then back to red

Hi

Your PS2 is probably experiencing a short circuit on the motherboard or the Emotion Engine is burned up. Sometimes the fan goes dead and the PS2 overheats and shuts down showing the red light. You can open the PS2 and clean up the motherboard and maybe it will recover.

On switch button turns green and immediatley turns off again. My disc in the beggining stoped spinning eventhough i can here it trying to spin


Can you hear the fan spinning on the inside of the PS2? If the PS2 comes on, loads the disc, then shuts itself off, chances are it is overheating and shuts off to prevent damage. There is a small fan on the inside of the Slim PS2 that keeps it cool.

If you press the reset switch and it goes from red to green and immediately back to red without ever turning on, your motherboard is shot. ESD damage.

Gamestop Edge PS2 Wireless controller wont work. New batteries and the square control (router) box just keeps blinking green. I pressed the button for reconnect and it still does nothing I need...


If the light on the controller is flashing then the batteries are still good. There is a small reset button on the receiver that came with the controller. use a needle to reset it while it is still in the ps2. make sure that the ps2 is turned on and the green light is flashing on it. it should blink a few times and then the light on the controller should turn red. once it does then press start and your good to go.
Hope this helps!

Faulty button, fuse. Try a new power cable, if that doesnt work then it will need a new on/off switch.
