Hi, i am just wondering if you could help me? I've recently bought several in-car power adaptors for my slimeline PS2 and each one has overheated blown the fuse After about half an hour of using them.

That PCB is pretty basic, so if you are good at soldering tiny parts, IN PRINCIPLE, you should be able to fix it. That said, you must be certain that the switch itself is working and that the PCB is OK. Use a multimeter to check connectivity and functionality. To avoid the hassle, yes, it might be a good idea to just buy a new PCB, but be sure to be careful when disconnecting and reconnecting the ribbon cable, as it is very fragile.
What do you have to hold down, the cord from the adaptor to the machine or the cord from the plug to the adaptor?
Did you get a shock when you first tried holding the cords down?
The cords are pretty thick and the insulation should not peel off at all unlees you are also twisting the cord.
Also if you lay the console flat instead of using the stand the problem may clear up, because you won't be twisting the cord.
