Hi,
Try a different output cable/lead may be faulty.
Also double check, any on-board ribbon cables in the PS2 itself.
If non of this works Video Chip may have blown.
This can sometimes be seen under close inspection ( burn mark on 1 or more Corners) .

    Hey,

    No problem, go for the easiest fix first.

    if you get no video out on a different lead/cable or t/v.

    I,d suspect the graphics chip.

    The only other opt, is to check the mating pins at the back of the console ( cable out ) ocassionally a lower pin to cable not mating.

    i,m here to help. any assistance, feel free to contact me.

    Good luck Mike @ Compurepair.

I am able to play PS1 games on my lim PS2, but why can't I save the games (even though the card is suitable for a normal PS2 console)?


You will need to go out and buy a psONE memory card or in some cases you can format a ps2 memory card to keep playstation one game saves on the card.

They are really cheap on ebay and amazon. Even a generic should be fine.

Comment if you need any help or have any more questions.

Try burning your own cds, you can burn them and they have no region attached to them, so they should work in any ps2, anywhere.

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
