Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console

1 Answer

Broken switch at back. Where to get a cheap replacement part.

My other half kindly volunteered to help repair my console V15 (77003)....ended up breaking the switch at the back (top came off the switch) that tells the laser to go do it's stuff.  I'm not happy:o( especially since I just put a new laser in.
What I want to know is where I can get the part either in the UK or somewhere reliable elsewhere.  I live in an area that is short of everything.

Hi, I am having a problem with my rf adapter for my sega genesis specifically the end is broken off how should i fix it?

  • Well, if it broke off right flush with the pack then you would have to split the pack and re-soldier the wires on. This can be a big pain. No easy way but to carefully split it open. The original adapters sort of split in half.
  • There is a little flex part on the end of the wire before the actual adapter. If it broke off there then you can carefully splice off the little end piece lengthwise making sure not to cut the wire itself.
  • When that is removed then you can splice the two wires together. I recommend soldiering them together and insulating with shrink tube. Electric tape will work temporarily (see photo)


  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

Gearshift seems to have broken connection with gears. Can it be fixed (ie, broken linkage) or does it need to be replaced?

there is a common problem with the shift cable bushing. so take out the console and examine the connection between the cable ends and the shifter levers. possibly the cheap little repair kits they sell on ebay for less than 20 bucks will set you right. if the cables themselves are broken, you need to get another set of those, cheaper at autozone or advance than at a dealer.

Turns on but has black scratchy screen

Make sure that the console has its A/V cables plugged into the back of the console and the television, if it is and xbox 360, make sure the switch at the end of the base is turned to the right tv type.
There also may be a problem with your A/V cable which can be solved by buying a new cable they are cheap and won't set u back much. Let me know if this helps. :-)
